5 Quick & Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Dark Circles
With any skin care issue it seems like "fast results" are never fast enough. And any woman who's ever suffered
with dark under-eye circles will tell you that getting rid of them is never as easy as it should be. We'd like to
do our part to help speed things up for you with 5 specific (not-so-secret) secrets to get rid of dark circles.
Secret #1: Get Enough Sleep
Okay, so this "secret" might seem obvious, but it's important. When you
don't get enough sleep, your skin is likely to be paler than normal. This is a problem because blood vessels
beneath the skin's surface become more visible when you're pale and appear as dark patches under the eyes.
A lack of sleep can be the cause for both occasional and chronic dark circles depending on how distorted your
sleep schedule is. If you're not getting between 7 and 8 hours of restful sleep each night, take a look at what's
getting in the way. Sometimes this is all you need to solve the problem.
Secret #2: Drink Plenty Of Water
Dehydration is the cause of many skin issues and under eye circles are no
exception. When you don't drink enough water each day it can lead to your blood vessels becoming more visible.
They can get dilated or swollen and when this happens under the eyes it's not pretty.
Water also helps to remove toxins from the body which can result in better looking skin. Surprisingly it also
helps prevent water retention which can cause puffiness and under eye bags. Aim for at least 8 glasses a day and
perhaps more depending on your activity level.
Secret #3: Investigate Vitamin Deficiencies
Dark circles and other skin problems can be caused by a vitamin deficiency so
it's worth checking with your doctor to see if this applies to your situation. Vitamin K and iron are examples of nutrients that may be a
factor. It's important to take vitamins and minerals in the right amounts, so please don't try to guess what
your body needs. Talk to your doctor and get the tests he or she recommends.
An added benefit of meeting with your doctor is discussing and ruling out any medical conditions that may be the
cause of your dark circles. All the "quick fixes" in the world won't help if you've got an underlying condition
that needs to be treated first.
Secret #4: Clean Up Your Diet
This isn't really a secret, but you'd sure think it was considering how most
of us eat these days. Eating healthy foods can solve so many health and beauty problems and it's so easy to do
once you get in the habit and see the benefits for yourself.
Don't believe me? Just try to have bad skin when you cut out processed and greasy fried foods. By eating plenty
of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins you'll give your body the nutrition it needs to
stay healthy. Your skin will glow and your dark circles will improve too, especially when they're caused by a
vitamin deficiency. Most people find that circulation and sleep issues are improved with a better diet as well.
Secret #5: Use A High-Quality Eye Cream Each Day
Most moisturizing creams can be used around the eye area so long as
they're not irritating and you take care not to get them in your eyes. However, when you have dark circles it
makes sense to get a cream or serum specifically designed to address the issue.
Select creams with high-quality ingredients designed to lighten dark circles, moisturize and firm the skin if
needed. Because the skin under the eyes is often thinner than the rest of your face and a cause in and of itself
for dark circles, you may want to consider a product that helps boost the collagen produced naturally in your
