And, because the skin under your eyes is so thin, this creates dark circles. Other causes include an unhealthy diet, spending too much time in front of your computer and stress.

Do you get this it a lot? Consider investing in a good eye gel. This provides hydration and contains the right vitamins. Make sure to apply this product gently, without rubbing too hard.
