What are dark circles?


Dark circles or periorbital hyperpigmentation under the eyes can affect people of all ages and skin tones and they are a common complaint.

There can be various reasons why dark circles develop including tiredness, family history, seasonal allergies such as hayfever, or even eye strain caused by lengthy screen time.

Rubbing the eyes can exacerbate the condition and of course, lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption or unhealthy food choices don’t help.

Making sure that we drink enough water to remain properly hydrated can really help, as can the right amount of sleep (too much sleep can be as detrimental to the prevention of dark circles as not enough), a healthy diet, and an optimum skincare routine.

Dark circles under the eyes are not necessarily permanent, although they can become more likely as time passes and the delicate skin underneath the eyes thins.

For some people the option of professional aesthetic intervention such as Chemical Peel treatments can gently deliver skin renewal, enhancing brightness and softness, and minimising the effects of dark circles.
