Combat Dark Circles with Our Best Selling Eye Creams

25th January, 2016 by Andrea

The skin under the eyes, is the thinnest in the body and blood vessels in this area tend to appear more prominent.
However, there are a number of reasons that cause dark circles under the eyes or rather make them more pronounced, here are some examples:

– Heredity – Dark under eye circles are part of your genes.

– Lack of sleep – This causes your skin to appear pale, thus the blood vessels under our skin will be more visible and dark.

– Gravity – Trying to sleep on your back to make sure that fluid does not collect in your lower eyelids, which may cause the appearance of shadows.

– Fluid Retention – Smoking, caffeine beverages, high blood pressure or other medical conditions can cause the blood vessels to dilate and the increased blood flow will show through the skin.

– Poor Nutrition – The lack of a balanced diet and especially the lack of iron may contribute to the discolouration of the eye area.

– Sun Exposure – This may cause blood vessels to become more visible and draw more pigmentation to the skin’s surface

– Age – As people get older they tend to lose collagen from the skin, this makes the skin become thinner and more translucent.

– Dehydration – excessive loss of water from the body causes dark circles.

Recommended Treatments

– Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to keep yourself hydrated.

– Sleep for at least 8 hours a night.

– Sleep on your back to avoid fluid retention.

– Don’t smoke, don’t drink a lot of alcoholic and caffeine drinks.

– Consume a balanced diet rich in antioxidants.

– Eat fruit and veg that contains vitamin C to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and iron rich foods.

– Try to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes in sunny weather.

– Using products that contain Haloxyl, N-Hydroxysuccinimide and Chrysin as this will promote the elimination of blood originating pigments from under the eyes. Vitamin K helps with blood coagulation and circulation.
