“ 50 shades of dark circles under my eyes ” – Quote by an unknown source.

Anything we consume or apply topically can have an adverse reaction/side effects, and the reaction is subjective differing from person to person. In this blog, we are looking at under eye creams and if they have any side effects. Well, yes, they can and yes, they do depend on its composition and ingredients. So, let us examine the 4 potential ingredients that may not be good for you.

Here is a list of some ingredients which may result in side effects:

  1. Mild acids – It’s rarely known that some under Eye Cream for Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes may contain mild acids as an ingredient. Read the manufacturer labelling as well as instructions to follow. You could do your own research via search engines as well. Some creams state their mild burning is proof that the cream is working. It's entirely your call, your decision to continue or stop the product totally.
  2. Vitamin K – Its deficiency is a common cause of under-eye circles which causes anguish to many and heartache as well. This vitamin strengthens veins and capillaries in the body. It encourages the healthy circulation of blood and is also vital for blood clotting. If the levels of this vitamin are low, capillaries may weaken and leak. Hence leading to dark circles forming under the eye where the tissues are the thinnest and need maximum protection. Besides being an ingredient in creams, it can be eaten in the form of spinach, kale, avocado, Brussels sprouts (dark green and leafy veggies). However, it can cause allergy in some though it is mostly for those who take it in the form of a supplement or even as an injection.
  3. Hydroquinone – A bleaching agent to reduce the visibility of dark circles, age spots, discolouration, or freckles. If not used in the right way, it can lead to either hyper and hypopigmentation. Unfortunately, both conditions are permanent skin discolourations. So, it would be wise to consider the same before taking the leap of faith.
  4. Retinol - A compound which is a derivative of Vitamin A is commonly used under eye cream for dark circles. It has been reported to cause skin irritation in some cases. In some cases, the skin adjusts to the cream over a period of time, in some cases it does not. Therefore, it is best not to use such a cream that contains Retinol.
