Whether you have just had rough sleep or you wake up with them every morning, dark circles can make you look tired and aged. It’s important to look bright-eyed and ready for the day, so knowing the tips and tricks to combat dark circles can help you feel more confident walking out the door. But did you know concealer can make dark circles worse?

Concealer Can Make Dark Circles Look Worse

Most people opt to cover up with makeup, but concealer can make dark circles look worse. Below you will find the most effective ways to combat your dark circles.

Dark Circle Treatment

Dark circles require cosmetic intervention as they can impact your self-confidence, which can impact your personal and professional life. Dark circles treatment in Seattle can make a major difference in your daily life. Depending on your unique undereye issues, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that can improve your under eye’s fast. Consider the following cosmetic treatments.

Dermal Fillers:

This is a great solution if the cause of your under eye bags is due to volume loss. The effects of aging come with a decrease in collagen which can result in volume loss. The decrease in collage in combination with the fat loss and thinning skin can make dark circles even more pronounced. Dermal fillers are not permanent so if you don’t like the results they aren’t forever. For those who continue with their dermal filler treatment, they usually last between 3 to 6 months.

Laser Treatment:

If you are looking for a more long-term solution, laser treatment is highly effective in addressing dark circles. Laser skin resurfacing can provide a number of benefits, including skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and improvement in the look of your dark circles. Multiple treatments are necessary to achieve your desired aesthetic, but you can see results in just one treatment. This treatment can last between 3 and 5 years as long as you take good care of your skin.

Eyelid Surgery:

A long-term solution to under-eye issues is eyelid surgery (also referred to as blepharoplasty). Eyelid surgery helps repair droopy eyelids and can improve the look of under-eye bags, fine lines, and wrinkles. The procedure involves removing excess skin, muscle, and fat to give you a more tightened eye area.

Dark Circle Daily Tips

Combatting dark circles is more than just one step so it’s important to take a comprehensive approach. Cosmetic treatment in combination with addressing your dark circles on a daily basis can dramatically enhance your look. Consider the following daily tips in addition to cosmetic treatments.

  • Moisturize: When it comes to dark circles, under-eye bags, and wrinkles, moisturizing is key to creating a canvas where makeup can help cover some of the imperfections. The reason concealer alone cannot address dark circles is that it often creases and makes the issue much worse. Moisturizing and applying color corrector can help minimize the look of dark circles. Depending on your skin tone, experiment with red, pink, yellow, and orange color correctors to see which one works best for you.
  • De-Puff: Your eyes are likely puffy in the morning, which can exacerbate other imperfections under your eyes. Start your morning by de-puffing your eyes. Use a cold compress for 3 to 5 minutes to reduce swelling. Apply a serum or cream containing caffeine to help constrict your blood vessels. This can help you look and feel more refreshed.
  • SPF: SPF should be a non-negotiable on a daily basis. Use at least SPF 30 every morning no matter if you are going outside or not.
