Eye Bag Remedy: Nuts About Pistachios

Eye Bag Remedy: Nuts About Pistachios

Delving into this stunning beauty book takes you deep into a heartwarming tale of royal India, and it shares the ancient recipes, secrets, and rituals of Indian beauty and health. Recounted as an evocative personal story, there are perfect remedies here for every beauty need, including this one for how to remove dark circles under the eyes.

The pistachio is the perfect nut to remove dark circles under the eyes. The Indian women who are the sources of the lore of this lovely book grind a few pistachio nuts with a teaspoon of milk and gently apply this to the delicate area around the eyes. Then they wash it off after half an hour. Like so many natural remedies, this one doesn’t work overnight. It takes time and patience. That is why consistency and routine is so important. It is important to impart not only the remedy but also the understanding of why and how it works, so you will not be tempted to abandon it in haste.

Editor’s Note: Use a mortar and pestle to grind the pistachios to a paste.
