I'm only 24 and in the past year I've noticed I have dark eye circles! I first noticed that I have to wear more concealer than I used to and when I wash my face it looks like my eye makeup smeared and didn't wash off! They're not puffy, just purple blue grayish half circles. I wouldn't call them bags. It doesn't run in my family and I don't have allergies. I do wear contacts and press on my eyes in the shower to keep water out, but I've been doing that for years and years. I also try to sleep slightly elevated so blood doesn't rush to my eyes. The skin there just seems really thin.
My dr tested me low for iron though not anemic. She told me to take 2 iron pills a day. I eat spinach and kale a lot, oranges too. I snack on pumpkin seeds and eat chickpeas a lot and prunes for vit k. I just got spiraling and vega which have iron too so hopefully that helps.
My thyroid is slightly low and I've been on levothyroxine for several months although I don't know if I'm technically hypothyroid.
Any other vitamin deficiencies that could be causing this? I want to cure it not cover it up! I got Myshelle under eye gel and it does NOT do a thing! In the mean time I'd appreciate any products or remedies you've tried that work. I don't want to look sick or tired anymore!
