A BEAUTY pro has taken to TikTok to share her bargain remedy for dark undereye bags – and people can’t believe they didn’t think of it before.
Michelle, known online as @itsmichelleadams, regularly shares life updates and beauty tips with her 297,000 followers.
In a new video, she shares how she’s been using Arnica cream for a week to see if it made any difference to the dark circles under her eyes – and was thrilled with the results.
“I think I’ve cracked the code for the best under-eye cream ever.
“So I normally don’t use under-eye cream because it’s just like any other moisturiser, in my opinion.
“But one day I was like, I wonder what would target darkness and puffiness because my eyes get super puffy, especially in the morning.
“And I was like, Arnica. Arnica literally gets rid of bruises, which is dark and it also gets rid of puffiness, so I was like, ‘do you know what, let’s just try this’.
“Not the Arnica tablets, but the Arnica cream. They have a cream and a gel, I have the cream.
“And I’ve been using it for a week now, and I don’t know if I’m just hysterical and I’m imagining this, but I really do think that it made a difference.
“So, try this bad boy. I just use it under my eyes and on my lid, and it has not made me worse.
“So I don’t know if I just cracked the code to flawless under eyes.”
During the one-minute video, Michelle’s under-eye appears to be smooth and even in colour.
Beauty fans can stock up on the bruise cream at various retailers, including The Range, which prices starting at just £1.
Fans loved Michelle’s hack, with the video gaining more than 25,300 likes and 286,000 views.
In the comments, the beauty fan’s followers praised her idea, with one writing: “I’ve been doing this for years. Way better then eye cream.”
Another said: “As a licensed Esthetician, this makes sense. Dark circles are from not enough blood flow in that area, stagnant blood so it may be helping with the [blood flow].”
A third added: “I’ve been influenced…. again.”
Someone else shared their own hack, commenting: “I’m Mexican and brew arnica tea and use it as a facial mist! Cool it and oh man !!!”
