Make it a rule to sleep at least 7 hours. It is too short 4-5 hour sleep is too short for our body to restore. Then lack of sleep results in pallor, red eyes and bruises under the eyes.

Problems at work or in personal life have a detrimental effect on the nervous system, as a result of which internal processes in the body can be disrupted. In particular, this leads to changes in the harmonic background, and you can see the result on your face. In this case I advise to address to the neurologist, the gynaecologist or endocrinologist.

Illiterate diet.

Fried, spicy, smoked and fatty foods are very harmful for the peri-orbital zone. In addition, the love of coffee and alcohol exacerbates the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
