Arnica is a homeopathic remedy that apparently stimulates white blood cell activity, and removes the blood and fluids that cause bruising and swelling. I had a facial about five months ago and she applied an Arnica cream under my eyes; I noticed a difference in my undereye circles right away. I've been using the Jurlique Arnica cream (about $25) as well as Arnica Gel made by Boiron for about $5 or $6. The Boiron contains 7% Arnica, not sure about Jurlique. Apparently there is a stronger formula used by Plastic Surgeons for their post-surgery patients. Pat it on your undereye circles, but don't get too close to your eyes.
Arnica is also good for muscle aches, stiffness, falls and minor blows. It is said to reduce pain, swelling and discolouration.
