I don't know why, but within the last month I have been waking up extremely early. When I say early, I mean 4 am or 5 am, which means 5 -6 hours of sleep. Needless to say, I am exhausted and I look tired as well. Since Halloween has not started and I am not masquerading as a living dead creature, I needed some help from the cosmetic department. In an effort to combat dark circles under the eyes, I have been testing Solvaderm's Eyevage, age-defying eye cream, and Solvaderm's skin brightening complex.
Dark circles under the eyes are not just caused by lack of sleep and can also be caused by:
Allergies, be hereditary, due to pigmentation irregularities, rubbing or scratching your eyes and too much sun exposure, which causes your skin to produce more melanin and thinning of the skin, due to a loss of fat and collagen.
- Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
- Contact dermatitis
- Heredity — dark under-eye circles can run in families
- Pigmentation irregularities — these are a particular concern for people of color, especially blacks and Asians
- Rubbing or scratching your eyes
- Sun exposure, which prompts your body to produce more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color
- Thinning skin and loss of fat and collagen — common as you age — can make the reddish-blue blood vessels under your eyes more obvious
Eyevage is a multi-action age-defying cream developed by leading dermatologists to address the varied and complex issues that most commonly affect the mature skin in the eye area. Concentrated anti-aging serum penetrates quickly to improve micro-circulation in the under-eye zone and lighten unsightly dark circles. The advanced firming complex is infused with healing antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to minimize puffiness and render skin better protected from environmental damage and oxidative stress. Ultra-conditioning moisturizers provide intensive skin-softening hydration and work to banish fine lines and wrinkles. Revitalizes and invigorates the entire eye contour to make it appear visibly brighter, captivatingly radiant, and radically younger-looking.
Directions: After washing your face, use a pea-sized amount of Eyevage and dab around each eye, following the orbital bone (eye socket). Apply morning and before bed every day to protect, nourish and maintain hydration.
