Your Window To The World
Spectacles are your constant companion, considering you wear them all the time. They are your two little windows to the world. Hold on for a second there and think – Are these windows too heavy for you?

Whenever possible, it is advisable to remove your spectacles to reduce the pressure on the areas around the eyes and nose. While they’re off, indulge in these home remedies to make you stop looking like a raccoon.
1. Gel Your Eyes With Aloe Vera
The gel or juice from an aloe vera leaf is very soothing for the skin. Draw out a little gel from a freshly cut leaf and apply it over the darkened areas. Leave it on your skin until it dries and then wash off with cool water.
2. Peel Those Potatoes
And not just for cooking! Once you finish peeling those potatoes, use a grated or sliced potato to make a paste. Apply this paste generously over the dark spots.
