With aging Dark Circles under the eyes or around the eyes is one of the most common complaints and can be caused by a variety of situations.
What Can Help To Reduce - Prevent or Eliminate Dark Circles?
For most the answer comes in preventative treatments when they first start to see the circles. There are brand new ingredients on the market that help to keep the pooling blod under the eyes moving. These creams also help to remove the puffiness of the eyes that comes from stagnant blood flow. Two of the best known for this are Haloxyl and Phytotonin
So What Causes Dark Circles?
We believe the most common causes are found from excess stagnation in the blood flow that can accumulate under the eyes. We believe that the second reason is thinning skin under the eyes that shows the blood that tends to pool in pockets.
For this reason excess sodium can make dark circles and puffy eyes or eye bags worse. Since sodium increases water retention. High blood pressure can also make dark circles and eye bags
worse for the same reason. Age and lack of sleep also tend to increase the puffiness around eyes as well as eye bags. The thinner skin as you age makes the blog and veins much more transparent. Stress or lack of sleep causes the facial muscles to lose its tone allowing more of a pit underneath the eyes. But wait there is help!
Treatments For Dark Circles
Currently there are no good laser treatments for dark circles under the eyes
or around the eyes. However several years ago there was a breakthrough in herbal extracts, in a specific combination by a company called Sederma that has had tremendous success with both the darker circles and the puffy eyes. Sederma only sells the extracts and not finished products. We use these extracts in our eye cream for dark circles and puffy eyes. Use the links to the left to find the perfect products for you. Also look for more peptide combinations that can help to firm loose skin, as well facial skin tightening. The amount of peptides is important and when combined with aloe the combination is super potent.
