Dark circles under the eye area are a common problem many women encounter.
And although there are many skincare products and concealing makeup items that we can use we would like to outline some of the reasons why you could be suffering from dark circles before we get to the products we recommend.
So let’s start with some of the issues.
1. A medical concern.
An allergic reaction or kidney infection including allergies can cause dark circles.
2. Your monthly cycle and family genes.
If puffiness appears several days before that time of the month it may be worth trying a green tea and eliminating salty foods and carbohydrates as this could drastically reduce hormonal-induced dark circles and puffiness under your eyes, which are caused by water retention. Unfortunately another option as to why dark circles appear could be a hereditary condition that runs in the family and this is where a handy concealer works really well.
3. Nasal congestion and Lack of sleep.
Both issues can dilate and darken the veins that run from your eyes to your nose, causing the blackish colour.
Equally lack of sleep can make your skin appear paler, which allows blood vessels to be more visible through the skin so you must aim for at least 7-8 hours. Also if you are not removing your makeup before going to sleep then you are allowing your pores to get clogged which can lead to deeper circles and more puffiness.
Also causing the blood vessels under the eyes to become dilated and swollen thus causing dark circles is dehydration, so enough water, at least eight glasses should be consumed.
5. Sun exposure and screen light.
We all know how harsh the sun can be for our skin, especially for the sensitive skin below our eyes.
So a minimum of SPF 30 needs to worn particularly in the sensitive skin areas, also a good pair of protective sunglasses will help.
Artificial light from your computer, tablet or phone can also cause harm, so the trick is to remember to place the screen so that it is slightly below your eye level and at least 20 inches from your face to reduce glare, also it is wise to give your eyes a break every now and then.
