The only thing worse than feeling tired, is looking tired.
So rather than let those tired eyes bring you down all day, we put together a list of some of the most popular and effective ways to let your energy shine through your eyes:
For a quick fix, a concealer is probably one of the most common ways to hide the dark circles under your eyes.
Make sure to choose a tone that matches your complexion; if you go too light, your dark circles will just end up looking gray rather than lighter.
If you’re looking for something a little more permanent for those dark circles under eyes, try focusing your diet on foods rich in vitamin K to fortify blood vessel walls. Or, look for a cream that is fortified with vitamin K.
It might seem cliché, but cucumbers are a natural astringent, and by placing them on your eyes for fifteen minutes or so, they will naturally absorb any excess fluid and help tighten your skin.
If you find that you’re having a chronic problem with bags underneath your eyes, try to limit your consumption of alcohol and drink more water. This will reduce the amount of fluid that you retain, especially in areas like your face.
After you’ve finished your tea, throw your tea bag into the fridge for a few minutes so it’s cool enough that it won’t aggravate the sensitive skin around your eyes. Then, when the bag has cooled, set it on each one of your eyes for at least five minutes at a time.
The caffeine in the tea bag will stimulate the blood flow around your eyes, helping your body’s natural process of clean up. Dark circles and excess fluid are really just a visible way to see when your body isn’t working quite as optimally as it can.
When you’re suffering from a lack of sleep, or an excess amount of stress, your body leaves behind damaged red and white blood cells, causing dark and puffy under eyes.
Even though the cells are left all over your body, the extremely thin skin around your eyes acts as a window to what is happening in the rest of your body.
