Dark Circles

Dark circles under eyes tell everybody around you that there is something wrong with you, that you are not well, that you are not as attractive as you used to be, or that you look much older than you really are. And the sad reality is that it's true, dark circles make you look exhausted, ill, old and depressed. Dark Circles under eyes are normally due to lack of sleep, fatigue, stress, shortage or some disease. Dark circles can be due to genetic factors also.
