Have you ever wondered why your dark circles just don’t seem to go away? Or how come your eyes are just so puffy first thing in the morning? Run through our quick checklist to see what you are or aren’t doing so you can get rid of puffy, dark under eyes once and for all.
- Get a full night’s rest.
Lack of sleep causes blood vessels under eyes to dilate, creating a tell-tale shadow under your eyes. Most adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night – any less is doing you no favours and is causing dark circles under your eyes.
- Do a gentle facial massage
Both darkness and puffiness can be caused by fluid retention in the eye area, which occurs when there isn’t enough circulation to naturally move the fluid build-up along. A lymphatic facial massage helps to relax muscles in the eye area, and help clear out excess fluid that causes dark circles and puffiness.
- Invest in a good eye cream
Skin care treatments are essential for supporting the naturally thin skin under the eye. It naturally thins as we age, making blood vessels and puffiness more prominent. Peptide-containing eye creams like the Dark Circle Eye Cream [add product link when website is live] help to strengthen and thicken delicate under eye skin, reducing the appearance of dark circles and under eye bags.
- Stay hydrated
Our eye creams are perfectly formulated to reverse the signs of ageing and improve the appearance of puffy, tired under eyes. We’ve specially chosen skin-nourishing peptides that promote circulation, allowing excess fluid to be carried away from under eyes and eliminating dark circles and puffiness. Age-caused dark circles are also erased by skin-strengthening peptides, which brighten the under eye area by reinforcing thin under eye skin from within.
