Top 10 Eye Creams for Under Eye Dark Circles and Wrinkles

Dark circles and aging wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines are a common occurrence for women over 25 years of age. Reasons are many, such as an extremely stressed lifestyle, environmental pollution and genetics. However, with proper and adequate precaution, you can control dark circle appearance and slower aging-related wrinkles.

In this article, you will learn about the reasons why under eye dark circles and wrinkles occur, and read our list of best recommended eye creams available in India.

Let’s begin.

Why Do Dark Circles Happen?

The occurrence of dark circles can give any sane woman days and months of horror! Whenever you look in the mirror, you see the eyes of a tired and stressed lady. You have reached a point when a sweet 8-hour night sleep isn’t enough anymore to get rid of the horrifying dark circles.

Dermatologists around the world suggest that to get rid of dark circles, you need to combat it from its source.

Some reasons why you have dark circles are:

  • Brace yourself if it’s in your genes! Women with thin and fair skin often get dark circles because the blood pools beneath the skin often, causing the capillaries to leak and stretch.
  • Aging is a common cause. With time, the skin becomes thin and loses collagen. Women who remain in sun for long hours experience dark circles frequently.
  • Seasonal allergies realise histamines in the body due to which dark circles break out.

 Determine Your Reason – Quick Tip

Use your finger pads to gently stretch the skin below your eyes. If the stretching causes the area to turn dark, genetics and aging is the cause of your dark circles. If not, other factors like harmful UV rays and bad lifestyle are the reasons.

Why do Under Eye Wrinkles Happen?

Under eye wrinkles are the first sign of aging. Due to various reasons, the skin around the eyes becomes thin and sensitive, and the skin slowly ceases to produce oil to nourish itself. Exposure to harmful UV rays and unbalanced lifestyle exacerbate the condition.

Hormonal aging, genetic aging, environmental aging and UV exposure are some reasons for under eye wrinkles. As we age, the skin begins to lose its natural firmness and elasticity, and earth’s gravity impacts our skin, making it look “droopy” and “saggy”. This creates wrinkles and folds in the skin.

However, both the under eye dark circles and wrinkles can be corrected with advanced eye creams. Read our list and click for best available deals available on Amazon.
