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.
