Dark Circles Under Eyes: Causes and Treatments

At one point or another, we all suffer from having dark circles under our eyes. This condition can make you look tired and unhappy. The appearance can also affect the way you feel about yourself, causing you to be self-conscious.

Dark circles under the eyes are treated rather easily, but before knowing what to do, you’ll need to figure out the cause of the problem.

Causes of Dark Circles Under Eyes

Unappealing discoloration can be a result of aging, eye strain, allergies, dehydration, overexposure to the sun, genetics, or being predisposed to certain medical conditions like thyroid disease.

Treatments for Undereye Dark Circles

For dark circles that are caused by something out of your control, you may have to do your best to hide them. Using a good concealer as part of your makeup routine can diminish undereye darkness.

Many creams are available over the counter that can help minimize dark circles.  Look for products that have ingredients like retinol and vitamins C and E.

If you suffer from temporary undereye darkness and need a quick fix you could apply cold, moist tea bags to the area for a few minutes. Tea fights inflammation and can ease undereye puffiness as well.

If the dark-colored skin under your eyes is accompanied by itching, watering, or dryness, then allergies may be the culprit. Usually taking an allergy medication in pill form, or as eye drops helps.

Since sun damage can cause darkening you should always wear sunglasses that filter out UV light.
