It’s no surprise that one of the most common skincare routines today is to target dark circles and bags under the eyes. We can’t help but look for quick fixes to make our skin look brighter, smoother and more rested. But is it a good idea to use old family tricks like frozen spoons against dark circles? It may sound strange and even too good to be true, but we are here to explore all the possibilities!

In this blog post, we’ll take on the challenge of testing some age-old remedies using freezing scoops on an experimental basis — choosing how safe they are while evaluating the results they deliver. Let’s put aside the conventional wisdom, dive into the experiment and find out if this much talked about technique really works or not by analyzing its pros and cons!

Putting cold spoons under the eyes to reduce dark circles is a wonderful grandmother’s trick.

Applying a cold spoon to the eye contour is an age-old trick passed down from grandmothers to their grandchildren for generations. Not only does it fade dark circles, but it also helps reduce puffiness, which can be beneficial if you’ve been crying or sleep deprived. It is not surprising that this simple gesture remains a remedy of choice in today’s world; it’s efficient, eco-friendly, and the spoons are easy to find in any home. Just chill two metal spoons in the fridge or run them under cold water. Then, just gently press each one onto the skin around your eyes and lay down for a few minutes – after which, you can say goodbye to your dark circles!

As soon as they go into the fridge, the miraculous effect of the spoons no longer holds!

Keeping metal spoons in the freezer might seem like an easy way to reduce dark circles under your eyes, but it’s actually not a good idea. One of the problems is that contact with extremely cold objects is not comfortable for delicate skin. These metallic objects can cause nerve damage, leading to tension headaches and migraines in the short and long term. Since freezing these spoons also involves wiping the condensation off them, this could also result in the transfer of bacteria from the condensation to your face. Finally, the habit of putting frozen spoons under the eyes could cause aggressive dehydration. Take our word for it: If your goal is to reduce dark circles, go for the first tip or try cold compresses or tea bags instead.

Three more natural concealer tips.

In addition to getting enough sleep and staying hydrated, you can try applying cucumber slices, coconut oil, or potato oil with your eyes closed. Cucumber slices should be held on the eyes for about 10 to 15 minutes, while potato slices should be left on for 15 to 20 minutes for maximum benefit. While coconut oil has strong nourishing and moisturizing properties that have been shown to lighten dark circles over time. Coconut oil can be used as a topical treatment or ingested for its internal benefits. With these tips and a few lifestyle changes, you’ll be looking awake in no time!

Do not forget to exert a draining massage on the contour of the eyes.

Dark circles can make a person look more tired than they are. Fortunately, a simple draining massage around the eyes can be an effective natural remedy to help reduce their appearance. This massage helps to drain the liquids accumulated around the eyes, which can lead to the appearance of dark circles. To perform this type of massage, use your index and middle fingers in a gentle circular motion, starting from the inside and working outward from the eye. Use upward strokes to target the lymph vessels. By performing this massage every day, you will get brighter and fresher eyes!
