Remedies For Dark Circles

It is often said that the dark circles are caused by tiredness or working too hard or even just staying up late. This is true and the other thing is that your genes play a huge role here.

Periorbital dark circles are a result of the thin layer of skin below your eyes showing the blood vessels and the blood they contain more clearly than anywhere else on your body.

The fact is that as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and ability to regenerate and as a result, it becomes thinner. This is why the elderly people will have rather prominent periorbital dark circles regardless of how much they sleep.
