Dark circles under the eye are an equal opportunity offender for all races and genders. Anyone can fall victim to these often bothersome side effects. Fortunately, a number of ways exist to prevent dark circles so that you can improve your appearance, confidence, and health.   


Reasons for Dark Circles

You might have dark circles under your eyes for any number of reasons. For some people, they are genetic. For other people, it could be as simple as a lack of sleep. They can also be directly related to allergies, dermatitis, hay fever, excessive salt consumption, or thinning skin. And, for other medical cases, it could be directly related to kidney problems or an imbalance in hormones. It is important to note that dark circles will occur under both eyes rather than just one. If you have an issue with just one eye, it could be something else entirely including possible bruising.


Holistic Remedies and Prevention

In many cases, you can reduce or eliminate circles with a few holistic remedies. The following are some simple at home remedies to reduce dark circles:

  • Cold Cucumber Slices
  • Cotton Balls Soaked in Milk
  • Tea Bags
  • Reduce Salt Consumption
  • Exercise
  • Limit Alcohol Intake
  • Stop Smoking
  • Minimize Sun Exposure
  • Get Enough Sleep

If home remedies do not work, you might benefit from a number of good quality products. In a pinch, use a concealer or powder that works with your skin tone. It is a fast way to cover dark circles until you have time to find a more permanent solution, if possible. Eye creams are another top way to reduce dark circles.
