What is it?
Dark circles are very frequent and are not always something to be worried about. But noticing your under eye area to become darker than usual or your dark circles to expand can be a manifestation of harmful lifestyle changes to be aware of. If you look tired, it’s probably because you are!
Origins & main causes
Dark circles have a large genetics component, but many different lifestyle factors can make them worse. Sleep deprivation, excessive sun exposure, or dehydration are things to be mindlful about. Having a lot of screen time can also strain your eyes, which makes your blood vessels dilate, making your under eye area darker.
What to do
The best way to get rid of dark circles is to fight them at the source. Ingredients to add in your skincare routine would be antioxydiants and anything that prevents your skin from dehydrations: for example ceramides, green tea extract, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, or vitamin C.
