How to Treat Dark Circles: A Comprehensive Guide

The skin around our eyes is vulnerable. As we age, we lose elastin— a key aspect of healthy, youthful skin—our eye contour area becomes increasingly prone to dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, crepiness, and sagging. While these skin concerns are super common, the good news is they are treatable. Using an anti-aging eye cream for dark circles and signs of aging can boost radiance, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve the overall look of the eye area.

Read on to learn more about the unique needs of the eye contour area and how using an anti-aging eye cream for dark circles and signs of aging can work for you.

Understanding the Skin Around Your Eye Contour: How is it Different?

One of the first areas to show visible signs of aging is the eye contour zone. Unlike the skin on the rest of the face, the skin around the eyes is much thinner and more delicate, which makes the area much more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention sagging or droopiness. The skin around the eyes also does not contain many oil glands, which helps keep skin well-lubricated. Additionally, it lacks the fatty tissue found in other areas of the face that keeps skin looking plump, also ensures the eye contour area ages faster than the rest of your face. Just one reason it is never too early to start using an eye cream.

Improving the Appearance of Dark Circles Under the Eyes

But it is not just that your eye contour skin is delicate. There are many factors that cause those dark circles and signs of age, including genetics, aging, lack of sleep, dermatitis, sun damage, dehydration, smoking, stress, and just rubbing your eyes.

Luckily, there is a lot you can do to help. Read on for our quick guide on how to treat dark circles:

  • Use an anti-aging eye cream. Using a pro-Retinol eye cream for dark circles can be beneficial not least because it improves texture and tone of skin, which in turn can minimize dark circles and other signs of aging.
  • Stay hydrated. Water can help flush out toxins that contribute to dark circles.
  • Use cold compresses. This will constrict the blood vessels around the eyes, which can help minimize darkness in the area.
  • Reduce sun exposure. In some cases, UV rays can worsen dark circles, so when going outside during peak sun hours, apply sunscreen.
  • Prioritize sleep. A quality night sleep can go a long way to helping reduce bags and dark circles.

A Powerful Mixture of Active Ingredients: Biotherm's Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream

So, how do you choose an effective anti-aging eye cream? Start by looking at the ingredients.

Retinol is proven to help with dark circles as well as wrinkles and other signs of aging. In fact, new Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream delivers a firmer eye contour within minutes1, as well as reducing dark circles2 and wrinkles3. The formula of the new Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream is powered by next generation pro-retinol, a stabilized derivative of vitamin A known as retinyl palmitate that releases steadily into the skin over time, improving both texture and tone. This type of retinol is gentler and safer, without compromising results. That makes it perfect for the sensitive skin around the eyes - shown by rigorous testing under ophthalmological control.

In addition to pro-retinol, this anti-aging eye cream for dark circles and wrinkles also contains a magic little micro-organism called Life Plankton™—the proprietary Biotherm ingredient at the heart of Biotherm's game-changing formulations. Possessing incredible bio-affinity with skin, it contains 35 nutrients found within the skin and activates the skin’s natural regeneration process, helping it to repair faster. Scientists recently discovered that Life Plankton™ amplifies the power of pro-retinol, creating the powerful proprietary Blue Pro-Retinol.

The other clinically proven ingredient found in Biotherm’s anti-aging eye cream for dark circles? Caffeine. Caffeine is packed with skin-brightening antioxidant properties and helps support proper drainage and decongestion. That means it improves the appearance of under-eye puffiness, bags, and dark circles. Plus, it provides an immediate brightening and depuffing effect and helps keep dark circles under control.

Clean Beauty: Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream True to Blue Commitments

In line with Biotherm’s commitments to safe, sustainable skincare, the new Blue Pro-Retinol Eye Cream for dark circles is also fully vegan and sustainable. It features ingredients of 95% natural origin and is 99% biodegradable. Additionally, it comes in a 40% recycled glass jar with a 100% recycled plastic cap.
