What causes Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Getting extra sleep and trying to drink more fluids are two ways in which we can combat against dark circles under our eyes. However if these things have not worked for you and the circles under your eyes are causing you to feel stressed or unhappy, contact your GP for a thorough diagnosis.

What can you do at home?

There are a number of things you can do to treat dark circles under your eyes without seeking further medical attention:
