WHAT CAUSES DARK UNDEREYE CIRCLES & WRINKLES?
This is a poorly understood condition that plagues many people with dark skin tones. There are two main reasons that contribute to this condition.
1) The epidermis under the eyes ie the top layer of skin, is very thin. This allows any dark pigmentation in the skin or wrinkles to look more pronounced & worse.
2) The capillaries in the dermis have a tendency to leak easily allowing red blood cells to leave the blood vessels and deposit in the tissue. The haemoglobin in these red blood cells breaks down to a dark brown-blue pigment called Haemosiderin. This is the cause of the colour of dark circles.
The main reason for these leaky capillaries is Advanced Glycation End products(AGEs).These AGEs are generated when the protein lining the capillaries combines with glucose to create an inflammatory molecule causing them to leak blood into the tissues. Therefore any product used to treat this difficult condition must contain Anti AGEs ingredients to address this problem .In addition a sun protection factor of at least 15 should be present. Blood vessel vasoconstrictors such as caffeine is also very good.
One product that meets these requirements is Eyerix that contains depigmenters+Anti AGEs+spf15.
