Dark cir­cles under the eyes are an unpleas­ant phe­nom­e­non that not only gives a tired look, but also spoils the mood of their own­ers. Many try to cope with this prob­lem by elim­i­nat­ing an exter­nal defect, but more often than not, the caus­es must be looked for deep­er.

Dark circles under the eyes give a painful and tired look to their owners.

Dark cir­cles under the eyes give a painful and tired look to their own­ers.

Causes of bruising under the eyes:

- lack of sleep;

- alco­hol abuse;

- con­stant work at the com­put­er;

- if you smoke and you have bruis­es under your eyes — this is a con­se­quence of the action of nico­tine;

- over­work, stress, chron­ic fatigue, ner­vous strain;

- hered­i­ty;

- mal­nu­tri­tion (lack of vit­a­mins, pas­sion for salty and spicy foods);


  1. If the cause of bruis­ing under the eyes is bad habits and irreg­u­lar nutri­tion, it may be worth recon­sid­er­ing your pri­or­i­ties.
  2. Lack of vit­a­mins, in par­tic­u­lar vit­a­min C, leads to fatigue and affects the appear­ance. Try to con­sume as many cit­rus fruits and oth­er vit­a­mins as pos­si­ble.
  3. It is impor­tant to stick to 8 hours of sleep and remem­ber that the body is inten­sive­ly restored until 2 am.
  4. Don’t for­get about water bal­ance. Lack, as well as excess water in the body can lead to bruis­ing.
