Make an inexpensive eye mask using parsley to help brighten under-eye circles.
Parsley is rich in Vitamin K, which can reduce blood flow to the eye area when applied. According to Audrey Kunin, M.D., and founder of DERMAdoctor.com, that blood flow is one reason for under-eye circles.
She explains that the fatty tissue under our eyes thins over time, which makes blood vessels more visible. And it is their slightly bluish color that gives the illusion of circles under the eyes.
Parsley Eye Mask
1 small handful of fresh parsley
2 Tbsp. plain yogurt
Combine the parsley and yogurt in a food processor or blender. Pulse until a paste is formed. Gently apply to under-eye area, relax for 20 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
Try this once a week to brighten up your under-eye skin.
