"Oulala Carole, you look so tired!"
The famous phrase nobody wants to hear the day you don’t put on concealer. No matter how hard we try to hide them with makeup, to put cold spoons under our eyes or even cucumbers, dark circles and pockets persist and are our worst enemies. But why do we have them?
The eye area is dotted with a multitude of blood capillaries. With certain factors such as fatigue and stress, the ability of blood capillaries to contract to distribute blood decreases. As a result, the blood stagnates. Due to the thinness of the skin around the eye, the blood can be seen by transparency, which creates blue circles. Dark circles under them are caused by an accumulation of melanin, the pigment of the skin. This phenomenon is more common in people with dark skin.
Like bluish dark circles, fatigue, stress, alcohol and tobacco decrease lymphatic drainage around the eye. The lymphatic system is used to remove toxins and to circulate hormones and nutrients. Thus, water escapes from the lymphatic network and interns under the eyes, creating the pockets as a result. These can also be created by an accumulation of fat under the eyes. This buildup is not necessarily due to poor diet, but rather to the movement of the fat supporting the eyelids under the eyes as we get older.
Now that you understand where dark circles and bags come from, it's easier to figure out how to get rid of them. A good night's sleep may not be enough to make your dark circles go away. Fortunately, our new Multi-action eye contour cream contour is your best ally.
Highly concentrated in active ingredients, it acts as much on signs of aging as on dark circles and bags. It contains extracts of horse chestnut and dates which promote blood microcirculation, thus reducing the appearance of blue circles. It also contains quinoa extract which stimulates the production of collagen while reducing the appearance of puffiness. This new eye contour composed of 97% ingredients of natural origin will restore your radiance without compromising your look (rumor says that cucumbers on the eyes, it's not super sexy…).
Bye bye tired eyes!
