Some tips and recomended products to help reduce dark circles and give your eye area a lift.
A condition where the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin to causes irritation, inflammation and sore bumps.
Black or dark circles under or around the eyes can be caused by many different factors. They can, for most people, be lessened by a good change in regime and addition of a good quality skincare eye cream.
The most common cause of dark circles is genetic makeup. Like varicose veins, dark circles are usually an inherited trait that are due to a very thin or transparent skin around the eye area,. This makes the veins appear more prominent to the surface of the area and when blood passes through them it produces the telltale bluish tint. This cannot be helped but can be disguised by the application of light reflecting cosmetics.
Another cause of dark circles is exposure to the sun. This factor often explains why dark circles are apparent in darker skinned people as well as their lighter skinned contemporaries. This is because in order to obtain a tan the skin pigment must come to the surface and deepen in colour and the same process is evident in the emergence of dark circles with sunbathing or sun exposure. Therefore it is important to use a protective eye cream such as Murad Environmental Shield Eye Cream SPF 15 or a skin brightening eye cream, for example Skin Doctors Circle Clear.
Allergies, asthma and eczema can also increase the severity or occurrence of dark circles. This is because any rubbing or scratching around the eye area will increase the blood flow around the area and over time reduce the strength of the skin around the eye. In order to counteract this it is important to seek medical help and also use a sensitive formula, moisturising eye cream that is also non comedogenic.
Lastly, to help keep dark circles at bay, or at least lessen their prominence, there are some lifestyle options that you can take. Lack of nutrients in the diet or an unbalanced diet can contribute to the discolouration of the under eye area and a simple increase in antioxidant rich fruit and vegetables and an greater intake of water can make a difference. Fatigue is another lifestyle choice that can increase the appearance as lack of sleep can cause the skin to lessen in colour and look pale, making the blood underneath appear darker and bluer than normal, a good eight hours sleep should help boost your circulation and colour!
