June 1, 2020 (IANSlife) Lack of sleep is the main reason behind getting dark circles. But it is not the only cause. Looking at the screen constantly for long duration results in tired, itchy and dry eyes; rubbing the eyes can lead to darkening of the undereye skin.
Also, High-energy visible (HEV) light or blue light released from these devices not only disrupt our circadian rhythm but also generate free radicles responsible for pigmentation, fine lines and premature ageing, points out Dr. Veenu Jindal, MD Dermatologist.
High-stress levels increase the levels of cortisol in our body which also lead to dullness and wrinkles. An unbalanced diet as well as less water consumption also increases the appearance of dark circles, she adds.
Dr. Jindal shares quick home remedies that can help get rid of dark circles.

What to do on a regular basis to keep dark circles at a bay?
Start with having a proper schedule, this also brings the sleep cycle to normal. It’s easy to monitor screen time by setting a time limit to most-used apps. One should build hobbies away from the screen such as cooking, gardening or playing board games. Utmost importance should be given to eating healthy and staying hydrated. Salt contains sodium which causes the body to retain water and bloat, leading to more prominent under-eye bags. Cutting down on processed foods, fatty meat, canned beans, and other foods that contain high amounts of sodium helps in reducing the under eye bags. Seasonal fruit and vegetables are a great source of antioxidants which help in getting the glow back.
