Today, we will discuss how to tackle and get rid of dark circles that men face, which seem to creep up on you after a weekend of partying, a couple of long nights in the office or endless life & health challenges. These tips and pointers will truly be in your favor as you finally declare battle on those troublesome and panda reminiscent dark circles. So, let’s get down to business!
How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles For Men?
Here are 6 simple tips to get rid of men’s dark circles.
1. Ice Cubes
It’s not meant to chuck into your Diet Coke. Ice cubes can do a really good job at minimizing male dark circles. Simply hold them in a paper towel and rest them under your eyes for five to ten minutes. The instant hit of coolness will get the blood flowing in this area and help eliminate your dreaded panda look.
2. Cool It With Rosewater
Rosewater cools and tones the undereye area thus relieving tired eyes and reducing temporary dark circles.
3. Drink Plenty Of Water
Hydration is key to overall skin health and this is no different when it comes to removing dark circles. Drink plenty of water when you’re greeted with dark circles and give your skin a complete hydration.
A good healthy workout can do wonders for your overall health, not excluding your skin. Get those muscles pumping with a cardio workout or weights session and your vessels will become more responsive to your increase in heart rate and ultimately reduce the darkness under the eye.
5. The Frozen Spoon
For a quick action, keep a spoon in the freezer and place it underneath your eyes if dark circles and puffiness is causing havoc throughout your day. A five minute stint over each contour has been proven to reduce dark circles by up to 85% for up to seven hours.
6. Fix Nasal Congestion
Having a blocked nose can result in dark circles – a fact that you may not have been aware of. As the veins around your sinuses expand, eye darkness often erupts. Make sure you’re keeping your blocked nose n check if you want to fight off those grooming blues.

Treatments For Dark Circles And Eye Bags In Men
While it is difficult to eliminate dark circle appearance completely, there are now effective options which Dr. Niteen Dhepe can recommend, which can substantially improve your appearance.
1. Chemical Peeling:
Chemical Peels have also been used to renew skin around the eyes, but are being used less and less to treat dark under eye circles because of the availability of laser treatments.
2. Intense Pulsed Light Treatment:
IPL treatment reduces dark circles by destroying the pigment cells that cause discoloration. The light waves constrict blood vessels, which results in less prominent discoloration.
3. Laser Treatment:
Laser treatment is another effective way to remove dark circles. Post the treatment, the skin under the eye becomes smooth and less discolored.
Eye surgery for dark circles is known as blepharoplasty wherein the under eye fat deposits are removed, resulting in less puffiness, less discoloration, and more lively eyes.

Home Remedies To Treat Dark Circles In Men
Healthy skin means good-looking skin and less noticeable under-eye bags and dark circles. There are lots of steps you can take to work toward healthier skin overall. But of course, there are some specific steps men can take to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles. So, without further ado, here are our top most effective tips.
1. Massage your eyes
Using your ring and pinky fingers, gently massage the skin around your eyes. This helps to keep fluids and blood from building up in your blood vessels. Remember to be gentle. We recommend giving yourself a five-minute eye massage after you’ve applied a cold compress.
2. A DIY Face Mask
Don’t think that facial masks are just for women. They’re also for you if you want healthier skin. Be open-minded and give it a shot, guys. You can make a homemade face mask out of everything from avocado and papaya to yogurt and mud.
3. Dietary Intake
It’s no secret that your diet has a huge impact on your overall health. Eat as many fruits and veggies as possible, and cut down on junk food and alcohol.It’s especially important to keep your salt intake low.
4. Use a Tea Bag
Drink the tea or not, but definitely, reuse the tea bag. Teas high in caffeine have long been used as a natural treatment for dark circles and puffy eyes. Of course, the tea bags should be steeped as directed, then cooled in a refrigerator or freezer before applying over each closed eye.
5. Cold Milk
Milk has incredible properties that can exfoliate, cleanse, condition, moisturize, and nourish your skin. Soak cotton balls in fresh, cold milk, and cover your dark circles with them. Leave them on for 20 minutes, then rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Repeat this three times a day for a few weeks.
