We all know that coffee provides an energy boost and also a myriad of health benefits such as fat burning, lower diabetes, dementia prevention and etc… but the main question for this article is: does coffee remove dark circles? ☕
The reason that this piqued my interest because there are so many articles online that says coffee (specifically grounded ones) works in reducing dark eye circles when applied directly! Since I always have sleeping problems hence my ‘panda’ eyes, I must try it ? Let’s do this together!
What Do You Need?
Just 2 items you need: Pure coffee powder and petroleum jelly.
When picking the coffee powder to use, make sure you’re NOT using:
- 3-in-1 coffee with sugar or creamer. Use only pure coffee.
- Black coffee, the darker the better (mine is as black as my soul).
- Decaffeinated coffee – the reason your dark eye circles are reduced is due to caffeine. So if it’s decaffeinated coffee, what’s the point LOL.
- Coarse coffee ground, as it will be hard to mix in lotions/cream. Pick finely powdered coffee!
Here’s the coffee brand I’m using: Kluang Arabica Coffee Powder (10% discount)
Here’s how to do it
Simply mix the 2 ingredients up! You might want to do it on a towel or mat, as it can be messy!
I apply this mixture where my dark eye circles are everyday for an hour (usually mornings after I wash my face).
Verdict: Dark Eye Circles Slightly Reduced!
As you can see, there’s some slight difference in terms of dark eye circles. After 7 days of using, it did seem to reduce – though not as effective as I thought.
So my verdict is that this coffee does work – to a certain extent. Personally, I’ve had more noticeable results by using products below:
