3 Common undereye conditions and how to improve them

One of the most frequently discussed topics when it comes to skincare are all concerns surrounding the under eye area (no pun intended). Everything from how to care for the skin around the eyes, to particular concerns and the limitations of topical skincare when it comes to this area are topics highly sought after and we hope to shed some light on these.... (we're holding back a joke about bringing your sunglasses).


One of the most common areas of concern when it comes to the under area is milia. Milia describes the small white bumps that appear on the underage area, or other areas of the face or skin that emerge as a result of a blocked hair follicle, or skin duct. They typically don't pop (it's like a pimple), but it's been said they can go away on their own, but a good way to try and avoid these is by abstaining from use of heavy creams that could potentially clog the ducts in this sensitive area. 

Fine Lines

Crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes are inevitable challenge time gives us all to face. Fine lines appear as a result of sun damage or volume loss. Most treatments for fine lines are preventative as well as reparative. The key to helping minimize fine lines around the hydrate; which also includes drinking water apart from making sure to use a hydrating eye cream. Retinol helps with collagen production, makes dark circles less noticeable and hyularonic acid is best for hydration.


Excess fluid under the tissue of the eyes is cause for puffiness. Factors that can cause this cognition include luck of sleep, or diet. Allergies can also cause the edema (under-eye swelling). Factors like aging and herniation in this area are harder to correct. These can be best aided by using red or colour creator underneath the eye prior to applying your favorite concealer. 

We can conclude that safest and best practice to void any kind of under eye conditions would be to stay hydrate, avoid using eye creams that are too heavy, cleansing the face after workouts/sweating, and getting plenty of sleep!
