Does sleeping help with dark circles or is it a myth?

Are you tired of looking… well, tired? Dark circles can be annoying, but when you google to look for a solution or ask someone, they first tell you to sleep more. Sleeping has become the go-to answer for dark circle questions. Getting enough sleep helps with dark circles, but it's not the only solution. Dark circles can have various causes.

In today's blog post, we will discuss all the causes of dark circles and the top 5 most used under eye cream in the UB community. 

Causes of dark circles 

Sleep Deprivation: The lack of sleep can cause your skin to become paler and your dark circles more noticeable, but this is only a part of the story.

 Genetics: Just like the color of your eyes, dark circles can be an inherited trait. If your parents have them, chances are you might too.

Age: Our skin becomes thinner as we age, and the dark blood vessels beneath become more visible.

Sun Exposure: Overexposure to the sun can cause your body to produce more melanin. This pigment gives your skin color, possibly darkening the under-eye area.

Screen Time: Excessive screen time can lead to dark circles under the eyes.

Medication: Certain medications can cause blood vessels to dilate, making the under-eye area appear darker.

Dehydration: When the body doesn't receive sufficient water, the skin under your eyes can look dull, and your eyes can look sunken.

Now that you have identified the reason, it's time to look for a good eye cream.
