If people are constantly asking you why you look so tired, then maybe it's time to get rid of the puffy dark circles under your eyes.
Eye puffiness, eye bags, and dark circles have many causes, some of them being a cold, sinus infection, seasonal allergies, sleep deprivation, or the fact that you spent several hours sobbing uncontrollably in your bedroom after watching a super-sad movie the night before.
Most commonly, you can place cold cucumber slices directly on your closed eyelids for 10-15 minutes to help reduce the circles under your eyes, or something similarly cold like cold potato slices, chilled tea bags, cold metal spoons, or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel.
For a more esoteric self-spa treatment, you can also use crushed mint leaves, almond oil, or a cotton ball soaked in rose water to help reduce eye puffiness.
If the dark circles under your eyes persist, you may want to consider seeing a doctor to ensure that the dark eye circles are not indicators of a more serious problem than not having a good night's sleep.
