FROM DARK EYES TO ANGELIC BEAUTY

EYESDark circles may be hereditary for some people or simply a part of the aging process, but most people would agree that they are a struggle to conceal. When the fat pad beneath the eye begins to thin with age, it can create a sunken look to the under eye area. Studies have shown that sluggishness of blood flow underneath the eyes may also contribute to dark circles. Vitamin K has been found to diminish the appearance of these dark circles. A recent study published in Cosmetic and Toiletries, included two groups, one that applied an under eye cream containing sunscreen and another that applied an under eye cream containing a combination of vitamin K and retinol. An examination of the under eye color at the beginning of the study and at the end found a significant lightening in the group using the vitamin K and retinol combination.

#1: Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.Eight hours of sleep is a must for all of us, especially for people having dark circles under their eyes.

#2: Close your eyes and cover your eyelids with slices of raw potato or cucumber for 15-20 minutes. Wash with warm water and apply a cream.

#3: Grate a cucumber, squeeze to take out its juice and refrigerate. Make a mixture of lemon juice, lanolin cream and cucumber juice and apply around the eye for 10-15 minutes.

#4: Apply lemon juice on the black circles 2 times a day.

 #5: Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice for dark circles under the eyes.

#6: Apply crushed mint around the eye.

#8: Reduce your intake of vitamin A. Over dose of medications such as Retin A produces “excessive” vascularization.

#9:Topical niacinamide has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a potential treatment for puffy eyes and dark circles.

 #10: Almond helps to remove dark circles and is an excellent “skin food”. Remove the cream applied around the eye after 10 min. No cream should be left on the skin around the eyes for long periods.
