If you still feel like hibernating because of dark undereye circles, it’s time to discover how our services can help lighten those dark areas. Put the spring back in your step and look ahead to days without dark circles.
What Causes Dark Undereye Circles?
Dark under eye circles are a common result of dehydration and lack of sleep. This explains the dark, puffy under eye you see in the mirror after a night of tossing and turning. Dark circles can also appear from periorbital hyperpigmentation, which is excessive amounts of melanin or natural darker pigment in an area.
The area around our eyes is one of the most delicate places on our bodies. Because of this, it is the first spot to show aging in the ways of lines, bagginess, and — you guessed it — dark circles. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to deal with this common complaint and lighten up the look of your eyes.

DIY Remedies for Dark Circles
Hydration is the secret to fixing almost any problem in our lives, including under eye circles. Keep water intake coming and try adding fruits and vegetables into your diet that also have large amounts of water. Drinking a few glasses of water while snacking on some cucumber during the day may help those dark circles begin to fade.
In addition to this, make sure you get plenty of restful sleep and use dermatologist recommended serums to keep your face look as youthful as possible. When you sleep, your skin is working hard to make new collagen, which helps prevent sagging over time. This means the difference between 5 hours as opposed to 7 hours of restorative sleep could boost your collagen production, enhancing the overall appearance of your skin. Just another reason to tuck in early tonight!
