Those hard-to-disguise dark circles have been lingering for weeks. Even with adequate sleep and normal stress levels, it can be difficult to remedy those annoying dark circles that form underneath our eyes.
Even if we treat our bodies right, dark circles can form under our eyes due to genetics, age, and seasonal allergies. Slowed circulation and blood pools can be a part of genetics that will leave dark circles underneath the eyes no matter how much sleep you get or eye cream you apply.
The first step to preventing dark circles from appearing under your eyes is to wear sunscreen on your face. None of the following treatments will help without sunscreen.
If you think that the culprit of your dark circles is poor circulation, put an extra pillow behind your head to help alleviate blood from pooling up under your eyes. Once you wake up, apply a cold ice pack on your eyes to firm blood vessels and reduce inflammation.
Another great way to ditch those dark under-eye circles is to switch up your dietary intake. Foods that contain a lot of omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and nuts can help to improve circulation. Other sweets like flavonol-rich chocolate are also ideal for reducing under-eye darkness.
Eye creams are just about the best thing you can put on your face to help with dark circles after sunscreen of course. The type of eye cream you buy will help alleviate certain problems and enhance current strongpoints in your skin. An eye cream with Vitamin C helps with skin and cell production and acts as a skin tone brightener. Another great eye cream contains caffeine, which helps to constrict blood vessels under the skin.
Trust us, to achieve clear skin, especially underneath the eyes, is no easy task. By applying these remedies to everyday life, you will see a difference in the appearance of dark circles under your eyes. We hope you enjoyed these helpful beauty tips.
