The Causes of Dark Circles and How to Get Rid of Them

Nobody likes dark circles, because they give face a tired and unhealthy look.
There are various ways to cover dark circles, but the most important thing is to treat the cause. In this article, you will learn about what may cause dark circles and how to treat them. 


naturalbeautyrec.blogspot.com, dark circles


So... let's start with possible causes!

Dark circles, in addition to being  the first serious sign of aging, often are the first signal that body sends to us if ther is some problem or disbalance. They may be the first indication of a more serious disease. Because of that, you should pay attention and distinguish them by shape, color, puffiness...

Some of diseases that will, among other things, cause dark circles are problems with kidneys, severe anemia, stress, cardiovascular diseases, smoking, passive smoking, excessive exposure to the sun...

Swollen dark circles

Dark circles that have swollen, are the most common indicator of water retention and creation of fatty tissue in the area around the eyes. If you have dark under eye circles for a long time, for example several months, and they have turned into hanging dark bags, it's the final moment to check your blood, because perhaps you are anemic. In fact, anemia is one of the most common causes of dark bags under the eyes, especially if accompanied by headache, fatigue, poor concentration, learning problems and poor memory. 

Check the kidneys and liver

Some of the causes of dark circles are problems with the liver and kidneys. So, if you have dark under eye circles with yellow-brown bumps, arrange to see your doctor as soon as possible. 


Perhaps it's allergy?

Even those allergic to pollen have problems with dark circles. In fact, they have the common neurodermatitis caused by frequently nose wiping and rubbing itchy eyes, and this contributes to development of pigmentation and irritation of the delicate eyelid skin.

Or maybe you just don't sleep enough?

Human body needs 6-8 hours of sleep. If you are sleep-deprived, you'll have the dark circles! So, try to organize your life to get some sleep!

...and maybe you're dehydrated?

Again with the numbers 6-8. As you need to sleep 6-8 hours, so you have to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day in order to stay healthy, and reduce those ugly dark circles!

These are the possible causes of dark cirles, but... how to treat them?

How to treat dark circles

As I mentioned before, drink plenty of water and make sure you get enough sleep! This is essential if you want to get rid of dark circles.

It is good to take multivitamins. Experts recommend B12, B6 and vitamin K.

If the cause is allergy, antihistamines will help you, but only with the advice and recommendation of your doctor.

Adjust your diet. Often we neglect that the skin is an organ and it's the largest one on the body. If you eat junk food, that will be visible on your face. Try to change your eating habits, by adding a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, try to add salmon to your diet, because it is rich in astaxanthin, a carotenoid that contribute to the increased elasticity, and also avocado and eggs because they are rich in biotin, or vitamin B7. Reduce salt intake because too much salt in the body can result in water retention and slowing the circulation, and thus the appearance of dark circles.
Also, try replacing coffee with green tea.

Breathe properly! The most important food of our blood is oxygen. Increased intake of nicotine into the body leads to reduced production of collagen and as a result you get wrinkles and reduced elasticity of the skin. Smoking also leads to a narrowing of blood vessels, and thus to a reduced supply of oxygen to the skin. So if you are a smoker, try to stop smoking, or at least reduce the amount of cigarettes.
You can also try breathing exercises, which you can see and learn more about, in this video by Acharya Shree Yogeesh.

Nourish your skin. Do not forget personal hygiene routine - cleansing and removing make-up, for which purpose you can use a bit of cotton wool moistened with a few drops of vegetable oil or vegetable milk. It is essential that preparations of natural cosmetics contain highly valuable base oils such as apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, pomegranate seed oil.

You can try to reduce dark circles, with one of the oldest recipes - using slices of cucumber. Thanks to the cold slices of this vegetable which is made up of 95 percent water, blood vessels will constrict and thus temporarily reduce puffiness under the eyes. This method is definitely the cheapest and extremely simple, but equally short-lived.

It is known that cold packs relieve the appearance of dark circles. So for baggy dark circles, put the slices of potatoes, pre-cooled in the refrigerator and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes.

Perhaps the best known method used to refresh tired eyes is chamomile tea. Put cooled down tea bags on your eyes, and hold them for 20-30 minutes. Green tea is equally effective. 

For wrinkles and dark circles, stir egg white and apply it gently around eyes. As the egg dries, you will feel the tension. Leave for twenty minutes, then rinse with cold water. 

And finally, there is makeup. You can use use a concealer to reduce their appearance. See how, in this video by Carli Bybel.

Good And Bad Drinks For Weight Loss

Do you know from which drinks you will build up additional pounds, and from which you will lose weight?

Learn in this article which drinks are good and which are bad for you...

Most people when thinking about any diet, think about a variety of food products that may or may not consume, the method of preparation, the intervals and the amount of consumption. Drinks are often generally defined and undefined, which in the end often results in misinterpreting what they can drink and what not.
However, the quantity and type of beverages consumed are equally important, while keeping certain diet, but also in everyday life and diet.





It is well known that water is the healthiest drink (if not polluted). It helps to cleanse the body, lose weight, reduce appetite, and generally has a positive impact on the body's metabolism in particular.

Vegetable juice 

Vegetable juices have nutritional value similar to that of fruit juices, but have approximately 50 percent less calories, but also a larger amount of salt. Also, freshly squeezed vegetable juices are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber that help in proper digestion, which can also help control hunger.

Black coffee 

If you need something to "lift" you during the day, drink a pure black coffee without sugar and other additives. The black coffee has very few calories and is a strong antioxidant. Of course, you should not overdo it with coffee - do not consume more than four cups a day.


Green tea 

If you don't like black coffee, try green tea, also without any sweeteners, except maybe some honey. It will "lift" you, and also, it has a strong antioxidant activity, which will help you lose weight. It's great for the regulating digestion and to raise immunity



Fizzy drinks

All these drinks are made from artificial flavors, with various different forms of sugar and sweeteners, and they have large amounts of calories. If you are a big fan of fizzy drinks, limit their intake to once a week for two to three deciliter.

naturalbeautyrec.blogspot.com, red bull, coca cola, sprite, fanta, vodka

Energy Drinks 

The truth is that these are drinks that provide energy for athletes, but precisely because they are calorie bombs. Avoid them when trying to lose weight, no matter if you exercise.

Various alcoholic beverages

Alcohol is highly caloric. Avoid it if you want to lose weight. If you wish to make a toast with friends, light beer is definitely the best choice. If you like non-alcoholic beer, order it.



Fruit juice 

Freshly squeezed juice from a fruit might have the same amount of calories as a soda, but there are more nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins ...). Although some diets prohibit and other diets allow the consumption of fruit juices, the ones from fresh fruit are certainly the healthiest.
Stay away from processed fruit juices with different fructose sugars and artificial sweeteners. If you are already buying fruit juice, buy one from natural bio farming



Mix in a blender banana, strawberries and blueberries with water or milk and you will get a great fruit drink, with plenty of calories. If you are on a diet, make smoothie at home, with skim milk or almond milk or even better - with water! Do not add sugar! You can sweeten it  with a small amount of honey. Note that this drink replaces one healthy meal. Stay away from purchasing smoothies, because they often contain artificial sweeteners, ice cream, whipped cream and a variety of different ingredients that are not healthy and they're just accumulating calories.

Which drinks are your favorite? Good or bad? :)

Teeth Whitening - Ultimate Guide

Bright smile and perfect white teeth without stains are the prettiest face decoration. Food, smoking and aging leave unsightly stains on the teeth and teeth whitening treatments are often too expensive and complicated. That's why I wrote this small guide to help you to whiten your teeth at home and preserve that whiteness.

teeth, whitening, naturalbeautyrec.blogspot.com

Let me start with food that is ruining the whiteness of teeth.

Foods that spoil the whiteness of your teeth

1. White and red wine - You may have thought that only red wine leave stains on the teeth, but the fact is that white wine is equally harmful to the beauty of enamel. The reason is simple - the wine contains tannins - they are very yellow and brown polyphenols that can attach to the tooth enamel and spoil the appearance of the teeth.

2. Black tea - Strong black tea may be tasty, but it contains tannins, as well as wine. Therefore, if you don't  want your teeth turn yellow, I recommend that you choose bright and mild herbal teas.

3. Coffee - There is no darker drink than coffee, so it is not surprising that this beverage really harms the beauty of your teeth. If you still can not imagine a day without coffee, try adding more milk, so at least alleviate the consequences.

4. Sodas
- Besides not being healthy for our body, soft drinks have a bad affect on the color of teeth. If you are drinking very cold soda, it will damage your enamel, which will become porous and easily absorb color.

5. Balsamic vinegar - Dark, tasty, healthy and ideal for leaving stains on the teeth. The good news is that when you use it with lettuce or spinach, you're drastically reducing its negative effects.

6. Tomato sauce - If you eat a lot of tomato sauce, your teeth will eventually begin to change color. The problem is not only in the color of tomato juice, but also in acidity it has, which affects the color of teeth.

7. Soy sauce - The commercial soy sauces are generally not made from soybeans, from but  varieties - soy proteins containing acid. Because of that, these non-organic soy sauces are not a good choice for the whiteness of your teeth.

8. Curry - It has a great taste, but you should know that curry is one of the biggest culprits for yellow stains on the teeth. Spinach will neutralize this effect of curry, and it can be consumed in combination without fear.

9. Beetroot is very rich in various vitamins and minerals, but a big problem brings their dark red color that will surely leave stains on your enamel. After drinking beetroot sure rinse your teeth with tap water or wash them in order to minimize the consequences.

10. Berries are very recommended in the diet, but when it comes to the beauty of the teeth, you should stay away from them. These couple of fruits have a large amount of color that stays on the enamel and spoils its whiteness.

It's not good to avoid these foods, because most of them are really good for health, but you can avoid stains on the teeth following these tips.


Tips for whiter teeth:

Eat crunchy food - Numerous fruits and vegetables, such as apples, carrots, celery and pears, can be a natural way to clean and whiten teeth because they contain acid.Crunchier food is, it is better to clean your teeth. Note that you need to eat raw the aforementioned foods in order to achieve the best effect. Therefore, chew an apple instead of cutting it or inserting in the juicer.

Increase your intake of dairy products - Results of recent scientific studies have shown that cheese, milk and yogurt contain minerals that strengthen teeth and improve their appearance. These include calcium and phosphorus, which strengthen tooth enamel.

Consume more strawberries - Strawberries contain malic acid, which removes the discoloration on the tooth surface. In addition, their texture polishes enamel, and that way contributes to its brighter appearance.

Use baking soda -  Although there are different opinions on its application, studies have shown how its limited use can improve the whiteness of teeth.

Drink through a straw - Various drinks can leave stains on the teeth. To avoid them, use a straw. This is to avoid direct contact of drinks and teeth, and ultimately preserve whiteness.

Stop smoking - Or at least reduce. Smoking causes the formation of pigmentation on the teeth, and in some cases leads to a complete change of teeth color. Can also cause gum disease, bad breath, tooth damage and tooth loss.

Avoid white wine - If you prefer white wine because you think red will stain your teeth, think again. White wine can also cause damage to the teeth. German researchers concluded that consumption of white wine, such as Chardonnay, is causing more damage to tooth enamel than red wine.

Drink water while eating - When you eat foods that stain, keep a glass of water. Rinse and sip after every few bites and sips will remove stains.

Brush your teeth - Never miss evening brushing your teeth and wash them as soon as possible after the meal. It would be good to have a toothbrush always with you. Or if you can't wear a toothbrush around, eat an apple. Eating an apple with a skin is similar to washing teeth.



Activated charcoal for teeth whitening

The effect of activated charcoal has long been known as a proven tool for cheap and fast method of teeth whitening. Activated charcoal can be found in pharmacies in the form of tablets.
Positive effects of activated charcoal are quickly visible - immediately after the first application, and if you follow the instructions, there will be no side effects.

What is activated charcoal?

Activated charcoal is one of the natural resources that has been used through history in the treatment of many diseases - dysentery, skin infections, poisonig and even for the consequences of radiation. Activated charcoal attracts and retains harmful substances. It is an ordinary charcoal.

Use for teeth whitening

Crush two tablets of activated charcoal, put it in a ceramic or glass container and add a few drops of water. Mix well, and you will get a paste.
Soak the brush to brush your teeth and wash them in the usual way for about two minutes. Rinse your mouth, and repeat the procedure. At the end carefully remove all traces of charcoal that are remaining between the teeth.
Another way to use the activated charcoal is to chew the tablet, and then wash your teeth, the way you wash them usually - with brush and toothpaste.

You can apply active charcoal to your teeth once in 7 to 10 days


Activated charcoal has a gentle abrasive property, and after the third brushing with it, you'll notice that your teeth are squeaky clean. This is a sign that they are cleared of all plaque that have accumulated on the surface of the tooth, which you can't remove with ordinary brushing.


Side effects of this treatment are almost unexpected, but there are some conditions in which it is not advisable to apply it. Pregnant and lactating women need to be especially careful - before applying it, it is advisable to consult with a physician. Also, if you are prone to allergies, it is best to consult a dentist. Also be careful in the application of activated charcoal if you have trouble with breathing or swallowing.

Here's a video by Mama Natural about teeth whithening with activated charcoal, which is very nice and informative. :)


Whitening with strawberries

Believe it or not, strawberries are great food that can help you make your teeth white and sparkling, in one word - perfect!

Why strawberries?

Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, which helps to remove plaque that makes your teeth look yellow. Also, strawberries have an enzyme called malic acid, which helps to remove surface stains.

Use for teeth whitening

There are none. But still be careful with the use of baking soda and salt, which may damage the enamel if used too often.

Here are Lisa Estrella Yang and her boyfriend demonstrating teeth whitening with strawberries!


Whitening with lemon and baking soda

Why lemon?

Lemon is a natural bleach, brightens hair and fabric, as well as teeth.

Use for teeth whitening

Put on a plate a tablespoon of baking soda and squeeze lemon over. Mixture will start bubbling. Wait for mixture to settle, then brush your teeth with it.
The mixture must not be rare, so first squeeze just a few drops of lemon, but if you need - add more. You need to get something like toothpaste.


This mixture can damage the enamel, so it should not be used often. Not more than once a week.

Other home remedies for teeth whitening

Apple vinegar and baking soda - Add apple vinegar to the baking soda, enough to make the mixture density of toothpaste. After the first use you will notice the difference in the whiteness of teeth. Another way to use apple vinegar for teeth whitening is to dip the brush in it, and brush your teeth for about 2 minutes and rinse with water. Because apple vinegar is acidic it is best to not use this method more than once a week.

Banana peel - Believe it or not, banana peel will whiten teeth! Peel the banana and rub your teeth for about 2 minutes. Because banana contains no acid in it and no abrasive properties, you can use this method of teeth whitening on a daily basis.

Orange peel - you can rub your teeth with the inside of the peel of orange. The effect will be better if the peel is applied with a small amount of salt. Of course, when you're done with the procedure, brush your teeth as you usually do.


Several tricks for visually whiter teeth


Wear lipstick with cold (blue) undertone - These lipsticks have a blue undertone that will neutralize any yellow tones on your teeth and make them look whiter - red with cold undertone and pink lipsticks. On the other hand, lipsticks with warm undertone (orange and yellowish) will only further emphasize the yellowness of the teeth, so avoid them if you want your teeth look whiter.

Put a Vaseline on your teeth - This sounds terrible, but believe that it is effective. If you put a thin layer of Vaseline on tooth surface, it will prevent stains from coffee and wine.

Wear bronzer - Bronzer on your face is another way to stand out and make your teeth look whiter. You know that, when you have summer tan, your teeth look whiter. It's because the contrast between your teeth and skin. So, wear a bronzer, and your teeth will be visually whiter!


Natural homemade toothpaste

To maintain the whiteness of your teeth, it is necessary to use a good toothpaste. So, here's the recipe for NATURAL toothpaste.

How to make toothpaste

 You will need:
- a quarter cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of fresh mint, chopped
- half a teaspoon of baking soda
- half a teaspoon of corn starch
- half a teaspoon of grape seed oil or sunflower oil

Put mint leaves in the water and let it boil. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, mix baking soda, cornstarch and grape seed oil in a separate bowl until the mixture is united. Drain mint tea (cold) and add the previously prepared mixture. Put the combined mixture back on the heat, let it boil and stir until thickened and smooth. Let it cool down and place it in airtight bowl and you got a completely natural toothpaste!


Mint will give your breath freshness, while baking soda will bleach teeth and disinfect oral cavity. Thanks to its abrasive structure, corn starch is used for mechanical cleaning of food remains, and grape seed oil nourishes the gums, reducing inflammation and infection.


Homemade mouthwash

Mouthwash in combination with toothpaste can be a great ally in the fight against yellow stains on the teeth. Mouthwash will disinfect oral cavity and reach parts of the teeth to which  toothbrush can not reach. It is best to use mouthwash immediately after the meal.


Homemade mouthwash with peppermint

Nourishing mask

Hidrated skin is an important factor in maintaining its softness and flexibility. As skin ages or is subjected to external influences like stress and chemical agents, loses its ability to retain water, becomes dry and wrinkled. Honey is hygroscopic, which means it attracts and retains water. Honey is a natural basis for a variety of moisturizing products including lotions, cleansers, creams, shampoos and conditioners. Because honey is not an irritant, it is suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products.

Preliminary research has also revealed that honey has significant natural antioxidant properties. Antioxidants play a big role in protecting the skin from UV radiation and in helping skin renewal. Prolonged exposure to the sun's UV radiation can cause skin damage, premature aging and even skin cancer. Therefore, always look for honey in ingredients of cosmetics and skin care products.

How to choose the right type of honey

When choosing the type of honey, you can be guided by the sense of taste. But regardless of whether you chose the acacia, forest, sunflower or clover honey, the effect on skin is always the same. To prepare face masks, it is only not recommended to use industrial honey, because it's mainly intended for further processing and therefore its not very useful for skin care. The use of this type of honey is out of the question, unless you are allergic to natural.

How to distinguish fake honey from pure honey

Sometimes honey traders or dealers are adding water and sweetener in honey to create a larger amount and generate more revenue. 
The main difference is that real honey contains no water. You can test if your honey is natural in the following ways:

1. Add a tablespoon of honey in a glass of water. Pure, natural honey will turn into lumps and go down to the bottom, and fake honey will begin to melt as it contains water. 

2. Put on paper a few drops of honey. Pure honey will not break through the paper for a long time, because it does not contain water.
