STRESS di­rects blood to es­sen­tial or­gans, leav­ing you with a paler com­plex­ion that makes dark cir­cles more no­tice­able.

TIRED­NESS slows down our blood cir­cu­la­tion, which shows around the eyes as puffi­ness and dark shad­ows.

IRON DE­FI­CIENCY can man­i­fest it­self around the eyes as al­most bruised rings.

SALTY AND PRO­CESSED FOODS are the worse cul­prits for caus­ing fluid re­ten­tion, re­sult­ing in tem­po­rary eye puffi­ness.

FOOD AL­LER­GIES can cause con­stant puffi­ness. Wheat, in par­tic­u­lar, has been known to con­trib­ute to dark cir­cles.

CER­TAIN MED­I­CA­TIONS that di­late blood ves­sels can in­crease blood flow around the eyes, which causes shad­ows.

AL­CO­HOL leads to de­hy­dra­tion, which leaves eyes in­flamed and ir­ri­tated.

GENES play a huge part in dark cir­cles, fine lines and wrin­kles.
