Dark circles- every women's nightmare. Dark circles often make us look tired, older, or unhealthy. With both natural and medically prescribed methods, you can easily reduce the appearance of dark circles. Be patient and consistent with these methods, but first let's talk about the possible reasons causing dark circles.
Allergies, contact dermatitis, sun exposure, pigmentation are among the most common reasons for dark circles. Another cause of dark circles is the natural aging process. When you age, you tend to lose fat and collagen, and your skin often thins. This can make the reddish-blue blood vessels under your eyes more prominent.
Have in mind that all people are different and there's a chance not all of the treatments to work for you.
Lack of sleep will not only cause dark circles but also it can make you look paler which might make your dark circles appear darker. Make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours each night. Dermatologists recommend reducing or eliminating sun exposure to your face because of the increased melanin content. The skin in this region can pigment more than the surrounding skin because it’s more sensitive.
What doctors might suggest is using skin-lightning creams, targeting the dark skin with laser therapy, chemical peeling, or blepharoplasty- surgically removed under-eye fat. The procedures can decrease the shadow cast by your eyelid, which can decrease the appearance of dark circles.
Also, using vitamin C, kojic acid, and licorice extract can help decrease skin pigmentation over time, ultimately resulting in the lightening of the dark circles.
