Dark Circles, puffiness under eyes - who invited them to the black beauty party? As Black Women, your beauty tops the list when you look at all of your sun kissed hues. No other woman on the planet can compare themselves to you in your natural essence.
You now know and understand just how magnificent you are. You can walk outside your doors with no makeup and have men admiring your natural beauty.
Caring for your skin is like having a beauty party for yourself. You cleanse, tone and moisturize. Some of you will treat yourselves to a serum at night for extra care.
Lately, you’ve noticed uninvited guests, dark circles and puffiness, creeping into the party. Now you’re wondering why they showed up.
Have you been keeping late night hours partying with friends/family? Have you been consuming too much caffeine? Perhaps you’re not drinking enough water. Are you stressed out over your business or job?
The big question no one has considered is: Can your bags and puffiness be hereditary? Say it ain’t so!
You’ve decided that you’ll take another step forward in your beauty regimen. You’re considering natural options for minimizing dark circles and puffiness. Let’s face it, you’re talking about your eye area. The last thing you want is toxic chemicals being applied around your eyes.
Dark circles and puffiness, appear when the skin tissues surrounding your eyes swell and become weakened. Usually, it’s the result of maturing and often fatigue that leads to puffiness under the eyes.
Although dark circles and puffiness may not represent any kind of serious medical condition, they do require utmost care and attention. In order to nourish your skin in the eye region and retain its natural youthful appearance, your product choices will be crucial .
Ingredients will be key to helping you solve this challenge. You’ll want to see things such as:
Micronized 23 karat mineral mica. This helps to fight the harmful effects of the sun by reflecting UV rays.
Organic Marshmallow Extract aids in circulation, diminishing dark circles and puffiness. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.
Organic Shea Butter primarily has saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. You will also find Vitamins A, E, F, and Carotene. Vitamins A and E soothe and hydrate your skin while boosting collagen. Vitamin F contains essential fatty acids which help to protect and heal. Shea butter is an emollient ingredient that is known to be anti-inflammatory.
Murumuru (Amazonian Fruit) Butter is rich in oleic acid which promotes nutrition and moisture retention to your skin.
Organic Jojoba Oil is a pure and natural plant wax that penetrates and moisturizes your skin without leaving any oily residue. It’s the closest oil to your own natural oil produced in your skin.
Soothing Calendula is a medicinal plant that is known for its antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
Seabuckthorn promotes cell tissue regeneration, aiding in the healing of wounds and restoring skin tissue. The constant rubbing of your eyes can cause friction and traumatized skin in need of cell regeneration.
Organic Sunflower Oils quickly penetrate to instantly refresh and encourage suppleness and elasticity. It’s rich in Vitamin A & E, helps condition and moisturize your skin.
Irish Moss Extract is an Algae, chlorophyll-containing organism that provides water binding and antioxidant benefits.
Whether it’s an eye cream or eye serum some, if not all of these ingredients, will make a great product choice.
Growing up you probably heard that white potatoes and cucumbers would work on lightening dark circles. For some of you they will. You will only know if you test it and see. No two complexions are alike.
I’ve also had clients talk about using Preparation H. While it might have worked at the moment, it’s not something I’d advise using.
Moisture is what’s needed. Whatever product or ingredient helps to provide moisture to your eye area, that’s the one you need. You do not need to bathe your eyes with a lot of product. Just use your chosen product sparingly morning and night.
You can ask to remove dark circles and puffiness from your beauty party with a little extra care. Getting six to eight hours of sleep is a good start. Eating leafy greens daily will build your immune system. Your immune system plays an intigant role in the health of your skin.
Exercise to keep your blood flowing. Drink at least half your body’s weight in ounces of water. As long as your dark circles and puffiness challenges are not hereditary, you have a good chance of minimizing them.
