Under eye Dark circle treatment

I have been through Periorbital melanosis from last 10 years but it hardly impacted my life in a negative way. When darkness around the eyes gets prominent I clearly feel something went wrong. Either I have not had a good 8 hours sleep last night or I had junk food or I smoked or my water intake was not good the day before I noticed the dark demon around my bright eyes.

10 years and still the blemishes persist as if they have some inborn bonding with me, obviously it is a bonding that is unnecessary and I want to get rid of. I remember once long back perhaps half a decade ago when I consulted a doctor he said don't worry about it, as it appeared without your wish it will one day disappear at once. His words were more of words of a philosopher rather a doctor.

Under eye dark circle in medical terminology is called Peri-orbital melanosis. Dark circles are nothing but the pigmentation around the eyes. In some cases the pigmentation is not severe while in some cases its hyper. When I came across the word pigmentation I recalled the prolonged exposure of my face to the Sun and my bad habit of not using sun cream really made things worse. Even I have not of a habit of wearing sunglasses while I gout in the sun. When the doctor said it may run in your family I thought no its not exactly from a genetic reason rather it was due to carelessness and the history of a fatal typhoid some years back.

Remember that kidney and liver issues may also cause dark circles and the dark signs may serve as a warning that something needs to be seriously taken care of. Dark circles also become visible over the face of a person having deep-set eyes. Mine are deep set eyes unfortunately. Melanin deposition is another cause of darkening around the eyes. It may also come from allergic dermatitis either contact or atopic. Most often found in Asian and African countries while Europeans or the white people seldom have dark circles.
