Let’s try something a little different with this blog. Our clinic focuses on eyes, but today we’re going to talk about eyelids.
Nobody likes having dark circles under their eyes. Eyelid circles can make people look older and they’re tough to remove. Sometimes people get them because of their age or genetics, but there can be external factors as well. These can include exhaustion, eye strain, dehydration, and more.
Some Basic Ways To Manage Dark Circles Under Eyes
- Get more rest! One of the big reasons people get circles is because they’re extremely tired. Sleep will benefit your skin and also help keep you from getting eye strain, which is another common cause of under-eye circles.
- Use over-the-counter creams to moisturize and treat your skin.
- Put a cold compress on your eyes like you’d handle any other inflammation. The ice will help reduce the puffiness and therefore decrease the circles.
- If you need a quick fix before going out on the town, over-the-counter concealers can be helpful.
What To Do With More Difficult Dark Circles Under Eyes
If these basic treatment options don’t work for your under-eye circles, you may need to speak with a dermatologist about some permanent solutions through medical treatments. If your dark circles start swelling more and become more than a cosmetic problem, schedule a doctor appointment as soon as possible to make sure there’s not an underlying problem.
