Dark circles under the lower eyelids are pretty common in both men and women. Sometimes, they are accompanied by the appearance of eye bags. In most cases, dark circles are not a sign of serious medical condition. However, they can make you look much older than you actually are.
How to get rid of Dark Circles under the eyes?
In most cases, you can get rid of dark circles by eliminating the source of the problem. Even when ageing and heredity are the main factors, there are few things that help reduce the appearance of dark circles such as:
1. Avoid excess sun
UV rays can age your skin faster than it should. They can cause significant damage to the skin structure. As a result, your skin becomes thinner and dark circles look more noticeable. During the day, wear sunglasses and use a sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage.
2. Use Caffeine-based eye cream
Caffeine has been proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of dark circles and puffy eyes. A clinical study revealed that Caffeine has anti-inflammatory and vasoconstriction properties that help stimulate the blood circulation and increase the blood flow around the eyes. As a result, the skin around the eyes looks refreshed and renewed.
If you are affected by dark circles or puffy eyes, use a gentle eye cream that has been formulated with caffeine to improve the skin condition. Bio-Collagen Eye and Lip Cream is specially formulated with Resveratrol, Niacinamide, N-Acetyl Glucosamine, Rosehip oil and Caffeine as its key ingredients. Caffeine and Niacinamide boost circulation, brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of the dark circles and puffy eyes. Resveratrol, N-Acetyl Glucosamine and Rosehip oil reduce the signs of ageing. Apply this cream to the skin around the eyes every morning and at night or more frequent if necessary.
3. Be gentle with your skin
The skin around the eyes is the most fragile and thinnest skin on your entire body. It is particularly prone to damages. Be gentle when you clean it, also when you apply an eye cream or makeup.
If you have mature skin or suffer from premature signs of ageing, protect your skin from free radicals, oxidative stress and pollution; the major extrinsic ageing factors. Gently apply Bio-Collagen Serum all over the face and neck including the skin around the eyes, every morning and evening. Formulated with Resveratrol, Ferulic Acid and Coenzyme Q10; this extra lifting and firming serum helps rejuvenate the skin and reduce the signs of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.
