During these days, when stress is taking its toll because of busy lifestyles a number of ramifications can be seen on the human body. A number of problems arise because of the stress caused due to huffing and puffing to complete the tasks on the To-Do list. One of the side-effects that are troubling the present generation is the presence of dark circles and an appearance of puffiness under the eyes. Dark circles under the eyes are a big concern for people who are beauty conscious. These circles snatch the beauty and freshness of the face only to make a person look ill. This has increased the popularity of pigmentation treatment. Dark circles under the eyes are caused mainly because of excessive fluid under the skin.

Owing to over-weeping tears flow towards the soft skin under your eyes. This causes dark circles. However, it would be wrong to assume that this is the only reason behind the formation of dark circles and puffiness. Hereditary traits, deficiency of iron and other important proteins, lack of sleep, infections etc can cause dark circles. Puffiness around the eyes can be caused due to allergies or a salt rich diet. Eyes are the windows to the world and reflect your inner beauty. The basic eye care includes the use of anti-oxidant eye cream. However, many prefer to go for pigmentation treatment. In this article, I present some of the tips to help you keep your eyes away from dark circles and puffiness through natural ways other than using antioxidant eye creams.
