All you need to know about the dark circles- causes and prevention!
When you talk about skin problems, the most common question is how to get rid of those dark circles under the eyes. Dark circles are equally common in men and women both. They are dark patches under the eyes which might make you look older than your actual age. Moreover, they are actually very hard to get rid of.
While the common notion is that eye bags and dark circles are a result of stress and fatigue, which is true, there can be a lot of other reasons for these to show up. Read on to find out about the causes, prevention, and some DIY tips to get rid of dark circles.
What causes dark circles?
Sleeping less than or more than the needed amount of time that your body needs can cause dark circles under your eyes. Sleep deprivation causes the skin to look pale and dull and hence the dark tissues become more prominent resulting in dark circles and fine lines around your eyes. And so does oversleep!
Aging is a natural process where your skin loses the fat and collagen needed to maintain the elasticity of the skin. The dark blood vessels, as a result, show up just beneath the skin. Also as you age, there is a lack of vitamins and minerals in the body and hence the skin shows signs of discoloration.
The strain on the eyes
Spending long hours in front of the laptop and mobile screen affects our eyesight as well as under-eye area. The radiation coming from these electronic devices tire out our eyes and cause the blood vessels around our eyes to expand and hence the skin darkens.
Having allergies or dryness in the eyes can also cause dark circles. The more you rub your eyes during an allergic reaction, the more there are chances of inflammation and more dark circles.
Since childhood, you have learned how the human body is made of 72% water. The importance of proper hydration cannot be neglected. Dehydration affects your under-eye skin in a way that when there is a lack of water in your body, your eyes look sunken and hence there are dark shadows.
Being out in the sun for long periods of time is also one of the causes of dark circles. The excess sun causes melanin production in the body to increase and hence the tanning. The area under your eyes is more sensitive than other areas so it gets affected more.
Genetics play a big role even in the smallest of your body feature. And yes, you might inherit dark circles as well. They may go away after a certain age or may keep increasing. In this, all you can do is take care of your under-eye area.
