About Dark Circles: If you are one of those people who suffer from dark circles and puffiness under your eyes you can take solace in the fact that you are not alone. In reality, most of us are affected by this condition at some point in our lives. What causes dark circles and puffiness? For one thing, a large part of it is hereditary. Yes, it’s true, genetic factors and individual anatomical factors are a big contributor. But there are other factors too. Dark circles and puffiness can be attributed to certain lifestyle factors. For example, not enough sleep, excessive salt intake, lack of hydration, poor nutrition, and smoking are all culprits that can cause this condition or, at the very least, make it worse. The natural process of cellular aging is also a contributing factor in the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

Causes: Genetics and aging do play a significant role in the occurrence of dark circles and puffiness, but there are still things you can do to help. Of course, it goes without saying that changing any of the lifestyle factors listed above are the first steps to take. You will improve the appearance of dark circles and puffiness just by eating a well balanced diet and getting the proper amount of rest, quitting smoking, and watching your intake of sodium. Drinking plenty of water daily is also a habit that will benefit your whole body as well as your eyes.

Here are some natural steps toward reducing dark circles and puffiness:

Apply under-eye creams specially formulated for treating dark circles and puffiness. Eye creams which contain vitamin K and retinol are shown in recent studies to significantly improve dark circles and puffiness particularly when used daily.
Remove allergens: Allergies like hay fever can be a common cause for dark circles and puffiness so simply avoiding any known allergens can help. Over the counter medications and creams applied seasonally may also reduce irritation. Cucumber slices: This age-old trick really does help!
Tea Bags: Use dampened, cool (refrigerate them) tea bags to sooth puffy, dark eyes. The tannins in the tea tend to help, and make sure it contains caffeine.
A cloth-wrapped ice cube: This has the same anti-swelling effect as the cucumber.
Refrain from rubbing your eyes: Rubbing the eye area further irritates is and breaks the tiny capillaries in this delicate area.
Apply a makeup concealer: This doesn’t alleviate the dark circles and puffiness but it may make them less apparent and is a good temporary fix.
