Eye contour: a complete guide to reduce dark circles To say goodbye to puffiness, dark circles and tired eyes

Whether it's the consequence of a sleepless night, a period of stress or a simple genetic predisposition, if "how to get rid of dark circles" is your first concern as soon as you wake up in the morning, then you definitely need this guide. Correcting dark circles requires a certain dexterity, as it is necessary to understand the problem that arises in order to better understand how to solve it. In fact, not all dark circles are the same, there are different types of colors and different precautions to solve the problem. In general, it is possible to state that there are two main types: black/blue dark circles, caused by problems related to stagnation of liquids as well as microcirculation - which appear mainly on lighter complexions - and beige/brown dark circles that are caused by pigmentation and are more present on dark complexions. But how to prevent and correct them?

For one thing, getting plenty of sleep is undoubtedly one of the simplest and most effective remedies for dark circles. The ideal would be to sleep at least 6-7 hours a night, but if you can, try to dedicate at least 8 hours: give up on television and smartphones, prefer reading or meditation, or listen to music with your eyes closed, falling asleep will be easier and more relaxing.

Also, drinking water helps the reduction and prevention of dark circles. So: always drink at least two liters of water per day. In addition, once cold and after having squeezed them well, apply two tea bags under the eyes and let them act for 15 minutes, trying to relax the whole face. The result? Less swelling and signs of fatigue.

And if that's not enough, try facial gymnastics: a no-cost and easy-to-implement remedy. We are talking about the movements of the face that allow to attenuate the eyelids under the eyes and to reduce the bags. Before going to bed, with your face removed and well hydrated, here are 3 simple exercises:

1. Close your eyes to leave only a small slit, place your fingers in the corners of the eyes and stretch them slightly towards the temples. Count to 5 and then release. Repeat 3 times.

2. Give small strokes around the eyes with the tip of the index finger. The blows must be light, without exerting much force, and fast enough. You can combine this exercise with the application of an eye contour cream.

3. Relax and close your eyes, now perform movements from top to bottom, with the slowest pace you can. Open your eyes and repeat 5 times.

Finally, even if you are tired in the evening and the desire to remove make-up is below zero, using an specific eye contour product can really make a difference.
