There are no miracle cures for dark circles under the eyes. Genes are usually the culprit. If you look at old photos of your ancestors and you notice the dark circles under their eyes, then you’ll know I’m right. Another factor is allergies. If you have fair skin, it’s more obvious.The small capillaries stretch and leak which causes the blood to pool under the eyes. Some products, in today’s markets,contain peptides and can help thicken the skin.
Skin, over time, loses collagen and thins, revealing the veins underneath. Sun exposure also breaks down collagen and darkens the skin under the eyes. To treat the discoloration, look for creams that contain hydroquinone combined with retinal.
