In most cases, the dark under-eye circles under are blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. The skin around the eyelids is the thinnest skin in the body. Like varicose veins, dark circles under the eyes are usually an inherited trait. When blood passes through the large veins close to the surface of the skin, it can produce a bluish tint. The more transparent the skin the darker the circles appear. In people with a deep-set bone structure, shadowing can also contribute to the dark color under the eyes.
Any condition that causes the eyes to itch can contribute to darker circles due to rubbing or scratching the skin around them. Some food allergies can also cause the area under the eyes to appear darker.

While women may more openly discuss the problem of dark under-eye circles, the truth is that it affects men as well. “Are you feeling OK?” or “Were you up late last night?” may be common questions asked if waking up with dark circles. Many assume that lack of sleep is to blame, but dark circles can actually be inherited, and they have also been attributed to allergies and nasal congestion. These conditions can cause blood vessels around the eyes to dilate and darken.
Other triggers for dark under-eye circles include stress, anemia, eczema, crying, sleep deprivation, oversleeping, too much sodium, excessive drinking, smoking, sun exposure, mononucleosis and aging. In rare cases, dark circles could be indicative of a more serious problem, such as hyperthyroidism or liver disease.
Most of the time, dark circles aren’t that serious, and we just want something to cover them up. There are many cosmetic companies claiming to have a miracle cure, and some individuals just go the route of extra concealer and foundation to help dilute their appearance. But there is a more natural and effective way to eliminate dark circles using a simple home remedy, consisting of just baking soda and water!

This foundation tip can change your life. It will change the way you apply foundation forever. This trick will hold your foundation in place all day. No excess post powdering. I KNOW! We’ve been told to powder after foundation, and this makes total sense. And it works. But what works really well is to powder before foundation.
After moisturizer and primer THEN YOU POWDER. Then you apply foundation OVER THE POWDER! This will fill in pores. But what it will do is keep your foundation in place all day. If you have dry skin you will not need to powder your foundation after. You can just leave it. For those with very oily skin you will need a touch of powder on the t-zone only.
Everyone wants gorgeous, glowy, perfect skin. Sure, you can spend hours upon hours on a complicated routine that requires multiple steps and products to achieve said flawless look — but who has the time, money, or patience for all that? We certainly don’t.
Top Chicago beauty experts share quick and easy tips for attaining complexion perfection, minimal effort required. Follow these 10 golden rules, and you’ll see clearer, more radiant skin — without any lasers or expensive treatments.
Ditch The Washcloth It’s your skin’s worst enemy — not only can the scratchy texture lead to unsightly irritation and redness, it’s also a breeding ground for bacteria. A better bet? A Konjac cleansing sponge. “The sponge softens when wet, and the all-natural fibers gently exfoliate clogged pores with minimal effort.”
Use Wipes The Right Way If your preferred face-washing method is a cleansing wipe, consider this the official thumbs-up to go ahead and keep using them — with one caveat. “Many of these wipes contain high levels of preservatives that can cause irritation and dryness if left on the skin,” explains Chicago dermatologist Peter Lio, MD. But, don’t stress, there’s no need to wash your face post-wiping. Just a quick rinse will do the trick.
