What Causes Dark Circles?

As we get older, we start to notice some changes around the under-eye area. Wrinkles and fine lines start appearing, the area becomes baggier, and dark circles start to form. There are a few main causes of dark circles, but here are the main ones:

  • Aging: As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elastin, two building blocks of the skin. This causes the skin to become thinner and weaker, exposing darker tissues and blood vessels.
  • Sleeping Habits: Extreme tiredness from under-sleeping or fatigue from over-sleeping can cause the skin to become duller and paler, also exposing the darker tissues and blood vessels underneath.
  • Dehydration: Just like fatigue, dehydration causes skin to become dull and pale, making the skin under the eyes appear darker and sunken.  
  • Eye Strain: Straining your eyes by looking at a screen enlarges blood vessels, making them more visible and darkening the skin.  
  • Sun Exposure: Sun exposure not only speeds up the aging process but can also cause hyperpigmentation, making your under-eye skin appear darker.

What Are Hydrogel Patches?

Hydrogel patches, also known as gel eye pads, are placed under the eye to help improve skin concerns. They are made of hydrogel and soaked in essence or serum to deliver skincare ingredients to the under-eye area. Depending on what ingredients they contain, they can achieve different results, such as wrinkle reduction, depuffing, and brightening.

Which Ingredients Are Best For Brightening?

Look for patches with brightening ingredients to brighten the under-eye area and reduce dark circles. Here are a few options to choose from:

  • Vitamin C: This powerful antioxidant can help to revive and protect weakened skin and has brightening properties. It helps reduce dark circles and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Retinol: Retinol treats sun spots or darkened skin caused by harmful UV rays, reduces hyperpigmentation, and evens out skin texture for radiant under-eye skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: HA delivers intense hydration, plumping and brightening the skin around the eyes.
  • Gold Extract : A popular ingredient with antioxidant and brightening properties. It slows down the depletion of collagen, increases skin's elasticity making the skin firm, improves blood circulation and prevents premature aging.
