There are a few bad habits that might be the cause for those dark circles under your eyes

We all have dark circles under our eyes sometimes. You know those nights when you just can’t seem to fall asleep and you look in the mirror the next day and are slightly horrified by what you see there. If you have dark circles under your eyes more or less permanently and you really want to get rid of them, these tips might just be the help you need.

If you want to get rid of the dark circles under your eyes, you have to take a good look at some of your habits.


Dark circles can be very annoying because they make you look really tired while you might not be tired at all. At some point, the circles might even have gotten so pronounced that not even makeup offers a solution anymore. You sleep enough, you eat healthily, you take good care of your skin… So how can it be that those circles only seem to be getting worse? There are a few habits that can make you look like you need to go into hibernation. You just don’t know about them! Break the following four habits and you’ll see a difference really soon. Your face will look much fresher and you don’t need expensive creams, makeup or even cosmetic surgery!


These habits can make you look dead tired and ten years older than you actually are. But don’t despair because they’re easy to break!

  • Washing your face with water that’s too hot: Hot water and steam cause your face to swell and accentuate the dark skin under your eyes. So, stop using hot water and from now on wash your face with lukewarm water. Afterwards, rinse with cool water.
  • Never using sunscreen: You always need to use sunscreen on your face (especially under your eyes!) if you’re going outside, even if you’re just going out for a little bit and it’s not even that sunny. Hyperpigmentation under your eyes is the result of leaving the delicate skin under your eyes to the mercy of the sun and this is what’s causing those ugly dark circles.
  • Using bad makeup remover: Make sure you don’t cleanse your eyes with the same product you use for the rest of your face. The skin around your eyes is much more delicate and can’t deal very well with aggressive cleansing. Always use a mild cleanser for the skin around your eyes.
  • Eating too much salt: Salt causes your body to retain moisture. This will make the skin around your eyes look doughy and swollen. So, be a bit more mindful about the amounts of salt you put on your food!
