Reasons for Dark Circles Under Eyes

It is very important to get some good rest to prevent dark circles under your eyes, but being tired isn't the only reason for dark circles under your eyes.


Here are seven reasons for dark circles under eyes.

1. Hereditary conditions and bad genes.

There are hereditary conditions that run in families that can lead to darkness under the eyes. But specific lasers can help you get rid of it.

2. Eczema could be leading you to rub.

Excessive rubbing can lead to increased swelling, inflammation, and broken blood vessels in the eye area, which can give the skin a dark, almost bruised appearance.

3. Allergies can make you itchy.

Since the skin on our eyelid and under eye area is some of the thinnest in the body, it may cause those swollen blood vessels to appear darker than the rest of the face. Take care of your allergies as soon as possible and your dermatologist can help get rid of the dark circles under your eyes.

4. Your makeup could be irritating you.

Some people develop allergic reactions to makeup, and they get dark circles from the irritation, rubbing, and scratching.

5. Your bone structure could be to blame.

Your dark circles under your eyes could simply be the way your face is shaped.

6. Veins can give you a blue tint.

If your eye areas look particularly blue, it could simply be your blood vessels.

7. You're not protecting your skin from the sun.

Sun is good, but don't let your delicate under-eye area get too exposed. Sun damage can show up very quickly because eyelid skin is the thinnest in the body.
