Under-eye hollows are the sunken or dark appearance under the eyes that can make a person look tired and older.
What causes under-eye hollowness?
Under-eye hollows can be caused by a variety of factors, including
- The skin around the eyes can lose volume and elasticity as we age, leading to under-eye hollows.
- Some people are genetically predisposed to under-eye hollows.
- Lack of sleep can cause dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, making the hollows appear more prominent.
- Dehydration can make the skin around the eyes appear sunken and dull.
- Certain medical conditions, such as sinus problems, allergies, and thyroid disorders, can exacerbate under-eye hollows.
- Sun exposure can cause the skin to lose elasticity and volume, leading to under-eye hollows.
- Sudden weight loss can cause the skin to lose elasticity and volume, leading to under-eye hollows.
It is essential to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the specific cause of under-eye hollows and to determine the best course of treatment.
Are there natural treatments for under-eye hollows?
While not entirely effective in permanently removing under-eye hollowness, natural therapies can reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows. Some of these include
- Drinking plenty of water
- Getting enough sleep
- A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals
- Eye creams and serums that contain ingredients such as caffeine, retinol, and hyaluronic acid
- Placing cold compresses over the eyes can help reduce swelling and improve blood circulation
Natural treatments may only work for some, and the results may vary depending on the severity of the condition.
