Pack Your Bags, Bags

Dark Circles

The inevitable creatures who are there when you need them least. And don’t you worry, just like your great aunt during the holidays, she packed her puffy travel bags and is here to stay awhile. (But the dark circles didn’t bring pie, boo!)

Dark circles can come from an array of causes, and the best way to banish them is to prevent them from occurring. Let’s look closer…


As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, thinning our skin. For the already thin skin around the eyes, this causes the dark blood vessels beneath your skin to become more prominent, therefore your under eyes appear dark.

Lifestyle Cure:
While we can’t go back in time, we can start now by treating this area delicately to prevent premature aging. Don’t tug or pull on your skin and always apply products using the middle finger to delicately tap-apply products.

Crow Catcher® - this peptide blend left participants in our clinical trial with —a 58% reduction in the look of wrinkles (hello young eyes)!


When your body is not receiving the proper amount of water, your eyes begin to look sunken and dark due to the orbital bone.

Lifestyle Cure:
Step on the scale (before eating the pie, trust us) and divide that number by 2 - that is how much water you should drink in ounces a day. This recommendation as outlined by U.S. News & World Report.

Agave Nectar cleanse — no this isn’t a new fad diet. This is simply adding Agave Nectar to a cotton pad and using it to break up makeup, while moisturizing, just before using your favorite FHF face wash! Re-apply Agave to the undereye and outer side area before you sleep too! The result? Plumped skin and less visible dark circles.


Ahh, one of the most common culprits - not getting enough or getting too many zzz’s. This can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show. And it gets worse - sleep deprivation can also cause fluid to build underneath your eyes making them appear PUFFY {insert crying emoji}.

Lifestyle Cure:
Doctors recommend 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Skip laundry. It can wait. Your beauty and mental health can’t!
