Can Skincare Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2017
Whether you’re tired or have just lost some of the collagen under your eyes, dark circles can make you look deflated. When it comes to treating dark circles under your eyes, you have two main options— other than wearing a bunch of concealers every day. You can either try skin care or get a surgery done by Dr. Kristin Tarbet. But, does skin care work or will you be wasting money on expensive products? Read on to learn more.
Does It Work?
Many of our patients want to know if skin care can get rid of dark circles under your eyes and the answer varies from patient to patient. For instance, if your circles aren’t very deep or dark, then skin care is likely a viable option for you. However, if your circles are extremely deep, then surgery is likely a better alternative. During your initial consultation with Dr. Kristin Tarbet, she will be able to evaluate whether or not skincare will work for you.
What Ingredients Should I Look For?
The skin under and around your eyes is one of the most sensitive parts of your body. So, when you’re shopping for an eye cream, make sure that it is designed for your under eyes— otherwise, it can cause redness and irritation. Eye creams that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid and retinol will help to plump up the skin under your eyes from the inside out— getting rid of the appearance of dark circles in the process.
As an alternative to surgery, eye cream can often be considered a good option to help treat dark circles under your eyes. However, its viability will depend on how severe your circles are and the type of skin you have.
