One of the most common signs of aging is periorbital dark circles, which are dark blemishes that appear under or around the eyes. These are caused by a reduction in the skin’s natural collagen, which makes the skin appear thin and stretched, allowing blood to be visible through it. This gives the appearance of having bruises under the eyes. Getting rid of dark circles is, fortunately, not too difficult. Here, we’ll go over some techniques for getting rid of dark circles, as well as what to look for when considering creams for getting rid of dark circles.
If your periorbital dark circles are caused by factors other than aging, such as lack of sleep, stress, allergies, or medication, then getting rid of dark circles may be possible simply by adjusting your schedule or medications. Getting more sleep, taking steps to reduce stress, and treating your allergies can all contribute to getting rid of dark circles. For many people, however, getting rid of dark circles is more difficult, especially when they are caused by aging or a genetic condition.
For those that want to try getting rid of dark circles using eye care products, there are a few things to take into account. The tissue around the eyes is very sensitive, meaning most general skin care products can be irritating or even damaging to this delicate skin. Getting eye creams that are designed to help with getting rid of dark circles is ideal, but even general skin care for the area around the eyes can help. The way eye cream assists with getting rid of dark circles is through restoring collagen to the skin, which makes the skin fuller, tighter, and brighter. This will not only help you with getting rid of dark circles, but will also reduce the appearance of eye bags (periorbital puffiness) and wrinkles around the eyes.
When getting rid of dark circles using an eye cream, you will typically want to apply the cream once or twice a day for a period of several weeks. Some products may work quickly, taking only a week or two, while some may take up to two months. If after two months you have little luck in getting rid of dark circles, a different product may provide better results. After the initial treatment period, continue using the cream occasionally to help getting rid of dark circles before they appear in the future.
