Almost everyone has had an encounter with the dreaded bruises under the eyes. Their cause can be diverse ranging from diseases and genetics to an insufficient amount of sleep and lack of vitamins. Unfortunately, just a good night sleep isn’t enough to erase the dark undereye circles.
Here a 4 Ways to Get Rid of the Dark Circles under the Eyes:
Do Not Forget the Sunscreen
Remember, the skin around the eyes is much thinner and weaker than other skin, which makes it more vulnerable to environmental influences. Consequently, it needs more protection than the rest of your face.
In the summer especially make sure your eye cream has a high SPF. Make sure you are protected from both UVA- and UVB-rays, which are equally harmful to the thin skin.
In addition, use sunglasses with UV protection to further protect the area around your eyes.

Do Start Using Retinol
Retinol is excellent, but non-obvious way to fight against dark circles. As you probably know, Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A. As such it helps to accelerate the renewal of cells. It also promotes the production of collagen. All this is especially useful when it comes to prevention and treatment of dark circles.
You can try retinol eye masks that can deliver the vitamin as deeply as possible. Or you can try creams with retinol. Do not forget apply sunscreen after applying products wit retinol.
Try to not overdo it because the too-frequent use can leave you with red, flaky rings.
