There’s no need to head to your favorite beauty counter for this under-eye remedy. We just learned a trick from Well+Good for reducing dark circles with just the use of two fingers—and we’re hooked.

Allergies, fatigue, and even starring at a computer or smart phone for too long can cause under eye circles. So, get more sleep, limit screen-time, visit an allergist and all will be well, right? Easier said than done. For those of us who are already maxing out our shut-eye and can’t get away from our office computers and phones enough to make a notable difference in our under-eye-appearance, there might be a solution. It involves a technique you’ve probably heard of called acupressure that applies pressure to specific points on the brow bone.

Give it a try by applying pressure to the points shown above with your thumb and index finger for about 30 seconds. While holding the pressure points, focus on taking deep, relaxing breaths. You can repeat this process as needed throughout the day.

Did this 30-second trick work for you? Let us know and be sure to share you best beauty tip with us as well.

While this trick might reduce under eye circles, it definitely won’t get rid of them completely. To liven up your look try this 3-in-1 Foundation. It conceals skin imperfections, protects skin against UV rays with SPF 20, and gives a subtle glow thanks to a self-tanning ingredient. If it sounds too good to be true, pick up a bottle at Target and try it for yourself.
