However, when those eyes have dark circle around them they not only speak what you want them to speak but also the things which you do not want to reveal to the person sitting next to you. The skin around our eyes is very delicate and thin in the comparison to the other areas of the face. There is no oil gland in this area and has a fine texture. This is why it reflects our external and internal health. There are many causes of it such as aging, neglect, stress, and life style. On the other hand dark circles can be the result of hereditary factors, lack of sleep, illness and nutritional deficiencies. Thus, before trying the remedy one must know the actually causes of it. Today most of the people forget to enhance the nutritional value in their diet which can also result in dark circles. So, we must try to include fresh fruits, vegetables, yogurt and sprouts in our daily diet. Moreover, unprocessed cereals, skimmed milk, cottage cheese, lentils and beans are also essential for flawless skin. Taking rest by stealing some time from your hectic schedule and proper sleep is also very important.
