Full Answer

Cucumber juice can cause pain if it comes in contact with the inner eye. Therefore, it is important that the eyes remain shut when covered with cucumbers. Cold compresses can be used in place of cucumbers when there are none on hand. A cool rag or cold spoons placed over the eyes for 10 minutes can be just as effective as cucumber slices in reducing dark circles and puffiness.
