Sleeping well is an insufficient remedy to get rid of dark circles, It may help diminish their appearance a bit, but to get rid of circles for good, first consider their source.

Why Dark Circles Under Eyes Appear

Genetics are the biggest culprit. If you inherit fair or thin skin under the eyes, it’s more obvious when blood pools there (often because of slower circulation from lack of sleep). This accumulation causes fragile capillaries to stretch and leak.

Age is another factor. Over time, skin loses collagen and thins, so veins show through more prominently.

Seasonal allergies -They trigger the release of histamines in the body, which in turn inflame blood vessels and cause swelling.


Toxins within the body

Shadows from under-eye bags

Your genetic makeup (eye structure)

Stress/fatigue (often the result of a lack of sleep)

Sun exposure

Cigarette smoking

Rubbing of the eyes/eye area

Hormonal changes

To determine why your circles happen, gently stretch the skin under your eyes. If that area becomes darker, the circles are probably due to genetics or aging. If the color doesn’t change, UV rays or allergies are probably the cause.

How to Treat Dark Circles

For any these conditions, treatment methods can vary, ranging from topical and internal treatments to lifestyle changes.

If your circles are the result of vascular issues, double up on pillows at night to stop blood from building up under your eyes.

In the morning, apply a cold compress for about five minutes to constrict the blood vessels.

Use an eye cream with caffeine, which helps constrict vessels, And eye creams with green or black tea or grape seed oil help strengthen capillary walls.

You can tweak your diet, too. Flavonol-rich dark chocolate (an ounce a day) and foods full of omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, walnuts) may improve blood flow to the skin.
