Dark circles under the eyes are common in both men and women or even      children.




  • Dark circles under the eyes could be a genetic condition found in all origins but common with people from the African and Asian background.
  • Lack of sleep: This is the top reason for dark circles under the eyes. This is due to slower circulation of blood.
  • Sinus: The tissue under the eye is very thin and because of this, congestion in the lymphatic system or venous system will show up as blue. This blue color is what is seen as dark under the eye.
  • Adrenal Fatigue: This creates stress and of course the appearance of dark circles under the eyes will reveal this.
  • Smoking and Alcohol could also cause dark circles.
  • Allergies especially to certain foods or even to certain medications can cause dark circles.
  • Sun exposure is also a possible cause.




To get rid of your dark circles, you need to be patient and take your treatment seriously. Dark circles are easily treated when you know the cause. So base on the cause of your dark circles, the following procedures can be of great help.
