Dark circles under the eyes can have many different causes–lack of sleep, allergies, eye rubbing, excessive sun exposure, oversleeping, staying up too late, to name a few.
In my own research to solve my OWN dark circles, here are a few solutions that have helped.
Put something cold on your eyes in the morning, such as cucumber slices or our GUA SHA STONE, to help make the veins thinner underneath your eyes, thus making them not stand out so much.
7-8 hours a night should be sufficient. Minimize electronic use at night if possible, and sleep in darkness. Eye masks help keep it nice and dark if you don’t have blackout curtains.
Keep your head more elevated while you sleep to prevent blood from pooling in your face and around your eyes.
Our BOTANICAL LIFT EYE GEL contains niacinimide, caffeine, vitamin C, vitamin K and chamomile to help brighten and reduce puffiness.
Keep in mind that it could be a genetic thing. Some family lines, races and ethnicities naturally have darker circles under their eyes than others, like my Italian heritage, for example. And that's ok.
So do what you can do, use a tip or two above, but live your life and focus on the truly important things like family, friends, health.
Here's to living your best life!
