What Causes Dark Circles?

Dark circles around the eye can contribute to a sad, tired or stressed look to the face and they can show up at any age. Dark circles are caused by a multitude of factors, including UV exposure, pollution, hormonal changes, medications and the thinning of the skin and breakdown of collagen and elastin that happens over time. There’s also a genetic component – if other members of your family experience dark circles, there’s a good chance you might too.


How Can I Brighten My Dark Under Eye Circles?

If you experience dark circles, don’t despair. There are clinically proven ingredients that have been shown to help diminish the look of dark circles. A daily use eye cream formulated with these ingredients can contribute to brighter days ahead for your eyes. Look for eye creams that feature any of these rejuvenating ingredients:

Retinol:

a form of Vitamin A that has been shown to enhance skin turnover and diminish signs of skin aging, including smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and diminishing the look of uneven skin tone.

Peptides:

these short chain amino acids serve as building blocks of skin’s natural collagen and elastin and can help visibly plump, lift and firm skin.

Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA):

these gently exfoliating acids, like Gluconolactone, Lactobionic and Maltobionic target skin’s natural hydrating matrix to help cushion and brighten the appearance of undereye skin.


What Is A Good Brightening Eye Cream?
