Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes can be caused by genetics, aging, and living a stressful unbalanced lifestyle.
The skin around the eyes is extremely thin and delicate. It is important to limit the amount of pulling that we subject the eye area to. Be extra gentle when applying and removing makeup, and always use your ring finger – the weakest finger – along with light, tapping motions to apply under-eye skincare products. This will ensure that you are not stretching the already thin skin around the eyes and causing premature wrinkles.
Get enough sleep, drink enough water to flush out toxins, lower salt intake, and maintain a healthy diet that includes adequate intake of iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin K – all of which target poor blood circulation and lack of tissue oxygenation, the two main culprits of dark circles and puffiness. Include vitamins A, C, and E. in your diet.
Use gentle and effective skincare products that are formulated specifically for the sensitive eye area. There are no sebaceous oil glands or collagen and elastin fibers in the immediate area around our eyes, so it is extremely easy for the skin there to lose firmness and become dehydrated over time. The products that we apply to this area should contain ingredients that work to nourish, hydrate, firm, and gently correct discoloration. After cleansing and toning the skin, use a moisturizing and anti-aging eye product like Darphin Dark Circles Relief & De-Puffing Eye Serum that contains a blend of ingredients that will effectively target the most common signs of stress and aging in the eye contour.
