We hate to break it to you, but most of us get dark circles under our eyes sooner or later. Sometimes they'll go away with a little beauty sleep. Other times, you may need a little help to bring the brightness back to your eyes. Some great eye creams are available that can remove dark circles and tighten up loose skin and bags under the eyes.
What causes dark circles under eyes?
There are other factors which can also come into play. For example, oversleeping or not sleeping enough can give you dark circles under your eyes or if you don't drink enough fluid and become dehydrated, you may develop dark circles. You might also find discoloration occurring under your eyes if you get too much sun. Of course, aging is apt to cause dark circles and loose skin under the eyes. Finally, genetics play a significant role in the appearance of dark circles. Long story short, it sounds like almost anything can give you dark circles. Not to worry, we have different skincare options for you so you don’t have to change your lifestyle. I mean, who has the time to get 7-9 hours of sleep, drink 8+ glasses of water and have an elaborate skincare routine?!
How to get rid of dark circles under eyes?
If you have time, a relaxing eye mask can help. Simply drinking a glass or two of water may resolve the issue. Lying down with a slice of cucumber over each eye or a cold compress can help in many cases. If you're still looking run-down after this treatment, dotting a little concealer under your eyes before putting on your makeup will often hide the discoloration completely. When we’re really struggling we turn to Karen Yeung’s tips.
If dark circles keep coming back, it's time to break out the big guns. Invest in an eye cream for dark circles -- one that's formulated for this specific issue. The best eye cream for dark circles will depend on your skin type and your particular needs.

Dark Circles + Time = Look Into My Eyes Retinol & Propolis Eye Mask
If you really want to tackle dark circles once and for all, we need to things: time and Retinol.
The best eye cream ingredient for tackling dark circles under eyes and loose skin due to aging is one containing retinol. Try Look Into My Eyes - Retinol and Propolis Eye Mask, a regenerating and anti-aging eye mask with retinol and bee propolis. You can use it as an undereye mask or apply as a regular night cream. Either way, with regular use, you’ll feel confident when other people look you in the eyes.
Remember, dark shadows around your eyes can be a sign that your health isn't as great as it could be. Try to balance out your lifestyle. Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep when you can, drink plenty of water, and eat a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoiding alcohol and tobacco will help improve your complexion too. Smiling always improves your overall complexion. 😉
