Everything about winter is fierce, from the frigid, whipping wind to the frenzied holiday shoppers shoving their way through crowds in search of the perfect gift. Not surprising that the look of the season follows suit—with bold colors blasting away the boring browns and burnt umbers of autumn and striking, shimmery accents signaling true style in the sea of black coats and boots.
Q: What can I do to get rid of dark circles under my eyes?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
It happens to the best of us—our lives get busy, and we skimp on sleep, eat a less-than-stellar diet and let stress get out of hand. Besides affecting how we feel and our overall health, rough times can take a toll on physical appearance. And one of the first places it starts to show is under our eyes.
“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
~Henry David Thoreau
I had LASIK surgery 14 years ago. Loved it. There was nothing quite like coming out of it being able to see clearly and beautifully. For awhile.
My vision regressed (it happens to a small percentage of people), so I went back to my eye surgeon. He explained what happened and offered to do it again for half the price.
Now I’m wicked into bargaining and haggling (I love yard sales and street sales and flea markets), but lemme tell ya something, I won’t bargain and haggle when it comes to my eyes.
Q. I’m a new mom and I am not getting ANY sleep. I have these awful dark circles under my eyes that I never had before. Is there a way I can look less exhausted?
Dr. Linda Miles L. Ac., D.O.M. responds:
One of the most common questions I get asked is, “how do I get rid of dark under-eye circles?”
First and foremost, we need to understand why those dark circles appear. Basically, they are calling out an internal imbalance that needs to be corrected. You cannot get rid of dark under-eye circles completely until you identify this imbalance and correct it.
