Looking in the mirror and seeing tired, dark under eyes can be at best disheartening and at worst distressing for some of us. Many factors contribute to dark circles, lack of water intake, lack of sleep, stress or genetics. Sometimes it feels as though nothing you do makes any difference though. This is when people start looking into trying to cover the darkness. Walking into either a high street or a make-up shop can be pretty overwhelming with the choice of products and concealers promising all sorts. If you're a guy it can be even more overwhelming and embarrasing for some.
Concealers come in many types and shades offering everything from light reflextion to complete cover but finding the right one for you in the middle of a shop can be near impossible.
One option, unkown to many, are Skin Camouflage Creams. These medical grade, highly pigmented creams are available in hundreds of shades to suit all skin tones and are for eveyone regardless of age or gender. Sometimes finding a skin match is enough to cover under eye darkness. If not, a corrective colour can be mixed in to neutralise the darkness. This means as little product as possible is used which is always a good idea when dealing with the under eye area. For female clients who wear make-up the creams can be used on top of Foundation but for those who don't and for male clients who don't, they can be used alone. The creams are long lasting and waterproof. They don't contain any of the 'extras' make-up often contains and so won't cause irritation to the sensitive under eye area.
If Skin Camouflage Creams sound like something you would like to try out for your under eye area, consultations are available in Clapham and Harley Street Monday to Saturday. Please get in touch for more information or to book an appointment.
