Dark circles-

Dark under-eye circles are due to the oxidizing of haemoglobin which begins in the capillaries, around the delicate skin around the eyes. It is quite possible that capillaries all over one’s body are leaking small amounts of blood all the time. But the reason dark under-eye circles are so apparent is that the skin around the eyes is some of the thinnest, most delicate skin of the body. The capillaries are much closer to the surface of the skin there. 

How dark circles can be prevented-

It always helps to treat the reason which causes the problem. Correction of one’s lifestyle patterns, if that is the reason, holds prime importance. Many a times it is because of lifestyle abuse-like late-nights, erratic working hours, using computer for long hours, disturbed sleep patterns and most importantly stress. Lack of sleep contributes to stress hormones like cortisol being increased, a known cause of health problems and swelling under the eyes causing dark circles. Consciously making attempts to reduce stress or the contributory components also contributes to better sleep. Thus, relaxation should be increased not only for its own sake, but as a direct attempt to reduce stress so that more restful sleep follows and thereby results in lessening of the dark circles.

Besides that, one can use ointments rich in Kojic acid, lactic acid, arbutin at night and layer it with a good amount of moisturizer. The use of sunscreen regularly and intake of supplements of Vitamin C and antioxidants are a must.

Recommended Treatments –

There are various AHA peels which are effective in rejuvenating skin around the eyes by exfoliating damaged upper layers of skin to reveal new, healthier skin and lessening the dark circles. Laser resurfacing and intense pulse light treatments are other good options as they can reduce or eliminate the appearance of prominent veins and capillaries. These treatments have to be repeated every 4- 6 weeks to maintain the results.

Recommended Products-

A number of creams are available in the market which can lighten the dark circles.  They include lightening agent like Vitamin C, kojic acid, arbutin, azelic acid.  Treat the skin while sleeping by applications of these agents overnight . Amongst the homemade treatments one should try natural eye refreshers like a chilled slice of cucumber kept for around 10 to 15 minutes or a raw potato slice cooled in a refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes does help when done on regular basis. Dip cotton balls in rose water and place it on your eyes for 10-15 minutes every day.

Moisturising the under eye area is the most important thing for eye care. Likewise, using lubricated non medicated eye drops ensure that the eyes are always fresh and do not feel tired.

Know Your Skin and choose what suits you

*Product Note*

Beautiful skin is every woman’s dream. We all want to stay young and beautiful at all times. But maintaining the glow of beautiful skin in modern day’s fast paced world is difficult due to everyone’s busy lifestyle. Hence we often end up looking after the most important part that signifies beauty – the face. We thus tend to ignore our body needs and gradually notice dry and damaged skin on our hands and feet. It is thus always important to use a body lotion all through the year to maintain soft, smooth and radiant skin not only on your face, but in all parts of the body.
To choose the right body lotion, the first step is to know your skin type and choose the option that suits you. Addressing specific needs of nourishment and indulgence, Dove’s range of body lotions are available in three variants for dry, normal and normal to oily skin. Its unique deep care complex nourishes your skin even to the deepest layers making it soft and smooth from the outside and healthy from the inside.

 
Dry and Dull Skin:

Dove Essential Nourishment is the purest exemplification of Nourishment and it best for normal-dry skin. This body lotion’s body milk not only nurtures the skin’s surface, but also works deep down for long lasting beautifully soft & smooth skin. It is extremely easy to spread with deeply moisturized feel but not sticky or oily. Being clinically tested no other lotion nourishes deeper for long lasting soft smooth skin than this variant.

Shea butter is like a gift to the women’s dull skin body as it turns almost any dry skin patch into a smooth and supple surface. Dove Indulgent Nourishment is a rich combination of nourishing cream and Shea butter extracts that leaves the skin feeling beautifully pampered and tenderly scented. The indulgent variant employs an unique blend of ingredients precisely designed to allow the delivery of the highest levels of skin nourishment within the range but without any skin negatives such as oily or greasy skin after-feel. This variant is for the normal skin type and helps in making the skin glow at all times.

Introducing Lakmé Youth Infinity Night Crème

It is said that your skin absorbs all the essential nutrients when you are asleep; hence using a night cream is advisable before you go off to bed as it helps replenish your skin. A night crème used daily starting in your 20s will help you keep the youthful properties your skin now has. 

Recommended by salon experts, Lakmé Youth Infinity range gives you freedom from dullness and ensures skin stays young. It is your daily dose of expert salon care – that helps firm your skin while brightening it. Enveloping your skin, Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Night Crème works harmoniously with its night repair action giving you bright and tight, younger looking skin as if you just stepped out of a salon
