Creams or Serums: What Is Better for Dark Circles?

Creams or Serums: What Is Better for Dark Circles?

Nov 19, 2021

The area under the eyes is the most sensitive zone on our face as the skin there is thinner and more prone to the appearance of various imperfections. By the way, dynamic wrinkles are the first to appear under the eyes. However, fine lines and wrinkles are not the only problems that may encounter this fragile zone. Dark circles and bags under the eyes are even worse and more noticeable enemies of beautiful, young, and fresh appearance.

The market offers various solutions for brightening dark circles, where facial creams and serums are one of the most available remedies for home skincare. Let us figure out which product (cream or serum) is more effective for treating dark circles.

Causes of Dark Circles and Bags Under the Eyes

Causes of Dark Circles and Bags Under the Eyes

There are various reasons why dark eye circles may appear on the face. Circles under the eyes may appear due to the anatomical features of this area. The skin here is thin, and a dense venous network approaches it. The layer of connective tissue between them is almost absent – there are almost no elastin and collagen fibers. The problem of dark circles can occur due to thinning of the skin or problems with the venous vessels that are under it. Here are the main reasons why this can happen:

  • chronic stress;
  • constant lack of sleep;
  • long work behind the monitor;
  • fatigue;
  • features of the diet: a lot of spices, abuse of coffee and canned food;
  • smoking;
  • dehydration.

Dark circles are almost always accompanied by age-related changes. This is due to the thinning and sagging of the skin in the lower eyelid – the effect of bags under the eyes because of this only intensifies.

Also, dark circles under the eyes can appear in a number of diseases: pathology of the cardiovascular system, diseases of the kidneys, liver, and other organs, cholecystitis, and pancreatitis. In these cases, the manifestations of the underlying disease come to the fore, dark circles are only a cosmetic symptom.

How to Choose Creams for Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

If you find out that dull dark skin, bags, and circles under the eyes, are not harbingers of severe diseases of internal organs, then professional creams can easily cope with these problems. You can choose them by examining the composition:

  • hydrolyzed proteins;
  • dextrin;
  • allantoin;
  • plant extracts (algae, cornflower, chamomile);
  • panthenol;
  • azulene;
  • thiamine;
  • riboflavin;
  • soybean oil;
  • panthenol.
  • Vitamin K, C;
  • UV filters.

These are the main ingredients in the composition of skincare products that help brighten dark circles under the eyes, strengthening the skin fibers, boosting elastin and collagen production, deeply hydrating the dermal tissues, and lightening the skin from inside.

Of course, no matter what problem you face, whether it is under-eye circles or aging skin, it is advisable to choose cosmetics together with a cosmetology specialist who will choose for you remedies suitable for your age, skin type, and problems your skin faces as the improperly selected cosmetics may harm you even more than no facial care at all.

How to Choose Serums for Dark Circles?

The eye serum is a unique remedy that will help you quickly restore radiance to tired eyes, fade dark circles, and even smooth out fine wrinkles. Due to its nutritional composition, the serum does its job much better and faster than the same cream. Not surprisingly, the serum has become so popular among women who look after their appearance and want to always remain beautiful.

When choosing a serum, it is very important to pay attention to its composition. The best remedy would be one that contains only natural ingredients. Serums are qualified according to the skin-related problems they fight. Products with vitamins, retinol, hyaluronic acid, and collagen are the best to treat dark circles, improve skin tope and even deeper wrinkles. Once again, it will be better if you ask for a help of a specialist when choosing products for your daily skincare routine.

Under-Eye Creams vs. Serums: What Is Better?

Many people do not use facial serums. Some people deny the necessity of using under-eye creams. But when we see circles, first wrinkles, or other imperfections in this delicate under-eye area, they start thinking about an effective way to reduce puffiness and improve skin tone under the eyes. So, what to choose between creams for dark circles and serums?

Under-eye serums possess light water or gel texture, and the ingredients in their composition have lighter molecular weight what makes it easier for them to penetrate the dermal tissue. The creams have a higher density that helps them to create a perfect skin barrier able to retain the moisture inside the dermal tissues. Both serums and creams have different functions and should be chosen in correspondence with the patients’ skin types.

Thus, if you are an owner of a dry skin type, you can incorporate both cream and serum into your daily skincare routine for additional hydration and prevention of the appearance of fine lines. Oily and combined types of skin, on the contrary, may get along with a single product, either cream or serum, depending on your individual preferences.

The Bottom Line

Thin skin in the under-eye area demands special care and love. When choosing a perfect product to nourish, hydrate, and brighten the sensitive skin under the eyes, first of all, pay attention to its composition. Hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid should be compulsory constituents of creams and serums for thinning skin and mature skin. It will promote collagen production, constrict blood vessels, improve skin’s elasticity, and improve the overall complexion, eliminating under-eye circles. Of course, you should take care of your lifestyle: correct your diet, get enough sleep and risk, spend time outdoors, and check up on your health for the best result.

Both creams and serums are suitable for these tender area, but just a professional and experienced doctor will manage to select for you one or a combination of products that will show real results. So, do not try to save money on your skin and visit a doctor. Remember that bad skincare may be even worse than no care at all!
