This might come as a surprise, but allergies are linked to accelerating many age symptoms, such as dark circles under the eyes. We’ve been taught that dark circles equal lack of sleep, but that’s not the only reason. The skin around your eyes is very delicate and if you’re one that is prone to allergies, you might have to start investing in a quality eye treatment.
As you age the skin around your eyes gets thinner because it’s losing fat and the collagen starts decreasing. The veins become more prominent and dark circles start to form. Very dark under eyes are more often than not a sign of allergies. Here a 3 tips to manage your allergies and ensure you’re not aging any faster than nature ended you to!
1. Use an extra pillow!
There’s a reason it’s called “Beauty Sleep”. This is a time where you can be changing your skin for the better. Elevating your head a few extra inches will prevent fluids from pooling beneath the eyes while you sleep. Make sure you use a satin pillow case to reduce friction that causes wrinkles and sagging skin.
2. Groom your pets!
There may be a link between your allergy symptoms and your pets, and while we are not suggesting you get rid of your furry friends, taking them to the groomers once a week will reduce the amount of dander and pollen in their fur.
3. Invest in an air purifier!
Though they may be on the pricy side, air purifiers can filter out allergens like mold, pollen, and pet dander. They have even been proven to improve sleep quality, which will also help you fight aging skin.
