Welp, one of my friends is seriously screwed as he goes days without sleep quite often. In fact, I'm surprised he isn't dead as I'm no scientist but I'm pretty sure constantly not going to sleep is extremely bad for your health.

I also have dark circles under my eyes, but:
Ummm.... the blue veins on your wrist are actually blue... Where the blood travels around you body, giving off the oxygen collected from the lungs, it runs through the capillaries (I think that is how you spell it) and into your veins. The blood is then deoxygenated (Sorry about spelling) and travels through your veins back to the heart, then to the lungs and back again.. (I could go into more detail but I don't want to bore you :D) Sorry if you said this, I'm 11 years old, and just wanted to seem smart XD
Good day everyone!!

Lifestyle and dietary habits such as sodium intake, alcohol and tobacco aren't mentioned in this video.

Alcohol in particular dehydrates the body and in time causes the appearance of dark circles.

This doesn't cover why I have mine, according to my ENT at least. Certain people have sinus cavities that shaped so that they create these dark circles under the eyes. There's nothing "wrong," per say, but the phenomenon simply forces more blood into the area. They do get worse with sun and stress and exhaustion, like everything else, but it's impossible to get rid of them.

I was also told dark circles were caused by not eating enough leafy vegetables, but pretty sure that was part of the ongoing conspiracy to simply get me to eat healthier.

Oscar DarskiOscar Darski (7 месяцев назад)
Now now guys, there's always hope.
- Get enough sleep.
-Reduce caffeine and alcohol
-Consume less sodium
-Take allergy meds.
-Eat healthy
-Place cold cucumbers or Green tea bags under eyes.
- Get a bit more fat to thicken up eyelids. (Only if you're incredibly thin)

But dark circles are also the result of kidney problems and infections with parasites so you can get them a lot lighter if you eliminate alcohol and get rid of parasites that have been living in your body.
