Now unless you are a black and white native from the Sichuan province and weigh 200 pounds, no one is going to look good with dark eye circles. Dark eye circles tend to add years, making one tired and sickly looking. Our undereyes are riddled with a web of tiny capillaries which can lead to dark circles when they become leaky. As red blood cells leak from these capillaries into the surrounding skin, a dark discoloration is formed when the haemoglobin in them are being broken down.Furthermore, thinning of the overlying skin and hollowing of the undereyes worsen the look of this darkened hue. Some may be inflicted with inherent skin pigmentation while others may be predisposed with exacerbating factors such as eczema and chronic sinusitis that lead to constant or habitual rubbing of eyes.From camouflaging with clever make-up tips to real time skin resurfacing, here’s ReadySetBeauty top 5 picks to help bid goodbye to panda eyes.

Post therapy, the treated areas will appear slightly swollen and reddish for the first 12 to 24 hours and gradually subside over the next day.From day 3 to 5, there’s browning of the overlying skin, drying and flakiness.

The improvement experienced will continue over the next 2 to 4 weeks and the effects will be accumulative if resurfacing is repeated at 4 to 6 weekly interval as a standalone treatment or paired with Neogen Plasma in the Miracle Eye Reviver Program.
