After the pandemic, DIY skincare became all the rage. People searched for skin-friendly products in their kitchens, hoping to utilise their goodness. From bananas to curd and coffee, every product has been tested for efficacy. Now, with Diwali over, you may be left with a lot of goodies, mainly dry fruits. What are you going to do with them, besides eating them? Well, a certain dry fruit can be extremely beneficial for a common skin problem: dark under-eye circles. And the dry fruit is...an almond!

Not only are almonds supremely healthy for the body (they are good for the heart and can prevent unhealthy snacking, among other things), they can take care of this pesky skin problem, too, claims Sumedha, a certified face yoga and yoga coach.

According to the expert, dark circles are mostly the result of lifestyle problems, such as not sleeping well. She states that one must sleep for at least 6 hours every night. Along with that, a simple DIY containing almonds can help.
