Boys might call us drama queens but we do have special talents when it comes to crying over dark circles. We might be ready with the best outfit but everything goes for a toss when we spot under eye darkness. While facials and massages are surely some of the answers to ‘How to remove dark circles’ there are a variety of other routes to fight dark circles. Here are some of them...
Invest in an eye cream
When it comes to skin care, it’s all about following a routine. Your skin isn’t going to change overnight. So a regime definitely helps and as far as beating under eye circles is concerned, you need to invest in an eye cream. If you’re looking for an effective eye cream, we suggest you go with the Pond’s Firm & Lift Eye Contour Lifter that targets the skin around your eye to firm it up and brighten your under eye area.
If you’re looking for the answer to ‘how to remove your dark circles’, taking the makeup route might just be a good idea. Go for an effective concealer that brightens and covers up the dark circles. Our favourite is the stick format one that helps us conceal our dark circles easily. We suggest using the Lakmé White Intense Concealer Stick with SPF 20. This one comes in fair and medium shades that give you coverage along with protection from the sun.
Get adequate sleep
A well-rested body equals flawless skin. Your skin goes through a rigorous process of repair during the night. Hence, sleeping for a good 8 hours will allow your skin to rejuvenate itself and fight fatigue if you truly want to get rid of dark circles.
Rely on SPF
Do you think you’re doing enough by opting for a moisturiser? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Your sensitive skin deserves much more than that. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on fighting dark circles. All you really need to do is get your hands on a broad spectrum SPF that puts up a strong fight against UVA and UVB rays—harmful sun rays that cause tanning and pigmentation. You know that means more visible dark circles, right? If you’re feeling alarmed already, order yourself a sunscreen now!
Give naturals a chance
Ever wondered why many beauty experts rely on their kitchen to solve skin problems? Well, that’s ‘coz naturals might actually be the solution to your concerns. For dark circles in particular, we suggest going with a tomato and lemon juice mix. Tomatoes have bleaching properties and so do lemons. Mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with half teaspoon lemon juice. Apply this mix to your under eye area for 10 minutes and wash off.
