Dark under eye circle can make you you look tired, stressed, or even sickly.
Dark under-eye circles are primarily caused by leaky capillaries that create tiny pools of blood beneath the surface of the skin. Age-related thinning of the face, hormonal fluctuations, and vitamin deficiencies tend to make these bluish-black discolorations worse.
Some home remedies can help minimize the appearance of dark under-eye circles. For example, placing fresh-from-the-fridge cucumber slices on each eye while lying down will help lighten the skin and also cool and soothe your eyes. You can also use caffeinated tea bags on your eyes to reduce puffiness, which can make dark circles more prominent.
