Say Goodbye to Tired Eyes – How to Erase Dark Circles

Dr. Farid Mostamand

Most women yearn for the days when their eyes were bright, vivid, and young. However, from aging, stress, and tiredness, dark circles make the eyes appear tired and much older than they really are.

Alas, until recently, there were few products that would do much to resolve this problem. However, an understanding of why dark circles appear has helped researchers develop eye treatments that can reduce the appearance of tired eyes, leaving the eyes appearing brighter and much younger looking.

Why Do Dark Circles Appear Around the Eyes?

There have been many theories circulating about why dark circles appear around the eyes. Some of the most common include:

  • Nasal congestion from allergies
  • Water retention that occurs during sleep
  • Lack of sleep and stress
  • Too much sodium in the diet
  • Smoking

While all of these factors may contribute to dark circles under the eyes, the underlying reason for the condition is blood from the capillaries that leaks into the area, forming bluish-red pigmentation that resembles a bruise.

By understanding this process and the factors that can contribute to the problem, it is easier to prevent dark circles from occurring. Of course, you can also more effectively find the right eye treatments that will reduce your dark circles.

Possible Treatments for Dark Circles

  • Hylexin – Hylexin, developed by Bremenn Research Labs, targets the heart of the problem with dark circles. Hylexin provides the best environment for enzymatic activity so the capillaries stop leaking red blood cells. Clinical trials conducted by Bremenn showed that 72% of the women with serious dark circles that used Hylexin saw visible improvement in their under-eye area. This product is primarily designed for those with severe dark circles, although others may benefit from the formula as well.
  • Kinerase – The well-known skin care company also offers a solution to circles under the eye. Kinerase’s Under Eye Rescue takes a different approach to dark circles by providing a nutrient-rich formula that works for fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the appearance of tired eyes. This Kinerase combination uses peptides, collagen and kinetin to diminish the look of dark circles and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the same time. In addition, Kinerase’s Under Eye Rescue is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, so it can work on this sensitive area quite adeptly.
  • VivierVivier Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Cream packs a powerful nutrient punch with vitamin K and potent antioxidants. When vitamin K is used on a daily basis, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of puffiness, as well as dark circles. In addition, Vivier includes antioxidants in the form of vitamin-C IDS, which reduce fluid buildup under the eyes, and therefore, decrease the look of dark circles. This Vivier combination not only works to reduce the appearance of dark circles, but it will also give the user younger-looking skin by minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkle.

Dark circles are not a desirable characteristic, but there are methods for reducing their appearance. Whether you decide to tackle dark circles by altering enzymatic activity or feed the under-eye area with a powerful punch of vitamins and antioxidants, you can reduce the look of those annoying dark circles once and for all.
