How can I get rid of these dark circles under my eyes?

Dark rings around the eyes are a common problem. Did you know that the eyelid skin is the THINNEST skin found anywhere in the body? Consequently, the eyelid skin is relatively transparent. The darkness relates to circulating blood in the soft tissues beneath the skin.

Some people believe it is actually pigment (melanin); however there has never been any biopsy proof for this claim. Chronic irritation, illness, poor nutrition, fatigue and many other conditions can accentuate these rings. Conversely, adequate rest,
good nutrition, and overall good health tend to make the circles less noticeable.

See Dr. Koganovsky if any of these problems sound familiar. On particularly difficult days consider use of hypoallergenic occlusive makeup.
