This is the one question I think all glasses wearers are dying to know the answer to. There is a myth that wearing glasses can cause dark circles around our eyes. Is this true? If so, why is that? How can we minimise this?

Wearing glasses which press too tightly around this delicate area can slow lymph circulation causing the appearance of dark circles. To address this problem I adore using the Skinbreeze Eye Brightener, an organic cosmeceutical serum containing an active complex of soy and rice peptides, yeast protein, hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract which combine to help combat puffiness and discolouration around the eyes.

There does seem to be a myth around wearing glasses and the link to dark circles around the eye, it’s very difficult to say that this is true as our skin types are all different however if you have particularly sensitive skin under the eye and wear heavy frames this can certainly contribute to a dark under eye area. With dark circles it’s really important to use a product that’s designed to treat dark circles rather than just cover them, as you will just be shielding the problem.

The Resultime 5 Expertise Eye Cream contains a patented technology called Vectorised Micro-Collagen which is a system of transporting the product down to the deepest layers of the skin, this is really going to target dark circles and ensure they are being treated from below the skin.

Lets examine the eye area closer. If the colour is closer to blue/black this can result in oxygenated blood pooled beneath the skins surface. This area is very thin allowing the blood to show through and is often more noticeable in the morning when we have been laying in bed for a while. The blue may worsen with age, due to the loss of subcutaneous fat which masks the blueness. The Eye Elixir has been specially designed to tackle both Blue Black and Blue Brown colouring.

To combat the “Morning Blues” apply the Eye Elixir every morning the formulation will boost circulation, plump and push the skin up away from the pooled area. The cooling vitaminic rich gel/serum allows the vessels to reduce in sizes whist’s the Hyaluronic Acid plumps firms and lifts.
