Dark circles can happen to anyone but what causes them? There are a lot of theories as to why you might suffer from dark circles but dermatologists have narrowed it down to a few main causes.
Here are the top reasons you’re suffering from dark circles and the best ways to combat them for a brighter, younger-looking eye area!
Have you been feeling extra tired lately? While there is a lot going on in your life and in the world, not getting enough sleep can lead to dark circles. Even if you are getting your 8 hours a night, you may not be sleeping well which can also have you waking up to dark, puffy eyes every morning.
If your dark circles are because you’re tired, there are some easy ways to brighten your eye area. Using an eye serum vs. a cream is an easy one. The molecules in an eye serum are much smaller than in creams so they are able to penetrate deeper and provide more brightening to the eye area. Most people notice their dark circles get better within a few weeks of switching over to a serum.
Genetics can play a huge role in how your skin looks and feels. If you are getting enough rest and keeping stress under control, you might just have a genetic disposition for dark undereye circles. If you do have the genetics to blame for your dark circles, don’t fret. Just because mother nature intended for you to have them doesn’t mean there aren’t safe and easy ways to get rid of them.
If your dark circles are genetic, you’re going to need more than a good night’s sleep to get rid of them. Opting for an eye product that contains cosmeceutical ingredients in your best bet. Cosmeceutical ingredients are ones that are medical grade, like NAD+™ and Aldavine™ that we include in our Eye Recovery Serum. They work to plump and brighten your eye area and help to erase dark circles with ease!
Your Skin Is Thinning
Your eye area contains some of the thinnest skin on your entire body. Because the skin is delicate and thin, it makes it easy to see blood vessels through the skin which makes your eye circles look darker. This is simply how your skin is so there isn’t much you can do about it, except for using products that help thicken the skin and reduce those dark circles.
Having a proper eye care routine can help rebuild skin around the eyes and keep it looking bright and youthful. The best products to help with this have ample peptides and amino acids that work to rebuild the structure of your skin so it can get stronger over time. If you are over the age of 40, you should focus on your eye care routine as your eye area has already started to thin out and swift action should be taken to prevent dark circles from getting worse!
