Colloquially, we refer to the darkening as 'dark circles'. The medical term is the 'Nasojugal Fold'. The dark circle under the eye is actually a shadow created when the lower eyelid skin adheres to the bone of the eye socket.

Hi

eye circles = dark circles

Also known as "bags under the eyes," there are many etiologies to cause this symptom. For instance, by lack of sleep, by deficiency of vitamin K, by heredity and by bruising.

Sometimes this is hereditary and sometimes allergies can cause this or a lack of sleep. There are products out on the market and make-up tricks to get rid of this. Unfortunately, if it's hereditary in your family it's will be permanent, but you generally can hide them with the proper cosmetics. Go to a good cosmetic salon and let them show you how to conceal them. This goes for men too!

Regards.

V.
