So you’ve had enough sleep, your stress levels are low and you’ve been eating right. So why do you still wake up to dark circles under your eyes?
Most of us would do absolutely anything to get rid of dark circles under the eyes. After all, they can make you look older than you really are and give an impression your skin is unhealthy even when you’re taking the best care of it.
We’ve compiled a list of the 4 best ways to fight back and control dark circles so you can spend less time looking tired and more time enjoying life!
Always Wear Sunscreen
Because the skin under your eye is so thin and delicate, it can be extra susceptible to sun damage. Believe it or not the sun can add more darkness to your under eye area as well as make it look wrinkled and dry.
Always make sure you’re applying sunscreen to your whole face but do not miss the eye area! It might just save you a trip to Sephora for some heavy duty concealer!
Peptides! Peptides! Peptides!
What has your eye serum done for you lately? Well, if you’re not using one with the right kind of ingredients then it’s probably doing a lot less than you think.
Because a serum is made up of smaller molecules than a cream, it’s your best defense against eye wrinkles and of course, dark circles. Applying an eye serum like our South Beach Skin Lab Eye Lift Serum which is packed with peptides will actually help brighten the eye area. It also adds a hefty dose of moisture to the area which is sure to diminish the look of those pesky eye wrinkles.
Use A Gentle Oil Based Makeup Remover
When you rub your skin to pry off your liner or mascara, you’re causing inflammation and capillary damage — both of which can contribute to dark circles. Cleansing oils, like our South Beach Skin Lab Oil Cleanser allow you to softly remove even the most waterproof of eye makeup to keep your capillaries healthy and prevent dark circles.
Cool Down The Eye Area
From washing your face to applying an eye mask, you want to make sure that you’re using cool water or a cold compress. The cooling feeling around your eyes will not only bring down any bags or puffiness around the eyes, it will also brighten the eye area and reduce redness or darkness from under the eyes. The result? Bright, beautiful eyes!
