Do you have Dark Circles around your eyes?Try these remedies!

We often can see men and women with dark circles around their eyes. Then we think that those people are tired, without energy or sometimes ill.

We call them bags. They are actually a condition in which melanin is produced in excessive quantities. Also, the capillaries under the surface of the skin dilate.

In most cases they appear by a lack of sleep, pollution,  smoking cigarettes etc.

Generally, bags under the eyes “go together” with an inflammation in the eyelids. However, not all cases take that form.
