Ever wake up in the morning, with those horrible black circles under your eyes? Pretty sure we all have had atleast one of those days. But how do we get rid of them before we have to apply a good amount of concealer for our face to appear “normal”? Here are some tips & tricks I recommend for those darkened circles.
Tip #1 IDENTIFY ALLERGIES
This can be the most common cause of under eye darkness. Check with your doctor to find any allergies you didn't know you had, so they can be treated properly.
Tip#2 AVOID RUBBING YOUR EYES
This causes irritation to the skin and can break tiny capillaries beneath the skin causing the black circle.
Tip #3 GET PLENTY OF REST
We know it's hard with the busy lives we lead now-a-days, but you should be shooting for atleat 8 hours of sleep.
Tip#4 WEAR SUNGLASSES
Wear sunglasses when you are outside to protect your eyes from the sun's harmful rays.- This will prevent any sunburn or damage that the sun could cause.
Trick #1 APPLY COOL CLOTH TO EYES
When you are going to sleep, wet a washcloth with a small amount of cool water and lay over your eyes while you are sleeping.
Trick #2 APPLY COOL TEA BAGS TO EYES IN THE MORNING
The tannin in teadbages reduces swelling and discoloration. Put the teabags over your eyes, while laying down in the morning for about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to refrigerate damp caffeinated tea bags overnight.
Trick #3 USE MASSAGE TECHNIQUE WHEN APPLYING EYE TREATMENTS
Take 3 fingers and start from the inner corner. Use a light pressing/release action while working towards the outer corner of the eye. When you get to the temple hold for a minimum of 10 seconds. This allows the capillaries to decompress and flushes fluids. Also the heat from your fingers allows the product to be absorbed into the skin easier.
If you have tried these tips & tricks before and nothing is working, try our Ultrox, which not only reduces under eye darkness, but prevents fine lines as well. You can also try one of our Hyaluronic Moisturizers, just make sure to use the massage technique to really help boost results.
