Circles under the eyes can be very unpleasant for the patient after a night out or due to anatomical conditions. There are several possibilities to conceal dark circles, which are explained in the text below.
Conceal dark circles around the eyes with make-up for men
Many patients suffer from rings under the eyes, which they would like to conceal. Circles under the eyes can appear in different forms. In some patients, the bags under the eyes swell up at night, making the face look completely swollen the next morning.
This type of dark circles is difficult to conceal with make-up because the make-up covers the dark circles, but the bags under the eyes continue to appear. However, if a patient suffers from dark or slightly bluish dark circles under the eyes, make-up can be used to conceal them very well. Even if men do not like to cover dark circles under the eyes with make-up, it is a good alternative and can be the best solution for dark circles under the eyes.
To conceal dark circles under the eyes with make-up, it is important to match the make-up to the skin color. By first applying the make-up to the surface of the hand, the patient can determine whether the make-up matches the skin color and is not unpleasantly noticeable. However, the tendency is that the make-up can be a little lighter than the actual skin type, since the rings under the eyes have a dark color and therefore the make-up has to be adjusted. It is best to use a so-called concealer as it is very covering and can therefore conceal the dark circles very well.
Conceal dark circles without make-up for men
Beside the possibility to conceal the dark circles with make-up there is also the possibility to conceal the dark circles without make-up. This possibility is especially useful for the reduction of dark circles, not only to conceal them. Besides, it is not very helpful with thick bags under the eyes to load additional make-up on them.
Therefore it is important to be able to conceal the dark circles around the eyes without make-up. Here there are different possibilities, which are especially popular with men. On the one hand it is important to avoid certain risk factors.
Every patient needs sufficient sleep, a sufficient amount of drinking and thus enough fluid intake and furthermore the patient should not consume too much alcohol. If these things are observed, the patient has the possibility to conceal the dark circles around the eyes without using make-up and thus get a good grip on them. It is also important for patients who smoke a lot to avoid cigarettes, as nicotine can discolour the skin and cause dark circles under the eyes.
However, some patients have formed large bags under the eyes due to stress and anatomical conditions alone, which cannot be easily controlled with a good lifestyle. These lachrymal sacs are mainly skin overlaps filled with liquid and/or fat. In the end, the only thing that can be done is the cosmetic removal of these bags so that the dark circles under the eyes are completely covered, even without make-up.
Beforehand, one can also try to remove the bags under the eyes with the help of laser technology in order to permanently conceal the dark circles. In some cases, it also helps to treat the thick bags under the eyes with a cool spoon or a cool pack in the morning, which leads to a reduction of swelling and thus the dark circles are concealed without make-up. This method is especially helpful if the dark circles are caused by a night of crying and are therefore mainly caused by swelling.
A frequently seen method to conceal dark circles without make-up is the application of cucumber slices to the eyes. The liquid of the cucumber is supposed to pass into the skin and make it more vital and elastic, which can lead to a reduction of dark circles around the eyes. Cotton wool pads soaked with yoghurt are also said to have a similar effect, although the effect only occurs with light dark circles under the eyes, but not with pronounced dark circles.
Rosemary is said to improve blood circulation and thus reduce dark circles under the eyes. To do this, pour hot water over rosemary and leave it in a small bowl until the water is only lukewarm. Then you soak cotton wool pads with this water and put them on your eye for a few minutes.
This is supposed to improve the blood circulation and thus conceal the rings under the eyes even without make-up. In addition, the consumption of fresh fruit should help, whereby a healthy and rich diet is generally recommended. A further possibility to conceal the dark circles around the eyes without make-up, which is especially interesting for men, is a cooling pencil, which looks similar to a small deodorant. You can buy this roller pen in the pharmacy or in drugstores. It contains moisturising components and also ensures that the rings under the eyes are slightly cooled and thus well concealed.
