The skin around our eyes is very thin and delicate, with fewer oil glands than the rest of our face. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, two proteins found in our skin, which causes wrinkles and dryness under our eyes, according to Pooja Nagdev, cosmetologist and aromatherapist, Inatur, Ayurveda, and Aromatherapy. As a result, it is critical to protect the skin beneath the eyes from UVA, UVB, and blue rays.
Many factors, such as overexposure to sun or blue rays, ageing, or even genetics, can cause the blood vessels under the eyes to become inflamed, resulting in dark under eye circles. Following a routine is the most effective way to treat under eye circles.
What is there to be done?
*Use a good sun protection cream every morning to prevent skin ageing. *Keep the area under the eyes moisturised and hydrated without clogging it up with heavy creams.
It is essential to tap massage lightly with fingers twice a day to prevent blood from accumulating under the eyes, which leads to darker under eye colour. Do not smear.
Here are some simple natural remedies to try: *Potato is an excellent remedy for swollen eyes. It has been shown to contain astringent enzymes. It aids in the reduction of inflammation and the tightening of the skin. Slice the potato, prick it, and place it in the refrigerator. Apply this daily for 10 minutes over the eyelids, then rinse with water. After that, apply a good under eye cream.
Cucumber has skin-energizing and mild astringent properties, though it is not as effective as potato. Fresh cucumber, cut into thick slices, should be refrigerated. For 10 minutes, place the slices over your eyes. The cucumber juice that has remained on the eyelids can be gently tapped with the fingertips.
*Tomatoes are high in lycopene, which makes the skin soft and supple. It also aids in the reduction of the appearance of dark under-eye circles. Slice the tomatoes and place them over the eyelids, or extract tomato juice and mix it in equal parts with aloe vera gel. This works to lighten the area under the eyes while also providing hydration.
These simple natural routines should make it simple for you to get rid of under eye circles. It is also critical that these incidents do not reoccur. To avoid it, get enough sleep, don’t spend too much time staring at screens, and always remove your makeup before going to bed.
