Dark circles can develop at an early age, like adolescence and early 20s, although it is more common in older people.

Dark circles around the eyes can develop due to hereditary factors, lack of sleep, illness, stress and nutritional deficiencies.Therefore, along with external treatment, it is advisable to take these aspects into consideration in order to establish the cause and bring about the necessary changes.
The way to prevent dark circles is to have a nutritious and balanced diet, including fresh fruits, salads, yogurt and sprouts in your daily diet, along with unprocessed cereals, skimmed milk, cottage cheese (paneer), lentils and beans.
Daily exercise, along with deep breathing, helps blood circulation, oxygenation and control of stress. Adequate sleep and relaxation are very important.

Some home remedies can be used to minimize dark circles, brighten the eyes and reduce fatigue:
– Cucumber juice is a common remedy. It should be applied daily around eyes and washed off with plain water after 15 minutes.
– Mixing potato juice with cucumber juice in equal quantities helps if there is puffiness along with dark circles. Follow the same procedure.
– Dark circles can also be treated by mixing cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal quantities. Apply daily and wash off with water after 15 minutes.
– Tomato juice is also said to lighten skin colour.
– Consult your doctor about daily exercises. Include deep breathing exercises in your exercise schedule. This helps to deal with stress and also oxygenates the body.
– Along with external care and a healthy lifestyle, take time off for relaxation, using eye pads. Take cotton wool and make two thick square pads. They can be soaked in cucumber juice or rose water. Lie down, close your eyes and put the soaked pads on them. Keep them on for about 15 minutes. Used tea bags can also be used as eye pads.
– Applying a compress of iced water or cold milk directly over closed lids for 15 to 20 minutes also helps.
Apply Honey & Almond Oil Mask: Mix the drops of oil and honey in the palm of your hand. Pat it onto your under eye skin gently. Leave on while you do the rest of your evening routine.
Gently wipe off the excess with a damp washcloth. Pat dry but do not rinse. Wash your face normally in the morning. Avoid using cosmetics around the face. Repeat treatments every evening for 6 weeks.
