Hola Love 🐰 Bunnies!
Today I’m going to be discussing a problem and dispelling some myths about a persistent beauty concern that plagues both men and women :”Dark circles” .
🐼Did you know that each year over $1billion worth of eye care products are bought by consumers? That’s some serious cash 💰 being spent each year to try and correct a problem that doesnt seem to respond any type of skincare product regardless of the claims made.
🐼Over the years I too have played the part of the gullible, willing consumer clamoring for the latest new product to hit the store shelves : everything from creams, gels, roller ball serums, homemade masks, iced teaspoons even microneedling 😖ouch! In a series of failed attempts to try and rid myself of these persistent dark shadows that have me fending off questions like : Didn’t you sleep last night? Are you sick? 😒
🐼Finally burnt out from my ⚗️experiments I decided to pay a visit to a couple of dermatologists to try and figure out the mystery behind solving this predicament.
So here is the verdict:
🐼Dark circles if hereditary meaning if they are not caused by lack of sleep or a poor diet cannot be removed via topical applications like creams, gels, serums or if you are a DIY queen 👸🏼 via 🍋 lemons, aloe vera gel, vitamin capsules , cucumbers 🥒 or 🥔 potatoes.
🐼Serious dark circles which are sometimes accompanied by hollows under the eyes can only be treated by fillers or laser therapy or a combination of both.
🐼Now here you have a few options ; you can either opt for cosmetic fillers : Juvederm, Restalyne etc and follow that up with a few sessions of laser therapy ( your doctor will decide based on your individual case which laser to use).
🐼Your second option if you are vary of cosmetic fillers which I totally am btw 😣. Is to opt for PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy which involves injecting the plasma in your own blood in the troublesome areas . Personally if I ever do get over my terror of needles the latter will be the option I will be looking into. The idea of injecting my own blood while squeamish is still a much safer option than cosmetic fillers which come with their own set of complications : bruising, lumpiness to name a few not to mention hideously expensive. 💸
🐼So there you have it peeps a short and hopefully informative insight into the mystery of dark circles and how to go about getting rid of them. Hope this post was helpful to those of you struggling with this problem and will end up keeping you from spending your hard earned💸 money on useless creams and potions.
🐼Hey if nothing else you can atleast invest in a few good concealers to camouflage those panda rings while you makeup your mind about which treatment to pursue.
