How to combat tired-looking eyes
Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it feels impossible to escape those pesky tired-looking eyes. I know that no matter how much sleep I manage to get, I can still wake up looking and feeling a little deflated.
Why do I have tired-looking eyes?
The reason behind tired-looking eyes is something that baffles many people, especially when you know you’re getting more than enough sleep. A lack of sleep tends to be something that can make your existing symptoms worse rather than something that causes dark circles in the first place.
It’s crucial to remember that the skin around your eyes is thinner than anywhere else on your body. This makes it extremely delicate, which is why it tends to age a lot sooner, along with other parts of your face such as your lips. Your eyes are faced with harsh extrinsic ageing factors on a daily basis, such as UV damage and air pollution. Over time, collagen and elastin fibres – two of the fundamental building blocks for healthy, youthful skin – will diminish, and fine lines and wrinkles will start to appear.
Another thing to consider is the general anatomy and structure of your face. Your eyes may be set a bit further back, which can create a slightly sunken look, especially beneath the eyes.
This can be worsened by a loss of soft tissue in the cheeks.
Dark circles can be a combination of shadows created by sunken tear troughs or puffy eyelids, along with dilated blood vessels.
If fine lines are the main source of your concerns, there are several wrinkle-relaxing treatments available. I have carefully selected injectables that are proven to be both safe and effective for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
They work by relaxing overactive muscles whilst maintaining natural expression for a more settled, smoother appearance for up to 12 weeks.
