Two skincare posts in one week! My, my. Well, today is a special post as I’ve been getting a few questions about treatments for dark undereye circles. Those pesky buggers can make you look tired and older, even when you’re young and active, so I definitely understand why I get so many questions about them.
The reason why we even get dark circles under our eyes is rather simple: the skin surrounding the eye is extremely delicate. As we age, the skin there loses its natural suppleness and the hollow bone there can create a shadow. There may be excess fluid near the eye, creating a look of puffiness and dark colour. Also, women of colour may have excess pigment there that creates dark circles.
But a treatment is here, it’s one I’ve used for quite some time and it works! It’s a simple treatment using olive oil, a product that naturally lightens skin, in combination with firm pressure and massage.
