Are dark circles hereditary on you? Then there are one of more factors that are causing them. First and foremost is the thickness of the skin under the eyes.

Last but not least, bone structure of your face might create shadows under your eyes, which only accentuates the dark cicles.
There are a number of decisions you make daily about how you live your life that can contribute to dark circles.
What’s causing the dark circles when they’re non-hereditary?
