Hyperpigmentation of dark eye circles is typically caused by the pooling of blood under the thin skin beneath your eyes. This darkening occurs from the constriction of tiny vessels when inflammation is present, giving dark circles their characteristic bluish, brown or reddish tone.
Bluish dark eye circles are often a result of fatigue and dehydration due to an imbalance in your body’s water levels. Lack of sleep also causes cortisol levels to rise, breaking down collagen and leading to swollen veins underneath your eyes which create pigmented and puffy dark circles. These darkened areas appear blue hued because the subcutaneous tissue only allows blue/violet lights to pass through it, making veins appear more prominent.
Additionally, fluid retention and swollen areas around the eyes can create dark shadows which make dark circles even more visible.
These dark circles are often accompanied by eye bags, making you look exhausted and aged despite being well-rested and healthy.
They can be caused by a number of factors, such as:
Dark circles and puffy eyebags can make you look tired and older than you are, and can seriously affect your self-confidence.
Most people don’t give much thought to their eyebags until they start to become a problem. Dark circles can make you look tired and older than you are, and can seriously affect your self-confidence. If you have dark circles under your eyes, there are a few things that you can do to help reduce their appearance.
One of the best ways to get rid of dark eye circles is to use a cold compress. A cold compress will help to reduce inflammation and swelling around the eyes. You can use a cold compress made from ice cubes or a cold pack.
Another way to reduce the appearance of dark circles is to drink plenty of water. Dehydration can cause the skin around the eyes to become dry and irritated, which can lead to dark circles. Drinking plenty of water will help keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
Getting enough sleep is another important factor in reducing dark circles. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep each night.
