Dark circles (periorbital hyperpigmentation) are common in both men and women. 

Though not of medical concern, constantly tired-looking, puffy eyes can cause emotional distress, especially when accompanied by under-eye hollows or eye bags. 

Although usually associated with stress or fatigue, under-eye circles can, in fact, have a variety of causes.

What causes dark circles?
Aging

As we get older, the collagen production and fat padding in our skin naturally deplete. The skin, especially the delicate area under the eyes, starts to sag and loses its elasticity leading to dark circles and puffiness.

Proper skincare can delay and minimize the appearance of these dark circles.

Lack of sleep

Late nights and inadequate sleep can cause the skin to become pale, allowing the underlying blood vessels to show up as dark circles. Lack of sleep can also cause fluid build-up leading to puffiness or ‘bags’ under the eye.

Ensure you get 7-8 hours of shut-eye every night for clear, bright eyes.

Allergies

Allergic reactions release histamines which cause nasal congestion and increased pressure around the nose. This leads to pooling of blood in this area. The swollen blood vessels are now more visible, causing a dark, bruised appearance under the eye.

Allergies also increase the urge to rub itching eyes, which further aggravates the symptoms.

Genetics

Inherited facial features could be the main culprit of your dark circles. Depending on your bone structure, shadows can cause the appearance of darkness under the eyes even where there is no actual pigmentation. 

Ethnicity also plays an important role with dark circles being more common in people with darker skin tones.

Nutrition & lifestyle

Inadequate intake of water, excessive caffeine consumption, and protein deficiency have a direct impact on dark circles. Ensure that you include healthy foods and at least 8 glasses of water in your daily diet. Also, limit your intake of caffeine, alcohol, and cigarettes.

Rubbing your eyes

Many of us unthinkingly rub our eyes throughout the day, especially when tired or suffering from a cold or allergies. Excessive rubbing around the eyes causes inflammation and swelling of the blood vessels resulting in dark circles.

Sun exposure

Increased exposure to the sun could dilate the blood cells and boost blood circulation. Since the skin around the eye is the thinnest and most delicate, the darkened blood vessels are easily seen through the translucent skin.

Medical conditions & medication

Occasionally, dark circles can be the result of medical conditions like anemia (iron deficiency), thyroid, or asthma. Eye drop treatment for glaucoma may also increase the appearance of dark circles.

Hormonal changes

The body undergoes many changes during menstruation and pregnancy. These hormonal fluctuations can sometimes cause dark circles under the eyes.

Concealers and cosmetics

Under-eye concealers applied to minimize the appearance of dark circles often end up having the opposite effect. Allergies to skin care products and cosmetics are a little realized cause that could be aggravating your dark circles.

Poor blood circulation

When circulation is poor, blood is deprived of oxygen. Deoxygenated blood looks blue, instead of red. Since the skin surrounding the eye is thin and translucent, this gives the appearance of dark circles. If under-eye capillaries become leaky and allow red blood cells into the surrounding area, it can also cause this discoloration. Massaging your face regularly enhances circulation.

Eyestrain

Spending too much time watching television or staring at computer screens and mobile screens strains the eye and causes blood vessels to enlarge. This leads to darkening of the eye area.

Dehydration

If the body doesn’t receive enough water, the skin begins to dull. Dark circles show up quickly as the skin in under the eye is the thinnest. Ensure you drink at least 8 glasses of water to keep yourself hydrated.

01
Blue dark circles

Caused by a lack of sleep, or from stress and allergies. These are due to slow microcirculation, which causes the blood to become less oxygenated and get a bluish tone.

Purple-red dark circles

Most commonly found in people with a darker skin tone, these dark circles are a result of veins showing up under the skin. They are usually a result of inherited family traits or aging.

Brown-black dark circles

Again, more common in darker ethnicities, these brown-black circles are caused by hyperpigmentation due to sun damage or genetics.

Shadowed dark circles

Not ‘real’ dark circles, these are caused by shadows not pigmentation. They are worsened by weight loss and age as fat pads deplete and hollows deepen under the eyes.

I’ve had racoon eyes almost all my life and this product made a huge difference. Aside from making my dark circles disappear, it also helped grow my confidence.

I’ve been using it for 10 days and the marks have definitely reduced. I’m hopeful it’ll make the entire thing go away.

It actually works! I’ve tried creams and similar products but none of it helped. It doesn’t only work, it starts to show a difference very quickly. It also brightens my eyes and makes me look awake.

Heal, don’t conceal

Ozone Signature’s Kanaka Skin Therapy Oil  is an Ayurvedic herbal oil with strong antioxidant properties. It improves blood circulation and brightens the complexion.

Retinol creams are commonly prescribed to treat dark circles. While these do boost collagen production, they irritate the skin causing inflammation and itchiness around the eyes. This encourages rubbing of the eyes which actually worsens dark circles in the long term. 

Kanaka Oil  is a completely natural, quick-absorbing serum packed with high-potency botanical nutrients. This age-old therapy penetrates the deepest layers of the skin to nourish and repair it from within for lifelong wellness, while also protecting against exposure to UV rays.

Fine lines around the eyes tend to accentuate dark circles. Kanaka Oil  moisturizes the skin to smoothen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving it fresh and luminous.

Why is the Ozone solution better?
1
No synthetic chemicals

Treatments for dark circles often contain retinoids which cause excessive dryness, redness, itchiness, and inflammation. 

Ozone’s products are natural, effective alternatives to such synthetic chemicals. Kanaka Oil  is derived completely from plant-based ingredients that naturally cleanse the skin of toxins, purifies from within, regenerates healthy tissues, leading to a safer, but more effective treatment in the long term.

Superior Absorption

Creams are a concoction of fat ‘emulsions’ and water. The water evaporates and the dense fats like mineral oils, paraffin wax or petrolatum (petroleum jelly) are left to create a film on the surface of the skin. The ingredients remain on the surface of the skin, unable to treat or heal the deeper layers of the skin.

All Ozone’s restorative serums use sesame oil as the base. Sesame oil mimics the body’s natural oil production and penetrates the deepest layers of the skin carrying the full potency of our 100% organic, time-tested, herbal remedies.

Your dark circles regimen

Take a few drops of Kanaka Oil on your palm and, using your ring fingers, gently dab the oil around your eye. Use every night and allow the serum to work while you’re asleep. 

Eye massage can also help with under-eye drainage, reducing puffiness.

Gently tap in a circle around your eye with your index and middle fingers to increase blood flow. Go outward along your eyebrow and then inward above your cheekbones toward your nose. Do this 3 times every night before applying Kanaka Oil.

Always be very careful not to pull the delicate skin in this area.

What to expect?

The antioxidant properties of Kanaka Oil boost blood circulation. This can significantly improve the appearance of under-eye circles when they are caused by swollen blood vessels and fluid build-up.

By maintaining proper hydration of the skin, Kanaka Oil greatly also decreases the chances of developing crow’s feet, and fine lines around the eye due to dry skin. Regular application of Kanaka Oil keeps the skin moist and boosts collagen production which helps with dark circles due to aging.

An improvement in physical appearance inspires confidence and reduces emotional stress

You should start to see results in about 10-14 days of regular application of Kanaka Oil.  We recommend making the therapeutic oil a regular part of your skincare regime.

You can also use Kanaka Oil to moisturize and hydrate your entire face and neck, to improve the skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ayurveda and dark circles

The ancient Indian science of Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest proven healing systems. Based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit, Ayurveda seeks to restore health by harmonizing the biological energies (doshas).

According to the Ayurvedic tradition, under-eye circles are caused by an excess of Pitta (fire and water) or Vata dosha (fire and air). Too much Pitta in the body leads to the buildup of heat and toxins which cause dark circles. The Vata dosha increases with age and this aggravates dark circles.

Ozone Signature’s Kanaka Oil  detoxifies the body and rejuvenates the skin. It balances the pitta and vata doshas, bringing the body back into equilibrium. 

Kanaka oil works on the concept of synergy, where different herbs act together to produce a therapeutic effect that is greater than that of its individual ingredients.

Based on tradition and validated by science, Ozone Signature’s 100% organic oils meticulously follow the recipes and processes prescribed by ancient Ayurvedic texts.
