What are the actual reasons behind the formation of dark circles under the lower eyelids?

There are several factors which contribute to this specific skin condition. Below, I am going to discuss some of the common reasons for your convenience:

Lack of sleep

Insufficient sleep can lead to fluid build-up underneath the eyes, making them look puffy. Thus, it can be said that the dark circles that you see are simply the shadows cast by the puffy eyelids. so under eye dark circles and under eye bags are closely related.

Extreme fatigue, oversleeping or staying awake past your usual sleep time can lead to the formation of dark circles under the eyes. Sleep deprivation can make your skin appear pale and dull, thus leading the dark tissues as well as the blood vessels showing up.

Eye strain

Working on your computer or staring at the television screen for a long time can lead to significant stress and strain on the eyes. It further enlarges the blood vessels surrounding your eyes. Hence, the skin besides your eye zone can darken.

Blood Pressure

High blood pressure and thyroid problems are also associated with such problems and some times the bags and under eye circles , fluctuate and get better or worse on their own.

Overexposure to Sun

The level of melanin starts reducing in the body when you overexpose yourself under the Sun. Melanin is that pigment which is responsible for providing colour to your skin. Overexposing under the sun leads to pigmentation of the skin surrounding the eyes, making them appear dark.


This is a common reason behind the formation of dark circles under the eyes. When your body doesn’t get the water it needs, the skin beneath the eyes starts looking dull and your beautiful eyes appear sunken. This happens due to their presence near the underlying bones.


Eye dryness and certain kind of allergic reactions can lead to dark circles. Histamines are released due to the presence of harmful bacteria in the body when you have an allergic attack. Apart from making you feel uncomfortable, redness, puffy eyes and itchiness are some of the common symptoms. Histamines also make your blood vessels dilate and hence, become much more visible beneath the skin. Allergies also make you rub the itching skin repeatedly around the eyes. This further worsens the symptoms, leading to broken blood vessels swelling and inflammation. As a result, dark shadows form beneath the eyes.

According to principles of ayurveda and some alternative medicines the problem of dark circles and under eye bags is purely related to the problem in the sinus related mucosal tissue and its local immunity and circulation.
