We all get bags under our eyes that can be very telling about how much sleep we're getting or not like most cases maybe.
They are caused by the thin layer of skin below your eyes showing the blood vessel more clearly. On average the skin around your eyes is about 0.5mm thick, compared to 2mm thick over the rest of your body. In addition to this, it could also have been caused by hyperpigmentation, the production extra melanin in certain areas of your skin, or genetics.
In most cases, age can also cause dark circles. This is due to the fact that as we age our skin gets thinner, as this happens we lose elastin and collagen gradually. As we lose elastin and collagen, our skin starts to show signs of ageing and dark circles can be amongst those. Due to the fact that the skin is naturally thinner around the eyes, the skin around your eyes gets even thinner and therefore dark circles appear.
Dark circles can be exacerbated by lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep, dehydration or prolonged exposure to UV. All of these can have detrimental effects on the appearance of dark circles. However, if the option of more sleep isn’t on the cards then skincare can be helpful in relieving the appearance of dark circles.
Including hydrating ingredients within your eye creams can be very helpful in making your eyes appear plumper. Ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid has been known for its role as an emollient which draws water from the air around it, which can help the appearance of dark circles. "It has been estimated that hyaluronic acid (HA) can hold up to one thousand times its own weight in water molecules", says Justine Kluk.
