How to Get Rid of Dark Circles

While dark circles are not the sign of serious health issues, they can be considered as a sign that you’re not doing what’s healthy for the body. The appearance of the darkened skin around your eyes can look quite unappealing. Here’s what you can do about it…

The skin around the eye area is similar to the rest of our body, but much thinner. Hence, the effects of something that happens to your body will show up quicker on the eye area before it becomes apparent for the rest of the body.


Some of the causes of dark circles include lack of sleep, lack of nutrition in diet, sun exposure, fluid retention, heredity, hyper-pigmentations, allergies, dermatitis, or even as simple as the natural aging process.


And rest assured, getting rid of dark circles is certainly doable.

1. Getting enough sleep


Make sure you get enough sleep daily. This is a good start to reducing the appearance of dark circles significantly. When you are sleep deprived, your body does not get enough time to make necessary repairs after a day’s activity. This takes a toll on the body. We can see this on our skin, starting from the thinnest skin surrounding the eye area. Depending on your age, you may need more or fewer sleep hours than others but it’s safe to say, getting shut-eye for seven or eight hours is a good start.


2. Purge out water retention


In some cases when your body retains fluids more than it needs, usually due to diets high in salts, your eyes look darkened and puffy. Applying cold compression to the eyes or sleeping with extra pillows will elevate the area and prevents extra fluids from pooling unnecessarily.


3. Moisturize


We that dry, parched skin looks dull and unhealthy. The same thing applies to the skin surrounding the eye area. Plus it is more prominent here since the skin is thinner. Give your under eye area some TLC with intense moisturizing cream for nourishment.


As mentioned, since the skin at the eye area is thinner, you should get eye cream instead of using a facial moisturizer. Eye creams are formulated for quicker absorption. Plus, most eye creams also come with ingredients that are specific to undo the appearance of dark circles such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins C, vitamin E and caffeine.


4. Skin-lightening cream


If you have a serious case of dark circles and want to remedy the issue quickly, consider skin-lightening creams that work on pigmentation in the eye area. Notable ingredients to look for including kojic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin c, and glutathione to name a few.


5. Medical treatments for dark circles
