There are times when not all the makeup in the world can put an end to the dreaded dark circles. They emerge not only with sleepless nights. They can also be caused by poor diet, stress, PMS, allergies and even by genetic inheritance. Over the years, factors such as age and photo aging favor the increase of dark circles.
The incidence in men and women is the same. But the problem is often more pronounced in women with dark skin, with higher levels of pigmentation. Even with all the advances in medicine, there is still no treatment 100% able to extinguish the dark circles. Already there are cosmetic products and treatments based on chemical compounds that can minimize or eliminate (in milder cases) this problem.
