If you have been to a jiu-jitsu competition, especially one in which you or your child competed, you know that there are plenty of cameras and video recorders around just waiting to capture a perfect moment. Unfortunately, if you have dark under eye circles during the competition, that may be the only thing you are focused on when you go back to watch the highlights. If you want to avoid looking exhausted before the referee even begins the first match, you will need to do a bit of work.
Are You Competing?
If you are competing, much of the necessary planning to make sure those circles are gone is also necessary in order to get you prepared for your match. For instance, you will need plenty of rest before your bout. Not only will this keep you quick on your toes but it will allow your mind to react with the speed that it needs to in order to come out on top. In addition to the benefits to your fighting, getting plenty of rest before the match will ensure that those dark circles are nowhere to be seen on the big day.
Are You Watching?
If you are simply a spectator, you likely won’t have to worry much about seeing yourself on camera. However, it is likely you will be seen on video at some point or another and if you want to make sure you keep your focus on the competitor in the video rather than your complexion, make sure that you are using cosmetics that can cover the circles. There are plenty of cosmetics out there that can conceal the problem while also moisturizing your eye lids, which can help prevent circles in the future. If cosmetics are too temporary a solution, you may want to try some of the many serums that are on the market which promote healing and cleansing of the broken blood vessels that often materialize themselves as dark under eye circles.
Whether you are a competitor or a spectator, you want to make sure you look your best at the match. As a competitor, dark under eye circles will lead your competitor to believe that you are not ready and can give them that extra bit of confidence it will take to win. While it is all fun and is just a game, you have to admit, it is always better to win.
