Under Eye Dark Circles - Causes
Despite what most people think, under eye dark circles are not necessarily caused by being tired or stressed. Instead, dermatologists and plastic surgeons agree that persistent dark circles are caused by capillaries that leak blood close to the skin’s surface.
When this blood begins to oxidize it turns a bluish red colour, similar to a bruise. And since the skin under the eyes is very thin, this leads to the appearance of those dark circles. The more transparent your skin and the more blood that pools under it, the darker the circles appear. And what’s worse, this discoloration over time can become permanent!
Benefits of Haloxyl: In scientific studies, Haloxyl™, has been shown to help reduce the leaked blood under the skin by using a series of natural enzymes that break down the blood and cause the dark circles to fade. In fact, Haloxyl™ is so effective because it actually helps strengthen the capillaries to help prevent them from leaking in the first place. HALOXYL™ is recommended for the treatment of dark circles under the eye at levels of 2% In a double-blind clinical trial more than 72% of women who had serious dark circles and used Haloxyl™ saw an obvious visible reduction in the dark color under their eyes. Our serum uses 3% Haloxyl so ought to be more effective than the test serum
Cucumber Extract: contains anti-inflammatory agents which can help reduce puffy eyelids. Reputed to be able to help reduce dark circles under the eyes. Cucumber slices are commonly applied to tired stressed eyes and this direct method can help reduce puffiness. The cucumber extract in our eye serum is a more convenient method!
Horse Chestnut Extract (Escin) - Actively strengthens and repairs the capillary network. Horse Chestnut also soothes inflammation and can help reduce local water retention which can cause puffy eyelids. And the remarkable benefits don't stop there! Horse Chestnut is a potent anti-oxidant which means it can help protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Centella Asiatica - actively helps to repair and strengthen the damaged capillaries that contribute significantly to the appearance of dark under eye circles. Centella Asiatica also helps repair damaged skin and can promote collagen production thus improving the structure and tone of the skin
The active ingredients are carried in a light oil free serum / cream that the skin will absorb quickly.
Good product. Dispenser pushes a little too much of the serum out but thats not a major issue. My dark circles have reduced and some puffiness in the under eyes is lessened ( I wasn't expecting that) so all in all quite happy.
After three weeks daily use I can see improvements. I will certainly continue with this product. Very good value.
Great product for the price. Highly recommended
Very good product. Very light and doesn't feel heavy on the eyelids. Haven't been using the product for too long (about 3 weeks) but the dark circles are looking better.
Good product. Is improving my eyelids.
