Dark Circles make us look tired and old. It is aesthetically unacceptable to most people regardless of age. The key to a successful treatment of the dark circles is to identify the actual cause of the condition. It can be caused by stress, fatigue, dehydration, heredity, aging and other factors. Several medical conditions can also give rise to an eyebag appearance such as asthma, skin allergies or circulatory problems such as kidney issues, or nutritional issues such as Vit K deficiency.
Our bone structure around the eyes or the amount of skin pigment, melanin, on the lower eyelid area can give rise to dark circle appearances. Having excessive eyebags can also accentuate dark circle appearances.
Short term causes of dark circles can be easily treated by having enough rest and proper hydration. Several home remedies can also effectively help dark circles.
