Rings only look good on your fingers and never under your eyes! Dark circles are the worst nightmare for any girl. They make you look saggy and take away the glow from your face. Generally dark circles occur due to lack of sleep and unbalanced diets. But there are several other causes for these dreadful dark rings.  Let’s understand these and prepare ourselves to fight dark circles better.

Why dark circles appear?

Dark circles appear due to poor blood circulation. When you lack sleep your blood circulation slows down, which causes fragile capillaries to stretch and leak. Dark circles also appear due to seasonal allergies. Ranella Hirsch, renowned dermatologist from Boston, says that allergies trigger the release of histamines in your body which inflames the blood vessels and cause swelling, puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Age is another factor that increases the chances of dark circles. With time, your skin loses collagen and thins and due to this your veins slow down noticeably.
