Re: Dark circles under the eyes

Other causes of dark circles under eyes are;

  • Heredity: Dark circles under the eyes may run within the family. That is why it also occurs in children because it can be inherited
  • Allergies: Nasal allergies can affect the areas under the eyes and make it appear darken.
  • Excess Sun Exposure: This may cause the skin to produce excess melanin (pigment responsible for skin color)
  • Iron deficiency causing insufficient oxygen-rich blood from getting to the eyes tissue
  • Aging : This can result to thinning of the skin, loss of fat and reduced collagen and hence making dark circles under the eyes more obvious.
  • Rubbing or scratching of the eyes
  • Atopic Dematitis (Ezcema)
  • Fluid Retention as a result of weight gain, pregnancy or excess salt intake
  • Lifestyles such as excessive smoking, drinking and over-stressing
  • Too much sleep and lack of sleep can both result in dark circles under the eyes
