How can I get rid of dark eye circles?

Don't make the mistake thinking that dark circles around the eyes is all about lack of sleep. They can be a symptom of an allergy or food intolerance. That could lead to inflammation and darkening of the area around the eyes.

What you should do:

  • Get tested for food intolerance. While waiting for the test results, exclude all potentially dangerous products from your diet — for example, foods containing lactose. These include dairy products, bread, chips, instant coffee, instant soups, and artificial sweeteners.

  • If you are not allergic to anything, the dark circles may be a sign of dehydration. Drink enough water, and don't drink too much coffee.

  • You should also include food that contains iron. Such food increases hemoglobin levels. So eat more red meat, tuna, egg yolks, and buckwheat.
