The oil in the cosmetics will only draw more attention to your bags, causing them to look twice as deep and dark.
Drink Some Dandelion Tea

This toxic sludge causes bloating, inflammation, acne, and in this case, panda eyes.
You can buy dandelion tea or make your own. To make your own grab your spade and go dig up few dandelions from your front yard. You want to use the root, so you’ll have to dig deep.
