Condition :

Dark circles and hollows


What are they ?

Whether considered normal or premature, the aging process involves a reduced production of collagen and elastin. There is also a loss of fat on the face that gives it a less smooth and toned appearance. As a result, the cheekbones lose their fullness and the lips become thinner; the area under the eyes sinks deeper and becomes tougher, accentuating the sagging of the skin.

What are the causes?

Several causes can explain the appearance of dark circles and hollows:

The natural aging process

There's nothing we can do about it! Over time, the skin dries out, the natural production of collagen and elastin slows down, facial muscles lose their tone and cell renewal decreases: all of these factors explain the loss of volume that occurs. In addition, the reduction in subcutaneous fat volume accentuates the hollows of certain areas of the face, such as dark circles and the nasolabial fold.

Sun exposure

Exposure to the sun, especially if not accompanied by adequate UV protection, leads to an increase in melanin production, a reduction in collagen and elastin production, a thickening of certain areas of the skin and a clear promotion of the drying process of the skin. Gradually, the structure of the skin changes.

Lack of sleep

Like every part of the body, the epidermis also needs to recover from everything it has gone through during the day! And for good reason: during sleep, collagen synthesis and blood flow increase. It’s at 1 a.m. that skin regenerates best and skin cells multiply...Its good health is therefore at its maximum, thanks to restorative sleep.
