    I’ve had dark eye circles for YEARS now, and even when I get enough sleep or use eye creams they still don’t go away, so I really hope this works!

    I hate my dark circles I find myself beautiful but the only thing that makes me feel not so pretty are my dark circles. HELP!!!!

    I’m sure this is a silly question, but do you think it would still work if you used instant potatoes? They’re still potatoes, just grated and dehydrated. I was just curious if you were to make a paste with the instant potatoes (just a little thicker/dryer than you would make to eat) if this remedy would still help. I’m sure it won’t work as well, but even if it only works half as well, I’d be happy. What do you think? Maybe I’ll just go ahead and try it and let you all know what I find out..

      I think this is worth a try and I’m going to use organic potato’s as I believe the contents of each potato may produce more effective results as they have not come into contact with man made chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
      Please take this tip on board tho that the dark circles are closely related to kidney maintenance of your body. If you don’t eat, drink and cook healthy your kidneys cant preform as well. Its like running your car engine with dirty oil or washing your clothes in a bucket of muddy water, the results wont be the same.
      Poached organic eggs a really good food to start with as they help repair kidneys. This is the tip of the ice berg and you have not to over cook foods and kill all the goodness like using microwaves. I started off reading “The worlds healthiest foods” after suffering a horrible head injury and that book has made a big difference with how healthy and great I feel now, with the addition of exercise. I researched all the best foods, how to cook and store them and what they did and then made all of my own favourite recipes out of this info. Anyways I cant keep typing any more but I hope this helps you Mr or Mrs reader =8-) .. oh by the way the author of that book was – George Mateljan – Take it easy and look after yourself x

    Oh yeah! This really works! Strawberries (or Strawberry Jam) works as well. Try them both with some coffee ( a dieretic ) in the morning, and I think you will he pleased!! No more puffy eyes!!

    Did you try the potato one? Try putting ice on them before bed and after you wake up.
    Let me know how it works.
