Puffy eyes. Dark eye circles. We’ve all had them, and they always show up at the worst time, and sometimes can even be chronic. Typically, we know the cause…a sleepless night or three, wonky hormone changes, allergies, nutritional deficiencies and even that second glass of wine you had with dinner. Removing those dark circles is one of the leading skincare search results on the web today! Let us introduce you to Arnica.
What is Arnica
Arnica is a small yellow flowering plant that belongs to a group of herbaceous plants within the sunflower family. It’s sometimes also known as Mountain Tobacco or Wolfsbane and is most often found in Europe and the western US. Its yellow petals have been dried and used for many years on the homeopathic scene, thanks to its natural healing abilities.
How Does Arnica Work?
Arnica gel has a following in sports, for recovering athletes with sprains and bruises, and in the fashion industry to help rid models of last minute puffiness before a big night on the catwalk. And it’s a great remedy to help rid the dark circles around our eyes due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is known to boost the circulation of white blood cells, which minimizes healing time in various areas of the body, and it helps to constrict blood and lymphatic vessels, which decrease the appearance of dark circles. In its gel form, it can be used on everything from insect bites to bruises.
