People are busier than ever lately. We pack as much as we can into the day and sometimes sleep is pushed to the back burner. Our faces show it with dark under eye circles that make it look like we haven’t slept in weeks. While sleep is only one major contributing factor in developing these unpleasant facial features, arming yourself with some basic knowledge can help with under eye circles treatment.
Getting enough sleep is only part of the solution when dealing with under eye circles. It is also recommended to sleep on your back instead of your side when getting at least 7-9 hours of restful sleep to help eliminate these pesky bags under your eyes. Another suggestion for under eye circles treatment is to use an SPF 30 sunscreen every day and a nourishing night cream under the eyes before bed. Try to find an anti-aging cream that focuses specifically on aging of the delicate skin around the eyes for a better under eye circles treatment. Adding a good moisturizer to your nighttime routine can help remind you of another essential tip to help eliminate eye circles; taking off makeup before bed! They tell women never to sleep in make up for a reason, and we should all be listening by now because it is incredibly harmful to the skin regeneration process that happens while we sleep.
Many factors causing under eye circles are things you put in your body instead on it. Drinking too much alcohol or smoking at all can add to under eye circles, in addition to many other signs of premature aging. Another factor is too much salt in your diet which leads to water retention and puffiness under the eyes. Skin that lacks proper hydration can also show signs of premature aging, including crow’s feet, wrinkles, and under eye circles, because of a lack of the most prevalent compound in the human body. Humans are made up of 70% water and yet most of us forget we need to drink at least 8 glasses a day to stay hydrated. Staying hydrated keeps skin healthy and free from annoying under eye circles!
