YOU CAN GET RID OF DARK CIRCLES UNDER YOUR EYES: TRUE OR FALSE

You’ve woken up to unsightly dark circles under your eyes... Not the best start to your day. But don’t panic, we’ll tell you how to get rid of dark circles for good and wake up looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Here’s the truth about them, and a few myths busted.

LACK OF SLEEP is always what causes dark circles under your eyes

False.

Insomnia, short nights, bad sleep... Fatigue is one of the root causes of dark circles under your eyes, but it’s not the only one. Respiratory problems, poor circulation, high caffeine consumption and stress can also be to blame.

DARK CIRCLES AND BAGS UNDER YOUR EYESARE THE SAME THING

False.

Dark circles and bags under your eyes have different causes. The former are caused by poor circulation leading to an accumulation of blood under the eyes and the distinct bluey/purple hue of the blood vessels affected. Bags, however, are due to fat deposits gathered under the eyelids. Get rid of dark circles under your eyes and puffiness in one step with our Age Perfect Cell Renewal Eye Contour Cream that targets dark circles, crow’s feet, bags under your eyes, puffiness and crepey lids, all at once.

YOU CAN GET RID OF DARK CIRCLES under your eyes with careful cleansing

True.

Cleansing is paramount if you want to preserve a fresh-faced look without unseemly dark circles under your eyes. The idea is to remove impurities that dull the eye contour and allow this fragile are to breathe. If you don’t remove your makeup or cleanse, then even the best eye contour treatments won’t provide the desired effect. The creamy texture of our Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk will remove your makeup and nourish your skin, leaving it silky-smooth.

USING CAFFEINE FOR DARK CIRCLES IS BAD

False.

 Although, we’re not suggesting that you cake your eyes in coffee powder! Opt for an eye contour treatment that’s rich in caffeine (alongside Aloe vera, yeast extract or holly root), as this will stimulate blood flow. Our Eye Defense With Caffeine & Hyaluronic Acid is the perfect treatment to get rid of dark circles under your eyesand prevent premature skin aging. Apply it morning and evening after your usual cream – it will work better on skin that’s well hydrated.

UNDER-EYE CONCEALER IS THE BEST WAY TO CAMOUFLAGE DARK CIRCLES

True.

Providing it’s the right colour, an under-eye concealer can work wonders. Go for a tone that’s half a shade lighter than your foundation. Apply it with your finger, smoothing it along your lash line, working from the inside to the outside corner of your eyes. Then gently tap the areas treated to further blend in the colour. The best way to get rid of dark circles under your eyes? Our new Infallible Full Wear Concealer that provides maximum coverage in just one stroke.
