  • Sun Exposure
  • Ageing

If the dark circles are from allergies, getting on an appropriate preventative plan with your physician’s guidance is essential. Medications such as Claritin and Benadryl can help alleviate some of the swelling that comes along with seasonal or environmental allergies, but again always seek a medical professional before beginning a treatment. Using indoor air purifiers can also help lessen the severity of your allergies which will in turn decrease the puffiness and dark circles around your beautiful eyes!

Not getting enough zzz’s is a huge factor in under-eye circles. Remember to try put yourself first and make minor adjustments to your schedule each day. Get to sleep 10 minutes earlier every day until you are getting a good 6-8 hours of sleep every night will help. There are a variety of skin creams that help to lessen the look of dark circles. Applying them before bed and first thing in the morning is essential to a good regimen.

Finding products that don’t cause skin irritation can be hard. Many cosmetics can include additives and irritants that will leave your skin and under eyes looking tired and inflamed. Doing your research to find non-allergenic and non-comedogenic products is going to be worth your time. Your skin will thank you for spending a little extra time on finding the best products. Call us at Reset Med Spa for a consultation and review of the products we carry that will be a proper fit for your skin.

Iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. This can also be a cause of dark under eye circles. It is important to have an annual visit with your primary care physician to screen for this common problem. Having a well-balanced diet will help prevent acquiring vitamin deficiencies. A diet high in green leafy vegetables, red meats, dried fruit and nuts can help lessen your risks of iron deficiency anemia.
