Dark circles around the eyes are one of the easiest ways of spoiling the prettiest of faces!

Be it tireless, lack of sleep, allergies or most unfortunately, hereditary… dark circles always find a way to leave an ugly mark on your face!

But there is no need to be afraid of this dark reality! Whatever the cause may be, including ‘hereditary’, dark circles are curable!

First of all you need to find out the cause.

Does this problem run in your family?
These dark circles under your eye may be light carbon deposits that result from incomplete protein digestion. This may result from insufficient hydrochloric acid in your stomach that may be caused from a lack of primarily B6 and Folic Acid.

Leaving the technicalities aside, simply follow this simple solution. Start taking multivitamin supplements. Consult a dermatologist, who will provide you with a proper guidance to get rid of this problem.

Is it an allergy?
It is a very common cause of many skin problems including under eye circles. In this case you simply need to treat them or get rid of the thing to which you are allergic. If you are unable to detect the cause, the best person to consult is again, your doctor.

It is possible that your allergy is seasonal, which can easily be treated with over-the-counter and prescription medications.

Is it an unhealthy diet?
Amongst the 1000 + n problems that an imbalanced diet brings, is the problem of dark circles too! So, eat a healthy, balanced diet and drink plenty of water.

Or is it simply lack of sleep?
Your under eye puffiness may merely be due to fatigue and lack of sleep! Lack of sleep reduces blood circulation, making your skin appear paler and forming dark pits under your eyes. Now, you know what to do! Just squeeze in ample time for your sleep, from your watertight daily schedule!

You can also treat your skin while you are sleeping! You can use an overnight facial masque. Just before you go to bed, take some wet cotton and place it over your eyes as you sleep.

The Cucumber Therapy also helps a lot in this case. Apply cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or fresh cucumber slices to your eyes daily. Now just relax! And see how your dark circles fanish in the darkness of the night!
