The skin around the eyes is more delicate and fragile than the rest of the body. This is the reason the eye area is the first to exhibit any visible signs of damage.
Here are some of the most common problems encountered by the skin surrounding the eye area and ways to heal the condition.
Under Eye Dark Circles
This is perhaps the most common problem encountered by women across the world. Dark circles under the eyes are a result of proliferation of blood vessels and the thinning of the skin layer.
The delicate skin around the eyes has tiny blood vessels underneath. The red blood cells have to line up in order to get through the small capillaries. While in the waiting stages, these red blood cells get lost and tread into the surrounding skin. In turn, body enzymes break down the red blood cells and their hemoglobin as well. When the hemoglobin is broken down, the cells become blue-black in color and that is what shows on the outside as dark circles under the eyes.
Dark circles can also develop under the eyes because of a lack of sleep, fatigue, excessive eye make-up or skin pigmentation problems.
There are plenty of eye care products available that help to treat under eye dark circles by nurturing the skin and providing it with required doses of nutrients. Here are some popular products you can choose from.
