How to Handle Dark Circles and Puffiness Under Eyes
Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes are common among adults, especially as we age. In fact, under-eye concealers take up a large percentage of the money spent on cosmetics in the U.S. especially for women over 50.
At Sole Toscana, we believe there is a healthier more natural way to handle dark circles and puffiness under eyes.
In this article we cover why we might have dark circles and puffiness under our eyes. Then we dive into a guide of how to handle this as we age. Both from the inside (mentally) and outside (self-care).
What causes dark circles and puffiness?
Dark circles and puffiness under eyes is usually a combination of factors. Identifying the factors impacting our own dark circles and puffiness can be helpful in how we think about and handle them.
In addition to aging, the two most common reasons experts cite for dark circles and puffiness are (1) being tired and (2) genetics.
Other reasons may include allergies, diet (high amounts of sodium, alcohol, tobacco, etc.), hydration, and environment.
It may be helpful to ask ourselves some questions...do family members seem to have dark circles and puffiness more than others? Are we getting enough sleep and exercise? Do we struggle with allergies? What does our diet look like? Are we getting enough water? Is there anything in the environment that could be contributing?
Once reasons are identified, now you can decide how to move forward in a healthy way for you...
At Sole Toscana, we believe there is a better way than covering up the dark circles and puffiness. We believe in a healthy combination of (1) embracing and accepting yourself as you are and (2) implementing healthy self-care practices.
Here are some things to think about...
Embracing your naturally beautiful self.
Before we get into healthy self care practices for your dark circles and puffiness under eyes, changing your mindset to EMBRACE YOUR NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL SELF can make all the difference.
From a very young age, society tells women what beautiful looks like and how to be beautiful. We may associate a lot of our value with how "attractive" we are.
Changing the narrative and our mindset individually can be difficult. We need to truly believe that every woman is unique and beautiful. Including ourselves! Just like nature, there are so many different types of natural beauty to be appreciated in women.
Once this mindset is achieved of embracing your naturally beautiful self (don't worry if it takes time), skincare and beauty routines take on new meaning.
You aren't doing these things to look a certain way and be attractive to others. Instead you are truly taking care of yourself! Just like we take care of Mother Earth to preserve and enhance her natural beauty, you are taking care of yourself to enhance your natural beauty.
