Many women struggle with stubborn under-eye dark circles. There are many different factors that are responsible for the development of dark circles such as hereditary, stress, unhealthy diet and long working hours. Most of the women use all kinds of makeup to hide them. Even red lipstick is considered as a sort of concealer but that is not a long-term solution. However, it is possible to get rid of dark circles very easily or at least make them less visible. Here are some ways:
1. Healthy diet to prevent it
The first step in removing the dark eye circles is to bring the organism into balance. That means enough sleep (at least 8 hours!), avoiding cigarettes, proper diet (no spicy or salty food), reduced alcohol and oily food consumption. Further, try to do your daily exercise in fresh and clean air. Taking enough juices and water is crucial to get rid of dark eye circles. If you drink 1.5 litres of water or freshly cut juices, in a couple of days you will see the changes. Try to minimize the amount of coffee you are drinking every day. If you are not used to drinking a lot of water, try to use this trick: squeeze one orange into 1.5 litres of water and drink it throughout the day. It’s tasty and you will lose weight, as well! Smoothies are also a great way to start a healthier lifestyle.
2. Nighttime eye skincare routine
Next logical step in removing dark eye circles is proper skin care, especially at night time. It may not be large, but the eye area is actually one of the most diligent areas on our face. The skin of the eye area is more sensitive, fragile and more vulnerable to damage caused by external factors. Since the eye area has different needs from the rest of your face, your usual moisturizing care will not satisfy all the needs of protecting this sensitive area. Thus, you need to use skincare products that are specially designed for the delicate eye area.
3. Use products meant for those areasTo diminish unattractive dark under-eye circles and improve the overall appearance of the eyes, you can use creams that are specially used to remove the under-eye dark circles. Such creams are made of a super light formula that perfectly absorbs in the skin and helps against the first signs of skin ageing. Some of market gels are enriched with natural extracts along with moisturizing ingredients. It helps to reduce puffiness and minimize fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
When looking for an eye area cream, use that one which targets some of the most common problems of this area. Choose gel texture creams or creams that get easily absorbed into the skin. Also, do not apply too much. The combination of effective eye cream – ideally enriched with active ingredients – and regular facial massages are a great way to prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles.
4. Homemade remedies
There are numerous cosmetic treatments against wrinkles and dark eye circles – from botox, massage, injection of collagen, hyaluronic acid, mesotherapy to various creams with active ingredients that are supposed to erase years from your face. All of these can be very expensive. Instead of emptying your bank account for eye treatment you can try some homemade natural masks that can prevent and reduce the visibility of lines.
