Clarins Singapore: Skincare For Puffiness And Dark Circles
What causes puffiness and dark circles?
Puffy eye bags and dark circles aren’t reasons to be concerned from a medical viewpoint, but cosmetically, they can be quite a bother. Often thought to occur due to lack of sleep, dark under-eye circles and puffy eyes can also be due to allergies, thinning skin around the eye area, loss of fatty tissue around the eyes due to ageing, frequent rubbing of the eyes, poor lifestyle choices and overexposure to sunlight. However, for some unlucky individuals, dark under-eye circles and puffy eye bags could also be attributed to genetics and ethnicity.
Although there are plenty of home treatment remedies and medical treatments to remove dark eye circles and puffiness that comes with it, not all methods are safe or beneficial for the delicate skin around your eyes. Don’t fret though, with some help from Clarins, you should be well on your way to the radiant, bold eyes you’ve always wanted.
How do you get rid of puffiness and dark circles?
Diet and lifestyle changes should be the first thing you try to help manage your skin issues. Overconsumption of salt, alcohol as well a lack of fluids may result in the puffy eyes you dread. Puffy eyes are caused by an excessive accumulation of fluids in the surrounding skin’s tissue. As the skin around your eye area is thinner than the rest of your face, signs of dehydration tend to show up there first, so load up on fluids and try to cut down on your salt and alcohol intake.
However, if your under-eye bags are still stubbornly hanging on, try gently tapping your eye contour with your fingertips. Work your way from the inner corner of your eyes to the outer corner. Repeat this exercise several more times to boost blood circulation in the area and encourage lymphatic drainage. There are plenty of eye creams and eye serums for dark circles and puffy eyes available in the Singaporean beauty scene, but it’s best to choose an eye serum that’s gentle on the eye area such as the Clarins Enhancing Eye Lift for better results. A potent serum formulated to target dark eye circles, the Enhancing Eye Lift also visibly lifts your eyelids and helps fortify your lashes to give you a bigger, bolder and more radiant gaze.
For an even more effective method to blast away puffiness and dark circles, try prepping your skin with our V-Facial Intensive Wrap. A beauty treatment that contains ingredients such as Chinese Barley and Gingko extracts, it helps to eliminate puffiness by draining excess water and toxins within just 10 minutes.
Don’t just stop at making changes while you’re awake. An often-overlooked factor that contributes to dark circles and puffy eyes may be in the very activity meant to help reduce it: sleeping. Gravity and the way you position yourself when you sleep can affect how much fluid collects under your eyes while you snooze. It’s advisable to position yourself flat on your back with an extra pillow under your head to prevent fluid from flowing upwards towards your face and if possible, invest in a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce the likelihood of developing fine lines. Let your beauty sleep work for you in more ways than one when you apply a sculpting serum such as our V Shaping Facial Lift before bed. Not only will it help reduce puffiness around your eye area, but it will also give your face an overall lift while it’s at it. You don’t necessarily need to apply only products specifically meant for dark eye circles as Clarins’ products can help to tone, sculpt and brighten the rest of your face while still being effective on your eye area.
