Myth Busters

Myth: Late Nights = Dark Under Eye Circles

With so many demands on our time (holiday parties, gift wrapping, baking cookies for your neighbors, etc.) a good night of sleep can elude us during the holidays. And the result is staring back at us in the mirror every morning. We’re all too familiar with the look. Dark circles show up under your eyes. And these circles become more pronounced with alcohol or caffeine consumption due to greater water retention and even more pronounced as we age and skin slackens. The good news is that everyone doesn’t need to know you’re burning the midnight oil to pull off the perfect holiday. Sleep with your head propped up on a pillow to help with circulation and apply compresses /ice packs to your eyes to reduce swelling in the morning.
