Most of us have experienced dark circles under our eyes at one point or another. This post discusses several of the causes and what Elysee Products can do to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
First, it is important to assess what the cause of your dark circles is to know how to move forward with treatments and products:
Aging: As we age, we begin to lose collagen around our eyes. That, combined with the thinning of the skin will worsen the look of dark circles under the eye.
Sleep deprivation: One of the most common causes of dark circles is sleep deprivation. This can be prevented by getting your full 8 hours of sleep.
Stress: Stress can cause the skin around the eyes to darken; finding a positive way to relieve stress can decrease eye darkness. Try taking a walk or listen to your favorite tunes to reduce stress.
Genetics: Dark circles under the eye may be an inherited trait that appears at childhood.
Allergies: Dark circles can appear around the eyes when nasal congestion causes the blood vessels around the eyes to expand.
Lifestyle: Excessive Smoking, drinking, unhealthy eating habits, obesity.
Anemia: Iron deficiency can keep oxygenated blood from reaching the vessels around the eye increasing the appearance of dark circles.
Excessive Sun Exposure: Encourages the body to produce more melanin.
Whether it’s genetic, stress or any of the other problems listed above, Elysee products can help lessen the look and in some cases topically treat dark eye circles:
