Cucumbers over the eyes are a classic spa treatment, and it turns out they aren't just for show. They actually soothe the inflammation that causes puffiness and dark circles. "Scientists have found that cucumber contains various antioxidants such as cucurbitacins, vitexin, orientin, and isoscoparin, not to mention vitamins C and K, all of which help reduce discoloration under the eyes," says Jeanette Jacknin, a holistic dermatologist and author of the in-home treatment guideSmart Medicine for Your Skin. Jacknin recommends chilling the cucumbers to maximize the effect. "The cool temperature reduces the accumulation of fluid under the eyes," she says.

Don't have cucumbers on hand? No problem. Jacknin says potatoes work just as well—possibly even better because they can stay cold for longer. And if you know how to grow potatoes at home, even better! They also have lots of vitamin C and other skin-nourishing nutrients that make them a great choice for soothing the irritated area beneath the eyes. To try Jacknin's method, put a potato in the freezer for 30 minutes, remove, and cut it into thin slices. Lie down and place a slice of chilled potato over each eye, covering the dark area underneath, for about 15 minutes.

Not into putting produce on your eyes? You can use tea bags as cold compresses, too. Not only will the cold temperature reduce puffiness, but research shows green tea also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm sensitive skin. Green tea is used in many cosmetic creams to help increase blood circulation and slow the appearance of aging.

Jacknin says avocados may help dark circles disappear if they're caused by dehydrated skin. "The nutritional fatty acids of avocados bring back moisture and elasticity to dry skin. They also stimulate blood circulation all around the eye, making dark circles and puffiness less intense," she explains.
