Eyes are the windows to ours souls…perhaps an old clichue? If you are looking for youth this is the first place. There is no worse sight than dark rims encircling a pair of eyes and making us look like tiered qnd aged beyond our years. Be it because of the increased stress levels or long hours of strain, under eye dark circles have become a common problem among women and even men.
Fortunately, dark circles under the eyes are not an irresolvable problem. But to cure them effectively, it is important to understand the intrinsic underlying cause. Lets explore the culprits or dark circles and the options that we have to correct them.
Lack of Sleep or Fatigue
The number on culprit for dark circles is lack of sleep. The body rejuvenates itself during the sleep process. This is when the body rests and heals itself. When the sleep cycle is disrupted and the body doesn’t get enough rest, fatigue sets in. fatigue makes the skin pale and the blood that pools beneath the eye becomes more apperant, thus giving a dark appearance. The eye area is very thin and fragile, and therefore exhibits the dark color immediately.
It is very important to let your body rest and revitalize itself. Before going to bed, use a good eye cream to soothe your eyes. Try Obagi ELASTIderm Night Eye Cream, a unique eye cream that contains anti aging properties that not only corrects under eye circles but also erases fine lines and wrinkles.
For severe dark circles, you would also need to use a day cream like Obagi Nu-Derm Eye Cream, a light moisturizing cream that reduces dark circles and prevents dryness under the eyes. You can also try Remergent Microcirculation Therapy or NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream.
Lack of Hydration
Dark circles under the eyes become more pronounced as a result of inadequate hydration levels of the body. Less water intake and consumption of liquids like coffee, tea, alcohol and salty food stuffs further deteriorate the problem of dehydration. Though people don’t realize if their bodies are dehydrated, the skin shows the signs well enough.
Make sure you drink lots of water throughout the day, about 6-8 glasses of water is good. And avoid caffeinated drinks and soft drinks. They do more harm than hydration.
Diet and nutrition are other factors that determine the health of the skin. while a balanced diet ensure healthy and glowing skin, lack of it shows skin damage like under eye circles and, loose and saggy skin
Include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables in your diet. Healthy diet transforms into healthy skin and eliminates the appearance of under eye circles.
If appropriate care is taken, under eye dark circles can be resolved and beautiful, radiant, youthful sin can be yours.
