Dark circles are dark discolorations of the skin under the eye. Commonly known as dark rings or shadows, these are scientifically known as Periorbital circles, periorbital hyperpigmentation or periorbital melanosis. Dark circles are not a serious skin problem but they make us look exhausted, unhealthy or older than our natural age. However, there are removal treatments offered by professionals at The Esthetic Clinic that can help anyone with such a problem.
What are dark circles and its main causes?
There are many causes behind the formation of dark circles such-
- Dry skin
- Drastic weight loss
- Prolonged crying
- Working for long duration in front of the computer
- Lack of proper sleep
- Unhealthy diet
Men and women of all ages can have dark circles.
Commonly there are two types of dark circles- blue and black or brown. The blue circles are formed due to pooling of oxygenated blood in the under-eye skin, whereas the brown/ black circles are formed due to hyper pigmentation of the skin around the eye.
Dark circles appear when the tiny blood vessels under the under-eye skin start leaking. Enzymes produced to clean this leak, by the body break down the red blood cells. This leads to the discoloration of the area under the eye, for example blue or brown/black. Aging is another cause that leads to appearance of dark circles under the eyes and puffiness of the eyes. The skin under the eyes is thin and delicate, and with age it becomes thinner, making the blood vessels even more prominent, which causes dark circles.
Some people have it due to their hereditary genes. Nutritional deficiency also be a prime cause.A person whose dietary intake is deficient in vitamins like A, C, K, E and other vital nutrients may have to deal with this problem of dark circles. Sleep deprivation and constant exhaustion make the blood under the eye more visible and the skin to appear blue or black/ brown.
