Stress, fatigue and a busy work-life balance can easily get the best of us. Before you know it, you experience feelings of anxiety, exhaustion and let’s not even mention the dark under-eye circles that are getting worse and worse.
This is a collaborative post
If you’re a busy mum, it’s very likely that you are constantly fighting the appearance of dark under-eye circles. And for some, the fatigue and stress might even result in signs of premature ageing. Keep on reading to find out how you can get rid of dark circles and wrinkles under your eyes.
What Causes Dark Under-Eye Circles?
Anyone can have dark under-eye circles, whilst it may be present more in some than others. There are various reasons for dark circles to form, and sometimes it’s simply a case of back luck. The two most common causes of dark circles are fatigue and genetics.
When you’re sleeping too little or too much, in the longer run, it can cause dark circles to appear under your eyes. Sleep deprivation can result in your skin becoming duller and paler. At the same time, it causes the dark tissues and blood vessels underneath your skin to become more prevalent. The result? Dark circles under your eyes, that let everyone know just how tired you actually are.
However, when we were talking about ‘bad luck’, we were referring to dark circles being part of genetics. Unfortunately, dark under-eye circles can be inherited and if that’s the case, they often show early in childhood. If your dark circles are genetically inherited, it’s always a bit trickier to get rid of them. If you manage at all – because it’s written in your DNA. But don’t worry, we still have some great solutions for you!
How To Get Rid Of Dark Under-Eye Circles
So… how can you actually get rid of or reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes? There are said to be various treatments, including applying a cold compress, getting extra sleep, drinking more water, and covering them up with makeup. Whilst some of these are doable and practical tips (concealer is a lifesaver), getting more sleep is sometimes simply not an option. Especially if you have young kids who keep you awake during the night. And you don’t have the opportunity to go for a quick nap in the afternoon.
Obagi Medical has formulated a skincare product that is specifically focusing on getting rid of dark circles whilst also boosting the skin’s elasticity and firmness. With fatigue and stress, usually, also come signs of ageing. If you’ve passed the age of 30, your collagen is slowing down quickly, which results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
