The good news about those dark circles under your eyes is that most of us have them. The bad news is, they’re pretty hard to get rid of completely. There’s also a bunch of reasons why we get them. “As we age, our skin thins — especially around the eye area,” says L.A. esthetician Gina Mari. “It becomes easier, then, to see the blood vessels and the inner works of our tissues in that area.” New York City dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe finds this to be true for her patients, too. “You see dark circles that are primarily due to dark purple or blue veins showing through thin, transparent skin.” She also says they can result from shadows, or “hollows [that] form under the eye as a result of aging or genetics.”
Oh yes, they are hereditary, too. Thanks parents! While it’s a challenge to remove them completely if your dark under eyes are a genetic factor, there are simple ways to decrease the appearance.
Look for Brightening Ingredients
Just like hyperpigmentation, under-eye circles can be treated with brighteners. “Try an eye cream with ingredients like retinol, niacinamide or vitamin C,” Bowe says.
