Dark Circles

Adults are more concerned about dark circles under the eyes than nearly any other aging-related problem (besides wrinkles).

There’s a psychological element to dark circles. They can influence how people see you; friends and colleagues may think you’re sad or depressed. They give away how much (or how little) sleep you’ve had.

There’s no easy cure for dark circles. If you’re able to be more mindful of rubbing your eyes, managing your allergies and monitoring how you sleep, you may see some positive effects. Reducing the levels of salt, alcohol, and nicotine you consume could also help.

The skin around your eyes is different from the skin around much of the rest of your body.
