7 tips to reduce dark circles under the eyes
If you think caffeine is an enemy to your skin, some tips from dermatologists may surprise you. 7 of them will help you to have brighter eyes.
1. Be careful with drinks
Consumption of caffeinated beverages does not cause fluid loss and dehydration, however, they can have a mild diuretic effect.
Caffeine can constrict the blood vessels surrounding the eye area reducing the appearance of swelling and fatigue.
2. Reduce sinus blockage
Be careful if you have a cold all the time. Chronic closure of the sinuses can cause the veins under the eyes to fill with dark-colored blood. As a result, veins can be visible through the skin and create dark circles around the eyes. Experts suggest cleaning the sinuses from time to time.
3. Use retinol and niacinamide
Niacinamide is an antioxidant that helps reduce redness and hyperpigmentation as well as soothe inflamed skin. It is often added to retinol products to double the effect. So pay attention to skin care products with these elements.
4. Use caffeinated masks
You can apply ground coffee or use instant coffee masks to reduce swelling, fatigue and dark skin. Just do not use it every day to not overdo it. Caffeine also contains amino acids, which can stimulate the production of collagen in your skin. Therefore a mask with caffeine composition can be applied all over your face.
5. Add avocado to your breakfast
Do not deprive the body of natural fats. Eating products like avocado, salmon, cheese and other dairy products can help you maintain healthy cell membranes which will retain water and nutrients.
6. Check the position of the head during sleep
Get the right pillow that will not be too low for you. If you stay up all night, fluid can accumulate under your eyelids. May cause swelling and tired appearance.
Avoid scented skin care products
Dark circles can appear due to constant irritation, due to asthma for example. If you think so, an expert recommends using a 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day and avoiding scented skin care products.
