Here are three excellent ways to reduce dark circles and look fresher, no matter your age.
One of the most important things to eliminate from your lifestyle is smoking. It reduces oxygen flow to your cells and causes collagen breakdown. Cutting down on the consumption of sugar, caffeine and alcohol will also help diminish dark circles. If you have allergies, try to avoid rubbing your eyes. Antihistamines can help lessen allergy symptoms so you will be less inclined to rub this sensitive area.
One of the natural side effects of aging is the breakdown of collagen. As this occurs, the veins and capillaries in the under eye area start to show through the skin, making the area even darker. Use rich serums and eye creams that hydrate and boost collagen production to help combat further damage. Eat foods rich in antioxidants to help reduce the inflammation that leads to the breakdown of this essential protein. Drink adequate amounts of water every day and reduce the sodium in your diet, as it can slow circulation and cause water retention.
If you would like to avoid surgery, dermal fillers provide a non-invasive solution for dark circles and the hollowing of the under eye area. Fillers composed of hyaluronic acid are ideal, including Juvéderm Treatment, Belotero Balance and Restylane Treatment. These dermal fillers are great options to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
