If you’re an adult in the modern world, dark circles come with the territory. Whether it smoking, stressing, eating unhealthy foods or binge-watching TV shows instead of getting a good night’s sleep, your lifestyle makes it impossible to go back to the days when you had baby smooth skin under your eyes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about these bad boys. The weekend is a great time to catch up on lost sleep and spend some time on your skincare routine to do some damage control.
We have made a list of three easy steps that you can follow to reduce and eventually get rid of the dark circles under your eyes.
The bags under your eyes are a clear indication of bad circulation and dehydration. To improve the circulation, try massaging the skin under your eyes with a serum. Once you’ve done that, you can move on to treating your dark circles with a cold compress. One way of doing this is by putting some ice cubes in a clean cloth, which you can place on your eyes for some time. Our favorite way is by putting your jade roller in the freezer and using it on your eyes and face in the morning. This will reduce inflammation and help circulation.
If you want to treat your dark circles, you don’t have to go much farther than your kitchen. We can’t stress enough on how great Aloe vera is for your skin. It comes with anti-inflammatory properties, moisturizing effects, and also helps your skin look younger and fresher. Apply an aloe vera gel under your eyes before sleeping and keep it on for 10-15 minutes. This will soothe the skin under your eyes and trust us when we say this – it’ll make you sleep like a baby.
Our Hydrating Face Moisturizer has aloe vera in it along with antioxidants and vitamins which all work great to hydrate and quench your skin.
To follow a healthy skin care routine, you need a daily eye serum, which will help you tackle dark circles after every night you didn’t spend sleeping. To remove puffiness and give your eyes a cooling effect, try our Eye Corrector Serum.
