Just how do celebrities grace the red carpets with flawless skin with zero signs of tiredness? How do they manage to have fresh, bright eyes taking into consideration their schedules?
It turns out that even celebrities aren’t immune to dark under-eye circles. A lot of works goes into making sure they’re taken care of before making a public appearance.
If concealer just isn’t cutting it, here are ways you can reduce those unsightly dark circles.
Eye masks to reduce puffiness
Arguably the cheapest, most convenient method. Storing eye masks in your refrigerator will grant a cooling effect which is perfect for bringing down puffiness around your under-eye area. When used regularly, it’ll really help to brighten, and reduce inflammation. I personally love Innisfree’s Eco Science Eye Mask. It feels super hydrating and the coverage for each sheet is just right.
There won’t be a dry eye in the house with this ultra-hydrating, brightening, and toning under-eye therapy. It actually repairs the under-eye’s fragile collagen and elastin networks (fancy talk for the stuff that keeps your skin firm)! Plus, laser toning promotes circulation, while Revitalift micro-injection therapy diminishes dark circles, brightening the under-eyes to shed years off the area.
How is it done?
It’s actually really quick and easy. The original program created at The Sloane Clinic was reputed to be so popular that it spawned a burst of copycats with similar-sounding monikers. “This program alternates gentle lasers and micro-injections to treat dark eye circles, fine lines and sluggish dermal health” says Dr Chua Han Boon, consultant aesthetic doctor at The Sloane Clinic.
Tiny drops of hyaluronic acid are infused into the skin, and distributed evenly throughout the treatment area via a series of microinjections. It’s relatively painless by an anaesthetic cream and the use of a special fine needle.
Gentle creams and serums with Vitamin A or C
Use gentle creams with Vitamin A or C (try Sloane Inc Vitamin A Eye Renewal Cream) at night, and soothing hyaluronic acid (like Sloane Inc Oxygen Eye Serum) in the day to illuminate and revitalize your lids on the regular.
Vitamin C is useful with the production of collagen for skin rejuvenation while Vitamin A helps as an anti-aging agent. Using these products diligently will really help to lighten dark eye circles.
But if all else fails, or you just don’t have the time… just throw on a pair of sunglasses before leaving the house. No one will suspect a thing.
