What Your Body Is Telling You Through Dark Circles

What Your Body Is Telling You Through Dark Circles
Everyone has had dark circles at some point of time. If you don’t get enough sleep for a day, Bam! There they are. Don’t drink water, and, bam! Back again to make your eyes look like you are several years old. In this fast paced life, it is rare that a woman hasn’t faced this problem of dark circles. So what really causes these dreaded circles to appear? Let’s find out. There is a network of tiny blood vessels under our eyes. They are so thin that sometimes blood leaks out of them. To clean that up, some enzymes are produced which appear to be black.

Why cover up your beautiful eyes behind big sunglasses when you can look at some of the causes of dark circles and understand how to prevent them?

  • Aging
    The skin under the eyes is thin and as we grow older, it gets even thinner. This makes the cleaning action of enzymes even more visible. To avoid this, you should follow a skin care regimen from your teenage years itself. Read this article for skin care tips you can follow in your 20s.
  • Dehydration
    Dehydration is one of the most common reasons for dark circles under the eyes. Thus it is advisable to have at least 8-10 glasses of water and include fresh fruit daily. It is also advisable to restrict the intake of caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee, alcohol and other caffeinated drinks as it dehydrates your body. Another important skin care tip!
  • Anaemia
    Iron deficiency causes dark circles which can be treated by making simple changes in your diet. Include green leafy vegetables, dairy products and all types of fruits to keep your body rich in iron.
  • Nutritional deficiency
    Dark circles around the eyes can be due to poor nutrition. A healthy and nutritious diet filled with vitamins like A, C, K, E and nutrients can help you get rid of dark circles. Check out 7 diet tips that you should follow for healthy skin.
  • Sleep deprivation and tiredness
    It results in pale skin, making the blood under the skin get more visible and appear blue or darker. Getting more sleep would be the best skin care tip for this situation.
  • Sun exposure
    Increased exposure to the sun can accelerate production of melanin and create dark circles. To protect yourself from the sun’s gaze, make sure you tank up on SPF
  • Allergies
    Mostly dark circles appear in children due to allergies. Any condition that causes the eyes to itch may contribute to darker circles due to rubbing or scratching the skin around them.
Research also suggests that dark circles are linked to liver diseases. Hence you should avoid alcohol and drink plenty of water. Hydrate your skin and especially the area under your eyes with Dabur Gulabari Moisturising Lotion. It gives you the gentle care of rose petals and makes your face glow naturally.
