When many people think about the causes of dark undereye circles, they figure not getting enough sleep may be the culprit. While fatigue can contribute to dark circles under the eyes, it’s usually not the biggest factor.\nDark undereye circles are often caused by factors associated with aging, or not caring for the skin properly. Let’s take a look at some of these causes, and then discuss ways that we can diminish dark circles.\n\nGeneral Allergies\nSomething that you are eating may be causing an allergic reaction in your body, which is showing up as skin irritation under your eyes. Yes, dark circles under the eyes may be simply irritated skin, not tired skin or irregularly pigmented skin. Make sure you eat a clean plant-based diet and drink a good amount of water each day to flush your system.\nAtopic and Contact Dermatitis\nSkin allergies like atopic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis, can irritate the skin and cause discoloration. If you have dark circles under your eyes and suspect that allergies might be the cause, change your skin care routine to an all-natural routine that incorporates Timeless Skin Care’s natural skin care products.\nFatigue\nFatigue can cause dark circles under the eyes, so be sure to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. To promote restful sleep, keep your room dark at nighttime and consider sleeping on organic sheets. Avoid temptation to be on your smartphone right before bed or to check your phone if you should wake up in the middle of the night.\nHay Fever\nSeasonal allergies associated with pollen, sometimes referred to as “hay fever” can cause dark undereye circles. If you suffer from hay fever, consider alternative remedies like homeopathy to reduce symptoms. And, use gentle and natural skin care products on your face, like those in Timeless Skin Care’s Pure line, as well as Timeless Skin Care’s natural dark circle eye cream.\nThese are just some of the potential causes of dark undereye circles. If you suffer from dark undereye circles, make sure your entire skin care regimen is natural and gentle – which means, consider switching to our facial night serum and other natural products.
