Dark circles are dark halos with purplish shades, more or less marked, affecting the sub-ocular area. Often the problem is trivialized by blaming the lack of sleep, the menstrual period or a "good night"; in reality, if on the one hand these factors can undoubtedly mark the problem, on the other they do not represent the real cause of dark circles. Often, in fact, in predisposed subjects the problem occurs even on days when they have rested more than enough ; the origins of dark circles must therefore be sought elsewhere.

The lighter and thinner the skin covering the sub-ocular region, the more evident the problem is, linked to the presence of blood flowing in the dense capillary network of this area. In the presence of capillary fragility, the rupture of these small vessels (favored by poor sleep, too many hours spent on books or in front of a screen, etc.) causes stagnation of blood components, which greatly accentuate the imperfection. Even some medicines, including warfarin and aspirin, can mark the presence of dark circles. The same goes for allergic phenomena, especially if accompanied by itching, since rubbing the eyes facilitates the damage to the capillaries. The sun is also a typical factor that can worsen the problem of dark circles.
