I used to have really dark under-eye circles but my veggie trick got rid of them quickly – I was so surprised it worked

ARE you fed up with dark circles under your eyes and want a cheap hack to solve it?

It turns out you may just need to use a potato to banish bags – yes you heard right.

A skincare expert shared how she uses raw potatoes on her skin

Forget expensive creams and serums, a number of beauty lovers are swearing by wiping potatoes under your eyes so they look brighter.

In the clips, people can be seen slicing the spuds and then patting or rubbing it across their cheeks.

One person praising the trick was @skyesfskin, who claims to be a licensed skin consultant.

She demonstrated how to do it, and said: “A friend told me to use raw potato to treat my under eye circles.

“I tried it a few times and OMG. My dark circles started to fade away.” 

The skin expert claimed this was due to the vegetables having rich compounds such as Azelaic acid which “lighten dark spots.”

They can also help to hydrate skin and tackle hyper pigmentation.

She explained that the best way to achieve the hack is to wipe the raw potato gently over your make-up-free face, and leave it on for 25 minutes.

After that, you should wash with warm water and then add moisturiser.

The skin professional said it gave a whole new meaning to “natural skincare.”


Dr Stephen Humble, who is the Medical Director of Hedox Clinic Harley Street, also praised potatoes for skincare.

He told Tyla: “With a raw potato it’s high in vitamin C, it’s got azelaic acid and it’s got niacinamide in it as well – and this can reduce pigmentation.

“The negative is you’ve got dirty, raw potato; it’s messy, it doesn’t smell that nice, you’re wiping it on your face and it can be quite a hassle.”

The importance of sun cream in your skincare routine

Dermatologist and skincare enthusiast Andrea Suarez – known as Dr Dray – revealed why you should wear suncream.

The one thing you can do that will make the biggest difference – and this matters for all ages – is protecting your skin from the sun, Andrea stressed.

“The vast majority of external aging is due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation,” she continued, not because you’re “not using some jazzy serum or layering 90 different things on your face everyday”.

“If you’re not doing in your 20s, get on that now.”

But she said the use of sun cream alone doesn’t go far enough. Andrea urged that you also wear sun-protective clothing like broad-brimmed hats and long sleeves, on top of not staying out too long in the sun.

Doing this over your lifetime – and all year, not just during the summer or on sunny days – “will reduce the visible signs of photoageing”, Andrea said.

Those are wrinkles, muddled pigmentation and sagging skin.

However, he added: “I would of course choose an eye cream every time over a potato! The eye creams available on the market have all gone through rigorous testing and formulating to directly target under eye area and pigmentation.”

Dr Humble also advised that you should steer clear if you have acne-prone skin, and you should be careful when rubbing “anything under the eyes.”

So, would you give it a go?
