Dark Circles

There are different views regarding dark circles around the eyes. Some people say that it is due to insufficient sleep, excess alcohol, and dehydration. However, the scientific understanding is that it all starts in the blood vessels called Capillaries. During the blood circulation process, RBC (Red Blood Cells) get into peripheral skin. The hemoglobin of RBC breaks down leaving a dark color. Thus, dark circles under eyes are caused by leaky capillaries.

Dark Circles can affect men, women, and children of all ages. Nevertheless, they are not sign of exhaustion or severe diseases. Eventually, that might make individuals feel old, unhealthy, tired, and disturbed. Some of the most common causes of dark circles are allergies, heredity, nasal congestion, pigmentation irregularities, and rubbing or scratching eyes.
