How to reduce dark circles

How to reduce dark circles? What is it caused by?

Dark circles are caused by stress, poor blood circulation, irregular sleeping/life habit and genetics. It shows more as we get older. There’re many ways to help reduce it. For example: leaving refrigerated cold green tea bags under the eye area for a few minutes, getting more sleep and applying a good eye cream/serum that contains vitamin C daily (vitamin C has brightening effect, if use in the morning, remember to use sunscreen after that before going out).

Here’s a good link for home remedies if you’re interested: (I’m all about nature products when it comes to skin care)

 

In the makeup world, a good concealer can help reduce the dark circle appearance drastically. Make sure to apply a good layer to moisturizer or eye cream before applying the concealer so the concealer can go on smoothly. Look for something that’s a tone or two lighter than your skin and also dries fast and creases less (MAC Cosmetics has a good one, another brand I really like is LA Girls Cosmetics). If you have olive or darker skin tone, go for the concealer that has orange color in it, then lightly cover it with a medium to full coverage foundation that matches your skin tone. Then, set it with a translucent powder. Remember, less is more.

Stay Healthy and Beautiful 🙂
