Say good bye to dark eye circle


Periorbital dark circles  are dark under eye circles that most women have including myself. it could be very embarrassing cause it makes your face uneven. I would quickly run over the causes then give tips on how to reduce it.

The causes ranges from inadequate sleep, nasal congestion, stress, thinning from aging , you might even inherit it from your ancestors. Dark eye circles are very common amongst Africans and Asian people. It could even be shadows being thrown on your face by your natural facial features.*LOL*
The focus of this post is not the causes but the solutions. So I ask, What can get rid of this dark circles that isn’t harmful.

Firstly, always get your beauty sleep. Those hours we spend watching YouTube videos or late night movies aren’t worth skin irregularities. When you don’t sleep well, you start to look pale, thus leaving you with dark circles. Every night get at least 7-9 hours of sleep, it would refresh you and make you feel younger and more beautiful.

Secondly, apply concealer to hide dark circles. I know the use of concealer may sound drastic but desperate times calls for drastic measures. Just kidding. Lightly pat your concealer with your ring finger (the one after the middle finger and before the pinky) from the inner corner of your eyes to the outer part like u are drawing a triangle not a circle. Choose a concealer that is your skin tone because it a cover up process not a highlighting process. Always test before buying, tell the store attendant to help you with your selection. If your dark circles aren’t so obvious, go with the liquid concealers like Avon, Sephora, Mary kay etc people with heavy dark circles should use cake or cream like concealers like elf, black opal etc. Apply concealer in a stippling motion so it blends well into the skin.

Thirdly, Please stop rubbing your eyes. Friction occurs while you are rubbing your eyes. This causes skin pigmentation to darken over time. It’s a very nice feeling at times to rub on your eyes, but in the long run it’s no good.

Potato slices are very good for eliminating dark eye circles. They contain natural bleaching agents that can help lighten dark patches on the face. Cut a potato into circles and rub its juice over the dark circles, it would be gone over time.

Lemon juice is another natural bleaching product. It is an astringent that contains Vitamin C which is really good for the skin. Please, lemon juice would not drastically whiten your skin, it would only brighten your skin by few shades. Don’t go mixing it with your body cream and bath gel. *LOL*. Soak cotton balls in lemon juice, cleanse your face focusing on the dark under eyes. Rinse it off immediately, it might be too harsh on your skin.

I have a theory though, before  I started applying makeup, I didn’t have dark circles under my eyes. Wearing make up comes with the responsibility of taking care of your skin everyday. I am still doing some research on the effect of make up on skin. My theory might be correct who knows, I could be the next Albert Eintein.*LOL*


Lots of love,
Bibi l'amour.

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love.  Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose. On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderfu

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

How I got my battle scars (Part 2)

How I got my battle scars (Part 2) I want to start by saying a big thank you to everyone that reached out to me after my last post on how I got my battle scars , please read my last post before reading this one . The overwhelming love and encouragement I received from everyone blew my mind. Thank you so much for it all, thank you! Like I promised, here is the part 2 of this story. Isaiah 41:10 "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." March 22nd, 2012. After receiving emergency treatment, I was put in a corner to be picked up by my family. My friends had reached out to my older sisters (they both lived in the UK at the time) about the accident. They were scared and did not know how to inform my parents, at last, they passed the information to my dad. My dad was out of town, so he reached out to his friend who lived around
