Here’s one of the beauty tips for all ladies out there to combat under eye circles. What causes dark under eye circles? Dark rings around the eyes”raccoon eyes”are a hallmark sign of poor sleep. The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin found anywhere in the body, so thin that it’s almost transparent. The darkness under the eye is really circulating blood in the soft tissues beneath the skin. Because lack of sleep affects blood circulation, it’s been theorized that sleep loss causes blood to pool under your eyes, giving you those dreaded dark circles.
Sleep Loss = decreased circulating blood in soft tissues + Delicate skin around eyes = increased dark undereye circles. The good news is that you can reverse this abnormal circulation by getting the right amount of sleep.”
So the good news is, a good night`s sleep will help. But are there any cosmetic products that can help fight raccoon eyes? Try using Vitamin-K, or some eye wrinkle creams like Hydroderm Eye Serum, can provide a temporary tightening and smoothing effect that MAY help minimize the appearance of dark circles.
Here’s a home remedy for dark under eye circles
Grated potatoes can lighten under-eye circles. Potatoes contain an enzyme called catecholase, which is used in cosmetics as a human skin lightener.
Run one spud through your food processor and stuff the raw mash into a piece of cheesecloth.
Apply to the area directly beneath your eye — don’t let the potato juice come in contact with the eye itself — and leave for 15 to 20 minutes.
Wipe away the starchy residue.
