There are many people with dark heavy bags under their eyes that even all the concealers in the world won’t hide. Maybe you’re one of them.
Some women suffer routinely from dark under-eye circles while for others they’re the result of one late night and too many drinks.
You’ve probably tried every type of cream, concealer or foundation and you’ve spent lots of money, but yet, none of them seem to work?
Well, why don’t you try something natural?
Many causes are to blame in case of the dark circles. The primary one is fatigue. Another is eye strain.
Allergies can also cause under-eye circles and so can contact dermatitis, which happens when your eyes came in contact with something that causes mild irritation, like soap or makeup. Sun exposure can lead to irregular melatonin levels and cause your eyelid area to darken.
The skin under your eyes loses elastin and collagen and gets thinner with age. This makes the blood vessels underneath more visible, giving a darker look. In some cases it’s just genetics, otherwise known as bad luck.
You can use several expensive treatments to combat persistent under-eye circles, but there are two approaches that won’t cost you a cent and may even work better!
- Improve your diet.
Persistent dark eye circles are known to appear due to iron deficiency. Iron keeps oxygen moving through your body and if you’re also feeling fatigued despite getting enough sleep, lack of oxygen could be the culprit. Try eating iron-rich foods like spinach, broccoli and all types of squash.
Eye circles can also result from the lack of antioxidants. Antioxidants are elements that fight aging and keep your skin youthful. Foods high in antioxidant pigments are: cranberries, blueberries, bilberries, onions, legumes, parsley and black or green tea.
