ZAP The Dark Circles Away!

Our eyes are one of the most important features on our face. It helps provide us with emotion and of course one of the most important things, to see! We want to be able to keep our eyes youthful and taken care of, which also means the skin around them. A lot of people struggle with dark circles under the eyes but they don’t know how to fix it.


You might hear people say that all you need to do is sleep more to fix your under eyes but in some cases that’s not true. Being tired isn’t the only cause of dark circles under the eyes. That’s why you should keep an eye out so that you can get closer to finding a cause. Sometimes the dark circles indicate that you should have a change of lifestyle. Under eyes kin is one of the thinnest and most delicate areas of the human body. It’s important that we take care of it the right way so that there won’t be any future complications.


We all know that one of the main causes of dark circles is lack of sleep. When you are sleeping, your body uses that time to repair itself and recuperate. If you’re not giving it the right amount of time, it’s going to start to show. The best way to fix this can be to get more sleep! Our body needs about 8-9 hours of sleep a night so that it can continue to work the way that it has to.


Another cause, according to Blissoma, is poor circulation. The darkness under your eye could actually be the blood that is low in oxygen that’s circulating that area. Our veins and capillaries are so close to the surface of the skin when it comes to our eyes that it’s why there’ that darkness under there. A great way to help this is by soaking your under eyes with tea bags. This may sound weird but it can work! When you apply cold tea bags to your eyes, this can improve their appearance and even stimulate blood circulation. The caffeine and antioxidants will make sure that your eyes look amazing!


Genetic have a way of running a lot of how our body works these days. This is why its number three on our list. If your parents have dark eye circles then you’re more likely t get them too. Sadly, there isn’t much that can be done to fix these except apply some concealer under your eyes and call it a day. It’s said that Latin, African, and indigenous people are more likely to experience darkness under their eyes as well.


For some people, dark circles are temporary and can be fixed at home, for others it’s more difficult. There are many types of medications and treatments these days that are used to help with under eye circles. All you have to do is find the right one for you! At YMD we offer many services to bring back the youth in your eyes. One of them is laser skin resurfacing. It’s a great way to tighten skin, which can help with dark circles.
