You have done your make-up and your hair carefully, you have taken out a top that suits your complexion, but nothing helps, you still look bad! The cause ? Those dark circles and bags under your eyes that just don't seem to want to leave you. Why do we have dark circles and puffiness? How to get rid of it? Here are our tips.
When it comes to dark circles and bags under the eyes, we are not equal. Indeed, several factors can contribute to the appearance of dark circles and puffiness:
Concretely, dark circles form when the microcirculation is not sufficient. Blood and lymph then stagnate under the eye. Since the skin there is very thin (between 5 to 10 times thinner than the rest of the face), these liquids appear by transparency. In some people, the microcirculation is naturally weak, and dark circles are colored almost permanently. In others, dark circles appear depending on the state of health and lifestyle.
As for puffiness, it can be directly linked to dark circles:stagnant liquids create a relief under the skin, which bulges . In other cases, it is simply the skin that sags with skin aging. Under the eye, the thin skin quickly loses its firmness and “falls off” to create light to very pronounced puffiness.
Hygiene of life, anti-fatigue beauty routine, adapted care… there are solutions to get rid of puffiness and dark circles!
To reduce dark circles, you can incorporate targeted treatments into your beauty routine . First, in the morning, cleanse your face for a fresh boost. Then apply your moisturizer, without getting too close to the eyes:in fact, the agents contained in face creams can be aggressive for the eye area, or even migrate into the eye for greasy formulas.
Then apply an eye contour treatment, massaging it in :make small circles with your fingertips, then gently stretch the material outwards, before lightly pinching the skin to activate circulation.
For more efficiency, you can put your eye care in the refrigerator:the cold is very effective in decongesting the eye area. At Veld's, our Eye Magic treatments are specially designed for the thin skin around the eyes, while allowing you to act where you need it most:on dark circles and puffiness, on marked wrinkles, on wrinkles and firmness with a lifting formula.
If your wrinkles are naturally very present and this bothers you on a daily basis, lipofilling techniques or the injection of hyaluronic acid can be performed in specialized practices. These radical solutions work wonderfully, but represent a significant cost, and a risk since they involve surgery.
To reduce bags under the eyes, the application of an eye contour treatment and massage every morning are also indicated. Do not hesitate to really take the time on the massage, because this is what will help to evacuate the liquids in stagnation, at the origin of the bags. Good make-up removal and daily hydration of the area are also essential to prevent the appearance of more marked puffiness:we want to avoid sagging of the area at all costs!
For some people, for whom bags are part of the genetic heritage, plastic surgery can also be an interesting option. Many practices now offer an operation to remove bags without scars, through the lower eyelid. The operation lasts 20 minutes and the results are final. However, you still have to weigh the pros and cons before getting started.
