By Ezra Rogers

The thing which ages you most is not wrinkles or gray hair but the dark circle under the eyes. Although the dark circles under eyes are not really a sign of serious illness, but they can surely make you feel old, unhealthy as well as tired.Dark circle under the eyes is defined as round and uniform areas of pigmentation under each eye. Dark circles under eyes can affect both men as well as women. Though these dark, under-eye circles usually start in adulthood, but even children too can develop them.There is treatment for black circles under the eyes available which ranges from makeup to laser therapy as well as surgery. But it is always better to have realistic expectations.

A few reasons for having a dark circle under the eyes is lack of sleep as well as late night partying. Fatigue as well as high living are the reasons for these under-eye circles. What may appear to you as under-eye circles can be just shadows which are cast by puffy eyelids or due to hollows under your eyes. But these develop as a normal part of aging.

Pigmentation irregularities are a particular concern for blacks and Asians.
