WHAT CAUSES DARK CIRCLES:
So, why do we get dark circles and sunken eyes? Well, in this particular area under our eyes we have very thin skin. The skin there is delicate and doesn’t contain as many oil glands or as much collagen as other parts of our body. As a result, its easily prone to dehydration as well as being one of the first places to show signs of ageing. And as the area is so sensitive, it’s easily affected by changes in our body and due to a variety of different causes, overtime it can darken or sink in.
The area is highly vasculated, which basically means, that there’s lots of blood vessels there, so if the skin thins these become more visible, giving the area a darker appearance. And anything that hollows our under eye creates shadows, also making the area appear darker. So sunken eyes and dark circles can actually go hand in hand.
But what causes these things to happen? Well, there are few things that are out of our control that can make dark circles and sunken eyes worse, such as ageing, ethnicity, genetics and underlying health conditions, such as allergies, sinus infections and diabetes.
Studies have shown that as you get older the distribution and volume of fat in your face changes, which along with a loss of bone density, leads to facial hollowing such as sunken eyes. And it’s also believed that dark circles are more visible in those of non-white descent due to differences in melanin production.

WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE:
Now, like I mentioned earlier, dark circles and sunken eyes can be caused by a variety of things, with one of the main ones being poor sleep hygiene. If you regularly oversleep, wake in the early hours of the morning or struggle to get to sleep often, speak to your doctor as there may be an underlying cause that needs addressing.
And sunken eyes, if accompanied with other symptoms, can also be a sign of dehydration. So, if you ever have sunken eyes along with feeling thirsty, dizzy, tired, or with dry lips, speak to your healthcare professional.
