Dark circles under eyes child
Dark circles can occur in kids as well. There are no age Gods saying it cannot.
There could be many factors and this is why it happened for my son. He had allergies which were causing his eyes to itch.
This means he scratches and rubs around the eyes, which causes the blood vessels to break and darken.
Another reason is he was playing too many games on the phone and computer. Tired eyes, stressed and what do you get dark circles.
The third factor was his skin was dry. Dry skin also can cause dark circles.

Dark circles under eyes causes and treatment
Dark circles or blemishes can look really bad and cause a lot of distress. Some blame it on heredity, others say lack of oxygen supply, some say it shows you are unhealthy, so what is it?
What are the causes of dark under eyes?
It could be a sign of ageing. Ageing means skin dries out, reduced collagen etc. Dark circles become more visible.
Some say it could be stress, worry, fear, all this could cause it. I think it could be the lack of sleep maybe. People who sleep less tend to have dark circles but then I have seen people who sleep for fewer hours with no dark circles.
Hence maybe it is how much rest your body and mind get and are not overworked I guess…
I still remember how a kind old gentlemen ( a stranger ) told me that if I drank water and lots of it, I would get healthier. My skin was dry and I was painfully thin.
Years later I learnt about the importance of drinking a lot of water. Water flushes toxins, and makes your skin look supple and fresh. ( That man I later learnt was a doctor who had come to check up on my neighbor)
Are you eating enough?
Eat a balanced meal full of vitamins, proteins and minerals.
Dark circles under eyes home remedies
There are creams, even medical procedures to help eliminate dark circles. I always prefer home remedies as they are non intrusive and actually heal the body.
While some of the remedies I found can be treated as a band-aid fix, true healing comes from within.
Stay hydrated, eat healthy, sleep well and Relax.
Find some activity which will relax you. It could be walking, meditation, dancing, reading, cooking whatever is best for you works …
In the meantime do try out these home remedies for some relief and pampering.
Will cucumber help dark circles ?
Cucumber they say is good and here are few home remedies using Cucumber.
I still remember movies of old when I would stare at the television and wonder why the ladies had cucumber slices over their eyes. I think that was my introduction to beauty…
Apply a thin slice of cucumber on your eyes and let it stay there for 15 to 20 mins.
Done twice a day it should help relieve stress.
Wash with warm water, apply a moisturizer.
You can oomph it to the next level by grating the cucumber and squeezing the juice.
Mix cucumber juice, lemon juice and lanolin cream and apply around they eye.
Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes.
Lemon juice can be applied on the dark circles as well. I have found that I am sensitive to lemon juice so I do not leave it on for long. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.Lemon has bleaching properties and will lighten the pigmentation.
Caution: Do not go out in the sun after that
Dark circles with almond oil
Almond oil is known as the food for skin ( the pure one). Gently massage in a mixture of almond oil and honey every night for 2 to 3 weeks.
It will make your skin soft and work wonders on the discoloration.
Remember the old gentleman’s advice? Well drink up! Drink as much water as you can, no upper limits.
Some ways to lighten up that dark skin. I am still on it and will be updating this post. I am not done yet 🙂
