    Yes, of course, stress can cause dark circles under your eyes. as we know that when you are stressed, it can lead to the disorder of your body. In some degree, it can affect the eyes. Also, stress can make you have bad rest and sleep. In that way, it can lead to dark circles. To treat them, the first thing you should do is to keep relaxing. As we know that relaxing might help remove sources of stress and anxiety that are preventing you from sleeping, eating and resting properly. So that it can relieve the dark circles. Also, cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes, providing a fast "pick-me-up" for tired and puffy eyes. But on the other hand, they can also be good for the dark circles. So just put a slice over each eye, extending over the darkened area. Remember that you should do this everyday, coupled with lying down for 10-15 minutes. Anyway, you can have a try.

    Well, as far as I know, sometimes disordered life style and living habits could indeed lead to dark circles under eyes, such as a serious lack of sleep, smoking too much and some other. Perhaps you got the dark circles due to your lack of sleep resulted from work stress. So there are always ways to get rid of them. My advice for you is to get adequate sleep on a regular basis and pay more attention to your eyes, if possible try to get some health care products such as Vitamin A and C.

    The most typical causes of dark circles are unsmooth blood circulation due to fatigue, sleep debt and mental pressure. Also it is an indication of lowering renal function. If you let it alone, dark circles will become darker and darker, even can lead to aging skin such as the limp eyelid, wrinkle, etc. Once dark circles form under the eyes, you need to ensure ample rest and keep your mood relaxed as far as possible. In addition, appropriate amount of aerobic exercises helps, it can enhance cardiopulmonary function to promote the blood circulation, in this way, it helps get rid of dark circle. Furthermore, you can apply cold compress alternate with hot compress onto your eyes. Eye massage also has an effect of reducing the dark circles.
