Sunken eyes are a common condition that occurs around the eyes as we age. This is also caused due to other reasons such as stress, dehydration, poor diet or lack of sleep. People with sunken eyes can look very unhealthy and exhausted. Natural home remedies offer some treatments that can help get rid of deep sunken eyes effectively.


Tip 1:

Slice raw potato into thin layers and keep on the eyes for at least 30 minutes. This will give essential nutrients and vitamins to the skin and help to soften the delicate skin under the eyes.

Almond oil is rich in vitamin E. Apply 1 teaspoon of almond oil on the skin aroud the eyes before going to bed. This will help in toning the skin under the eyes and makes it look healthy.

Tip 3:

Tea bags are very effective for treating sunken eyes. Keep warm or cold tea bags on your eyes, leave them for few minutes and wash your face with cool water. This gives relaxation to the eyes and helps improve circulation of blood around the eyes, and thus reduces pigmentation and dark circles.

So everyone here commenting, are they actually reading the tips? You all are asking how to treat sunken eyes but not mention anything about attempting these remedies. Have you all tried these tips and they still haven't worked for you? Would be a great start for others with the right answers to know all the facts about you.
