As cute as the name sounds, panda eyes are anything but. They make you look sallow, tired, aged, and unwell. Worst of all, you’re more aware of how bad your dark circles have become now that more and more pushy salespeople from skin beauty shops could spot you from a mile away.
If this sounds like you, then you’re an unfortunate victim of panda eyes. What’s more, these stubborn imperfections seem to take on a life of their own. They grow ever darker with each passing day and sully your once radiant and youthful eyes. It’s not the most attractive trait, and no amount of cakey concealers can cover up this flaw.
But you won’t have to put up with it any more because, with this secret guide to bright, beautiful eyes, you can now swipe panda eyes away like a harmless AR age filter.
Before we spill the beans, let’s dig deep and find out what causes panda eye problems in the first place.
What are Panda Eyes Caused By?
A snapshot of your typical day probably shows you up and about with only 4 to 5 hours of sleep. Then you’re running around all day without sparing much time for yourself to eat properly or drink sufficient fluids.
Within this scenario alone, there are already a few red warning flags that contribute to panda eyes.
Let’s go through them one by one, shall we?
One of the primary causes of panda eyes is sleep deprivation. In individuals with insufficient sleep, skin moisture, pH levels, and collagen growth are stunted. This causes your skin to look pale, paper-thin and aged. It can also cause water retention and puffy eyes. Combining these factors makes the red and blue blood vessels underneath your skin more pronounced, giving you the unfortunate effect of panda eyes.
The skin around your eyes loses its elasticity and tension as you age. The youthful fat that used to hold up your eyes will also tend to shift to the lower eyelid, which then causes dark and puffy eye circles. This is why panda eyes are associated as an undesirable telltale sign of age too.
Genetics and allergies
Sinus allergies can dilate the tiny blood vessels under your eye, casting the effect of dark shadows or that familiar purple tinge. It’s worsened if the allergic reaction causes itchiness because it brings on rubbing, which then exacerbates skin irritation and causes puffy panda eyes.
What can you do to get rid of dark eye circles?
Everyone knows the classic trick of using cool cucumber slices, a cold metal spoon, or a face mask straight out of the fridge. It’s not just a trick to cool down in sunny Singapore, but it works to constrict the blood vessels under your eyes.
But wouldn’t it be better if we could target the root cause of panda eyes? Here are 3 easy steps to revitalize your skin and nip dark eye circles in the bud.
