How do I get rid of dark circles under my eyes?

October 03, 2017


Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing dark circles under your eyes? What about hearing friends, family members, or coworkers commenting about how tired you look? If you’re frustrated about bags under your eyes, it’s time for you to know how to deal with them. Here are the top remedies for treating your dark circles and having a well-rested appearance.

Hydrating Creams 

Eye creams and anti-aging serums can reduce hyperpigmentation under your eyes. But be careful about the ones you choose, because some topical treatments contain harsh ingredients that can irritate the delicate skin under your eyes. Look for products with high-quality, natural ingredients, including

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Algae extract
  • Rosehip oil
  • Polypeptides

Eye cream should also be paraben-free, non-greasy, color dye-free, and fragrance-free. We recommend our Dark Circle Eye Cream and anti-aging skin serums.

Sun Protection

Harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun can damage your skin and contribute to pigmentation. You should apply sunscreen with 30 SPF or more, wear sunglasses, and wear a billed hat to make sure the sun doesn’t exacerbate your dark circles.

Allergy Treatments

Your under-eye circles might get worse if you have allergies, especially if you rub your eyes frequently. If this is a problem for you, you might want to talk to a doctor about eyedrops or antihistamines.

Beauty Sleep

One of the best things you can do for your appearance is getting adequate shut-eye. Getting enough sleep can reduce dark pigment, fullness of under-eye bags, and reduce redness in your eyes.

These methods can reduce or eliminate most cases of dark under-eye circles. Be patient and give your skin some time to react to topical treatments, sleep, and any necessary allergy medications. Only in extreme cases will you ever need to consider more drastic measures such as laser treatments or filling agents.
