Many people suffer from dark circles under the eyes. They are embarrassing and make you look older than you are. There are lots of ways adults and children can develop these dark circles under their eyes.
Yes, some people have dark circles under their eyes because of lack of sleep or too much alcohol. But those aren’t the only reasons.
Let’s talk about other possible reasons why you have dark circles:-
Additional causes for dark circles under your eyes:
- Lifestyle (Excessive smoking or drinking)
- Fluid retention
- Skin pigmentation abnormalities
- Excessive exposure to the sun
- Mononucleosis ( jaundice)
- Periorbital cellulitis
- Excess salt in the diet
How to Conceal Dark Circles Under The Eyes ?
The least expensive, least painful way to treat periorbital dark circles is to cover them with makeup. Most women are familiar enough with cosmetic products to know what they like and what works. Many men, however, don’t know much about applying cosmetics to their faces. And therefore don’t know how to cover dark under-eye circles.
First, it is important to apply moisturizer before applying cosmetics to the skin. Many cosmetics can dry the skin, which of course can worsen the dark-circles problem.
Next, you should apply foundation make-up to your face. Use a foundation with a matte or semi-matte finish.
Never allow make-up to become “caked on” to your face. This increases the appearance of age to a considerable degree.
Blush can help to conceal the dark circles under your eyes, and powder blush is especially useful because it blends well on top of foundation. But don’t forget, this may not be a good idea if you have dry skin.
Concealer is another particularly useful product for hiding imperfections around the eye. Try to find a concealer that closely matches your skin tone.
It sounds nuts, but red or orange lipsticks can work like a concealer to hide dark circles.
