What causes them?

-Heredity: dark eye circles may run in families
-Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
-Lifestyle: stress, Alcohol abuse, lack of sleep
-Nasal congestion: this may cause engorgement of the veins around the eyes that drain the region creating a ---Bluish hue from chronic venous congestion
-Pigmentation irregularities: may be more common in people of color, especially blacks and Asians
-Rubbing or scratching the area
-Sun exposure which induces formation of melanin (substance that gives skin its color)
-Thinning skin and loss of fat and collagen: this occurs with age, making the underlying vasculature more visible

How do you treat them??
