3 Best Under Eye Dark Circle Removal Creams You Should Try!


We get loads of under eye dark circle removal creams in India but you will be amazed to know that you can easily make your own at home too. The skin around our eyes are so delicate that even minute changes in our lifestyle affects it leading to dark circles. The skin around our eyes are 4 times thinner than the rest of our skin so we should take great care of it else it will lead to dark circles very quickly. Some of the common reasons for getting dark circles are lack of sleep, stress, excessive sun exposure, allergies, dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, ageing, drinking, smoking and genetics. I get dark circles whenever I am stressed, few weeks back my son had dengue fever and it stressed me out completely. His blood pressure and platelet count kept plummeting though he didn't have fever and till the platelet count started the uptrend I was always tensed. I was surprised how just a few stressful days affected my skin, I had slight dark circles around my eyes and my skin looked shallow and lifeless. Once my son got back to his normal self, my stress levels came down and I started using this homemade eye cream regularly at night to help fade dark circles. It helped so much and within a few days my skin was back to normal. Usually I make under eye creams with aloe vera gel, vitamin e oil and an extract. I change up the extract depending on what I have at home, I use either cucumber extract, green tea or rice water. Aloe vera gel is one of the best things to use on the delicate under eye skin as it is very soothing and nourishing. Vitamin e oil fades dark circles so well and all the three extracts (cucumber, rice water and green tea) added to the cream, greatly helps fades dark circles and also helps nourish the skin as they are full of antioxidants. I usually make a small batch and leave it in the refrigerator and it lasts for around 10 days. Make sure to use the eye cream every day night after removing all make up if you want to get rid of dark circles quickly. Also along with applying this cream, try to reduce stress, eat healthy and sleep well to see fast results....


This is the basic under eye dark circle removal cream recipe, you can choose any one of the extract I have given below to make the cream.

1. Take 1 tbsp of Aloe Vera gel in a bowl. Try to use an aloe vera gel that is free of color and perfume. I would suggest using store bought gel else it will not form into a cream. Now add in the contents of 1 vitamin e capsule to it .

2. Add 1/2 tbsp of the desired extract to it and mix well. At first the mixture will be very lumpy.

3. Continue mixing and it will form a wonderful smooth cream. Your homemade, pure under eye cream is ready.


1. Cucumber Under Eye Dark Circle Removal Cream:

a.Take a fresh organic cucumber, wash and cut into big chunks.

b. Grind to a coarse paste in a blender without adding any water.

c. Strain to get fresh cucumber extract. Use the extract to make the cream. Cucumber based creams are very cooling.

2. Green Tea Under Eye Dark Circle Removal Cream:

Make double strength green tea by pouring 1/4 cup of recently boiling water over a tsp of green tea leaves. Let it steep for 5 minutes and strain. Let cool completely and use to make the cream. Green tea based creams are great for nourishing and improving the blood circulation around the eyes.

3. Rice Water Under Eye Dark Circle Removal Cream:

To make rice water, boil rice in a pot with plenty of water instead of rice cooker. Once done,  strain out the water. This is called rice water, let cool completely and use it to make the cream. Rice water based eye creams are very very soothing.

  • Since we are adding fresh extract, the cream should be refrigerated.
  • If you don't refrigerate, the cream will last only for 2 days.
  • You can also make the extract with your favorite herbs too. 
  • Use the eye cream every day night before going to bed consistently to see results.
