Dark under eye circles are a common problem for most skin types. Sometimes it seems that no matter how much sleep we get, we still look tired and aged because of dark circles!

Why do we get dark under eye circles?

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest on the body. This thin skin is more susceptible to environmental abuse and sun exposure, and is one of the first places signs of ageing such as crows’ feet, puffiness and dark circles occur.  This skin is also prone to dryness, which can make these signs of aging more visible.

Dark circles under the eyes are the result of this, as well factors like genetics, whether your skin is fair, and if you have naturally thin skin.

How to get rid of dark circles under eyes

ZO Medical Hydrafirm Eye Brightening Repair Crème has been specially formulated to help treat signs of ageing around the eyes, such as dark under eye circles.  It contains the skin brightening Vitamin C, which is used to treat the pigmentations on the area. It also works to increase collagen production, to combat thin skin around the eyes. This can reduce the appearance of dark circles due to underlying blood vessels.

Vitamin A is also an active ingredient, which combined with biomimetic proteins encourages natural collagen production and skin elasticity. And the exclusive blend of bioengineered plant stem cells give the skin antioxidants and manage inflammation to protect your skin from any further signs of ageing.

Finally, it’s packed with caffeine, enzymatic vasodilators and coenzyme A. These work to reduce the signs of puffiness and the appearance of dark circles.

The powerful combination of ingredients in Hydrafirm work together to rapidly improve the skin around your eyes. Use only a pea size amount for the entire under eye area in the morning and evening – and blend in gently with fingertips. This product absorbs quickly and can be used year round.

To help avoid further damage to the eyes, be gentle with your eyes. Never pull, tug or rub the skin as it is so delicate. And of course always wear sun protection!
