Best Eye-Creams for Dark Circles
The eye area is one of the first places to show signs of aging. This may happen as early as your 20s. The skin under your eyes thins out in your 30s and beyond, making the blood vessels there more obvious and the area look darker.
A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that eye creams containing a derivative of vitamin K, as well as vitamin A, C and E, were most effective in reducing dark under-eye circles while also decreasing wrinkles.
Try sleeping with your head slightly elevated. This prevents fluid collecting under your eyes, which create shadows.
Daily moisturizing reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. “But you also have to live a healthy lifestyle,” says dermatologist Gervaise Gerstner. “Cut down on high-sodium foods, get enough sleep, and drink plenty of water.”
