Dark Under Eye Circles

28th Jan 2014


Dark under eye circles and bags are one of the most common skin care complaints among men and women. As we age tissue and fat loss, sleep deprivation, stress and water retention begin to take a toll on the periorbital area, or under eye zone. The result is droopy eyelids, inflammation and tenderness that leave this sensitive skin with a thin crêpe like consistency, and causes the upper lids to appear puffy and swollen.

Using a high quality serum or eye cream in combination with natural home remedies to treat dark circles can be very effective.

1. Revatilaze

To revitalize firmness and elasticity try Kinerase C8 Peptide Deep Wrinkle Treatment in the morning under your eye cream and moisturizer to help reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles. The peptides and kinetin in this product penetrate deep into the skin - smoothing out unwanted wrinkles and plumping up the surface.

2. Cool Down

Placing cold compresses on the eyes for at least 15-20 minutes a day helps ease swelling and reduce puffiness. Try items like a frozen bag of food, cool cucumber slices or a cold wet rag.

3. Retinol

Skin Dimensions, SB Retinol Eye Cream is created especially for those who are struggling with dark circles and fine lines. Apply every evening, and watch as the retinol plumps and restores your skin to its more youthful appearance. Work your product from the outside bowline working your way inward for the biggest pay off.

4. Hydrate

Drinking plenty of water helps flush out the body’s toxins and gives the skin a firmed moisturized glow.

5. Lifting Cream

Guinot Longue Vie Yeux / Eye Lifting Cream is great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This specially formulated intensely moisturizing cream lifts, smoothes and is packed with 56 active cellular ingredients.

6. Sleep

Bags are at their worst in the a.m. and more pronounced after a night of tossing and turning. Try to eliminate stress and wind down before bed so you can get a peaceful eight hours of rest.
