If you’ve ever attempted to brighten dark, tired eyes, you’ll know it can be an arduous task. So what’s to blame, what should be avoided and how can you make tired eyes look fresh again.


As we’ve heard time and again “You are what you eat”. The largest organ in the body is our skin – so what you put in is going to be reflected on the outside. One of the biggest culprits is alcohol, so if you’ve been overindulging it’s time to take a break! The best foods for tackling dark circles are those rich in Iron, Vitamin A, C, E and K. As a general life rule, always remember to stay hydrated.


If you haven’t been clocking up your 8 hours sleep, your eyes can be a dead giveaway.

Sleep deprivation can mean your eyes aren’t as wide, bright or clear so if you haven’t been getting the recommended amount of shut-eye it’s time you started to think about the quality and quantity of your sleep routine.



The skin under the eyes is super gentle, so allergies and excessive eye rubbing can cause thickening and darkening in the area.


Genetics can also be a cause for dark circles. Pale, thin skin can reveal blood vessels under the eyes, leaving you with a reddish-purple hue showing through. The natural progression of life can also take its toll on your appearance and as the collagen and elastin in our skin decreases, the results are hollowed shadows under the eyes.


It’s not always possible to fully remove dark circles but SKYN® can be your best defence in minimising their appearance. To obtain these results we may use topical treatments, injectables or lasers.

One of our most effective treatments of dark circles is Tear Trough Fillers

SKYN’s Tear Trough Filler can completely transform a clients face from tired and sunken to looking bright, refreshed and awake.
