5 effective lifestyle changes to get rid of dark circles

Dark circles can be caused by straining eyes, lack of adequate sleep, stress and other biological factors. Here are some lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce dark circles.

Follow a proper sleep hygiene

Maintaining a healthy sleep hygiene is essential to prevent sleep deprivation that further leads to the formation of dark circles.

Eat a healthy diet

Consuming a nutritious and balanced diet is highly beneficial in reducing dark circles. Stress-reducing foods such as almonds, fruits, and green vegetables help promote blood circulation to your eye area and reduce dark circles.


Meditating can help relax your mind, reduce stress, and promote blood circulation to your eyes, helping in the de-pigmentation of the undereye area.

Practice stress reducing activities

Practicing activities that help you relax such as painting, playing a sport or dancing can help reduce stress that contributes to forming dark circles.

Reduce your screen time

Try to reduce your screen time and avoid scrolling through your phone during bedtime to promote quality sleep and reduce dark circles.
