Beauty Tip of the Week: Under eye Circles!

Hey guys!

Undereye circles are a pesky thing to deal with so I decided to share my favorite tips for dealing with them!

If your under eye dark circles are caused because of enlarged blood vessels, double up on pillows at night to stop blood from building up under your eyes.

If you wake up to dark cirlces apply a cold compress for about five minutes to constrict the blood vessels. This will make them less noticeable.

To avoid dark cirlces you need a healthy dose of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K iron and folic acid. So make sure you are eating tons of citrus fruits, berries, green leafy veggies,nuts, whole grains, avocado, seafood, beef, cheese, green tea etc. and do away with processed and greasy foods.

Lack of sleep can make your skin appear paler which makes blood vessels more visible through the skin, giving the appearance of bluish or dark circles. So make sure that you are getting in at least 7-8 hours of good sleep!

Water is also super important when it come to keeping dark circles away! Dehydration can cause the blood vessels under the eyes to become swollen thus causing dark circles, so make sure you drink enough water (8 glasses at least).

Natural remedies:

* Cool cucumber slices,

* cotton ball dipped in potato juice,

* crushed mint leaves,

* teaspoon of tomato and lime juice,

* A bit of castor oil left overnight

* cool teabags to relieve stressed eyes

And when there is nothing else to be done conceal them!

For quick camouflage apply light eye cream or gel to the area and let it sink in for a few minutes. Now pat on a creamy concealer that is one tone lighter than your skin tone. Top it of with a layer of loose powder, which helps prevent makeup from caking in creases.

Hope this was Helpful!
