Discover Our Best Treatment for Your Under Eye Dark circles

Do your eyes sparkle with good health? Do they reflect your inner beauty? Or do they look dull and tired, with dark circles under them?

With hours spent staring at laptop or mobile screens throughout the day, chances are your eyes are looking a little tired. But, worry not! There is no need to panic yet. You have our iconic eye creams and serums to help bring that youthfulness back to your eyes. Kiehl’s gentle skincare products love your skin as much as you do.

Let’s start with finding out why dark circles appear under the eyes.

What causes dark circles under your eyes?

The delicate skin under the eyes is the first to show the signs of aging. Fine lines, dark circles and premature wrinkles make your eyes look tired.

The reasons for dark circles can range from not getting enough sleep, to too much exposure to the blue light of the computer screen. Something as simple as sun exposure can result in dark circles under the eyes.

The following are the most common reasons:

  • Hyperpigmentation or excess melanin production in the under-eye skin
  • Loss of fatty tissue around the eyes
  • Aging
  • Allergic reaction and eye dryness
  • Excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays
  • Dehydrated or excessively dry skin

Genetic, ethnic or hereditary factors can also be the reason for excess melanin production.

Asians have naturally melanin-rich skins, so they get dark circles sooner. Then there is the heredity factor. So, if your ancestors had melanin-rich skin prone to dark circles, you are likely to get the same.

Get a check-up done to rule out medical issues behind this. Iron deficiency leading to anaemia may be the reason. Plus, if you have thyroid or allergy problems, you may need to see your physician to remove dark circles.

Thankfully you can control your exposure to the sun, and also limit the visible signs of aging on your face. Aging happens in its natural course, but signs of premature aging can be minimized with effective skincare products for dark circle removal.

Do dark circles go away?

Yes, dark circles can, and do go away with proper skincare, and with suitable lifestyle changes and sleep modification. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and resting your eyes enough. Apply the time-tested, proven-effective skincare products and anti aging eye creams of Kiehl’s for removing dark circles.

Vitamin C, Licorice, Caffeine are some effective skin lightening and refreshing components. Regular application of Vitamin C is extremely effective in brightening the skin around the eyes. Licorice helps in stimulating collagen production that gives suppleness to the skin. Caffeine is an excellent antioxidant that works effectively to refresh your eye skin.

At Kiehl’s we are constantly researching for potent skincare solutions to meet all your skincare needs. A signature Kiehl’s ingredient is Squalane, a highly-refined botanical lipid, very close in structure to skin lipids. Squalane has been used to help protect the skin’s barrier, and seal in moisture for softer, smoother skin. From our research, we have found Squalane is clinically-demonstrated to:

  • Visibly reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eye area
  • Help improve skin’s firmness and elasticity

Kiehl’s uses plant-based Squalane that is derived from olives or sugar.

What is the best eye cream for dark circles and fine lines?

With age, your skin loses fat and collagen needed to maintain elasticity. The blood vessels beneath your skin become more visible, which causes your under eye skin to darken. Skin moisture levels go down, and your face starts showing fine lines and dark circles.
