What Are Dark Circles?

    Dark circles refer to the darkening or discolouration of the skin under or around the eyes. The affected skin appears to look blue, black, or dark brown. This appearance of pigmented skin is also known as Periorbital Hyperpigmentation (POH), Periorbital Melanosis, Infraorbital Darkening, Infraorbital Discoloration or Periorbital dark circles.

    Dark Circle Treatment

    Dark Circles formation around the eye is a result of natural ageing, which leads to the loss of fat and collagen in the particular area, followed by the visual prominence of blood vessels. Other causes that are responsible are allergy, hay fever, eczema, contact dermatitis, heredity, sun exposure, sickness, stress, irregular sleeping, rubbing of eyes, and irregularities in pigmentation.

    For a more permanent option, some medical treatments are available to reduce the appearance of dark circles.

    Remember that dark circles are not something that have to be fixed. There is nothing wrong with just leaving them be. You should not feel pressure to permanently change how you look.

    If home remedies do not get rid of dark circles under the eyes, a person can see their doctor or dermatologist for advice on medical treatment. Dark circles can affect anyone of any age and ethnicity for a variety of reasons. Genetics, aging, and lifestyle factors all play a part in the development of dark circles. People may also find that allergies, nutrient deficiencies, or underlying health conditions can cause dark circles

    Dark circles are a common reason people see a dermatologist. People may not like the appearance of dark circles under their eyes and experience low self-esteem, but it is important to remember that they are harmless. Various medical treatments and home remedies can help reduce the appearance of dark circles. Although most treatments are safe, researchers have not confirmed their effectiveness in reducing dark circles under the eyes.

    We’ve all had a day where we’ve woken up less than well-rested, only to see dark circles appear under our eyes. For some, this is a minor issue that pops up every now and again but, for many patients, dark under-eye circles, under eye puffiness, and under-eye bags can be a constant issue. Whether it’s a natural genetic trait or it has been exacerbated by the natural aging process, dark circles under the eye can force patients to feel as though they look less energized, youthful, or radiant.

    Some of these includestress, lack of sleep, oversleeping, nasal allergies, ageing, exhaustion,eczema, reactions to certain types of makeup, and too much exposure to sunlight without the use of a good sunscreen. Most commonly, dark circles are treated by using cosmetic products that promise to get rid of them. There are many products available in the market that are designed just to prevent the formation of dark circles or get rid of them completely.
