ringed by dark circles. Getting a full night sleep is no longer enough if you would like to get rid of dark
circles under eyes according to experts. Although this move can lessen the appearance, the real best
means for getting rid of dark circles under eyes is by knowing their source.

Genetics can be considered as the most common culprit. If you have inherited thin or fair under eye
skin, it will become more noticeable once blood accumulates in the area, which is usually caused by the
slow circulation due to insufficient sleep. This formation will then make the fragile capillaries to leak and
stretch.

Another factor is age. Over time, the skin thins and loses its collagen, which becomes the reason why

trigger the body’s histamines, which will ten inflame the blood vessels that results to swelling. To know

problem might be due to aging or genetics. If there will be no color alteration, allergies or UV rays might
be the usual cause.

sleeping at night so that blood will not accommodate below your eyes. During the day, you can place a
cold compress over your eyes within five minutes so that the blood vessels will constrict. You can also
