Pigmented dark circles

Pigmented dark circles are mainly caused by two major factors: a) congenital genetic factors, and b) improper habits. Most people with pigmented dark circles are born with natural skin. Because Asians are inherently more likely to precipitate melanin in the upper and lower eyelids, it is easier to have dark circles. However, there are a small number of people who often use their hands to rub their eyes, excessive force removal or forced rubbing and other unhealthy habits that lead to the appearance of pigmented dark circles.

Solution

People with pigmented dark circles need to strengthen the moisturizing and sun protection of their eye skin. Develop the habit of applying eye cream, and appropriate massage to improve the dark circles. If you have make-up, don't pull your eyelids hard when you put on and remove your makeup. In addition to improving daily habits, the use of honey can also eliminate melanin. Pour an appropriate amount of honey onto the cotton pad and gently apply it to your eyes. After 15 minutes, wash it off with fresh water! Once a day, the amino acids in honey can whiten your skin and promote metabolism.

Vascular dark circles

Vascular dark circles are characterized by sub-ocular blood vessels in blue, mostly caused by allergic rhinitis. Our nose and the skin around the eyes are inter-connected, and people with allergic rhinitis are prone to inflammatory substances in the blood vessels, which can cause subcutaneous blood vessels to dilate and cause mild congestion, leading to dark circles.

Structural dark circles

Structured dark circles are actually not real dark circles, it is caused because the skin under the eyes is thin, and the depressions look like the shape of grooves, giving shadows on the fundus of the eyes and giving people a feeling of dark circles. Structured dark circles are fake dark circles created by the loss of collagen and lack of moisturizing.

Although most of the structured dark circles are natural, regular skincare on eyes can also improve and prevents the situation from intensifying. You can enhance moisturization on the eyes to prevent the formation of fine lines and lighten the shadows caused by fine lines.
