Causes of Dark Circles
Several factors contribute to the development of dark circles under the eyes:

**1. ** Genetics: Skin thickness and skin elasticity, in general, are dependent to a huge extent on genetics. One should also note that those with a family history of dark circles or thin skin around the eyes should be more cautious to avoid developing this problem.
**2. ** Age: Since collagen and fat reduce and the skin becomes thinner as you grow older, vessels under the eyes stand out, and lead to the formation of the dark circle.
**3. ** Fatigue and Lack of Sleep: Lack of sleep can make skin appear lighter so that the subcutaneous vessels next to the eyes become visible and the appearance of dark circles.
**4. ** Allergies and Nasal Congestion: Inflammations and swelling of the skin around the eyes due to causes like allergies that trigger itching or congestion which leads to rubbing of eyes add to the formation of dark circles.
**5. ** Sun Exposure: High melanin production results from excessive sun exposure and leads to yellow or dark skin and consequently, development of darker circles around the eyes.

Ways to manage dark circles: Some skincare advice

Fortunately, there are several effective skincare tips and lifestyle changes that can help reduce the appearance of dark circles:

**1. ** Get Adequate Sleep: As for sleeping, adults need between seven and nine hours to let the skin rest and recover from daily stressors.

**2. ** Manage Allergies: For individuals who are allergic to dust or have sinus issues that lead to nasal congestion, treat these issues to minimize eye rubbing and swelling.

**3. ** Use Cold Compresses: Eye massage while washing with cold water or rubbing the eye area with cold cucumber slices can prevent development of edema.

**4. ** Keep Eye Skin Soft: Use a soft eye cream that adds water to the skin. Look for creams with stuff like hyaluronic acid or E vitamin.


**5. ** Block Sun Rays: Put on sunblock and shades to keep your skin safe from sun harm and stop dark spots from getting darker.
