Dark Eye Circles and Bags

Dark circles and bags under and around the eyes are not very attractive.  They make us look tired, sick, and older.  Perhaps worst of all, they make us self-conscious and undermine our sense of confidence.


Discoloration and puffiness around the eyes can be caused by a number of things, including genetics, irregular sleep patterns especially sleep deprivation, stress, fatigue, illness, allergies, improper diet, skin irritants, sun exposure and aging.

Identifying the Cause

Of course the best way to correct dark eye circles and bags is to identify and address the cause or causes, many of which are related to or reflective of lifestyle.

✏️ Meditation, mindfulness techniques and/or yoga can help with stress management

✏️ Sleep hygiene and hacks as well as certain herbs can help improve sleep

✏️ A diet that includes a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well certain dietary supplements, can help correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies

✏️ Drinking plenty of pure, clean water can help with dehydration

You can also look at a face mapping diagram for any clues to possible health issues.  For example, a shade of dark blue underneath the eyes can be a sign of adrenal fatigue.


There are many products on the market designed to temporarily conceal or reduce the appearance of dark circles or reduce puffiness. There are also many natural, at-home remedies that work temporarily but that also can also have a more long-term curative effect.


This infographic from StyleCraze illustrates some at-home, DIY natural remedies which utilize foods, beverages and other ingredients you probably already have at home, like cucumber, tomatoes, potatoes, almonds, tea bags and orange juice.  For more information and many additional natural remedies - 27 in all - please visit 27 Best Home Remedies to Remove Dark Circles Under Eyes Permanently.

Temporary Fixes for Sparse Brows

If you have sparse or no eyebrows because of plucking, waxing, shaving or an illness like adrenal fatigue, you have a couple of options.

You can use brow pencils, gel liners, cake powders and tints. Some women use waterproof lash lengthening and thickening mascara or even brush-on eyelash fibers to give their brows some color and volume.

The trouble with all of these types of products is that they are temporary and need to be applied every day.  Application takes time and a certain amount of skill so that brows look natural.  Re-application might be necessary after certain activities, like swimming or other exercise. Some products flake off or smear.

Additionally, many of these products can be pricey if they are good quality.

A More Permanent Solution

To avoid the hassle and expense of making eyebrows appear thicker, the best solution is a more permanent one:  grow, regrow, lengthen and thicken your brow hairs (or eyelashes for that matter).

This does require some dedication and patience but its well worth the effort.

Serums and Castor Oil

There are many brow and lash growth serums on the market yet the product that gets the most and best ratings is cold-pressed, organic castor oil.  You need look no further at Amazon to verify this.

Castor oil is rich in essential fatty acids, proteins and vitamin E and has been found to have several health and beauty benefits including triggering hair growth and promoting thicker hair.


This infographic from Good Health Academy explains a few uses of castor oil for hair health and growth as well as how to use castor oil to grow eyebrow hair.   Good Health Academy also has an in-depth and comprehensive article on using castor oil for eyebrows.  If you are thinking of using castor oil, please go to Castor Oil for Eyebrows - Everything You Need to Know (Good Health Academy).

Aging Skin

As we grow older, our skin ages as part of the natural aging process.  It is perfectly normal, for example, for fine lines to appear at some point.  It is thought that genes play a role in when certain changes - like thinness, dryness and fine lines - in our skin occur.

Aside from the natural aging process and genetics, environment plays a significant role in the health and appearance of our skin.  Our lifestyle choices have an impact on whether or not, and how much, our skin ages prematurely.

Some environmental and lifestyle factors that are considered to influence premature aging including exposure to sun, smoking, excessive alcohol intake, lack of exercise, an unhealthy diet and use of harsh chemicals.

How Does Skin Age?

While we understand that natural aging is normal, and we also are aware what influences and accelerates premature aging, how, why and where aging starts may not be as clear.

Understanding how skin aging actually occurs may help us to make smarter choices in terms of caring for our skin, including selecting skincare products.


This infographic from JeNu illustrates and explains the skin aging process in some detail.  For example, it defines and explains collagen, elastin, sebum and melanin.

It also offers some tips and suggestions on preventing premature aging of skin.
