Dating With Masks - Remove Those Dark Eye Circles

Dating with masks has its challenges. With the bottom half of our faces covered, our eyes become the focal point of our date’s gaze, more so than before. But having dark eye circles can make us look old and tired.

What are Dark Circles and How Do They Appear?

Dark eye circles are frequently accompanied by e  and can be caused by a multitude of factors.


Sleep deprivation will result in a lack of circulation in the blood vessels, causing the skin to look dull and pale. This results in the capillaries beneath your skin becoming more visible, which in turn causes dark circles around your eyes.


As one gets older, there is a loss of fat and collagen in the skin. This decrease in skin elasticity and increase in translucency makes the dark blood vessels beneath your skin more visible. This also causes dark circles to form around your eyes.


The flesh between the skin and bone in your eye area is very thin. When your body is not getting sufficient water, the skin begins to dull and your eyes will look sunken as the skin shrivels up.


After focusing intensely on activities such as reading or watching videos on your phone, the strain on the blood vessels surrounding your eyes can cause them to enlarge. As a result of enlarged capillaries, the surrounding skin will darken.

Overexposure to the sun

Prolonged exposure to the sun will cause an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that darkens your skin, hair and eyes. Too much sun can produce more melanin and cause pigmentation in the area surrounding your eyes.


Dark eye circles can also be a sign of an allergic reaction. During an allergic reaction, histamines are produced. Histamines cause the capillaries near your eyes to dilate and become more visible, forming dark eye circles.


Last but not least, genetics play a part in our appearance and you may have periorbital hyperpigmentation, a genetic condition that causes dark circles to form around your eyes.

Get Rid of Dark Circles at Home

Cold compress

There are a few ways to combat dark eye circles and make your eyes more expressive for your date. Applying a cold compress to your eyes is a common home remedy. The cold compress will shrink dilated dark blood vessels and make them less visible underneath the skin. Some people also use ice cubes wrapped in a clean cloth or even cold cucumber slices to reduce dark eye circles.


This is a seemingly unusual remedy, but many people swear by cold tea bags. The caffeine and antioxidants in the tea bags will stimulate blood circulation and shrink dilated blood vessels to reduce the appearance of dark circles.

Sufficient sleep

Get sufficient sleep when you can – this means not staying up too late or even oversleeping. Getting an adequate amount of rest will ensure your skin remains radiant and healthy.
