Dark circles describe the area underneath both eyes when it appears darker than the rest of a person’s skin tone. Dark circles often make a person look tired and may add years to a person’s assumed age.

Dark circles can be caused by a host of factors. Being sleep deprived causes pale skin that makes blood vessels more apparent under the eyes. Additionally, sleep deprivation can lead to inflammation under the eyes, casting shadows from the puffiness. Aging is also a culprit. As we age and collagen production decreases, our skin becomes thinner. This again makes blood vessels under the eyes more apparent, resulting in a dark appearance. Other factors that can cause dark circles include: eye strain, allergies, dehydration, sun exposure, and genetics.
