Here is a
suggestion from Luc:
If you have dark circles
under your eyes, it is time to strengthen and drain your kidneys.
Dark circles, located
near the inner corner of the eyes, correspond to the liver.
In both cases, dandelion
and nettle root herbal infusions would be beneficial. I like these herbs and use
them myself, either occasionally or as a cure for several days.
suggestion, Karine asks Véronique:
"I wonder if herbs have helped to reduce your dark circles and how do
you use them?"
Karine, yes!!!!!! I really saw a big difference in the intensity of my dark
circles. Of course I still have some, but I was born with them. Before, despite
sleeping well and using all kinds of eye products of various costs, I had never
seen any improvement. However, after ten days of drinking concoctions made with
herbs of nettle and dandelion roots once a day, I finally notice a great
improvement for the first time in my life. I continue to drink these herbs 3-4
times/week. I mix together 1 1/2 spoonfuls of nettle and dandelion roots and
let them infuse in boiling water for 15 minutes. Voila! THANKS to Luc for his
wonderful advice. I also apply Le Sérum de Jacynthe around my eyes to which I
add a drop of the dermo-apaisante formula. There is no stinging! And no, it
doesn’t make my skin look blue. What a relief! I hope this helps you too."
