Why do we get Dark Circles under the Eyes ?

Dark circles under eyes affect both men and women and although dark under-eye circles often start in adulthood, young teens can develop them too.

Stress, Fatigue and lack of sleep aren't the main reasons for under eye circles. What appear to be under eye circles are sometimes just shadows under your eyes that develop as a normal part of aging, especially for people with deep set eyes.

Another major cause of dark circles is thinning skin, loss of fat and collagen under the eyes making the blood vessels more prominent. This is common as we age.

Some other causes for dark circles can be Allergies, Eczema, Nasal congestion, Hyperpigmentation (a concern for people with darker skin), Hormones, Heredity and some Medications.

Talk to your doctor or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what is causing the circles under your eyes, your doctor may recommend prescription creams or a combination of treatments to erase or reduce discoloration. Laser therapy or chemical peels can be helpful in some cases. Shadows can be smoothed with injectable fillers, and surgery can eliminate puffy eye lids.
