What Causes Dark Circles & How to Cover Them Up (Scary Mommy blog feature)

Scary Mommy blog featured Dr. Green today in “I Should Know This: How Can I *Actually* Cover Dark Circles?”

The article notes that fatigue isn’t the only reason people develop dark circles under their eyes for instance. “Sleep deprivation causes our skin to become dull and pale, allowing the dark tissues and blood vessels underneath to become more prominent,” explains cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Michele Green. “Fluid can also build up under the eyes when you’re tired, making the under eyes look puffy and casting a shadow that makes the under eyes look darker.” She adds that age and sun damage can also be common causes, along with genetics, as those with “darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation around the delicate eye area due to the higher melanin production,” Green adds.
