Like most people, you have probably looked into the mirror at some time and noticed that you had some kind of dark circles located under your eyes. Contrary to popular belief, these circles are not caused by being tired or through lack of sleep, though these do make you seem to be exhausted. This condition can actually, believe it or not, be inherited like bad allergies, varicose veins, or eczema.
If you are one of those unfortunates who seem to get these dark smudges under their eyes, stop and think about when they seem to be their worst. Chances are they are usually at their worst when it is during hay fever season. Just because there seems to be a link between the circles and allergies, or genetics, does not mean that you cannot do anything about them, and make them less of a problem for you. There are several options that are available for you to use to make the circles less prominent or appear to go away.
