Use a hand-held juicer to extract the juice of cucumbers and potatoes so that you have equal parts in a bowl. All you need is a couple tablespoons of the combined juices. Soak two cotton balls in the juice, lay flat with your eyes closed, and put the cotton balls on your eyelids. Let them sit for 20 minutes, then wash your eyes with a cool water. Alternatively, cover your eyelids with a slice of raw cucumber or potato and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash your eyes with warm water. Do this daily until the bags are gone.
Massage the affected area with almond oil at bed time. Use your fingers to gently massage under the eyes with the oil. Do this for a couple of minutes each night for two weeks.

Make a paste of one part turmeric powder and three parts pineapple juice. Use a cotton ball to rub the mixture over the dark bags. Let it sit on the eyes for 10 to 15 minutes before gently wiping it off with a damp cloth. Do this daily until the bags are gone.
