What causes dark circles?
A large percentage of the population of the world deals with the cosmetic disaster which we call dark circles every day. Most people, however, are not sure what causes them and blame anything and everything from tiredness to stress as the culprits. While these factors may have contributed to your dark circles and puffy eyes, the role that your genes play cannot be undermined.
So, what’s the science behind dark circles?
Most people are not aware that the skin under and around the eyes is much thinner than the skin on the rest of the body. This skin, known as periorbital skin, is on average 1.5 mm thinner than the rest of the skin on your body. As we grow older, the elasticity of the skin all over the body decreases and does not regenerate as quickly as it would have. This is the primary reason why most elderly people have dark circles and puffy eyes even though they get adequate sleep every night.
In some cases, periorbital hyperpigmentation is also the culprit behind dark circles which make you spend tens of dollars on under-eye makeup. Periorbital hyperpigmentation is a condition which causes the skin below the eyes to produce more melanin than usual which makes it look darker than it actually is.
