Teen Talk Tuesday; Under Eye Circles ♥

Hey Everyone!
I'm going to be doing this Teen Talk Tuesdays every month or even some times more than once a month! This post is all about under eye circles ... i get them, so do a lot of teens these days! In this post I will be explaining how they are caused and how they can de dealt with and we can banish them!!

How are under eye circles caused? 

1. One of the main causes of dark circles under your eyes is rubbing them. This is due to any allergies that you may have due to the change of seasons or even various foods. If your dark circles are caused because of the allergies, that you may have then make sure you use a very gentle cleanser and be sure to avoid rubbing your eyes.

2. Another main cause for under eye circles are genetics. If your parents or anyone in your family suffer from dark circles, it is very possible you will also suffer.

3.  Dark circles can also occur due to thinning of your skin! This is why you may notice that dark circles increase as you grown up. As our bodies are constantly changing, I wouldn't use any medicine to fix this as it could affect it and make it worse.

TIP-Use a gentle eye cream daily on affected areas,  tap it very gently into the eye area with your middle finger. Please avoid tugging or pulling at the eye area it can cause the problem to increase and worsen. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this can increase blood pooling under the eyes. Try to sleep on your back, if at all possible.

How to deal with under eye circles?

1. One of the things you could do is take two green-tea bags and soak them in hot water. Then put these in the freezer until they become very cool. Place them on over eyes and sit with them on for 15-20 minutes. The caffeine in the green-tea will help with dark circles around the eyes.

2. Apply cucumber slices to your eyes. Cucumbers are high in water content and will slowly soothe the bags under your eyes. Leave the cucumber on your eyes for 15 minutes, then throw the slices away.

3.Get your beauty sleep GIRLS!!  Make sure you get plenty of sleep every night! Lack of sleep can tend to cause the skin to become paler which can increase the appearance of darkness under the eyes.

4. Please, please please remove all eye make-up before you go to sleep. If you don't do so, when you get older, your eyes can look much more tired on a daily basis.

5. Eating healthy can improve you in everyway! Make sure you have a balanced diet, eating plenty of fruits and veggies!!

6.Use a frozen spoon!!  Put a spoon in the freezer for 10-15 minutes then take it out and cover the circles with it. Hold it there until the spoon is warm again.
