Dark Under Eye Circles and Bags Can Be Beaten

Dark under eye circles and bags can be beaten if one understands what they are, what causes them and what can be done about them. Unfortunately, most people allow them free reign and do nothing other than try to cover them up. Luckily, there are many ways to fight dark under eye circles and the puffiness. The unfortunate thing about dark under eye circles and bags cause people to look older than they actually are.

What are under eye circles and bags, exactly? The actual term for dark under eye circles is oxidizing hemoglobin. The oxidizing hemoglobin begins with the capillaries. The capillaries are the vessels which hold blood that is oxygenated; they are so tiny in fact, that the hemoglobin must line up to pass through. The capillaries around the eyes lie very close to the surface. Often these cells leave their fixed path and end up in the skin where the enzymes shatter them, as well as the hemoglobin. When this occurs, the dark under eye circles result.
