If I told you my biggest beauty secret was a blue, plastic pot filled with water that I stuck up my nose, you'd probably think I was crazy.

Well, I am. But it works.

Genetics has so lovingly gifted me dark circles, and while coverup works wonders for what I can't change, I've learned that some of it is due to my allergies. You can always tell when I'm suffering from the weather or when my dog's shedding has gotten the best of me, by heavy darkness surrounding my eyes. My mom, who suffers from sinus issues, had introduced me to a Neti Pot to help. My first reaction... You want me to put that up my nose?!?!

If you're unfamiliar, you fill a Neti Pot with a packet of saline solution, add water (distilled is the best), and then shake it up. The spout goes to one nostril and you tilt your head, letting the water go from one nostril through the other, switching sides halfway through. After the first time I reluctantly tried it, I was instantly hooked. It's changed my life for the better and besides the fact that I can actually breathe (yay!) and don't deal with allergy headaches anymore (double yay!) it's significantly helped with my dark circles.

Sticking something up my nose that works on my health and beauty? I can get down with that.

Have you ever tried a Neti Pot?

  1. Swear by the neti pot, part of my everyday coping with allergies routine. Use it almost every day.
