Take some cold pressed castor oil  and apply a thin coat on the baseline of your eyes, using an eyeliner brush.

​Packed with Vitamin-E, proteins and other nutrients, castor oil naturally moisturises and rehydrates the baseline of your eyes, helping eyelashes grow quickly. 

Use this natural remedy at night (2-3 hours before bedtime) for best results.

2.Use tea bags to reduce puffiness

More From Cosmopolitan

Both, green tea and black tea have anti-inflammatory properties that soothe skin, reduces swelling and redness around your eyes.

Take two tea bags and soak them in warm water. Next, refrigerate them for about half an hour. Place these cold tea bags over your eyes for 10-15 minutes. Follow this treatment twice a day.

3.Eat right

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables that are packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy eyes.

Some superfoods for boosting eye health are carrots, leafy greens (kale, spinach etc.), papaya, cold water fish, eggs, almonds, citrus fruit and berries, etc.

4.Take adequate rest

It's important to give some rest to your peepers to avoid puffiness and fatigue.

 If you spend a lot of time staring at the computer/laptop/ smart phone screen, try the 20-20-20 rule. Focus on something at least 20 feet away, for 20 seconds, after every 20 minutes. This technique helps reduce eyestrain.

Also, blink as much as you can to moisten your eyes and keep them refreshed.

5. Use tomatoes to get rid of dark circles

Tomato juice has excellent bleaching properties.

Just take one teaspoon of tomato juice and mix it with one and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply this mixture on your dark circles and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. 

For best results, use this remedy twice a day for 2 - 3 weeks.
