This article is gonna be about how you can get rid of dark eye circles using 3 different methods which you can do by yourself at home. I’m also gonna show you a recipe for the dark eye circles magic pads that you should use every single night before bed.
Causes Of Dark Eye Circles
To figure out how to get rid of your dark eye circles you have to know what’s causing them:
It’s a lot harder to get rid of dark eye circles for peoples who usually get them from their genetics. This is because they are a lot more resistant to different treatments.
Another thing that causes dark eye circles is increased pigmentation around your eyes, which is caused by inflammation or irritation around your eyes. If you continuously rub your eyes with a towel after you wash your face, chances are you’re gonna get some nasty dark eye circles.
3. Facial Bone Structure
If your eyes are kind of deep set in your face, the shadow caused by eyebrow bone can also make it seem like you have dark eye circles.
As you get older you start to lose elasticity in your skin and your under eye skin becomes more thinner, which makes your blood vessels more obvious than they were before. Also you will irritate this area a lot more quicker.
Other causes are:
- Poor Blood Circulation;
- Lack Of Sleep;
- The Sun.
Tips To Get Rid Of Dark Eye Circles
After all these reasons, what are you gonna do to get rid of dark eye circles? Here are a few tips which I hope will help you:
1. Find Out If You’re Allergic
If you’re allergic during summer time and it makes your eyes watering and you’re constantly rubbing your eyes, just make sure you get rid of that by consulting your doctor and taking the prescription pills.
2. Wear Sunglasses
Make sure you always have sunglasses and sunscreen on your face every time you go out in the sun.
3. Get A Proper Diet
