The black circle behind eyes


Causes of the black circle

Black or dark circles under or around the eyes can be caused by many different factors. The following are the most common causes of those unattractive dark circles. I also added other possible factors such as cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.
Heredity
Like varicose veins, dark circles under the eyes are usually an inherited trait. If you have dark circles, there is a good chance that others in your family also have them. The skin under the eye is very thin. When blood passes through the large veins close to the surface of the skin it can produce a bluish tint. The more transparent your skin, also an inherited trait, the darker the circles appear.
Allergies, Asthma and Eczema
Any condition that you have that causes your eyes to itch can contribute to darker circles under the eyes because rubbing or scratching the skin can darken the skin. Hay fever sufferers particularly will notice under-eye "smudges" during the height of the allergy season. Some food allergies can also cause the area under the eyes to appear darker.
Medications
Any medications that you are taking that causes blood vessels to dilate, can cause circles under the eyes to darken. Because the skin under the eyes is very delicate, any increase blood flow shows through the skin.
Nutrition
The lack of nutrients ( e.g. iron, Vit K)in the diet, or the lack of a balance diet, can contribute to the discoloration of the area under the eyes.
Fatigue, Lack of Sleep
A lack of sleep or excessive tiredness can cause paleness of the skin, which again allows the blood underneath the skin to become more visible and appear more blue or darker.
Pregnancy and Menstruation
The skin can also become more pale during pregnancy and menstruation, which again allows the underlying veins under the eyes to become more visible.
Age
If you have a propensity to have dark circles under you eyes, as you grow older, they are likely to become more noticeable and permanent. Excess folds of skin under the eyes will also make dark circles more pronounced.
Blood Circulation
Another cause may be bad blood circulation. Cardio exercise increases blood circulation and may help the dark circles to disappear.
Kidney or Liver problems
The area directly located under the eyes are close related to kidneys and liver, so the appearance of dark circles may indicate problems or weakness in the kidney or liver activity.
Exposure To The Sun
Even in darker skinned people, exposure to sunlight, especially during the summer months, can cause a higher-than-normal level of skin pigmentation (melanin) under the eyes. People get sun tans because exposure to the sun increases the natural pigmentation of the skin and draws that pigmentation to the surface. The same principle applies to the skin under the eyes.
Cold or Sinus Infection
Superficial blood vessels in the skin can lead to dark circles under the eyes. A cold or sinus infection increases pressure on these blood vessels, which makes it even more likely that dark circles will appear.
Dehydration
Dark eye circles could be a sign of excessive loss of water from the body.
Bone structure
If you have deep-set eyes, shadowing contributes to the dark color under the eyes.
Glasses
The weight of the glasses may cause bad blood circulation around the eyes.

Home remedies for reduce dark circles under eye
  • Mix one teaspoon flour, one teaspoon milk, a pinch of sugar, 1/4 spoon honey and squeeze half lemon juice. Apply it on face and once it is dry, rub the face with wet hands, till the pack in removed.
  • Grate cucumber / potato and squeeze fresh juice out of gratings. Dip two cotton balls in it and keep these cotton balls on eyes. This relaxes eyes and relieves tiredness of eyes.
