Video. Say goodbye to dark circles and wrinkles at 50! 8 perfect contours to rejuvenate your look
Guide to eliminate dark circles under the eyes and end a tired face
We like the increase in hours of sunshine typical of the summer season, but it makes us go to bed later, that's how it is. And since the alarm clock rings at the same time, our sleep time is reduced, which makes dark circles appear. For this reason, we resort more to products such as serums to eliminate them, correctors so that they are not noticed, or products with active ingredients such as vitamin K, which come in handy to deflate our eye contour.
There are different types of dark circles, caused by different reasons. Pigmented dark circles (brown or dark) are usually hereditary and are the most difficult to eliminate, unless you resort to laser treatments. The sunken ones are usually produced by the passage of time, since the skin of this area of our face becomes thinner and can improve with hyaluronic acid treatments. And the dwellings, which are what we are dealing with today, appear due to lack of sleep because the entire area is congested.
To treat dark circles under the eyes, eye contours that include active ingredients that reinforce microcirculation, such as butcher's broom, vitamin K, caffeine or gingko biloba, are recommended; as well as arnica, an anti-inflammatory ingredient, which also helps speed up circulation. If the eye contour also has a metallic or roll-on applicator, much better, because it helps decongest the area and promotes circulation.
And if you help these active ingredients penetrate your skin with a gentle massage, all the better. Start the routine with a gentle tapping with the fingertips, from the tear area to the temple area. When putting on the eye contour, make gentle smoothing movements along the eye bone area, from the center outwards. Then, perform a light massage in a figure 8 from the tear duct to the temple, up through the eyebrow and across the top of the nose to the other tear duct of the other eye, and repeat on the other eye.
