Many people have dark circles under their eyes because of their type of skin pigmentation. This discoloration can be effectively minimized in my office through the use of light peels followed by at home use of my Sal-Hydro Liquid Fade Formula™. Sometimes dark circles can even develop around the mouth. Avoiding rubbing and scrubbing in the affected areas frequently minimizes the problem; however it is important to use the Sal-Hydro Fade Formula™ to maximize the results and to diminish discoloration. It is further helpful to use a facial sunblock such as my SPF 30 since sun exposure will result in the area becoming tan and, thereby, darken the pigmentation. In people whose circles are more blue than brown, it can be due to thin skin allowing the color of the blood vessels to reach the surface. In these cases, bleaching techniques are not effective.
