Banish Dark Circles for Brighter Eyes!

By Salon Forty Seven, Feb 19 2017 06:04PM

The skin around your eye area is up to 40% thinner than the rest of your face, giving it an instant disadvantage when it comes to ageing. Dark circles under the eye area are a pesky problem for most women!

Luckily at Salon Forty Seven we know that dark circles can be banished with just a little extra TLC. We have popped together some recommendations on how you can banish dark circles for good.

Plump Up Your Pillows

Did you know that by simply popping an extra pillow or two under your head when sleeping could reduce the risk of dark circles? This helps reduce fluid and blood build-up, which is one of the main causes of puffy and sore eyes.

Eat Chocolate

We can imagine you’re feeling slightly sceptical about this recommendation, but it’s true! Foods high in flavonoids such as higher percentage dark chocolate, can help your body to fight off dark circles under your eyes.

Gently, Gently

Remember the skin around your eyes is delicate. Always use your ring finger to apply eye cream or products to this area and avoid applying too much pressure.

Pamper Your Eyes

Here are our top product recommendations to banish dark circles and leave your eye area looking brighter, radiant and glowing:

IMAGE Ageless Total Eye Lift Crème

This product soothes irritated and tired eyes due to the combination of green tea, coneflower and chamomile. It tightens the skin with a retinol-derived glycolic blend.

IMAGE MAX Stem Cell Eye Crème with Vectorize Technology

Containing edelweiss, argan and grape stem cells your skin will be left revitalised and the effects of stress, tiredness and ageing will be reduced.

Vital C Hydrating Eye Recovery Gel

This targeted product helps fight the effects of dehydration and dry skin, which in turn reduces the appearance of dark circles. It also nourishes the skin with antioxidants that slow the effects of ageing.

At Salon Forty Seven we also offer a range of IMAGE facials to target dark circles under the eyes. See Karen for a bespoke skin consultation.
