I never thought that I would become an expert at removing dark circles under the eyes.
But now that I am, I want to share everything with you in this comprehensive article.
I used to hate mornings.
Not because I was a night owl, hungover, or tired. No, my mornings were plagued by something far worse.
Well, to be fair, I didn’t hate mornings until I had to look at myself in the mirror.
Staring back at me was a man with seriously dark circles under his eyes.
How did this happen?
One day, I was really down in the dumps about my under-eye bags.
I even heard a kid ask her mom why I looked like a raccoon — while I was on a date.
When I shared this experience with my friend, he couldn’t stop laughing.
I would have given him the evil eye, but I thought that might make him laugh at my misery even more.
Fortunately, he had useful information about getting rid of bags under the eyes.
If you are reading this article, chances are that you relate to my story.
I knew I was not the only one out there with dark circles under my eyes.
I took all the information I received from my friend and started looking into home remedies that could permanently remove dark circles.
I also wanted to understand what causes these dark circles, so I would know how to prevent them from ever occurring.
In addition, I wanted to know if there were any long-term effects from having these circles.
The information I am about to share with you is invaluable.
These remedies both cure dark circles and provide nourishing hydration.
But before getting into the remedies, it’s important to know the causes.
Most likely, they are due to one of these common issues:
- Lack of sleep
- too much sleep
- Nasal allergies
- Consistent scratching
- Underlying skin issues, such as eczema
- Makeup products that irritate your skin
- Sun exposure without sunscreen or sunglasses
However, the other causes can be resolved by making a few adjustments in your life.
Poor and excessive sleep can be caused by stress, poor sleep practices, or potential medical issues (such as depression, pain, sleep apnea, and restless leg syndrome).
Whatever the reason, you should try to go to bed at the same time each night, and wake up at the same time each morning.
This schedule will help you get your sleep cycle back into rhythm.
Also, to lift your mood and supply you with vitamin D, get plenty of sunshine during the day.
Medical researchers have discovered that vitamin D plays a large role in our overall health.
Most people do not get enough sunshine, which is a natural way to produce vitamin D.
When catching rays, be sure to wear sunscreen and sunglasses.
Getting repetitive sun exposure without protection has been linked to skin cancer.
It can also dry out your skin and cause the elasticity to lessen, which could cause wrinkles and dark circles.
Fatigue is more than just feeling tired.
It’s closer to how you’d feel without sleeping for two days.
If you are feeling fatigued, remember to develop a regular sleep schedule, and try to get more sleep.
If you are experiencing persistent fatigue that is not relieved by these efforts, it is advised that you see a medical professional.
Allergies and skin issues may also be resolved through natural remedies, over-the-counter medications, and prescriptions.
When severe enough, allergies and stress can also cause fatigue and skin conditions to worsen.
While home remedies can cure bags under your eyes, understanding the causes may help you make adjustments in your lifestyle, or change the makeup products you use.
Most home remedies are inexpensive and easy to use, which is why they are so popular.
The products are natural, so they don’t have harsh chemicals, as under-eye creams do.
Traditional medicine often treats the symptoms, but can also come with a host of negative side effects.
But home remedies could cause some side effects if you have an allergy to the substances being used.
That’s why having several home remedies to choose from, which can help you find the solution that’s best for you.
Home remedies have been healing people for centuries.
The writings of well-known historical figures, such as Socrates, wrote about a host of ailments and remedies.
Eastern medicine has a long, well-established history of turning to natural remedies to heal the body.
The effectiveness of these natural healing methods has been established in countless pieces of literature.
Today, a larger number of people are seeking natural treatments for relief — of both symptoms and underlying causes.
The ancient peoples discovered treatments and causes through trial and error.
Then a stunning breakthrough occurred through an understanding of human anatomy.
Food from plants can improve the performance of certain organs.
In addition, there are many examples of foods in nature that resemble the organ they can improve.
For instance, walnuts are “brain food” because they’re high in DHA. Coincidentally, walnuts also look like a brain, and they have two lobes.
Carrots are good for your vision, and when they are sliced, they look like eyes.
The Middle Ages were a particularly important era regarding plant medicine (which were known as botanicals then).
Plants were viewed in terms of the symptoms or ailments that they remedied.
Botanists drew elaborate pictures, which showed the structure, identifying factors, and a medicinal portion of the plant.
Some herbalists also included the health problems that they treated, as well as instructions on preparation and usage.
What are Bags under the Eyes?
Now you know some causes of dark circles, as well as a brief history of botanicals.
So it’s time to find out what bags under the eyes are.
Bags under the eyes result from weakening skin tissue.
The body reacts to the weakening of the tissue under the eyes by moving fat into the weakened area, in order to protect it.
That’s why you may see puffiness under the eyes.
The degree of swelling depends on whether or not the eyelids are involved.
When it affects both areas at the same time, the area may appear to be more swollen than it is.
Fortunately, bags under the eyes are rarely related to a serious medical condition.
But aesthetically, bags under the eyes are unsightly. The good news?
Bags and dark circles respond favorably to home remedies.
How to Prevent
Remember, the best way to prevent bags under the eyes is to find out why you have them to begin with.
Once you have that information, you can start to make the right lifestyle changes to prevent further affliction.
If you have not been getting enough sleep, is it because you need to frequently use the bathroom?
If so, you can try to drink beverages before going to sleep.
But you should speak with your doctor if any changes you make fail to resolve because you made lifestyle adjustments.
If the bags result from your age or genetic background, there is nothing that you can do to prevent them.
However, you can take steps to minimize them. Those steps can include natural home remedies.
The main problem that bags can lead to is an underlying medical issue that is not being properly treated.
This problem can arise from medical conditions, which may be as simple as getting an anti-itch cream (for skin conditions) or as serious as death (if there is an underlying kidney issue).
The other problem is that you do not administer the home remedy properly.
Any time you topically apply anything near the eye, you run the risk of getting it into your eyes or ingesting it when it should not be eaten.
As long as you see your doctor as needed and follow their directions, you should not have any problems.
When to See a Doctor
You should see a doctor if:
- You experience pain or bleeding.
- Your eyes are swollen shut.
- You have an underlying condition
- You experience no relief from home remedies.
You should also see a doctor if you have other medical conditions or allergies.
And you should consult your doctor before starting home treatments.
Here’s the reason: some plant properties are counter-indicated for certain medical conditions.
Some properties may also contain elements, which could cause an allergic reaction.
28 Remedies for Puffy Eyes
Sweet Almond Oil
Almonds are rich in the antioxidant vitamin E (3).
It helps the body rid itself of free radicals in the skin, which are linked to the effects of aging (including dark circles under the eye, wrinkles, and dry skin).
Almond oil also adds the benefit of smooth, hydrated skin.
Apply a small amount of almond oil under the eyes.
Slowly massage it into the skin, and leave it on overnight.
Any excess oil that is not absorbed overnight may be washed off when you start your day.
Repeat this process until the bags are gone.
You may discover that you want to use almond oil on other parts of your skin every day because it makes your skin feel fantastic.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera has long been known to hydrate the skin, and it offers relief from dry skin, cuts, bruises, and sunburns.
Therefore, Aloe Vera is a wonderful choice for dark circles and bags.
The aloe is a succulent plant, and it is ideal for reducing melanin.
An overproduction of melanin appears under the eyes because the skin is thinner there (5).
Every morning and night, spread a thin layer of gel underneath your eyes, and massage it into the skin.
After 10 minutes, remove the remaining gel with a damp cotton ball.
Wipe the gel off with a washcloth, because it is slightly abrasive.
The skin under the eyes is delicate, which is why you should remove it with a cotton ball or similar item.
Like almond oil, argan oil has an abundance of vitamin E.
In other words, it hydrates the skin and reduces wrinkles (6).
If you prefer to try something with a lighter feeling, you may prefer argan oil over almond oil.
Your dark circles should fade away, and you will have fresh-looking skin.
Before going to bed, use a little argan oil under the eyes.
Argan oil is readily absorbed by the skin, so leave it on overnight.
You do not want to wash it off in the morning, even though all of it should have been absorbed overnight.
If you find that it is not fully absorbed, try using less next time.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Vinegar is acidic, and you may wonder why you would want to use something acidic under the eye.
Be sure to get raw apple cider vinegar, because it is the only vinegar that becomes alkaline when applied topically or orally.
There are tons of good nutrients, enzymes, and minerals to eradicate dark circles and wrinkles within days (7).
It is also a great dietary supplement, because of the alkaline base and nutrients it contains.
Twice a day, apply a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with a Q-tip or similar applicator.
Do not wash it off, and allow it to completely dry.
If you accidentally get the apple cider vinegar in your eyes, rinse them with cool water.
It removes bags and dark circles by hydrating the skin beneath your eyes.
The lipids help by filling in bags and wrinkles.
Before you know it, your eyes will shine with a radiant glow.
Before going to bed, take virgin coconut, and pat it onto your skin below the eye.
Going in a clockwise direction, massage the oil into the skin.
After that, massage the oil in, using a counter-clockwise motion.
You will want to massage the oil about 3-4 times. Leave it on overnight.
You should quickly start seeing results, and your skin will feel it immediately.
Castor oil is quite beneficial to the skin because it has high levels of vitamin E.
However, vitamin E is only one of several minerals, vitamins, and proteins that make castor oil an ideal choice for removing bags (9).
Castor oil is rich in omegas 6 and 9, which are fatty acids that help repair damage.
Castor oil also contains copious levels of ricinoleic acid, which is also excellent for the skin.
Every night, apply castor oil to your under-eye area by massaging it into the skin.
Leave the castor oil on overnight.
When you wake up in the morning, the oil should have completely absorbed into your skin.
Most of us have seen people at a spa with cucumbers on their eyes.
And there is a good reason: cucumbers soothe and refresh your eyes, and they also eliminate dark circles!
They are rich in antioxidants, so they will remove your dark circles and bags while erasing the fine lines around and under the eyes.
Slice a cucumber into pieces, which are half-an-inch or one-inch thick.
Place the slices in the refrigerator, and allow them to chill for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, place a slice over each bag, and wait 10 minutes before removing them.
Rinse under the eyes with cool water. For one week, repeat this process twice a day.
Tomatoes are rich in antioxidants, so they will help repair the skin and protect it from further damage.
One of the antioxidants in tomatoes is lycopene (11).
In addition to repairing and protecting the skin, lycopene can reduce any associated swelling or puffy eyes, because it is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Mix 1 tsp of tomato juice with 1 tsp of lemon juice.
Massage the mixture under the eyes, in order to remove the dark circles.
Leave the mixture on your eyes for 10 minutes. When the 10 minutes has passed, rinse with cool water.
Repeat this process twice a day for two or three weeks.
If your under-eye area is sensitive to the acids in lemon and tomato juices, then add 1 tsp of rosewater to the mixture.
When it comes to benefits, green tea is a powerhouse.
When it comes to dark circles, this green tea has astringent properties, due to the tannins constricting blood vessels and capillaries.
The reason the tannins are helpful is that the appearance of dark circles happens when the blood vessels become dilated (12).
Therefore, a gentle astringent is perfect for the sensitive area under the eyes.
Once a day, you will want to apply this remedy.
To prepare the teabags for use, just place them in water, and refrigerate until chilled.
Once the teabags are chilled, cover both eyes with the teabags for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
Afterward, your eyes will feel refreshed.
Grapeseed oil is a light oil that tightens the skin, reduces age spots, and balances oily and dry skin.
Grapeseed oil is a great choice for removing dark circles and bags because it has properties of emollients and astringents.
The astringents constrict blood vessels, and the emollients and vitamin E hydrates and refresh the skin under the eyes (13).
Grapeseed oil also works to protect the skin from sun damage and can heal many skin problems.
Twice a day, massage 2-3 drops of grapeseed oil under the eye.
Leave it on, and allow the oil to be absorbed into the skin.
Repeat this process until you see a noticeable improvement.
Rosewater (Gulab Jal)
Rosewater is quite beneficial to the skin.
It soothes the area under the eyes and lightens dark circles.
It hydrates the skin and contains antioxidants. Anti-inflammatories reduce the appearance of swelling.
It also contains mild astringents, vitamins A and C, and flavonoids that refresh the skin and reduce dark circles.
In addition, Rosewater exfoliates dead skin cells, which opens up the pores and reduces dark circles (14).
For maximum benefit, apply rosewater daily for four weeks.
Saturate a cotton ball with rosewater, and apply it under each eye. Leave them there for 15 minutes.
Once completed, rinse with cool water.
Honey will leave your skin feeling soft and silky.
It has antioxidants and moisturizers to lighten dark circles and hydrating nourishment (15).
Honey also contains antibacterial properties that draw out toxins.
Not only is it a good choice for dark circles but it also can help any skin problems and minor wounds heal.
Use a thin layer of honey under your eyes.
Leave the honey on for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.
Repeat this process 3-4 times daily.
Once your dark circles and bags are no longer present, you can stop using the honey if you wish.
Baking soda can also be used to exfoliate the skin, which helps create smooth, soft skin.
By using baking soda, you will lighten the circles, and your skin will tighten, which reduces fine lines around the eyes.
Every day, mix one cup of warm water with one teaspoon of baking powder and create a runny paste.
Place a cotton ball into the mixture, before placing it under an eye.
Do not rub the baking soda in, due to its abrasiveness.
Leave the cotton balls or baking soda on for 15 minutes, then rinse them with cool water.
Be careful not to rub it off.
Please use caution when selecting this method, and do not use it for more than one week.
Jojoba oil contains:
- Vitamin B5, which eliminates dark circles.
- Vitamin E, which has a moisturizing effect.
- Fatty acids, which hydrate the skin and leave it soft and smooth.
- Antibacterial qualities.
Jojoba oil is also an excellent face wash because it does not clog pores.
Every night before bed, place a few drops under each eye. Massage the oil into the skin, and leave it on until morning.
All of the jojoba oil should absorb into the skin overnight.
If it does not, rub the excess in, or gently rinse it off.
Kumkumadi Tailam Oil
Kumkumadi Tailam oil is an Ayurvedic oil, which contains several herbs that are known to help skin.
Primarily, they are used to lighten the skin tone, which makes it a perfect choice for dark circles.
This oil also has properties that protect your skin from sun damage and blemishes, which include dark circles.
It balances pigmentation and leaves a radiant glow and silky, smooth skin (18).
It may also be used as a facial cleanser and moisturizer.
Before using it under your eyes, do a skin test, in order to ensure that you are not sensitive to any of its ingredients.
Place a few drops of the oil onto your fingertips, and gently massage it into the skin daily.
Within a few weeks, you should have beautiful results.
Kalonji oil is known by many names, such as Nigella oil and black seed oil.
These small black seeds have many benefits and contain many healthy properties.
This little seed packs a real punch since it contains fatty acids, anti-inflammatory qualities, vitamins, amino acids, potassium, iron, sodium, calcium, fiber, proteins, antioxidants, and alkaloids.
Kalonji oil will nourish and hydrate your skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
It also reduces swelling, and it slows the effects of aging.
As for bags and dark circles, it is amazing at eliminating them and leaves you with the beautiful skin under the eyes.
In addition, this oil has a wonderful aroma.
Combine ½ teaspoon of honey with 2-3 drops of kalonji oil.
Apply the mixture under the eyes every day, and leave it on for 15 minutes.
Rinse the mixture off with cool water. Repeat this process until your dark circles have vanished.
Lemon juice is an effective remedy because it has natural bleaching qualities that remove dark circles.
It also contains vitamin C, which lightens and firms the skin, in order to remove fine lines around the eyes.
It has both astringent and moisturizing properties, which constrict the blood vessels under your eyes.
It is recommended that you use a moisturizer afterward because the astringent qualities are stronger than the moisturizers.
The area under the eyes is quite delicate and sensitive, so you do not want them to get dry and itchy.
To apply the lemon juice under your eye, you can either use a Q-tip or cotton ball.
Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, then thoroughly wash it off.
Repeat this process twice daily, until the dark circles have disappeared.
Licorice extract is a natural skin-lightener, so it is a perfect choice for eliminating dark circles.
The extract contains glabridin, which blocks melanin from forming, and helps lighten the area under your eyes (21).
By managing the blood vessels, vitamin K has been associated with tightening and lightning your skin, so they are not dilated or constricted (22).
When you combine licorice extract with vitamin K, it will quickly eliminate ugly, dark circles.
You will want to apply this natural remedy daily until you have the desired results.
Open the vitamin K capsule, and pour the powder into a small mixing bowl.
Add 3-4 drops of the licorice extract, and mix well.
You may need to add a small amount of water, in order to create a good, thick paste.
Apply the paste under your eyes, and leave it on for 10 minutes.
Wash off the remaining paste, and pat dry.
Crushed Mint Leaves
You will need to do a spot test before using this remedy for your dark circles.
Mint leaves increase the blood flow to the skin.
Mint contains menthol, which helps even out the skin tone.
While mint leaves are also an astringent that constrict blood flow, the menthol manages blood circulation.
That way, the vessels open the correct amount.
You may also feel some tingling, but your skin will feel rejuvenated.
Mint leaves also contain vitamin C and flavonoids (23).
These nutrients support collagen production and firm the skin around your eye.
This effect will erase those fine lines and dark circles.
This remedy works best when applied before going to bed. You will need to crush a few mint leaves.
If you have a mortar and pestle, it will be easier to effectively crush them.
If you do not, you can crush the leaves with a meat tenderizer.
Once the leaves are crushed, you will need to place them in a bowl, and mix them with a little water until you have a thick, smooth paste.
Apply this paste under your eyes, and leave it on for 10 minutes.
Use warm water to rinse the paste off.
Do not use cold water, because it will increase the tingling effect created by menthol.
Do a spot test first, as some people have an allergic reaction (24).
Cold milk contains essential vitamins for healthy skin.
Vitamin B12 is responsible for milk having natural lightening properties, which erase the dark circles under your eyes.
Vitamins A and B6 and milk proteins work together, in order to repair the skin and promote the production of new skin cells.
Biotin is a natural moisturizer in milk.
Along with potassium and lactic acids, biotin helps with oil production.
Magnesium slows the aging process, and calcium helps collagen production, which will make your skin firm and erase fine lines around the eyes (25).
Perform this remedy once a day for two weeks.
All you need is a bowl filled with about ¼ cup of milk.
Dip two cotton balls into the milk, cover the areas under the eyes and leave them there for 15 minutes.
Wash them off with a tiny bit of soap, since the sugars in milk may feel sticky to some people.
Olive oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, which help reduce puffiness and protect the skin from further damage.
To remove bags and fine lines under the eyes, olive oil is loaded with fatty acids.
These acids provide rich nourishment and hydration to the areas under your eyes (26).
Before bed, apply several drops of virgin oil.
You can add a pinch of turmeric because this spice has additional anti-inflammatory properties.
However, adding it is optional. Using a clockwise motion, gently massage oil into the area under the eyes.
Leave it on overnight.
If there is any excess oil when you wake up, you can wipe it off and use less oil next time.
Potatoes are great for extracting toxins from the skin.
The enzymes and starches in potatoes bleach dark circles.
There is a surprising amount of vitamin C in potatoes, which nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
If you have a juicer, it will be much easier to prepare this remedy.
If you do not have a juicer, you must grate a raw potato, and squeeze out the liquid.
Use two cotton balls to absorb the potato juice, and place one over each eye.
Before rinsing with warm water, leave the cotton balls on for 10 minutes.
Repeat twice daily for three weeks.
Petroleum jelly reduces dark circles because it forms a barrier between the skin and outside elements.
When you wash your face before applying petroleum jelly, the moisture from the water remains, which adds additional moisture to the bags.
Petroleum jelly is hailed as one of the most moisturizing products on the market.
Place a dab of petroleum jelly onto your palm. Add a few drops of lemon juice, and mix them together.
Smear half of the mix on each eye, and leave it on for an hour.
After that hour, you can wipe it off with tissue. Repeat this process every day.
Avoid this remedy if you are acne-prone.
Petroleum jelly has been known to clog pores, which exacerbates acne.
Rosehip oil contains vitamin E, a natural emollient.
It hydrates the skin, which fills out bags and fine lines.
Vitamin A aids the repair of skin cells, and fatty acids nourish the area under the eyes and add additional hydration (29).
Mix 15 ml of rosehip oil with 10 drops of lavender oil, 5 drops of essential lemon oil, and 1-2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel.
Once the mixture has been made, you can store it in a bottle.
Shops that sell essential oils often have small dropper bottles available for purchase.
Before bed, massage a small amount under the eyes, for 2 minutes per eye.
For best results, continue for 3 weeks.
A separate article would be required to list the beneficial compounds of saffron because there are over 150 of them.
Saffron helps skin become smooth and supple, and it brightens the skin.
There are also several different compounds that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Both properties help reduce bags under the eyes.
Saffron has a wonderful aroma, and it is red or orange in color.
Pour ¼ cup of milk into a bowl.
To release the aroma and beneficial compounds, soak 1 thread of saffron in the milk for 5 minutes.
Dip two cotton balls into the saffron milk, and place one over each eye.
The cotton balls need to remain in place for 15 minutes and can be rinsed off with cold water.
Repeat the process once every day.
Yogurt and Parsley
Yogurt contains probiotics and lactic acid.
The probiotics lighten dark circles, and the lactic acid evens the skin tone.
It also exfoliates and draws out any impurities.
Parsley evens out skin tones, too, and it slows down the development of wrinkles.
It contains vitamin C, folic acid, and beta-carotene, which make it ideal to pair with plain yogurt.
This remedy requires that the eye mask be applied three times a day for one week.
Grind some parsley leaves, and mix it into one tablespoon of plain yogurt.
Apply the mask mixture below each eye, and wait for 10 minutes.
Then rinse off the mask with cold water.
Turmeric is a powerhouse of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
Both properties lighten dark circles.
Turmeric is often used in face creams, because it rejuvenates your skin, and leaves a soft glow.
Almond oil provides the base for mixing the turmeric and hydrates the skin (35).
Vitamin E also helps reduce the fine lines and wrinkles associated with the aging process.
Almonds are rich in the antioxidant vitamin E. Vitamin E helps the body rid itself of free radicals.
Free radicals in the skin are linked to the effects of aging, which include dark circles under the eye, wrinkles, and dry skin.
Almond oil also adds the benefit of smooth, hydrated skin.
Mix ¼ teaspoon of turmeric with one teaspoon of sweet almond oil until it’s well-blended.
Massage under the eyes for one minute.
Leave this blend on for 20 minutes, before wiping or washing it off.
Repeat this process three times a day for one week.
Orange juice has high levels of vitamins A and C.
Both vitamins are associated with removing dark circles.
They also even the skin tone and reduce puffiness by decreasing the buildup of fluids.
Glycerin provides some hydration and rejuvenates your skin.
It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
You will have an inner glow, and the area under your eyes will feel soft and smooth.
Apply this remedy once a day for 3 weeks.
Mix a few drops of glycerin with a tablespoon of orange juice.
Use a cotton ball to apply it to the area under your eyes. Leave it on for 10 minutes, before gently washing it off.
Do’s and Don’ts
Remember, it is always a good idea to speak with your doctor if these remedies do not help.
Exercise is a great way to keep dark circles at bay.
It helps increase blood circulation and releases endorphins, which make you feel calm and happy.
Meditation will also help you keep stress away.
Aside from stress being unhealthy, it can cause the effects of premature aging.
Because of the fatty acids, it contains, it will help blood flow, so it won’t settle in the area under your eyes.
To reveal a bright complexion and remove dead skin cells, cleanse your face daily.
Do not use as much salt or alcohol.
They dehydrate the skin and can cause puffiness around your eyes.
They also lead to bags looking worse, because the skin is not hydrated.
So do not consume more than two alcoholic drinks over a 24 hour period. There are many home remedies to treat bags under the eyes.
Select a couple from the list, and try them out until you find one that you like.
These remedies are perfect for dark circles, and many are beneficial for the whole face.
The ingredients used for the remedies are quite important.
If the remedy states that raw or unfiltered products are required, you should use them, because processing often removes — or greatly degrades — the beneficial properties that remove bags under the eyes.
Also, organic products are always best, but they are not required.
However, organic products may be called on, due to the risk of pesticides.
By adopting some lifestyle changes, such as getting the proper amount of sleep, you will find that bags and dark circles will rarely appear.
The great thing is that the treatments for bags under your eyes also reduce the harmful effects of stress.
So now you have many options for vanquishing your bags, so you can start looking and feeling like the beautiful person you are.
