The area under the eyes start to get darker and in some cases swell up.
Brown circles result from hyper-pigmentation; the darker circles are caused by oxygenated blood pools beneath the under-eye skin. The main triggers are chronic eye-rubbing, excessive sun exposure, genetics and age. Allergies are a major cause, as nasal congestion can dilate the blood vessels that drain from the area around your eyes, causing them to darken. Race, illness, diseases, infections, vitamin deficiencies, mental disorders, weight gain and loss, diet, lifestyle and allergies are contributing causes to dark circles.
Dark circles under the eyes are most prevalent among Asian and African skin tones. This condition is also associated with ageing, thus targeting the older generation. People who suffer from an Iron deficiency can prevent the blood from carrying sufficient oxygen to eye tissues. Individuals with sleeping disorders such as insomnia, pregnant woman, being overweight, having Eczema or skin pigmentation abnormalities, depression, substance abusers or addicts, low immunity and people with allergies or illnesses will most likely suffer from dark circles.
