Dark circles, despite being normal and natural, are truly unappealing and annoying.
While women have the option to conceal them with makeup (and a lot of them do too), men who aren’t up for applying concealers have only one option and that is to banish them naturally.
Sure you can try the home remedies to reduce your eye bags and dark circles or get the cosmetic treatment done by a professional, the thing that helps you in the long run and actually prevent them from coming back are the healthy lifestyle changes that you should be incorporating in your day to day life.
Here are some lifestyle habits that can help reduce and even prevent dark circles naturally:

1. Hydrate More
Drinking more water in a day is beneficial for skin, health and hair and can help treat your dark circles too. A dehydrated body retains water and the undereye area is also one of the most dehydrated spots which ultimately causes dark circles. Make sure you are hydrated.
2. Get Adequate Sleep
If you are burning the midnight oil working till late or binge-watching episodes until the sun comes up, you are inviting the dark circles. A healthy habit of sleeping on time and getting enough hours of rest can help big time.
3. Have Proper Diet
Some foods are bad for your skin and may be aggravating your dark circles like alcohol, caffeine, and salty foods. Instead, include foods rich in natural diuretics or water content like celery, cucumber and watermelon in your diet.
4. Avoid Smoking
Believe it or not, smoking makes your skin woes worse and dark circles are just one of them. It not only causes or worsens dark circles but also other premature ageing problems like wrinkles, fine lines and more.
5. Use The Right Skincare Products
Sunscreen and eye cream are a must and if you are not using either, it’s time you add them to your stash. While SPF protects the under-eye area from sun damage and further darkening of the skin, an eye cream hydrates and brightens the area.
