Dark circles appear as bluish-gray halos in the eye area . They usually appear as a result of sleep deprivation , but aging can also be one of the causes; it causes the thinning of the epidermis in this particularly delicate area, due to a lower production of collagen and elastin which are normally present in the dermis.
Family predisposition can also be one of the determining factors for the appearance of dark circles; in particular, those with a lighter complexion or thinner skin may have more obvious dark circles.
Water retention or dehydration are equally influential: fluid retention can cause dilation of blood vessels around the eyes. On the other hand, even a low intake of water during the day could make dark circles even more evident, due to the thinning of the skin .
