Even though they may not look so pretty, dark circles under your eyes aren’t something I worry about. And you shouldn’t either. In most cases, dark circles aren’t caused by a medical problem. And the solution is usually quick and easy.
For me they show up when I’m not getting enough rest.
When you don’t get enough quality sleep, it can cause your body to become stressed. This can affect the way your body absorbs vitamins from food and any supplements you take. The simplest solution is to sleep more if you can. Strive for seven to nine hours a night. If you can’t dedicate that much time, see if you can sneak a few cat naps into your schedule. In a couple weeks, you’ll start noticing a difference.
Another cause could be strain on your eyes. Sitting by a computer for most of the day, reading… even watching television can cause your eyes to become tired and strained. And if you do this for too long, you’ll start noticing the “tired” look and dark circles. If you think strain may be your problem, make sure you take a break from your close-up work every 10 minutes or so. Look at something far away and try to focus. This will help keep your eyes relaxed.
Getting some exercise regularly will oxygenate your body and improve the appearance of your skin. Just make sure that you do interval training (high intensity, short duration exercises) to achieve best results.
