Q & A – dark circles

QUESTION: I have dark circles under my eyes even when I am fully rested, can you recommend a good eye cream and/or a concealer?

ANSWER: Try Avon’s ANEW ALTERNATIVE Intensive Eye Cream (I blogged about this product a couple month’s back… CLICK HERE to read the post). I really like this product… it feels refreshing yet isn’t greasy. It also promises a significant decrease in dark circles.

I’d also say to fork over some major bucks and invest in the best under-eye cover up on the market… Cle de Peau’s Concealer. It comes in three shades: Ivory, Ocher and Beige, and it’s designed to reduce redness (for zits) and dark hues. This is some serious cover-up.

Although, dark circles can be genetic, diet can also play a significant role. Research has shown that increasing your iron intake can help… try eating more spinach!

And finally, random, I know, but an at-home remedy that people swear by…. cucumber juice (it lightens the area)! Smash it up, skin and all, and apply under your eyes. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse!
