We have all heard those ancient tips of removing dark circles. And cucumbers and used tea bags have been the ultimate suggestion. Here are 4 other remedies that can help in reducing those dark circles. One of the most delicate part of the human face is under eyes. You can’t put too much make up to make the dark circles go away, or put too little and find that the patch is more visible than before. Women, especially dark skinned women seem to have this problem of covering up the dark circles because of the difference in skin tone. There are many factors that do contribute to dark circles. And the main reason is lack of sleep and stress. Sometimes with the hectic we seem to endure in our daily lives, we can’t avoid these two.
Here are a few home remedies and suggestions that can help curb the dark circle problem. That is if cucumber and used tea bags are something you aren’t sure of trying!
This is the easiest and most effective remedy to the dark circles. Although it is a temporary fix, it does wonders to the face. Always look for one that is in line with your skin tone and most importantly has UV protective elements in it. This is because the face creams that we normally use can’t help much for the under eye as the skin layer and the skin tone is very much different. Also get something that will last longer, supposing you are out all day and have no time to refresh your face. While using a concealer, its best to use your ring finger to dab and make the cream even. Since the under eye is the most sensitive part, using other fingers or a brush will damage the skin even more.
These are the most convenient and inexpensive gadgets for the eyes. Basically these eye masks have a kind of gel inside their wrapper, all you have to do is chill it in your refrigerator for about half an hour. Then wear it on your eyes for at least 15 to 20 minutes. What it does is, the cold gel will help to decreased the tiredness of the under eyes. The same thing that cucumbers and tea bags do. Yes, of course the results are temporary, however, if done frequently, you will be able to see a huge difference in your face soon enough. For better results, try to use it when you are going to sleep, in that way, there will be no interruption and you can sleep away after!
As mentioned earlier, the tone of the skin around the eyes are different in thickness and texture. And the eye cream has been formulated to tailor the needs of the under eye. It has a skin lighting agent that brings the brightness to the dark circles. Because the under eye is sensitive, choosing a good quality eye cream is important. Never settle for anything cheap, when it comes to the eyes because once there is a scar there, it will be hard to bring the skin tone back to its normal state.
Cosmetic Laser Treatment
If nothing else works, and the dark circles don’t actually go, then opting for surgery can do its long lasting miracles. Laser treatment focuses on the under eye, channeling its rays to the skin, correcting the blood vessels and the pigmentations around it. This treatment can not only brighten the under eyes but also help to eliminate the wrinkles, taking a couple of years off from your face! Who doesn’t want that? Yes, it does a lot of benefits, and it is an option that you can use if you can afford it. Such laser treatments are pricy, as they range between 400$ to 4000$. And if the first session isn’t a success, you have to go back a few times till it is done right.
As far as outer beauty is taken into care, never neglect your inner beauty as well. As age catches up, it is very important to take care of your beauty and health. Try to find ways to reduce stress and also get enough sleep. Because unlike the skin, neglecting this will bring more problems in the future where there is no cure to it.
