WHAT ARE THE CAUSES ?
As we age, a restructuration of the periorbital region sets in. Structures such as bone, muscle, fat, and ligaments sag, leading to a hollow area under the eyes that is commonly referred to as a "dark circle".
Poor sleeping habits and alcohol or tobacco consumption can be partly responsible for the appearance of dark circles.
We are all born with different genes. The genetic background that our parents passed on to us may be responsible for the early appearance of dark circles in some people.
The gradual loss of collagen, elastin and other structural components of the skin is partly responsible for the appearance of dark circles.
