About Those Dark Circles Under Your Eyes...

June 19, 2016 | 0 comments

If you’re getting enough sleep and still have dark circles under your eyes, we know of some possible causes as well as some solutions.

In addition to fatigue, the most common causes of dark under-eye circles are:



  Rubbing or scratching your eyes


  Hyperpigmentation—brown circles—particularly in people of color

However, your circles might only be shadows cast by puffy eyelids. If so, try sleeping with an extra pillow so fluids don’t pool in your lower eyelids over night. A cold compress can help, too. As can a cool slice of cucumber. 

As we age, skin becomes thinner and hollows form due to the loss of subcutaneous fat. A concealer can whiten and brighten both shadows and hollows. Professionally administered injectables can smooth hollows.

Topical creams with stimulating ingredients like caffeine increase circulation by constricting blood vessels. Hyaluronic acid can hydrate and plump up things up. And creams containing retinoic acid can thicken the outer layer of skin.

If those blue-ish circles are caused by sun exposure and extra melanin pigmenting the skin under your eyes, laser therapy and chemical peels can work whitening magic.

So if you’re bothered by dark circles, don’t fret. Try some solutions and brighten up your eyes in no time.
