Besides the obvious complaint of demolishing fine lines or acne, if you were to take a poll on the one thing a person would want to change about their skin, getting rid of dark circles would top the list.  Having dark circles, whether minimal or deep discoloration, can be the bane of existence for many people.  So what causes dark under eye circles anyway?  Genetics, poor diet, excessive rubbing and scratching due to allergies, lack of sleep, medications, and so on.

If you’re tired of looking tired, how do you eliminate dark circles?  Of course getting more rest and eating healthier is always recommended.  You can even opt for more permanent solutions with professional laser treatments, but from a beauty product perspective, using products targeted specifically for dark circles can help lessen the appearance of them.

  • Tarte’s Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment is a really good option to try because it’s a vitamin C enriched treatment specifically hydrates and brightens under eye circles.
  • For those who want to lessen dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines, take a gander at Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferlic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum.  Licorice root is the active ingredient to help lesson dark circles in this product.
  • After treating dark circles, conceal with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.  This cult classic concealer is a dual dense cream that can be customized to your satisfaction.  And the plus is that you can use it to anywhere you need coverage.  I like it because it doesn’t settle into fine lines or gets crepey.  Great for someone with deep discoloration.
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is another great option for concealing dark circles.  A drop or two of this liquid concealer provides a suburb medium to full coverage.  Can be used with fingers or a concealer brush.
