Dark Eye Circles Treatments in Singapore

Are you self-conscious about your dark eye circles? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Dark eye circles can affect people of all ages and have a significant impact on their overall appearance.

In Singapore, there are plenty of treatment options to address this concern.

What Are Dark Eye Circles ?

Dark eye circles are dark-coloured patches or discolouration around the eyes, which not only make one look tired and aged, but they can also affect one’s self-confidence.

Types of Dark Eye Circles

There are three main types of dark eye circles:

  1. Sunken eye bags: Caused by lack of sleep
  2. Hollow eyes: Due to age-related loss of fats and volume
  3. Deep purple discolouration: Usually caused by accumulated blood vessels beneath your skin surface

How do dark eye circles form?

Dark eye circles form due to the blood vessels and pigmentation under the thin skin around the eyes. The skin in this area is delicate and prone to discolouration. The blood vessels can become more visible due to ageing and thinning of the skin, making the under-eye area appear darker. Pigmentation can also occur due to the production of melanin in response to UV exposure or hormonal changes.

Causes of Dark Eye Circles

As mentioned earlier, there are various factors that contribute to the formation of dark eye circles. Let’s take a closer look at some of these causes.

  • Genetics and Hereditary Factors

    Some individuals are more prone to developing dark eye circles due to their genetic makeup. If your parents or close relatives have dark eye circles, there is a higher chance that you may also have them.
  • Lack of Sleep

    This is a common cause that we are all familiar with. Lack of sleep can make the blood vessels under the eyes dilate, causing them to appear more prominent.
  • Ageing and Thinning Skin

    As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner. This can make the blood vessels underneath more visible, resulting in dark eye circles.
  • Sun Exposure and UV Damage

    Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause hyperpigmentation and darkening of the skin, including the delicate under-eye area.
  • Allergies and Sinus Problems

    Seasonal allergies or sinus issues can lead to inflammation and swelling around the eyes, making dark circles appear more prominent.

How to Prevent Dark Eye Circles?

Prevention is always better than cure. Here are some simple steps you can take to prevent dark eye circles:

  • Get Enough Sleep

    Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep every night. This will allow your body and skin to rest and repair itself.

  • Drink Plenty of Water

    Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining healthy skin. Drinking enough water can help flush out toxins and keep the under-eye area bright and plump.

  • Limit Your Salt Intake

    Consuming too much salt can cause water retention, leading to puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.

  • Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes

    Rubbing your eyes can irritate the delicate skin and break blood vessels, causing dark circles to appear. Be gentle when removing makeup or applying skincare products around the eye area.

  • Cold Compress

    Applying a cold compress can help constrict the blood vessels and reduce puffiness. You can use a chilled eye mask or simply wrap some ice cubes in a clean cloth and place it over your eyes for a few minutes.

Which Dark Eye Circles Treatment Is Suitable For Me?

  • Type of Dark Eye Circles

    Different types of dark circles may require different treatments or approaches. Therefore, it’s important to understand the type of dark circles you have before selecting a particular treatment.

  • Your Skin Type

    The skin around the eyes is usually more sensitive than other areas of the face, so it’s important to make sure that any dark eye circle treatments are suitable for your skin type.

  • Cost & Results

    It’s also important to consider the cost of different treatments and what kind of results you can expect from them. Some treatments may provide long-term solutions while others may be temporary fixes.
