Understanding and addressing under-eye care

Today we will understand what causes under-eye issues like circles, darkness, and wrinkles. Also, we will discuss how you can minimize these concerns. 

Eyes are a reflection of one’s soul. 

Eyes are the first things you notice when you look at someone. 

However, you are also drawn immediately to any dark shadow under the eyes. We would all agree that the face looks healthier and fresher with no under eye circles. Same way, someone who has under eye circles, may appear tired even after being well rested. This is why, just like any other skin care routine, and under-eye area also needs care. 

What are the different kinds of under-eye concerns?

There are multiple under-eye concerns that one can face. They are as follows: 

  • Dark Circles

Research shows that the main causes for dark circles are genetics and skin tone. Dark circles under the eyes may look purple or blue, to dark brown or black, depending on skin color. These circles are rarely a cause for concern, but people may wish to reduce their appearance for cosmetic reasons.

Dark circles are more common in people with darker skin tones, and they affect people of color more than white people. This risk factor is thought to be due to changes in pigmentation. 

Dark circles can be caused by:

  • Fatigue and exhaustion
  • Salt/sodium in your diet
  • Tobacco
  • Hereditary 
  • Eye bags

Loss of fatty tissue and thinning of the skin around the eyes are part of the aging process and can lead to eye bags. These alterations can make eyes appear more defined in older adults. You may also notice eye bags appearing after a late night or due to crying.  

Additionally, for some individuals, the eye bags appear puffy and swollen. For others, they are simply rolls of excess skin beneath the eyes. Typically, under-eye bags are nothing to be concerned about, but they can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

Eye Bags can be caused by:

  • Not removing eye makeup properly
  • Over exposure to the sun
  • Ageing
  • Sleep issues
  • Eye wrinkles 

Under eye wrinkles, or the term Crow’s feet is used to describe the fine lines and wrinkles found at the outer corners of your eyes. They are a natural part of the aging process and are harmless. As people get older, the skin loses its ability to renew itself. The skin in the area under the eyes is particularly susceptible to the aging process because it is thin. As a result, it is common to develop wrinkles under the eyes over time.

Eye wrinkles can be caused by:

  • Over rubbing of eyes
  • Exposure to sun
  • Not moisturizing 
  • Stress

How To Eliminate Under Eye Concerns

There is no one or permanent fix for under eye concerns. However, to reduce the use of cosmetics to cover the concerns, these are some recommendations on improving overall health and to reduce under eye concerns:

  • Improve your diet: Try to lower your salt intake. This will help reduce the puffiness under your eyes, and it’s better for your heart.
  • Address allergies/sinus problems: Taking proper medicinal treatment for allergies will go a long way toward reducing swelling in your sinuses and beneath your eyes. 
  • Stop smoking: It’s simple, but most efficient for reducing eye and health concerns. 
  • Sleep well: Get the proper amount of sleep for your age. Your entire body may feel better as a result. 
  • Wash your face: Cleanse your face before bed and remove any makeup.
  • Reduce sun exposure: Wearing sunglasses and a hat to help protect the skin beneath your eyes.
  • Drink lots of water. It will make a noticeable difference in the appearance of under-eye bags.
