Hey, Bright Eyes! Combat Dark Circles With These Eye CreamsHere's why dark under-eye circles show up, and what you can do to combat them.
Dark under-eye circles can sometimes feel like it's the only thing you can notice about your (beautiful) face. They give away your fatigue and let people know just how late you were out the night before faster than you can delete your IG story. And even though your dark circles are nobody's business but yours, here are some practices and products that can help you look bright-eyed and well-rested, even if your not. The Main Causes Of Dark CirclesWhat you see as dark circles under your eyes are tiny reddish-blue blood vessels that are more visible due to the eye area being more delicate than the rest of our body. The main causes of dark under-eye circles are a lack of sleep, allergies, aging, and plain genetics. Though we can't do anything about the last cause, there are a few things you can do about the first four! The most important thing on our list of dark circle remedies? SLEEP. Yup, the thing we all need but can't seem to get right. Sleep! Getting your eight hours a night can make a huge difference in dark under-eye circles, because it allows your body to recalibrate and rest from the day, bringing it back to homeostasis. Next on our must-do's is to drink water! Drinking enough water is crucial to healthy detoxification of the skin and blood, which keeps your skin looking plump and hydrated. Next, you want to make sure you choose the perfect eye cream for you. From eye patches to overnight eye creams, the new range of dark under-eye circle remedies have proven to perform, and our Cherie users can help prove that. Read on to learn more about what our users have to say! 1. This Eye Cream That Helps You Fake A Good Nights Rest

SATURDAY SKINWide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with AvocadoThough we strongly believe in getting a full night's rest, sometimes that just isn't the case! A fun night out may never seem to end, or inspiration for passion project has suddenly called your name and you've got a wave to ride. For nights like these, we need all the help we can get. Enter Saturday Skin's Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream—using date seed extract to illuminate and refresh the eye area, a few dabs of this eye cream is the perfect way to get a good nights rest, without a good nights rest.
"As someone who doesn’t sleep well and has tired-looking eyes constantly, I have noticed a significant difference in a few weeks that I have been using the eye cream. I like how it makes the area well hydrated thus, making it look brighter! Consistency is the key. "2. A Lightly Tinted Eye Cream That Doubles As ConcealerTatcha's The Pearl is a powerful product that acts as an eye cream and concealer at the same time. Reach for it when you want to look instantly awake in a very natural way! We love using The Pearl as our day-to-day concealer because it sits so lightly on the skin while covering imperfections.
"This product contains Akoya Pearl Extract, which adds radiance by improving thinning skin, blue tones, and darkness around the eyes. It also acts as a concealer, combining your skincare and makeup in one. It also contains niacinamide to brighten and skin, along with silk powder which claims to smooth the look of fine lines. It combines all these ingredients with the superpower of hadasei-3 which is a trio of Japanese anti-aging superfoods and hyaluronic acid."3. These Eye Patches That Detoxify and De-Puff
pixiDetoxifEYEIf you have some extra time on your hands, layering a good eye patch on top of in place of your eye cream for 5-10 minutes can make a huge difference in improving dark circles. You just throw the patches right along your eye area, sit back, relax, and see the difference! We love Pixi's DetoxifEYE Patches because they feel cool to the touch, de-puff in an instant, and are such a great value!
"These hydrogel eye patches claim to “instantly reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles while moisturizing and soothing your skin”. ‘DetoxifEYE’ was my first introduction to any kind of eye product and it provided moisture that I never knew I needed. I even treated the patches like my sheet mask and kept them in the fridge for the ultimate soothing factor and they felt bomb."4. A Renewing Eye Sleeping Mask With Retinol
GLOW RECIPEAvocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face MaskOvernight masks might be the best beauty invention yet—think about it, you slather it on before bed, get some shut-eye, and wake up with gorgeous skin... talk about beauty sleep! Glow Recipe takes sleeping masks to a new level with their Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask. This sleeping mask uses one of skincare's buzziest ingredients, retinol, as the active ingredient to help renew your delicate eye area. Retinol is known to provide powerfully anti-aging benefits, which include reducing dark circles, and wrinkles. Because this product also has Avocado as a main ingredient, the often drying effects of retinol are balanced out with the nourishing benefits of avocado.
" This is my first experience with retinol so I have nothing to compare it to but I will say that this was extremely gentle & did not irritate my skin in the slightest. Over time I have noticed my dark circles have faded slightly (I have hereditary circles so they likely won’t diminish fully) & my under eyes are brighter and less puffy in the morning. My skin is also so much more smooth. I used to have those pesky tiny bumps under my eyes (anyone know what they are called?) and they are completely gone! 🥑💚"
Another beautiful HA serum other than Glowrecipe
Another beautiful Hyaluronic acid serum! I am a fan of Farsali products and this is no exception 😍❤️ MOISTURE REPLENISHING SERUM QUENCH by Farsali ✨💧 fARSÁLI - Quench I found it similar to Glowrecipe one in performance and details while the consistency is a little different. It's a hyaluronic acid serum that helps to replenish moisture in the skin by using a unique complex of low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. The staggered molecular weights of the Hyaluronic Acid are designed to help promote multi-depth hydration on both the skin's surface and in the epidermis. Enriched with replenishing Provitamin B5, the skin's elasticity appears improved as well as feeling and looking softer. ❤️INGREDIENTS: 💧Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight, versatile hydrator that attracts and binds 1,000 times its weight in water. Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is such a tiny molecule, it's able to penetrate deep into your skin and replenish moisture from within. 💧Hyaluronic Acid High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, due to the larger molecule size, this Hyaluronic Acid sits on top of the skin, forming an invisible shield that traps moisture. This helps reduce moisture loss from stress, heat, extreme cold and environmental factors. 💧Vitamin B5 Vitamin B5 a naturally moisturizing form of Vitamin B5, otherwise known as Panthenol. This silky vitamin helps replenish skin for a soft and supple appearance. The best part is it's Ingredients list, it's only 7 Ingredients and the formulation is so good that I feel I have been sleeping on this product for this long. It feels so soft and smooth on skin, goes on silky, smooth and doesn't feel heavy. And after few hours skin feels super hydrated and plump. I found this serum to be working the best for dehydrated skin condition. Especially in the colder months. Dehydration leads to broken barrier and dullnes, this targets these issues! It's only 24$ which is a win in my opinion! Their opther products which are my favorite are a bit more expensive than this one! I love it! It goes on perfect under makeup as well! Would you like to try this?

Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
I love a dry shampoo with a lot of powder because it is what is absorbing the oil to make your hair look less greasy. However, sometimes there is a little white powder residue that I can’t seem to rub into my dark hair. Simple solution 💡!! Shine spray! It makes it all blend away!
