Banish under eye circles with this exercise

I'm sure most bloggers have this complaint regarding their eyes, "Circle under the eyes". Especially the girls. No point covering them up with concealers lah. Never helps. In fact, i find that it highlights the circle even more especially when under the glare of the fluorescent lamp or harsh sunlight.

Circles under the eyes are caused when the veins fail to get rid of the sludge blood, because the blood is lacking in iron. Our bodies have their poorest circulation under the eyes because the under eyelids seldom move. When we blink, we use only the upper lids. Try looking into the mirror and blink.

Here's an exercise to help increase circulation under the eyes and thereby help fight those circles:

While facing straight ahead, with head level, roll the eyes upward as far as possible without due strain. Then blink your eyes. Repeat three times: then close your eyes and rest them, covering them with the palms of your hands. Rub your palms together to generate some heat before covering your eyes helps improve circulation too.
