Are sunken eyes and dark circles making you look tired and aged? Whether it’s the result of sleepless nights, stress or genetics, sunken eyes can make us feel embarrassed and anxious. Fortunately, there are a few options for getting rid of them. Here’s how to do it.

What Causes Dark Circles?

Dark, hollow, or sunken eyes are typically associated with high stress levels, poor nutrition, physical exhaustion and more. While these factors can contribute to dark circles and sunken eyes, the biggest factor is genetics. Dark circles form when blood vessels under the eyes appear more prominently. For some people, this may look more like a shadow, while others experience dark, noticeable circles.

The main cause of sunken and hollow under eyes is aging. Typically, this happens between the lower eyelid and upper cheek. This area is known as the tear trough. As we age, we lose fat in this area, making it appear longer, deeper, and more shadowed.
