What are Dark Circles?

Genetics are the biggest culprit. If you inherit fair or thin skin under the eyes, it's more obvious when blood pools there (often because of slower circulation from lack of sleep). This accumulation causes fragile capillaries to stretch and leak.

Age is another factor. Over time, skin loses collagen and thins, so veins show through more prominently. Sunbathing speeds up this process by breaking down collagen and mottling skin color.

Seasonal allergies are to blame for many people. They trigger the release of histamines in the body, which in turn inflame blood vessels and cause swelling, says Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist in Boston. To determine why your circles happen, gently stretch the skin under your eyes. If that area becomes darker, the circles are probably due to genetics or aging. If the color doesn't change, UV rays or allergies are probably the cause.

Dark Under-Eye Circle Prevention

There are simple things you can do to remedy dark circles under your eyes. Sometimes, the problem is minor or temporary; an inexpensive home treatment may be appropriate.

  • Get enough rest. Sleep deprivation only makes dark eye circles more obvious.
  • Drink Water. Hydrating your skin can reduce the appearance of under-eye circles.
  • To decrease pigmentation, protect against the sun by wearing (large) sunglasses.
  • Slight elevation of the head during sleep will help prevent fluids from draining toward the eyes.
  • Refrain from smoking. If you already smoke, quit now.
  • Don't rub the area around the eyes; doing so will only make the condition worse.
