What causes dark circles under the eyes?

The dark circles are mainly due to poor blood circulation and disrupted lymphatic tissue. Lymphs drain and circulate blood and nourish tissues. Pigments gathered under the skin are no longer properly eliminated because the lymphatic system is disrupted. blue, brown or violet appearance under the eyes. Dark circles are easily noticeable because the layer of skin under the eyes is much thinner than the epidermis on the rest of the body.

The appearance of dark circles is often associated with extreme fatigue. However, this is far from the truth. We have come to realize that dark circles are the result of many other factors (including the hereditary factor). Dark circles can also result from a psychological state: stress or anxiety, simply our lifestyle and, of course, the skin aging. The colour skin type does not really affect the appearance of dark circles: very fair skin types have dark circles easily, as do dark and black skin types.

What are the different types of dark circles?

There are several types of dark circlesthat are more or less easy to treat.

  • Hollow circles: Hollow circles, as the name suggests, are circles that deepen with age. They can be caused by a melting of the fat of the eyelid or by aging. The dark circles and cheeks are the first places to lose volume.
  • Dark circles: Unlike hollow circles, dark circles under the eye are the result of an accumulation of fat, sometimes associated with excess skin.
  • Dark circles or brown circles: they are recognized by the appearance of pigmented spots on the lower eyelid, caused by an accumulation or high concentration of melanin. 
  • Black and blue circles: These are vascular circles that are the result of a dysfunction of the blood and lymphatic circulation. This dysfunction leads to the accumulation of blood pigments under the lower eyelid and this is when the dark circles appear. Age or hormones can also be the cause. By affecting microcirculation, or even slowing it down, these factors create a breeding ground for dark circles.

#seo: cream to conceal dark circles

To conceal dark circles dark circles under the eyesTo conceal dark circles under the eyes, it is recommended to use a targeted eye care product as regularly as possible (once or twice a day).

For eyes in search of comfort, soothing and radiance, we recommend the Eye Contour Balm Oh My Cream Skincare which is even suitable for very sensitive eye contours.

Combine this treatment with an ultra effective beauty tool, such as the Decongestant Roll-On Herbivore. This massage tool helps decongest puffiness, activate circulation and improve skin elasticity. Using the small roller, start at the inner corner of the eye and roll along the eye socket to the temple in one go, applying increasing pressure to the temple.

The Gua sha Odacité are just as effective and provide a lifting and detoxifying action. They have the advantage of working more deeply than a roll-on, and thanks to their specific angles, thicknesses and curves, they adapt precisely to the morphology of each face. Used around the eyes, they help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
