How To Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes
Do you have dark circles under your eyes? If so, you’re not alone; it’s a common condition among both men and women. Dark circles come from hyperpigmentation around the eye, and are most commonly seen in the elderly, non-white ethnic groups, and people who have a genetic predisposition to hyperpigmentation
The bad news is that dark circles are often accompanied by puffiness. They can make you look older than you really are. The good news is that there are steps you can take to minimize and even eliminate their appearance.
Get More Sleep
Studies are showing most of us don’t get enough sleep. Not sleeping enough can do a number on your health. It’s been associated with everything from mental illness to heart problems. Those dark circles under your eyes might also be a result. Try to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night to minimize the damage sleep deprivation can have on your health and complexion.
Rest Your Eyes
Eye strain from looking at a television or computer screen for too long can cause the blood vessels around your eyes to expand, and therefore contribute to hyperpigmentation. If your job requires that you spend long hours staring at a computer screen, give yourself a 10-minute break once in a while to rest your eyes.
How much water do you drink in a day? Your hydration level has a huge effect on your skin – especially under your eyes where the skin is close to the bone. When you’re dehydrated, the skin under your eyes will sink in. Try and drink at least 8 ounces of water every 1.5 to 2 hours to keep yourself hydrated all day.
