Under Eye Dark Circles – Causes
Despite what most people think, under eye dark circles are not necessarily caused by being tired or stressed. Instead, dermatologists and plastic surgeons agree that persistent dark circles are caused by capillaries that leak blood close to the skin’s surface.
When this blood begins to oxidize it turns a bluish red colour, similar to a bruise. And since the skin under the eyes is very thin, this leads to the appearance of those dark circles. The more transparent your skin and the more blood that pools under it, the darker the circles appear. And what’s worse, this discolouration over time can become permanent!
