A common problem people face is dark circles or bags under the eyes. The skin beneath the eye is very thin and fragile and is often the first place we start to show the signs of age. And thus the eye area needs to be cared for differently. So, let’s have a look at how to eliminate under eye circles…
What are under eye circles?
Under eye circles are often caused by blood pooling beneath the skin under the eyes. This is often due to inflammation causing the blood vessels to become constricted. It is usually more noticeable in the morning as you have spent the last 8 hours laying flat without the help of gravity to get the blood moving.
What causes under eye circles?
Allergies & Congestion – When your sinuses are stuffy, it causes the blood vessels around the eyes to dilate, in turn causing the eyes to darken.
Sleep Deprivation – No sleep results in high inflammation levels. This makes it hard for your inflamed blood vessels to drain the blood from under the eyes.
Too Much Salt – Loading up on the salt causes fluid retention all over the body. This can cause darkness and puffiness around the eyes.
Crying – Shedding tears increases inflammation around the eyes leading to dark circles.
Age – As we age, the skin around our eyes gets thinner. This makes the blood vessels under the skin more visible. Fortunately there are things you can do to improve this.
Hyperpigmentation – If the darkness under the eye is brown in colour and doesn’t fluctuate, this may be hyperpigmentation. The causes of this could be sun exposure, it could be hereditary or trauma to the eye.
What can you do about it?
Stay Hydrated – This will help to reduce the Salt in the system.
Increase Circulation – Get moving! Any kind of physical exercise will help to improve circulation. Walking, running, going to the gym, yoga, anything to get the blood flowing in the body to improve your circulation.
Introduce Topical Peptides – Peptides are a smaller version of protein made out of amino acids. Amino acids are essential to maintaining healthy and youthful skin.
