If you want to look well-rested—like, eight-full-hours-of-beauty-sleep-rested—but your dark circles are saying otherwise…then you’ve come to the right place. The reason for your aubergine under-eyes? Well, there could be many. Physiologically—the skin around your eye area is much thinner than on the rest of your body, which means you can see the blood vessels more easily. Could also be a result of hyperpigmentation (which is a bit trickier to treat) and genetics (thanks, Auntie Gina). Lack of sleep, stress, ageing, dehydration and other health issues (including low iron and allergies) can also exacerbate the problem. The good news is there are plenty of simple ways to treat, conceal and correct them. We’ve called upon MECCA’s Director of Education, Jacob Stanley (whose under eyes are always radiant) to share exactly how it’s done.
