Apply this pack on the clean face and neck and leave it to get dried fully. Once it does. Remove with water by rinsing it off.

5. Potato and cucumber juice remedy for dark circles

Potato and cucumber juice are both potential dark circle lighteners. Mix some potato juice and cucumber juice. Apply everyday at night under the eyes and over the eyelids if they are dark too. This quick and easy remedy for dark circles will make the darkness vanish. Eyes will be brighter and more awake looking.

Potato face packs are wonderful but potatoes can make the skin red temporarily and itching is also experienced. Therefore, these are not suitable for sensitive skin for the face though its juice diluted with some rose water or cucumber juice can be used under the eyes or for the neck and elbows. Cucumber face packs are better for sensitive skin or dry skin.

  2. Hi Baishali,

    You can try sandalwood with rose water face pack or turmeric and gram flour face pack for the sensitive skin. And for the dark circles, potato juice will work great. take a thin potato slice and rub on the dark circles and pimples marks at night. This is the easiest and most effective remedy.

  6. Hi Saurabh,

    You should use sunscreen daily as the darkening on the skin is due to sun’s UV rays.
    You can apply tomato juice everyday in the evening and wash after 1 hour. This will fade the tanning but do use sunscreen daily as this will prevent any further darkening of your skin.

  7. Thank you…..
    Can you suggest a gud sunscreen lotion which vil be helpful

  8. Try Lotus gel sunscreen with SPF 20. that is good.
