I’d consider myself a fairly “healthy” person. I think there are a variety of ways to define a healthy lifestyle–but I do my best to eat right (who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies?), take care of my body (and skin!), exercise regularly, and practice stress relief on a fairly regular basis. With that being said, life has its moments, and no matter how hard we try to#LiveBeautyFull–life sometimes just happens…taking a toll on our skin.
…and just when you think you’ve got it all together, the dark circles can creep up on you in a moments notice. Here are a few reasons you might just want to keep Pevonia’s NEW EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment handy…even if you think you’ve got it all under control:
You Don’t Get Enough Sleep At Night
If you’re like me, getting the recommended 7 hours of sleep each night can be a challenge…and I don’t even have children (shout-out to all of the Mom’s out there)! While my excuses for not getting to bed early aren’t always legitimate (late night Netflix binges, social media browsing, or just plain boredom ?) my post-work routine often leaves little time to head to bed early. In a 2013 study, 40% of Americans report getting less than the recommended amount of sleep each night—up from the 11% in 1942…so there’s a good chance here in 2017 about half of you reading this aren’t getting enough sleep.
In addition, if you’re finding yourself face down on a pillow each night (even if you are getting the recommended amount) there’s a good chance you too will be waking up with dark circles!
You Spend Too Much Time In The Sun
While you may think that a healthy glow would look great on your skin…your delicate eye area will suffer from lack of sun protection. Sun exposure will draw melanin to your skin surface, which will, in turn, make them appear darker.
You Don’t Drink Enough Water…and You Need To Go Easy On the Coffee & Alcohol
This is my #1 fight with dark circles. First of all, I love coffee…and won’t get through my day without it. However, as much as it will “mentally” wake me up…it won’t keep my skin hydrated. I also often forget to hydrate, and not to mention throwing alcohol into the mix. I’ve never been a big “fan” of water, so I struggle to stay hydrated properly. Try flavoring water, amping up your daily hydration, and reducing your alcohol/coffee intake to keep those eyes looking #BeautyFull.
Dark Circles Are In Your Genes
If you’re practicing good sleep habits, staying well hydrated, and protecting your eye contour from the sun but still suffering from dark circles…you might have the problem by way of your genes. While you can find ways to improve the appearance of the circles, they’ll still be present.
You’re Stressed Out
We’ve all had those situations where no matter how hard we try, stress is inevitable. We’re rushing to complete our next big project at work, worried about a family member or loved one, or just overwhelmed with everything life has thrown at us. We try really hard to find ways to de-stress (I’m a fan of yoga, days at the spa, or a night out with the girls), but stress can sometimes get the best of us…and our skin.
You’re Rubbing Too Hard
Did you know that rubbing your eyes from allergies, or from removing your makeup can cause dark circles? That’s right! Talk to your doctor about properly treating your allergies, and be sure to use a gentle eye makeup remover like this one.
You’re Getting Older (Who Isn’t?)
This is a hard one to swallow. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and more fragile as we lose collagen. The loss of collagen and thinning of our skin causes for a more visible appearance of the bluish veins underneath your eyes. Did you know that collagen loss…begins in our 20’s? If you haven’t already, finding a moisturizer that helps rebuild collagen is vital!
So if you’re tired of looking…well, tired…and you don’t want to get show up to work looking like a raccoon…then you need our new EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment right now.
Stress, lack of sleep, and other factors (that we can’t always control) affect our lives, and unfortunately, how our skin reacts! …and maybe you’re not one of the above mentioned (cheers to you), but I’d still tell you to pick one up! Why? Because it’s time to upgrade your boring concealer. Pevonia’s EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment acts as a concealer AND skincare repair product. Its self-adjusting oil-free mineral tint conceals dark circles and diminishes redness while also smoothing lines and wrinkles at the same time with just one application.
Perfect for on-the-go, Pevonia’s EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age Treatment is small enough to be packed in a purse or clutch, is a super quick fix for whenever your eyes need a pick me up, and will leave you looking instantly refreshed with a squeeze. You may not get the best sleep or feel your best, but with this amazing new Pevonia eye concealer…there is no excuse not to look it!
