Chat to any woman at 8:21am on a Monday morning and there’s a good chance she’ll bring up her dark circles and under eyes.
Under eye bags, eye bags, dark circles… whatever you call yours, they’re not very nice. They’re also stubborn and don’t always cheer up after a good night’s sleep like they should.
But did you know dark circles and under eye bags are not the same thing? That they’re two very different conditions?
We didn’t either until we saw this helpful video from Sali Hughes Beauty.
In a Q&A about all things skin, the British beauty journalist sat New York dermatologist Dr Dennis Gross down on a couch and got him to answer her followers’ skincare questions.
The 36-minute interview covers everything from bacne and dermarolling to wrinkles and exfoliation. But possibly the biggest (and most practical) advice came up in response to a question about how to get rid of dark circles and under eye bags.
“The truth of the matter is, there’s two basic categories[talking about dark circles and bags] – one is actual pigmentation in the skin, the other is skin that’s thin and shows the dark veins and fat pads underneath… they’re two problems,” Dr Gross tells Hughes.
You can listen to Dr Dennis Gross’ dark circle and under eye bag advice in the Sali Hughes beauty video below. Post continues after video.
