Before rushing to buy the most advertised under eye cream to treat your recently developed dark circles, just check your kitchen once. All essential items which can naturally erase your eye bags as well as dark circles are there without the taxing of side effects. Here are a few simple guidelines and tips to consider:
1. Eye bags and dark circles are different
Swellings of under eyes are called eye bags. Dark circles do not come with swelling. Though they both develop due to limitations of proper rest, care and nutrition, they are different from each other in terms of their characteristics.
2. Eye bags: One fine morning
And the morning does not remain fine any more. But there is nothing to worry about. Eye bags can form if you cry all night long or even eat too much salt! Actually eye bags denote fluid accumulation. A general principle says that the fluid moves to places where there is more salt. So, to put it in simpler words, there can be many causes to puffy eyes. Cold and infection are other such reasons.
3. Dark circles develop gradually
Unlike, puffy eyes, dark circles develop over a period of time. And though health reasons do not feature among the causes of puffy eyes, dark circles are developed from inadequate nutrition and sleep-deprivation. Stress, such as balancing the demands of work and home responsibilities can be one example. The skin under our eyes is very delicate and it does not have any oil glands. Hence, it reflects signs of weakness, tiredness as well as aging faster than our facial skin.
