If the dark circles under your eyes evoke images of boxing matches, it may be time to get more sleep. But it could also be more serious. An underactive thyroid or a sensitivity to certain foods could be to blame.
If you’re sleeping well, but still have circles under your eyes, consider eliminating possible food triggers from your diet. Start with wheat and then try milk – these are common culprits. If the situation improves upon elimination, discuss possible food substitutions with a dietician. Also cut down on your salt and alcohol intake and drink at least eight glasses of water per day. If the problem persists, pay a visit to your doctor.
