Do you suffer from dark circles around your eyes? This may feel familiar to many, but knowing how to combat it can be difficult. With many popular skincare products featuring twenty or thirty different ingredients, it’s hard to know what actually works at reducing the darkness and puffiness around the eye area.
What causes dark eye circles?
Dark circles around the eyes can be caused by many things. Although tiredness and a lack of sleep might be thought of as the most obvious reasons, there are other reasons for dark under eye circles. Popular reasons include:
- Lack of sleep
- Thinning of skin under the eyes
- Allergies (such as hayfever)
- Over exposure to sunlight
- Inherited genes
Whatever the cause of your dark circles, did you know that the solution in your skincare could actually be the ingredient caffeine?
Caffeine in skincare
Well known for its stimulant properties when consumed in drinks such as coffee, caffeine is also a very beneficial ingredient in skincare products.
Caffeine can help reduce the look of puffiness and dark circles under the eyes and it can also help to fortify the delicate skin around the eye. The potent blend of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories provided by caffeine tightens and brightens the appearance of the skin, reducing the puffiness and darkness commonly associated with dark circles around the eye area.
