How to use baking soda to get rid of dark circle






Before we jump into the recipe, it’s important to understand WHY people get dark circles. There are a few different culprits:

Genetics – some people are just pre-disposed to dark circles
Not enough sleep – obvious, but one of the most common reasons
Dehydrating – not drinking enough water will cause the blood vessels around the eyes to shrink and therefore the area will darken.
Bad diet – a diet high in sugars and carbohydrates retains water and can dry up the skin.


Benefits of Baking Soda for Dark Circles:
A natural lightener, baking soda is basically a type of gentle, natural bleach which will lighten the area.
Gently exfoliates to soften and brighten the skin.
Is anti-septic and anti-inflammatory therefore also reducing puffiness.
Balances pH level of the skin, resulting in smoother, softer, and clearer skin.


Ingredients:
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp room temperature chamomile tea or filtered water


Directions:
In a small bowl, mix the baking soda with the liquid of your choice.
Mix until a runny paste forms. You may need to add a little more liquid or a little more baking soda. Play around with the mixture until you get a runny paste.
Dip a cotton ball or pad into the mixture and gently dab underneath the eyes.
Leave on for at least 20 minutes or even overnight.
Gently rinse and pat dry.
Repeat once a day for 2 weeks, and every other day thereafter until you no longer see dark circles.
