What are Dark Circles?

  • These are large darker colored patches under and around the eye area.
  • The thin layer of skin below your eyes show the blood vessels more clearly than anywhere else
  • Dark circles are not a serious skin problem, but they make you look tired, exhausted, unhealthy and older.

What Causes Dark Circles?

There are many reasons. Both men and women of different age groups can have dark circles.

  • Lack of sleep due to late-night parties or examination time cramming
  • College or work related stress
  • Tiredness, working too hard, increases cortisol in the blood, leading to more visible veins
  • Puffy eyes are caused by water retention, which throw dark shadows in certain light
  • Scratching or rubbing your eyes a lot
  • Even sleeping on your stomach as a habit makes the blood tend to show through as dark circles
  • An unhealthy diet – nutritional deficiency, dehydration, anemia
  • Aging – as we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner
  • Some medication also causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to dark circles
  • Melanin produced due to sun exposure
  • Heredity-Your genes can play a huge role here: something known as preorbital hyperpigmentation causes more melanin to be produced by the skin below the eyes, a condition that is more noticeable in darker skinned people.

#BeautyTreatmentThroughTheAges

In ancient India, they had perfected the use of cosmetics – not just for aesthetic beauty, but for protection in hot climates.

Baths, using bathing pastes or mud were a ritual to firm the skin; milk and honey for silky smooth skin; facial masks to unclog pores; butter & barley for blemishes & pimples, and as a cleansing cream were common.

Ayurveda. In this 5,000-year-old tradition of Vedic medicine, each person is looked at individually and treatments typically involve diet, herbal remedies, exercise, yoga and meditation.

Aromatherapy. Among many beauty care regimens, aromatherapy facials have been done here for ages, for their calming and antioxidant benefits.

Body scrubs. An Indian wedding tradition is the ritual bridal showers where women are smeared with turmeric pastes and sandalwood. Both are rich in antioxidants and excellent at exfoliation. In South India, coconut milk is massaged on the body and hair, a highly moisturizing treatment. You can make your own Indian body scrub with ground chickpeas.

Massages. When kids are born in India, mother and child are given a full-body massage for 40 days — from head to toe — and then a warm bath to help the body recover.  It tones the baby’s body and prevents the mother’s  post-partum depression..

Special Oils like Argan Oil, apricot oil, cedarwood oil and many essential oils have been used for eons around the world to tone the body and mind and enhance inner beauty. Try some of them here, reinvented for you and curated by Natural Mantra!
