Whether it was when you were pulling all-nighters in college to finish papers or when you were waking up every hour to take care of your new baby, you probably have experienced dark circles under your eyes at some point or another.

But after a while, those dark eye circles stop becoming a result of a lack of sleep and start becoming the result of aging and facial volume loss. If you want to get rid of dark eye circles, there are a few things you can do!


What Causes Dark Eye Circles?


For starters, this is a kind of umbrella term for a lot of different cosmetic concerns around your eyes that could be caused by a number of factors which can include:

  • Genetics

  • Sun Exposure

  • Allergies

  • Dehydration

  • Lack of Sleep

  • Aging

How Do You Get Rid of Dark Eye Circles?


When You’re Young:


There seems to be this idea that anti-aging creams are only for people in their 40’s and older, but that’s not true! You can (and should) start using collagen and retinol products to preserve your skin’s elasticity while you’re in your 20’s and 30’s. Also be sure to keep yourself well-hydrated and get as much sleep as you can.


When You’re Older


Sadly, no matter how well you take care of yourself, you can’t avoid the aging which will give you dark eye circles. But the good news is that you don’t have to go under the knife to fix them! Dermal fillers, such as Restylane, can be used to restore the volume underneath your eyes for up to 12 months. What’s even better is that your treatment can be done in under an hour, and there’s no long recovery time!
