How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles ?

Many of us are complexed by their dark circles under their eyes.

That's all you see on your face and it stresses you. You're afraid of sleeping badly at night and waking up with even more dark circles. You're afraid of taking selfies because you're scared that your dark circles will show up on pictures.

For some of us it's a real disaster and we want to make them disappear quickly.

What Is Dark Circle ?

Dark circles are defined by a progressive appearance of brown or black pigmentation of the lower eyelid. This is caused by a dysfunction of the blood and lymphatic micro circulation:

The lymph is a fluid used to drain the blood. When it is disturbed, the blood circulation is not well done and stagnates. And because the skin is 4 times thinner around your eyes, it is more visible than elsewhere.

Why Do We Have Dark Circles ?

Dark circles appear mainly because of bad habits and aging:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Tiredness
  • Stress
  • Poor lifestyle (tobacco, alcohol, etc.)
  • Aging of the skin

How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles ? 

By cleaning and re-energizing your eye area:

  • Cleanse and moisturize your eye area with a non-aggressive organic product
  • Rest your eyes by placing cucumber on each eye or a cotton pad soaked in lemon juice
  • Decongest your eyes every morning with a spoon in the refrigerator
  • Do a lymphatic massage

By changing your habits:

  • Lie down every day at the same hour and not too late for a recovery sleep
  • Drink plenty of water to moisturize your skin
  • Replace your coffee with green tea

How To Do A Lymphatic Massage ?

Practicing self-massage is very beneficial but must be done delicately.

With an organic eye contour, massage gently with your index and middle finger. Tap out a circle around your eyes to bring blood flow to the area.

Then make small rounds on your temples with the tips of your fingers to finish.

This massage activates the blood circulation. This will help evacuate waste and reduce dark circles by detoxifying the skin around the eyes.

Stay motivated! 

It looks like you have to do so many things to get rid of dark circle. But trust me you will have amazing results if you stay motivated and are willing to change your lifestyle a little bit.


See you soon!
