How to Care for Your Undereyes

Most people have issues with the skin under their eyes, whether they're puffy, dark, dry, or creased. This skin is thinner and more delicate than any other part of your body, meaning they are far more sensitive to internal and external stressors. On top of that, eyes constantly work through the day, from blinking to smiling to staring at screens. 

But how do you tackle these issues? 

Moisturize

Unlike the rest of your skin, your under eyes don't have the oil glands to moisturize the skin naturally. Because of this, they are more prone to dryness. When your skin loses moisture, it loses volume, causing wrinkles to appear. However, as soon as you replace that lost moisture, your skin can plump up and reduce the fine lines' appearance.

Fine Lines

Aside from hydrating moisturizers, you should look for products with active ingredients that "plump up" the under-eye skin. These potent ingredients have been linked to stimulating collagen production:

  • retinol (over-the-counter options)
  • vitamin A derivate

Hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C helps to combat dark circles caused by the sun's UV rays; you'll want to look out for the following ingredients: 

  • Chaga mushroom
  • vitamin C
  • vitamin E
  • niacinamide (vitamin B-3)

Of course, internal factors matter as well. Getting enough sleep, eating your greens, exercising, and shortening your daily screen time may help you see a difference in dark circles.
