    Re: Best cream to get away from dark circles

    Try branded creams like Ponds or Garnier. They are readily available in the market. Most of them use that but I would suggest you to check out the website of skin care clinics like Kaya Skin Clinic. They don’t just recommend products unless their dermatologist recommends them. Their products and services are good and are definitely more effective than these branded products. You can check out their products and services online and book an appointment from there. See what suits you best and hope you get rid of your dark circles soon.

    Re: Best cream to get away from dark circles

    Dark circles under the eyes tend to age your appearance more than wrinkles or grey hair.However, you can still minimize the appearance of dark circles under your eyes and in some cases remove them completely.

    Get your beauty sleep. Itís not entirely clear why inadequate sleep results in dark circles under the eyes, but lack of sleep tends to cause the skin to become paler (thus increasing the appearance of darkness under the eyes), and reduces circulation.Itís also believed that too little time lying down is a cause in itself. Before going to bed at night, remove all eye makeup. If you don't do so, when you get older, your eyes can look much more tired on a daily basis.




    • Determine how much sleep you need (itís usually 7-9 hours per night, but varies for different people at different times throughout their lives). Try to get that amount regularly for a couple of weeks to see if that helps.
    • Alcohol and drugs can adversely affect the quality of your sleep. Abstain from these products or use them only in moderation for best results.
    • Get adequate vitamins that assist sleep. A lack of sleep, coupled with poor vitamin absorption tends to reduce adrenal function. The less adrenal function you have, the less B6 you tend to absorb. The less B6 you absorb, the less your adrenal glands function and you end up in a vicious circle. Sleep, regular vitamins (where needed), good calcium/magnesium support in the form of eating a lot of greens (which are higher in calcium and magnesium than dairy products are) and a good mineral supplement restores adrenal function.
    • Allergies are a common cause of skin discoloration under the eyes. If an allergy is the root of your problem, treat the allergy. Seasonal allergy problems such as the hay fever can frequently be effectively treated with over-the-counter and prescription medications.
    • For other allergies, the best course of action is usually avoidance. If your dark circles or puffiness are constant, you may have an undetected food allergy or an allergy to a chemical in your home or workplace. Talk to a dermatologist for help determining what you may be allergic to. People with allergies also tend again to be deficient in B6, folic acid and B12 on occasion. Taking a multivitamin may also help
    • Another common allergy that causes dark circles is gluten intolerance, which is an allergy to wheat flour in particular. More severely, you could have celiac disease. To test for celiac disease, have blood tests performed by your doctor. It's important to remember that you can be gluten intolerant, and not have celiac disease.

    Fix nasal congestion. A blocked nose can result in dark circles under your eyes because the veins that drain from your eyes to your nose are darkened and dilated.

    Eat well and Drink lot of water. A whole host of cosmetic problems can be attributed to vitamin deficiencies. Dark circles and puffiness are often attributed to lack of vitamin K or inadequate antioxidants. Also, a deficiency in B12 (usually anemia-related) can result in dark circles.

    • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially cabbage, spinach, and other leafy green vegetables. Take a daily vitamin supplement if necessary. Get adequate fluids to improve circulation.
    • Excess salt causes the body to retain water in unusual places, and this can result in puffiness under the eyes. Too much salt can also impair your circulation and cause the blood vessels under the skin to appear bluer.

    Examine your smoking habit and quit. Smoking causes vascular (blood vessel) problems that can not only threaten your life, but also make your blood vessels appear more prominent and bluer.
    Relaxing might help remove sources of stress and anxiety that are preventing you from sleeping, eating and resting properly. In turn, relaxing enough will help your eye skin to improve as you feel less stressed and more at ease. Skin tends to reflect a whole host of emotional and physical ailments, so don't dismiss the need to relax lightly.
    Accept what you can't change. There are some causes to under-eye circles you can't do much to reverse, unfortunately. These include:


    • Pigmentation irregularities. These can cause darker circles under the eyes.
    • Sun exposure. This can increase melanin production.
    • Thinning from age. Aging thins the skin, making veins and vessels more obvious as your fat and collagen depletes over time.
    • Heredity. Establish whether or not this condition runs in your family, as under-eye dark circles are believed to frequently be hereditary.This doesnít mean that you canít do anything about the conditions, but you should be prepared for minimal success when trying to get rid of them.
    • Your facial features. Dark circles may be as simple as shadows being thrown by your own features. There isn't much you can do change this other than careful use of cosmetics.


    Natural Remedies

    Use cucumber slices. Cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes, providing a fast "pick-me-up" for tired and puffy eyes. Place a slice over each eye, extending over the darkened area. Do this daily, coupled with lying down for 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes closed.

    Apply cool tea bags or an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth to your eyes daily. The tannin in tea bags reduces swelling and discoloration. Lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave the cool and damp caffeinated tea bags over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes closed. You can refrigerate them overnight so they will be ready in the morning.

    Make a saline solution. Add 2 cups water with a 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and/or a half tea-spoon of baking soda in one of your nostrils. Have your head tilted to the side so that the water comes out the other nostril. It's best used when you're experiencing nasal congestion.

    Use a potato. Place one uncooked potato into a liquidizer and liquidize the whole potato. Scoop out and place the pureed potato on your closed eyes .Keep it there for 30 minutes, lying on your back. Wash it off with warm water. This method works well for some people.

    Use a frozen spoon. Put a spoon in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Take it out and cover the circles with it. Hold it there until the spoon is warm again.

    Cosmetic Solutions

    Apply an eye cream containing vitamin K and retinol. Dark circles may be caused by a deficiency of vitamin K. Regardless of the cause, however, skin creams containing these two ingredients reduce puffiness and discoloration significantly in many people. Long-term daily use seems to have the greatest effect.

    Use an under-eye cream. Use a concealer that will camouflage the dark under-eye circles. It's important to use a concealer that matches your undertone (namely, yellow and peach (for bluish circles). After applying the concealer, set it with a light dusting of translucent powder.


    Have a skin patch test. Before using cosmetics, have a try on skin patch test first. Cease using anything that irritates your skin, causes rashes, or makes your eyes sore or watery.

    Tips



    • Drink water. Drinking water always helps, but when it comes to blackness under the eye it really does work. It also helps you relax because it is a soothing drink.
    • Focus directly on the under-eye skin. Keep in mind that any direct contact with your under-eye skin must be gentle, as this is the most delicate skin on your body.
    • Have a healthy diet enriched with vitamins C,D and E.
    • Make sure you don't drink too many fluids before bedtime. This can contribute/add to bags under your eyes.



    • Avoid rubbing your eyes. Usually rubbing of the eyes is brought on by allergies, but not always. It can also be an anxious habit or a reflex action. Regardless of the reason, it's best to stop doing it because the rubbing irritates the skin and can break the tiny capillaries underneath, causing both puffiness and discoloration.
    • Wear dark sunglasses to protect your skin from melanin changes.

    Viji's Tea Bag idea is really good but prefer it with green tea bags. Along with it use Garnier eye roll on, it also helps.

    Dont go for cream. Use natural remedies. Apply rose water for 10 minutes to remove dark circles. Viji tea bag idea also really works.
