"It is not about the quantity of sleep, but its quality which revitalizes the body and soul."
Whatever your sleep, well or disturbed, these small dark spots lying under your eyes just catch you off guard.
What causes them?
Before getting straight down to work in order to awaken your puffy eyes, hold on for a second and just think about the possible reasons which lead to forming dark circles around eyes.
Contrary to common belief, the so-called shades under eyes indicate something more than just a lack of sleep. Having thin skin around the eyes as well as visible blood vessels under the surface layer of the skin, triggered by the process of aging as well, leads to creating dark spots, which can be easily explained by the transluscent blood below the eyes.
Besides, the aging process has also something to do with that, too - it causes an elasticity loss, affecting the skin's regenerating functions, which also deepenes the problem.
Amongst the most common reasons that are responsible for having dark spots around the eyes are:
- genetic burden
- air pollution
- cosmetic allergies
