Are those dark circles around your eyes driving you mad? Dark circles eye cream could be the answer. You certainly aren’t alone with this condition, many people have the same problem of the “panda” eyes look.
It sounds comical but it is very frustrating and it’s not just women who get this, this is quite common in men too.
What Are Dark Circles?
Your under eye circles start out in those tiny blood vessels in the very sensitive skin around the eyes. Those blood vessels are called capillaries. These are so small at times that the red blood cells have to line up in single order to get through.
This causes a puffiness and darkness to the skin area, and because the skin under and around the eye is so delicate, these leaky capillaries can cause the dark shadows to appear.
These circles can also appear due to neglect. Smoking, stress and ageing & lack of sleep can all cause dark circles, adjustments to your lifestyle may be necessary as well as adding eye cream.
What Dark Circles Eye Cream Is Best?
Firstly, you need a light cream that has been developed especially for the eyes only. Heavy face creams are not suitable, and all creams around the eyes should always be removed during the night.
An under eye cream that contains almond is not only good for the delicate skin under the eye, but can also lighten the skin tone if used regularly over time.
Dark circles can be caused by a lack of Vitamin K. Creams that contain vitamin K and Retinol can reduce puffiness and discolouration, long term use of a good light cream continuing these ingredients could have a significant effect on the area around the eyes and by adding the almond based under eye cream as well could be enough to get get the results you want in the long term.
Is There An Alternative To Dark Circles Eye Cream?
Yes, there are many other ways to remove these circles under eyes and improve the area around the eyes without expensive creams.
1) Slice cucumbers into thick slices, place a slice over each eye for a refreshing cool “pick me up”. Keep your eyes closed. This is an ideal short term blast to reduce puffiness.
2) Apply cool green tea bags to the eyes. Apply daily. The green tea can help reduce swelling and discolouration, it contains a high concentration of antioxidants. Keep your eyes closed, leave the tea bags on your eyes for 10-15 minutes.
