Conversations with an Estetician- Dark Circles

Conversations with an Estetician- Dark Circles

Hi everyone, Tina here (+1 662 830 8246,

Well I just had a great WhatsApp chat with Ella. She is interviewed in our book, Skincare Collective- Conversations with Friends: From all natural skincare to the impact of social media in the beauty industry.  - you buy the book start to read it.  

Chapter 1 of the Skincare Collective

This is some casual feedback that I just had to share from Ella Motely, for a potential Formule de Soin client. and some professional feedback for your dark circles around the eyes. My client asked, Tina- I need help, I've had these dark circles under my eyes for years and nothing is working. What causes them and how do you get rid of them or reduce them! 

Dark circles have many causes.

Usually, it's because the skin is thinning, and you are now seeing the blood vessels.
In that case, using an eye cream that rebuilds collagen will help a lot.
Plus doing light lymph drainage movements even applying it helps to flush out garbage that may be stuck in that area.
If it is pigmentation, then an eye treatment that has brightening agents in there would help.
Doing eye treatments at the clinic/spa or at home will help for both.
Sometimes medication or lack of sleep can cause dark circles too.
Be sure to use sunglasses to avoid sun damage to that delicate skin too.

I believe anyone can benefit from this info but we are looking at people that are probably 30+ as they would be able to pay into it
One more thing, if people want quick results to cure dark circles, under eye fillers is amazing as an on-the-spot cure.
I'm not for injectables but that's the quick fix that I least recommend
Two more things about the eye area. I can go on for days.
Do not rub the eyes (ex when sleepy) it breaks down the fibers and blood vessels.
Use cold compresses on the eyes when masking. 

Ella is about to launch her course on Formule De Soin and the site should be live in early 2023. 

 Tonight I also spoke to our Ai machine and this is what it said... but for the time being I'll stick with Ella! 

how do i fix dark circles around my eyes- (note* Ai generated response).

Dark circles around the eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, allergies, lack of sleep, and stress. Here are a few tips that may help reduce the appearance of dark circles:

Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep can cause puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.

Stay hydrated: Dehydration can also cause puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin and eyes hydrated.

Manage allergies: Allergies can cause dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. If you think your dark circles may be caused by allergies, talk to your doctor about taking an antihistamine or other treatment.

Apply cold compresses: Cold compresses can help constrict blood vessels and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Place a cold compress (such as a chilled tea bag or cold cucumber slices) over your closed eyes for 10-15 minutes.

Consider using makeup: Concealer can be used to camouflage dark circles. Look for concealers that have a yellow or peach undertone to neutralize the blue/purple tones of dark circles.

Use of Eye creams: Eye creams with ingredients like Vitamin K and Retinol can help in lightening dark circles. But do a patch test before application to see if the cream is causing any irritation.

Consult with a dermatologist: If the dark circles are persistent and not getting better with the above remedies, It is good idea to consult with a dermatologist, as there could be other underlying issues causing dark circles like eczema, pigmentation or even thyroid issues.

It's worth noting that some people may have dark circles permanently, because of genetics or other factors that can't be changed. In this case, there are still some ways to camouflage them with makeup and or skincare products that may help with reducing the appearance of dark circles.
