Stress, age, lack of sleep, allergies and dehydration can all lead to dark under-eye circles. There are lifestyle changes that can reduce these circles over time, but when getting ready in the morning, a quick fix is needed. A few simple tricks can utilize ingredients you have around the house, as well as camouflage the bags that are making you look tired.

Dip two cotton balls in rose water and place them under your eyes for 10 minutes.

Start drinking water as soon as you wake up. Proper hydration can eliminate dark under-eye circles.

Rub moisturizer that contains vitamin E onto the dark circles.

Apply a concealer that has yellow undertones over your dark circles. Put on your makeup normally, but be sure to blend in the concealer completely.

Place raw potato slices onto your eyes in the evening for 10 minutes. This will prevent under-eye circles from coming back in the morning.
