What food to eat, to get rid of Circles under eyes?

i dont eat very healthy, and i think the dark half circles that are under my eyes are because i am not eating a certain food. It doesnt matter how much sleep i get. Is there any food that will decrease or get rid of the ugly half circles under my eyes?

They're hereditary. You can try eating healthier, it might help. Or try the cucumbers on the eyes thing.

Allergies can cause dark circles under the eyes.

Have you tried using some kind of concealer to lighten the area?

Also not sleeping enough can cause dark circles or bags under the eyes

Have you been out partying or reading late with little sleep or not sleeping well recently?

edit: I know you said it doesn't matter how much sleep you get but 1 night of good sleep isn't going to change it so just wondered if you have more bad sleep than good?

Re: What food to eat, to get rid of Circles under eyes?

Hi chickenx10,

In most people this isn't the case, but it can be a sign of a kidney problem. Have you had that checked? My sister suffers from dark circles under her eyes and she hates it. She gets called panda eyes and people who dont know her will ask if she's been sleeping well lately. For her they are caused by her kydneys, and she's very prone to kydney infections.

Best,
Charme

I thought not getting enough iron was one of the possible causes of black bags under the eyes. You might google that or something, and if it is the case then red meat would be one of things to add or increase.

Re: What food to eat, to get rid of Circles under eyes?

I have a similar problem. I am Italian and many of Meditteranean decent have this issue. Usual it is caused by vessels close to the surface. I know allergies are a big culprit. My biggest trigger is milk products.

Re: What food to eat, to get rid of Circles under eyes?

I've had darker circles than normal for a while and i had a blood test recently and i was very low in iron and the doctor said iron deficiency is a possibility for the darkness.

As somebody else said, red meat is an excellent source of iron, but not when its overcooked as that kills the iron. Drinking fruit juices with meals also helps the body absorb the iron in foods much better.

If your family and relations have the same dark circles then it could very well be hereditary.

I also agree with tattoos as allergies and dairy products are noted to also cause problems. Perhaps try going off dairy products and using soy products for a month and see how you go.
