  6. I love the use of natural, home made remedies but sometimes you just need something a bit stronger. I don’t often have dark circles under my eyes, but due to environment and additional stress, I’ve notice a puffier appearance. I’m also going to try drinking cucumber water to help with better hydration. An excellent idea! Thank you, Lisa. I’ve learned a lot in this article.

    • Sue, I love the home remedy of cucumbers on the eyes. It is so refreshing when you put them on your eyes and nap for 15 minutes. When that doesn’t work, I am thankful for the great products we have available. Lisa

  8. Great article. I can see why I have an issue. The lack of sleep is the likely culprit. I can not see that correcting anytime soon. The foods you listed high in vitamin k. I do consume a lot of those as a regular diet. Is there an additional supplement that you are aware of that adds more?
    I am also interested in trying the lotion but I have very sensitive skin due to Lupus. Do you know if this is suited well for sensitive skin or if an option exists that is?
    Thank you for your help.

    • Hi Christina, Baebody Eye Gel may temporarily cause a burning sensation, stinging, or skin irritation to some individuals or skin-types. With your condition, you may want to run the ingredients list by your doctor before trying. However, many of the 12,000 reviews indicate they had sensitive skin and they experienced no problem. But it is always best to check with your doctor. Lisa
