The eyes are the reflection of the soul And when we’re tired, they don’t hesitate for a second to give us away. When we sleep poorly, spend many hours in front of the screen or rest little, our body manifests it in the form of bags and dark circles, which are not easy to eliminate.
Makeup can give us a hand, although they do not completely hide them and there are many cosmetics that are not used every day.they miraculously promise to make them disappear, They don’t always get it and we are left with the feeling of having wasted money for little (or no) result.
So that this does not happen to us again, we have spoken with Mar Sánchez Orduña, expert in natural cosmetics and creator of Wild Rain, to explain everything we need to know to detect, prevent and reduce bags and dark circles.
“The area around the eyes is one of the most sensitive on our face and we must take care of it because, since it does not contain fatty tissue, it is a very sensitive skin. thinner and prone to the appearance of wrinklescrow’s feet or the dreaded bags and dark circles,” says the expert.
What are dark circles and how to identify the causes that produce them
Mar Sánchez describes dark circles as “an alteration in the color of the eye contour, caused by a excessive production of melanin and dilation of the capillaries, giving us an appearance of tiredness and sadness that is far removed from the canons of beauty”.
Regarding the main causes of dark circles, the expert indicates that “dark circles can be genetic, in this case little can be done, since the hyperpigmentation of the area is due to genetic factors inherited from our relatives. Faced with this type of dark circle is recommended drink plenty of water, eat a healthy diet, and exercise, in addition to taking care of the area with specific products for it. There are also dark circles caused by lack of rest, the passage of time, dehydration, excessive sun exposure, poor nutrition or even the abusive use of screens.

What are bags and what are the causes that produce them?
“The bags usually appear when the skin in the area under the eye is weakened and, therefore, the fat that we have around it tends to move. They can also be caused by a small fluid retention in the area. This affectation makes us look tired, aged and sad,” says Sánchez Orduña.
