WHAT CAUSES DARK CIRCLES UNDER THE EYES

Knowing what might be causing your dark circles is the best way of knowing how to avoid them coming back.

THE TOP FIVE CAUSES OF DARK CIRCLES UNDER THE EYES

An underlying medical reason could be the cause of your dark circles. However, several lifestyle factors can also contribute to their appearance, including:

1. ALCOHOL

A glass of wine too many will reduce the levels of oxygen in your blood. When your blood lacks oxygen, it flows more slowly and is darker in colour.
Darkened blood vessels become visible through the fine skin under your eyes, which can cause dark circles to appear.

 

 

2. AN UNBALANCED DIET

If your body lacks vitamin C, iron or zinc from nutritious foods, the first signs of the deficiency may be dark circles under your eyes.

 

 

3. HAY FEVER

If you tend to rub your itchy eyes when hay fever strikes, you could be irritating the sensitive skin around your eyes and causing dark circles.

 

 

4. COMPUTER SCREENS

Dark circles can pop up when your eyes are strained from staring at a computer screen for too long.

 

 

5. STRESS

When your body is stressed your blood rushes to help your main organs, rather than to your face. This can leave your face looking drained and pale.
The contrast between the skin under your eyes and the rest of your face can make the dark circles under your eyes more noticeable.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
