I have dark shadows under my eyes and I really hate them. Is there anything I can do to make them look better?
This is one of the most common laments I have from women. I hear it time and time again particularly among my Asian clients because dark circles are more prevalent on darker skin.
But they can also be caused by tiredness and fatigue, age, diet or allergies – and smokers are more prone to dark circles and uneven skin tone than people who don’t smoke.There are ingredients that can help, I promise
Skin brighteners really do work. Vitamin C is a natural brightener as well having anti-inflammatory properties and promoting collagen renewal. Chromabright is also a powerful concealer and reduces melanin production (which is often responsible for uneven skin tone and dark shadows).
Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3, has a lot of benefits for skin. It’s a real multi-tasker – it can help heal acne, reduce inflammation caused by sun damage and even out skin tone.
Hyaluronic acid is also good for plumping the skin and minimising dark shadows.
So which products can make a difference?
We have a dedicated dark circles range of products. Each one is packed full of natural ingredients that help to repair damage, brighten pigmentation and energise the complexion.
City Defence Moisturiser Jas says, “it’s a powerful antioxidant that protects skin from everyday outside stressors. Vitamin C and niacinamide help to get rid of build-up, unblock pores and brighten and lift the complexion.”
Lip and Eye Rescue Jas says, “this is a handbag essential. Its lovely creamy texture reduces puffiness and targets fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C brighten the under eye area and it’s also a fantastic primer for foundation.”
Millionaire Super Nova Jas says, “this is one of my most popular products. It has Chromabright which conceals and brightens – if you use it before Lip and Eye Rescue it kind of turbo charges it! Honestly, you’ll notice the difference.” Even if you can’t get rid of dark shadows completely, you can improve how you look and feel.
