Dark Circles Under Eyes Men – How To Deal
Just because they are men, does not mean they will not or rather they cannot have beauty problems like us women. Ok! May be they do not like to relate the term “beauty” with their “problems” but, nonetheless they too have them
However this is a age where men are no more afraid to flaunt their metrosexuality. They are nowadays open about their beauty concerns, they show interest in grooming and anti-ageing, and are frequent visitors to salons and spas. Taking care of yourself, is never a bad thing, showing concerns about your own appearance and looking after it only goes to show that you love yourself. And be it a man or a woman, everybody should love oneself and take care of oneself.
Now just like women dark circles under eyes is also a great concern for the men as well. And since men do not wear makeup to conceal them like us women, the dark circles appear even more prominent. These stubborn dark circles can be triggered off by multiple factors.
Reasons that causes dark circles:
Lack of Sleep
We know that being a man of the house they have a lot of responsibilities on their shoulders, and this keeps them stressed a lot of time, hence the low sleep hours. Which is one of the major reasons behind getting dark circles.
Yes! They can also be passed down from generation to generation. So sometimes it is to do with your genes. And this at times get more prominent with age.
A busy schedule throughout the day prevents them from looking after their diet. But this is equally important and responsible for developing dark circles underneath the eyes. Improper eating habits, eating junk food, not eating vegetables and fruits all counts.
Not Drinking Enough
Dear ones, I am talking about water. Drinking a minimum of 8-10 glasses of plain water in the course of the entire day is extremely essential. And when that does not happen problems like sagging skin, puffy eyes and dark circle start appearing.
Being out in the sun for long hours, without any sun protection too lead to problems like dark circles. And men mostly are rather careless as far as this fact is concerned.
So now let us look at some of the tips you can use to combat this problem.
Ways to deal with dark circles:
Drink lots of water. If possible carry around a small bottle. You should always keep your body and skin well hydrated. Water also helps to flush out the toxins that might cause allergies or rashes on the skin, and eventually lead to dark circles( as the skin underneath you eyes are really sensitive, and even the smallest of abrasion can cause wear an tear).
It is important to keep skin glowing from within. So include a lot of Vit C containing fruits, leafy vegetables, whole grains and essential fatty oils(from fish) in your diet.
This is when you come back home and you are relaxing. Just grate some cucumber, or else you can also cut them in thin slices. Put these on your eyes, and lie down for a while. Relax! After a while remove the cucumber and wash your face with cold water. The cucumber hydrates the area as well as acts like a natural bleach.
Vit E Oil Massage
You can either buy a bottle of Vit-E oil, or just get some Vit-E capsules and squeeze out the oil from within. Massage this oil very lightly onto your skin.
Moisturisers are not meant just for women’s skin. Men too need them. So make sure you apply some everyday. Especially after bath( for then the skin is already soft and moist, and this allows the moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin) and before you go to sleep
These are some of the basic tips on how men can deal with their under eye dark circles problem.
