  • Fix Those Pesky, Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

    Fatigue, genetics, and diet all contribute to every woman’s worst nightmare – dark circles under our eyes. For some of us, even the faintest bit of fatigue results in bags and circles that no amount of concealer can hide from the world. Here at SkinDirect, our esthetician knows how difficult it can be to treat them. That’s why we’ve put together a list of products that are guaranteed to help you look better, feel better, and present a bright, shining face to the world!

    The skin under the eyes is very thin, and blood vessels show through thinner skin very easily. When the blood isn’t oxygenated enough, such as when we are fatigued, it becomes a darker shade of blue or purple closer to the skin. This causes the appearance of dark under eye circles.

    HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Dark Circle Concentrate is the perfect solution for dark circles! The ingredients in this fantastic formula work to increase circulation in the skin nearest the eyes, resulting in significant lightening of dark tissue over time.

    SkinDirect’s personal esthetician also recommends Goldfaden Bright Eyes, which is literally packed with botanicals, antioxidants, soy peptides and vitamin K. These ingredients visibly brighten under eye skin while fighting to prevent recurrent circles.

    Neova Eye Therapy is another fabulous option to correct dark under eye skin. This product not only treats the discoloration, it also treats the puffiness around the delicate eye area to restore youthful looking skin to any age group!

    With these products available from SkinDirect, we can stop caking on the concealer and start fighting those pesky under eye circles from the inside out!

  • Mother’s Day Beauty Gifts

    Cards and flowers are always nice, but this Mother’s day give your mom the gift of beauty and rejuvenation. Every mom is already beautiful, but many skin care products can give her that extra pep her skin needs. She’ll look great and feel great, too.

    To pamper your mom and give her a spa-like feeling, give her an exfoliating facial mask. These masks will help tighten her skin and remove dead skin cells. Before she uses the mask, cut some cucumber slices so she can place them over her eyes. The water inside cucumbers will cool and soothe the eyes and also help control any puffiness she might have. Prepare a comfortable and relaxing environment for her with soft music playing in the background. This will help relax her and add to the spa-like atmosphere.

    If cucumbers aren’t enough for her eyes, try an anti-aging eye cream. These creams help reduce dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. They tighten the area around the eyes, making loose skin firmer. Make her favorite blend of tea to sip on while she uses the eye cream. It’ll instantly relax her.

    For products she can use any time, give her the power of Vitamin C. This is a very powerful antioxidant that can also increase collagen production. Products containing vitamin C are great for her skin’s overall health and appearance. It will rejuvenate her skin, leaving it beautiful and radiant.

    Every mom deserves to be pampered and these gift ideas are sure to do the trick.

  • Under-Eye Circles and Puffiness

    Many women, and even men, get them- those annoying dark circles or bags underneath your eyes. They’re caused from veins carrying blue (deoxygenated) blood beneath the surface of the skin and can be very irritating. Allergies and fatigue can cause the skin underneath the eyes to look pale, making dark circles more noticeable. A lack of vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin K or iron, in the diet may also be to blame, leading to discoloration.

    Whether you had a long night, didn’t get enough sleep, or are under a lot of stress, those annoying things keep coming back. The quickest way to hide these dark circles is by using concealer. But be careful when choosing one because the biggest mistake women make is using a concealer that is too light for their skin. Stick to gold tones that match your skin because the gold will counter-act the blue’ish tones. Make sure to blend the concealer around your entire eye, not just underneath. This makes your entire eye look naturally bright and you won’t have one bright block underneath your eye.

    Concealer can go a long way, masking the discoloration temporarily, but what about when the concealer wears off? You can look into buying special under-eye products that help get rid of these circles so you can skip the concealer entirely.

    If you are going to buy an under-eye treatment, make sure to read up on the special ingredients these serums and creams use. Not all of them will be the right one for you and your eyes. If you have sensitive skin, go for a milder and gentler formula so you won’t irritate your skin. Depending on the severity of your dark circles, different products have different strengths so make sure to get the right one for your condition.

    Always try to get at least 7 hours of sleep and eat well balanced meals throughout the day because the most important step you can take to treat your dark circles and puffiness is to cleanse your body on the inside first.
