Why do we get Under Eye Dark circles?

Why do we get Under Eye Dark circles?

Dark circles develop due to pigmentation of skin in the orbital area. Many people believe that only aging is the cause of dark circles. But they are also caused due to other reasons such as:

  • Allergies

Dark circles under the eyes can be the result of allergies to airborne substances, such as pollen, dust, and pet dander, because of persistent eye rubbing

  • Medications

Certain medication and also liver and kidney problems could cause dark circles under the eyes.

  • Anemia

Iron deficiency anemia may cause a bluish tinge below the eyes.

  • Malnourishment

Lack of balanced diet is a common cause of dark circles. A healthy and nutritious diet rich in vitamins like A, C, K, E and nutrients can help to get rid of dark circles.

  • Exposure to sun

Too much exposure to sun weakens the thin skin around the eye area causing dark circles.

  • Heredity

Dark circles under the eyes run in families. They tend to be more noticeable in people with fair skin or deep-set eyes.

  • Fluid retention which causes puffiness that may cast shadows

Blood vessels under the eyes can become dilated and engorged, which can contribute to dark circles. Excess dietary salt and smoking are common causes. Conditions that cause fluid retention (e.g. heart, thyroid, kidney, liver diseases) or medications that cause blood vessel dilation may be a factor.

  • Aging

The skin under the eyes is thin and delicate to begin with. As we age, skin and the fat pad under the eyes becomes thinner, causing blood vessels to become noticeable. This thins and relaxes the skin around the eyes and gives the appearance of dark circles. Sun damage can make it worse because it weakens skin.

  • Lack of sleep

A lack of sleep can make skin appear more pale, which allows blood vessels to be more visible through the skin, giving the appearance of bluish or dark circles.

  • Dehydration

Dark circles under the eyes can be a sign of dehydration. Be sure to drink enough water.
