  • The next day, filter the liquid and save the oil.
  • Soak a cotton ball in the oil and apply it to the bags until your eyes.

We can’t talk about natural healing products without talking about the properties of aloe vera. This is one of the most suitable natural products for your skin, particularly if you’re treating bags and dark circles.

If you have an aloe plant at home, don’t hesitate to use some of the gel from the leaves to fight under eye circles and bags. It’s a natural and very effective solution.

6. Chamomile and witch hazel
