How Do You Get Dark Circles Under Your Eyes and How Can You Prevent Them?

How-Do-You-Get-Dark-Circles-Under-Your-Eyes-and-How-Can-You-Prevent-Them

Dark circles under eyes are common for adults and are often associated with insufficient sleep. Although it can look like the delicate skin beneath the eyes is bruised, it is not. In fact, the dark shading is often caused by puffy eyelids casting shadows on the skin beneath.

Causes of Dark Under-Eye Circles

While the most common cause of under-eye circles is fatigue, the noticeable condition can also be caused by the following:

  • Contact or atopic dermatitis
  • Allergies
  • Heredity (under-eye circles can be passed down genetically)
  • Excessive sun exposure (which can cause your body to produce more of the skin pigment melanin)
  • Scratching or rubbing the eyes too vigorously
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Loss of collagen and fat that occurs as you age and leads to thinning of the skin

Regardless of their cause, you can minimize the appearance of bags under eyes by using dark eye circle cream and other skincare products that nourish and restore elasticity to the skin.

How to Prevent Dark Circles

If the dark circles under your eyes are caused by fatigue, the best way to get rid of them is to get adequate sleep. If you get the recommended amount of sleep each night but still feel fatigued, you may have underlying issues that are keeping you from achieving restful sleep. Minimizing stress, avoiding caffeine in the afternoon and evening, and finding out if you have sleep apnea are all good ideas if you have trouble sleeping.

Take Care of Your Eyes

Of course, one of the best ways to minimize the appearance of dark circles under the eyes is to regularly use eye cream and other natural skincare products. At Timeless Skin Care, we only offer high-quality products containing pure and natural ingredients. Take a minute to look through our effective eye creams and get ready to say goodbye to dark under-eye circles for good.
