The specificities of the eye contour

The eye area, also called the pre-orbital area , is the area where the skin is thinnest on the face, three to five times thinner

It is very often at this level of the face that we can find the main signs of aging, fatigue, dark circles, fine lines, more or less marked wrinkles and bags.

Indeed, repeated mechanical movements of the eyelids can lead to the appearance of signs of the times more or less early depending on the person.

These muscles are located under the eye: a very vascularized area, abundantly provided with blood vessels and arteries.

Dark circles, their colors and their meaning

Blue circles

THE blue circles are the most widespread and affect all age groups and genders. But good news: they are also the easiest to mitigate. THE blue circles are mainly caused by the transparency of the skin and the presence of small blood vessels. These vessels are depleted of oxygen, which is the origin of this bluish color.

THE blue circles also have other, more “broader” causes such as poor lifestyle , including lack of sleep, stress , the fatigue , as well as alcohol and tobacco consumption. These factors can be responsible for blood circulation problems leading to the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes.

THE stress can cause lymphatic fluid to build up under the eyelids, causing puffy eyes and dark circles. Regarding tobacco, it hinders the circulation of fluids, which causes edema under the skin and weakens the area under the eye.

Alcohol, on the other hand, promotes water retention, which can lead to swelling under the eyes, which can then lead to the appearance of bags under the eyes in situations of stress and anxiety.

Brown dark circles, also called dark circles , darken the glance . They are linked to a significant accumulation of pigments (melanin) located under the eye contour. There are hereditary predispositions for this type of dark circles, they are found in particular among people with dark skin, of origin from the Maghreb, India, Pakistan, South-East Asia, etc.

Using illuminating concealer products can be a good solution to reduce this type of dark circles and enhance the light around the glance .

THE purplish dark circles or dark red color can be caused by several factors such as water retention or poor blood circulation or even significant fatigue.

Puffy dark circles

They are due to the formation of a small subpalpebraal edema generally whitish in color.

Hollow dark circles

These dark circles are mainly the result of aging facial tissues. With age, there is a reduction in muscle and fat mass around the eye, particularly in the inner corner near the levator ala muscle, creating an inverted V-shaped hollow. Conversely, in younger people, this area is naturally more filled with fat, which has the effect of filling this hollow.
