How to remove eye circles

As you know, the eyes are the first thing that attention is paid to and therefore many women are concerned about the condition of the skin around the eyes. Dark circles under the eyes cause a lot of inconvenience, forcing women to resort to the use of tonal means and correctors that mask this flaw. But unfortunately, this method of correction does not solve the problem, but only hides it, and even then at the time of its application. We will try to understand the causes, methods of examination and treatment.

Etiology (cause) of the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
The causes of dark circles under the eyes can be divided into three groups:

Lifestyle impact
Diseases of the internal organs
Consider the above groups in more detail.

Lifestyle impact
The most common reasons include the first group. The wrong way of life can be attributed to: regular lack of sleep, an unbalanced diet, lack of vitamins, inadequate drinking regimen, the presence of bad habits, frequent stresses, excessive insolation, as well as work associated with hours of sitting at the monitor. From this we can conclude that many of us, unfortunately, fall into this group. However, the reasons for this group are the easiest to deal with, they are all reversible and easily corrected.

Diseases of the internal organs
Under the influence of the second group of causes, dark circles are only an external manifestation of internal health problems.

Dark circles are formed when there is a violation of the venous and lymphatic outflows, which occurs with insufficient blood supply and oxygen deficiency. This condition is called ischemia and hypoxia. As a result of this, metabolic disturbance and insufficient intake of nutrients occur. Thus, dark circles under the eyes are often found in people suffering from heart failure, coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases, as well as bronchopulmonary diseases (chronic bronchitis, fibrosing alveolitis, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis).

With a decrease in hemoglobin and red blood cells (anemia), dark circles under the eyes can be observed. Blood does not bring oxygen to the tissues. The accumulation of restored hemoglobin occurs and the blood acquires a dark shade. This is due to a change in the color of the skin around the eyes.

With diseases of the hepatobiliary system (cholelithiasis, cholecystitis), the content of bilirubin pigment in the blood increases. This can cause pigmentation of the skin around the eyes. In this case, the skin becomes a tan.

In diseases of the thyroid gland, in particular with hypothyroidism, bruises occur under the eyes. This is due to a lack of iodine in the body. In addition to the dark circles of patients, lethargy, drowsiness, impaired memory and attention, intolerance to cold and heat, and hair loss are disturbing.

In diseases of the nasopharynx (chronic tonsillitis, sinusitis, sinusitis, adenoiditis, etc.), the vessels expand, their blood is filled and as a result of blue under the eyes.

All acute infectious diseases accompanied by a rise in high temperature lead to intoxication with metabolic products of pathogenic microorganisms. In this case, the blood ph changes with a shift towards an increase in acidity. Acidosis, in turn, leads to an increase in vascular permeability and their expansion. With intoxication syndrome, dehydration occurs. Thus, through dry, thin, dehydrated skin, dilated capillaries become more visible, creating the effect of dark circles.

Diseases of the kidneys and adrenal glands lead to increased pigmentation in the periorbital zone. In chronic adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease), in addition to pigmentation of the skin around the eyes, pigmentation in the natural folds of the skin (palms, groin) and in places of friction of clothing (neck, lower back) increases. With kidney diseases (pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis, etc.), bruises under the eyes appear during exacerbation of diseases and are accompanied by impaired renal excretory function.

With an imbalance of female sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone), especially during periods of hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause), there is a risk of hyperpigmentation around the eyes.

Various inflammatory diseases of the eyes (conjunctivitis, iridocyclitis, etc.) are accompanied by edema, increased capillary permeability, which also makes them more visible, as if “translucent”.

In a condition such as vegetative-vascular dystonia (it does not apply to the disease, it is a polyetiological syndrome), dark circles under the eyes are also often found. At the same time, a person suffers from cardialgia, asthenia, neurotic disorders, headache, sleep disturbances, dizziness, respiratory disorders, palpitations, coldness of the hands and feet, trembling hands, swelling of the tissues, sensation of heat in the face, fainting. This list can be continued indefinitely, a different combination of the above disorders can occur.
