TIPS & TRICKS
ALWAYS WEAR SPF – the skin underneath your eyes is very thin so its really important you remember to apply SPF to avoid sun-induced hyperpigmentation (and skin cancer too). Just make sure you use a stick formula just incase the runny formula gets in your eyes and causes irritation.
GENTLE MAKEUP REMOVER– Be extra careful when removing your eyeliner and eye makeup, if you rub too hard you can cause inflammation and capillary damage which can both lead to dark circles. Choose a very gentle eye makeup remover and treat your under eye area with care at all times.
BRIGHTEN UP– When buying eye creams look out for brightening ingredients such as kojic acid, licorice, vitamin C and arbutin, these will help brighten up your under eye area and should fade discoloration.
CREAMY CONCEALER – If you need a quick and instant fix to banish your dark circles then of course investing in a decent concealer will definitely do the trick. We recommend going for a creamy formula as they tend to last longer and result in a fuller coverage
