Dark Circles

The best bet for dark circles under the eyes could be an anti-congestion nasal spray. Seriously. This isn’t one of those hemorrhoid cream-type cures, there is a real medical evidence here. The primary cause of dark circles is a blocked nose. According to the Mayo Clinic, when your nose is congested, veins that usually drain from your eyes into your nose become widened (dilated) and darker. Doctors often regard dark circles as an indication of allergies.

Anyway while you try to figure out the best way to free flow nasal passages, there are some creams that may help diminish the appearance (but not the underlying cause). There are also some ingredients to avoid. Actually hemorrhoid cream will help a bit because its purpose in life is to constrict swollen blood vessels. But it smells disgusting, usually contains petrolatum and is way too harsh for under-eye skin. Retinol users beware. Over use can cause the skin tissue to become ‘vascular’ and over stimulate the capillaries.

Vitamin C and or K will help. However, both of these can be drying and should be combined with good moisturizing ingredients. A good eye cream that helps to build up collagen – under-eye skin is particularly thin – is a good idea.  check out www.arbonne.com/re9advanced
