One of the most aging things on your face can be a dark circle under your eyes. Although people may think you are exhausted, stressed, depressed or older than you are (these skin concerns can add several years to your chronological age in some cases), dark circles and puffiness are not caused by any of those issues.
Tiny blood vessels, which have burst, are the culprit behind your dark under eye circles. When you bruise on another part of your body, the capillaries burst and blood cells break down, and result in dark blue or black areas on your skin. It’s the same with the area under your eyes – the capillaries in this area are so tiny, the blood cells can only pass through in a single file, which is why the result is a thin line of bruising. What’s behind these burst capillaries?
