"I have dark circles, what should I do?" is a very common question asked to our customer service.
Indeed, with all the information available on the internet, it is very easy to feel lost and not know what to use to effectively treat dark circles without danger on black skin.
Which eye contour should I choose? What complementary care should I use? What cleansers should I use? How long will it take to be effective? Should I resort to cosmetic medicine?
In this article, we'll take you step by step through our anti-dark circle routine, specially designed for black, dark and mixed-race skin. Our promise: a spotless, unified eye contour area with a radiant, de-fatigued look: without tingling or tightness.
WHY IS MY EYE AREA BLACK?
First of all, you must understand that a dark/brown circle is specific to black skin. It is different from a "classic" blue/purple circle , known as vascular, because the latter is linked to hyperpigmentation of the skin around your eyes. These pigmented circles can be caused by :
- Genetics: It can be hereditary and thus present in several members of your family
- The sun: The skin around the eyes is naturally very photo-exposed, which makes it particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of the sun on the skin.
- Hormones: Due to an increase in the level of hormones in the body following a period of intense stress, the taking/stopping of contraception or pregnancy.
- Post-inflammatory reactions: Black skin is very reactive, so any sensitization such as dermatitis or repeated rubbing is likely to result in a hyperpigmentation spot.
Therefore, treating dark circles around the eyes is like treating a spot of hyperpigmentation on the skin. Thus, some of the points of this dark circle routine will be similar to our safe anti-spot routine. However, the skin around the eyes is more dehydrated, more sensitive and more reactive, so it requires a specific routine described below.
RITUAL AGAINST DARK CIRCLES IN 5 POINTS
1. A CLEANSED EYE CONTOUR, THE STEP NOT TO BE MISSED!
The eye contour is a sensitive area that is very exposed to external aggressions such as the sun or pollution. Makeup is sometimes added to enhance the eyes. However, it can also sensitize your eye contour area depending on its composition and/or its waterproof, long-lasting nature. It is therefore important to opt for a good cleansing that combines "depth and gentleness".
- Gently remove your eye contour makeup:
To remove your eye contour makeup (eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, etc.), use My Cleasing Micellar Water Sensitive Skin. Using a cotton pad, gently and non-aggressively remove your makeup so as not to sensitize the skin and/or lose lashes.
- Finish with a good cleansing for a purified eye contour
Morning and night, use My Foam Purifying Cleansing for a gentle cleansing that respects the sensitivity of your eye area. Your skin will be softer, fresher and purified.
Then you can start applying your skin care products!
