Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes for Men

Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes for Men

Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes for Men

 

by

Late nights, too much of a good time, and not-so-healthy lifestyle habits can take their toll on your body and your skin. After enough time, you’re going to start waking up to dull skin, and dark, hollowed-out circles under your eyes. 

It’s not a good look, man, and you need to fix it.

Dark circles under the eyes can happen to anyone, and they can happen even if you are taking good care of yourself. Genetics, age and even improper skin care can cause you to have dark circles under your eyes.

Dark circles are really a result of two physical factors:

  1. Thin eye skin. The skin under your eye area is incredibly thin; about ten times layer than the rest of the skin on your face. 

  2. Blood vessels. The blood vessels under your eyes can dilate for different reasons, causing blood to pool under the eyes. 

Because the skin is thin under the eye area, pooling blood is more visible, creating dark circles under the eyes that make you look tired and older than you are. 

It’s normal for the skin under your eyes to have coloration that is slightly different than the rest of the skin on your face, but if you have dark circles, they’ll be extremely noticeable. 

If you’re dealing with dark circles, we can help you go from corpse-like to charming with a flick of your wrist. Sounds like magic, and it kind of is. Read on. 

What’s Causing the Dark Circles?

Dark circles are caused by the pooling of blood under the thin skin of the eyes, but what causes that pooling in the first place? There can be numerous reasons. Here are just a few. 

Age

You get older, you get dark circles. It’s kind of part of the territory, but it doesn’t have to be and it isn’t something you can’t get rid of. We’ve got a product rec coming up to help you fight dark circles and aging at the same time. 

Aging causes your thin eye skin to become even thinner. Over time, the structures that hold your eye skin become weak, causing the skin under the eyes to form pockets where fluid can easily build. 

You’ll also experience the loss of collagen as you get older. Collagen helps keep the skin under your eyes stay firm and filled out, which looks more youthful. 

Free Radical Damage

Think you’re too young to be concerned about aging skin? If so, consider free radical damage. Free radical damage can cause damage to your skin that weakens it, forms fine lines and wrinkles, and looks similar to aging skin. The worst part? It can happen at any age. 

Free radical damage can be confusing. Let’s break it down. Free radical damage happens because unbalanced molecules, called free radicals, attack healthy molecules in your skin cells. When this happens, it damages healthy skin cells. 

Free radicals come from numerous different sources, like uv rays, cigarette smoke (from cigarettes you smoke and smoke you are exposed to), pollution, and even household cleaning product fumes. 

Free radical damage can weaken the skin around your eyes, which can cause dark circles and even result in puffy, baggy under-eye skin. 

Sleep Issues

Not sleeping? Figure out why and fix it. Sleep issues can cause you to have dark circles under your eyes. If your body doesn’t get enough restorative sleep, it can cause your blood vessels to dilate, which can allow more blood to pool under your eyes and become visible through your skin forming dark circles. 

When you don’t sleep enough, your body goes into a cycle of sleep debt. This can be a hard cycle to break, and it can take days to make up for your lack of sleep. 

Not sure how much sleep you need? Experts agree adults 26-64 get between 7-9 hours per night. You may need more if you have an especially grueling workout or less if you wake up feeling hungover from sleeping too much. 

Smoking

If you smoke, it can interfere with your sleep schedule. Even if you don’t feel yourself having nicotine withdrawals from cigarettes during the night, the withdrawals could disrupt your sleep. 

Smoking also exposes your skin to free radicals, which as you already know can make your skin age much more quickly than it should. 

You already know that smoking isn’t good for your health, but maybe the fact it’s making you look like a zombie can convince you to give it up. 

Allergies

Allergies can cause everything in your face to feel swollen. Blame it on your sinus cavities-your face is full of them. When you experience an allergic reaction to something like pollen, your blood vessels can swell, allowing more blood to flow into your face and pool under your eyes.

Another hallmark of allergies? Puffy bags under the eyes. If you’re really lucky, you might end up with dark circles and puffy, baggy eyes.  

How to Remove Dark Circles Under the Eyes: Men’s Guide

You can only borrow your sister’s eye care products for so long before you realize they generally don’t work on your skin. That’s because most big box store products are formulated for a woman’s skin. 

A man’s skin is thicker, tougher, and more porous than a woman’s skin. Men’s skin also grows facial hair, which also makes how it responds to skin care products extremely different. 

Lucky for you, Disco exists. 

Disco is the skin care line founded by a man and dermatologist formulated to work perfectly with the pH balance of men’s skin. Our products contain ingredients that have proven to work effortlessly on men’s skin, which means you’ll get better results than you will from other products. 

We’ve got solutions for dark circles under the eyes, and it starts with our repairing eye stick

Eye Care Products

You’ve got to have a good eye cream, and Disco’s eye repair stick contains everything you need to get rid of dark circles under your eyes. It also includes super hydrating ingredients like eucalyptus oil, to keep the thin under-eye skin moisturized. 

Our eye stick can be used daily and is easy to roll on (we told you, with the flick of a wrist). Here’s what’s inside our eye stick that makes it amazing.

  • Pycnogenol. This plant-based extract helps brighten the skin, erasing dark circles and helping even out skin tone. Skin under your eyes begins to look healthier and looks the same as the skin on your cheeks. 

    This pine tree extract is also a powerful antioxidant, which helps protect your skin from oxidative stress (aka free radical damage). Antioxidants work as a shield, protecting your healthy skin cells from free radicals. 
  • Niacinamide. A type of vitamin B3, this ingredient is not only skin brightening, it helps fade fine lines and wrinkles and prevent them from forming. Niacinamide is also an expert ingredient for smoothing the skin and helping improve overall texture. 

    This ingredient helps transform the skin under your eyes, helping it go from dark and dull to clarified and bright. 
  • Caffeine. Caffeine is extremely beneficial to your skin when applied topically, but before you go smearing coffee grinds on your face, you should know you need it as a standalone ingredient in your eye care products. 

    Caffeine helps to shrink and tighten skin, making puffy eyes less noticeable and making it harder for blood and fluid to collect under your eyes causing dark circles.

    Caffeine also has a calming, soothing effect on your skin, which can feel incredibly refreshing if your under-eye skin is also dry, irritated, and peeling. 

You need great eye care for those dark circles, but you need good skin care for that dull complexion. 

Let’s Disco

You can shop around, or you can go straight to the source of men’s skin care and level up your game with Disco. Our starter set has all the products you need to keep your skin bright, youthful, and healthy. 

  • Face Cleanser Stick. Our cleansing stick glides on easily and lathers up quickly. Natural charcoal absorbs impurities while coconut oil keeps your skin touchably smooth and soft. 
  • Exfoliating Face Scrub. If you aren’t exfoliating, you should be. Nothing keeps your skin more youthful and healthful than removing the top layer of dead skin cells and deep cleaning your pores. Our face scrub contains aloe to help the entire sloughing process go smoothly and without causing irritation. 
  • Hydrating Face Moisturizer. It’s everything your skin needs to prepare for its day. Our face moisturizer is packed with wrinkle-fighting macadamia nut oil, brightening vitamin C, and antioxidant-rich vitamin E to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth, and deeply hydrated. 

If you’re tired of dealing with dark circles and dull skin, take care of it. Get a skin care routine fit for a king and stay sexy, friends.
