Dark Circles are the worst
What are Dark Circles?
Dark Circles = Skin Discoloration/Congested Tissues
Skin discoloration is hereditary and hardly anything can be done to restore the fairness. However, using sunscreen helps getting it worse.
In case of Congested Tissues, the skin is thin and transparent under the eyes and when blood flows through the veins under the eyes, the area looks bluish. It is more vivid during morning because we wake up from horizontal position. So the blood get accumulated beneath the under-eye skin. The bluish area is thus called dark circles.
Dark circles are highly common and affect the cosmetic appearance of the person.
Some believe that as one ages, skin becomes dry and leaves the dark circles.
- Excessive Stress
- Lack of sleep (causes blood vessels to dilated beneath your under-eye skin and in your face)
- Unhealthy Diet
- Nasal Congestion

- Use concealer. A good concealer always works. Find one that is especially designed to reflect light or to brighten underneath your eyes.
