Causes of Dark Circles

Though many believe they can be hereditary, there’s no conclusive evidence as such. Lack of sleep, mental stress, lifestyle habits, a bad diet can contribute to dark circles. Whatever be the reason, it’s best to work on the problem before it aggravates.

The problem of dark circles under the eye is very common and nearly everyone who doesn’t get enough sleep seems to suffer from it. However, medical studies have also proven that the problem of Dark circles is also genetic to some extent.

Home remedies for dark circles:

  1. Massage Vitamin E or almond oil around the eyes without touching the eyes (massage must strictly be external). This improves blood circulation.
  2. As a quick fix during parties, use a makeup concealer to hide the dark circle. But remember this is only a temporary solution.
  3. Get a lot of sleep. Sleeplessness is a culprit for most health problems. Have a set routine and have regular sleep timing. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep.
  4. Grate raw potato, squeeze the juice and apply the juice under your eyes for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can also place thin slices of potato on your eyes (with them closed) every night before you retire. This is one of the most popular and time-tested home remedies for dark circles.
