Dark circles are a pressing issue for a lot of people. They can cause your skin to appear older, and the worst part about dark circles? They are hard to get rid of. While fatigue or sleep deprivation seems to be the most common cause of dark circles, there are other causes as well. But luckily, there are measures that one can take to remove or lighten the dark circles like the green tea under eye cream. Wondering how does green tea under eye cream remove dark circles? Let’s find out.
What causes dark circles?
Lack of sleep
Your body is at work even when you are sleeping. When you sleep, your skin produces collagen, which is responsible for maintaining the structure of your skin and promoting new cell growth. An irregular sleep schedule impacts collagen production because of which your skin tends to lose its suppleness. As a result, your skin becomes dull, and the dark tissues underneath become more prominent. Sleep deprivation leads to fluid accumulation, due to which your eye appears fluffy, casting shadows that appear like dark circles.
As you age, your body processes slow down. As such, the production of collagen and elastin decreases as well. As a result, your skin becomes thinner, making the underlying tissues and blood vessels appear more prominently. This causes the skin under your eye to appear darker.
Excessive screen time
Constantly looking at the screen of your digital devices like phones, laptops, and TVs puts pressure on the muscles of your eyes. This strains your eye, causing the nearby blood vessels to enlarge. Consequently, the under eye appears darker.
Overexposure to sun
Prolonged exposure to the sun causes your skin to tan, turning it a shade darker. Your under eye is no exception to this process. It is more prone to skin darkening because of its thinness and delicate nature. The harsh heat also dehydrates your under eye. The skin around your eye lacks natural oil, making it easier to get dehydrated and causing the skin to look dark.
How does green tea under eye cream remove dark circles?
