Answered by Dr. Munish Sood 17 hours later
Brief Answer: Prophylactic Aspect Detailed Answer: Dear Damanjeet Thanks for reverting back with your concern 1. since skin around the eyes are thin thus more prone to puffiness and dark circles. 2. any condition that causes the eyes to itch can contribute to darker circles due to rubbing or scratching the skin around them, make sure you are not suffering from any eye allergy,asthma or eczema [if any] 3. Nutritional: It is believed that a lack of mineral iron can cause dark circles as well. Iron deficiency is the most common type [please check with your Hemoglobin level and Iron levels] PS. In Females the skin can also become more pale during pregnancy and menstruation (due to lack of iron), allowing the underlying veins under the eyes to become more visible and thus dark circles 4.Fatigue: lack of sleep can also cause the skin to appear darker? 5. Liver problems: if there is problem with liver function(s), it can be a cause of dark circles [check with liver function tests] 6. Externally local application of Kumkumadi Tail along with use of Even Shade cream (Charak) in evening gives good result. Dr. Munish Sood Naimittika
