The skin under the eye is very thin. When blood passes through the large veins close to the surface of the skin, it can produce a bluish tint. The more transparent your skin, the darker the circles appear. Dark circles under or around the eyes can be caused by many different factors. Medik8 Dark Circles contains a unique composition of powerful peptides, antioxidants as well as active lifting and toning ingredients. It is designed to help lighten the dark circles and relieve the bags or puffiness.

One cause of dark circles in the accumulation of haemoglobin and coloured degragation product (bilirubin and iron) in the dermis and epidermis. Contains Chrisin which helps stimulate the enzyme (UGT1A1) leading to the clearance of bilirubin. Contains hydrolysed bran protein and oxido-reductases which work as Collagenase and Elastase inhibitors thereby help strengthening connective tissue. Built-in Antioxidants help reduce the presence and damage of free radicals. Reflective optical particles additionally help reduce the 'shadow effect', giving an all-round cosmetic solution to the appearance of dark circles. Glycerin increases hydration and helps reducing transepidermal water loss.

Medik8 is a pioneering skin research company working in the field of sensitive skin green cosmeceuticals. Results without the irritation! It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would be less effective just because it is less irritating. In fact, latest independent research finds the opposite. Most skin is sensitive, it is just to what degree that distinguishes it from others. A simple change of washing powder can demonstrate this. People of all ages and skin types can periodically suffer from sensitive skin, making them particularly susceptible to certain irritating cosmeceutical ingredients. In fact, those suffering from acne, rosacea or psoriasis usually have greater skin sensitivity. Medik8 also recognise that people with sensitive skin and redness can also have oily, dry or combinations skin which is why our range for sensitive skin encompasses all skin types rather than offering one sensitive option. The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective professional skincare formulae less aggressive without reducing potency. We do this in many ways, for example using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies.
