How to Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?
Do you want to completely eradicate those annoyingly nasty looking dark circles that are under your eyes? If yes, then read on...
No other facial flaw is more visible to everyone else who is looking at your face, than dark circles are. The appearance of dark circles is a sure sign of someone who is unhealthy, whether by stress or by poor living habits. The culprit is generally a combination of things like sun damage, heredity, allergies, aging, and of course - lack of sleep!
But even if you get enough sleep and you are stress free, there is possibility that you may develop dark circles with age. This is the outcome of the layer of fat underneath your eyes that actually thickens with time and gives the illusion of dark circles, when you are in certain lighting.
In addition to that extra fat layer that contributes to dark circles, years of sun damage causes microscopic blood vessels to loose their stability below your eyes, therefore adding to the problem.
- You can use a concealer for a quick fix: Using yellow will neutralize the blues, purples, and husky hues on the skin. This does not remove the problem, but can build your confidence for the day, by alleviating the 'tired look'.
- You can use tea bags and cucumbers: Yes there is definitely something to those commercials where women have cucumbers and tea bags on top of their eyes. Both tea bags and cucumbers reduce inflammation and decrease swelling. Tea bags are especially good to use for dark swollen circles because there is tannin inside of the tea that helps with eliminating the puffiness.
- You should use more anti-oxidants: Antioxidant treatments help to reduce fluid buildup under the eyes, which decreases the dark circles. Therefore, you should go for treatments that involve a lot of vitamin C and GHK copper peptides. Also, vitamin K is great for restoring stability and strength to the blood vessels under the eyes, which reduces their proliferation.
