2020 is a year of many new normals.
The face masks we know of are no longer applied before you sleep, but worn at all times as long as you’re outdoors. If you’re looking to hang out with 5 of your best friends, ala Friends, it’s not going to happen outdoors for the foreseeable future.
Throw in the 10.30 pm curfew (essentially 7 pm on a Friday night) and working from home in your PJs a daily affair, and that pretty much sums up our pandemic-stricken 2020.
While working from home comes with perks like not having to wake up 2 hours early to put on your face, it also means we’re allowed to watch just an extra couple of that latest K-drama on Netflix. And another couple more. And a final couple more.
With our body clocks all out of wack and sleep becoming more like a couple of naps combined, a couple of unwelcome visitors will come a-knocking on your skin – and it might get ugly.

Dark Eye Circles and Eyebags… Why
Fatigue is the most common cause of dark circles and eyebags under your eyes. Sometimes, what appears to be dark circles under your eyes may merely be shadows cast by puffy eyelids or hollows under your eyes that develop as a normal part of aging.
The older we get, the more susceptible we are too dark eye circles and all of the other unsavory skin-toms that accompany it.
Flawless skin requires a healthy amount of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to sustain.
As we grow older, the production levels of these components start to wane, and our skin starts to lose its hydration and vigor. This is when the signs of aging start creeping in, dark eye circles included. The puffy eyebags that made you look like you’ve cried for 2 hours straight also comes as a part of that package.
A “security breach” on our skin, if you will. Fear not, I’ve got just the solution(s) for you.
