Today's life is very hectic. Jobs are requiring more and more 
hours, raising children takes a lot of time, and the daily 
activities of living complete the last minutes of our busy day. 
It is hard to look energized and refreshed with the hustle and 
bustle of a fast-paced life.

Most people usually are tired, worn out and look absolutely beat 
down. Their eyes look tired and are ringed by dark circles. 
Stress is written all over their face.  This is why many people 
age more quickly in their face than in any other part of the 

It is very important to look energized and refreshed all day, 
every day. Looking tired is a sign of stress and disorganization 
in your life. Often, if you have dark circles under your eyes, 
you look sick or as if you have problems that kept you up too 
late. People see dark circles under your eyes and think the 
worst. No one takes the time to consider the true reasons for 
dark circles. Those dark, ugly circles can cause people to 
speculate and gossip about you.

There are many techniques that can help you look more energized 
and refreshed. Daily stretching, exercising, invigorating 
showers, meditation, warm baths with relaxing bath salts or 
bubbles, body messages and aromatherapy are all common therapies 
that can help you feel alive and less stressed. These treatments 
work, but they can cost a lot of money and can take up valuable 
time that you don't have to spare. So what can you do?

When a person is feeling tired, worn out or exhausted, they tend 
to get dark circles under the eyes. When you do not get enough 
sleep, the muscles around the eye relax or lose their tone. When 
this happens, water builds up and creates a puffy look. This 
puffy look can also appear as dark circles. This is especially 
true for older people because aging is another cause of the dark 

Unfortunately, many people also inherit dark circles. Genetics 
can cause you to have an ugly, dark puffiness below your eyes. If 
your mother, father, grandmother or grandfather had dark circles 
under their eyes, chances are you will also have them.

Dark circles can also be caused by extreme allergies. The buildup 
of watery fluids in the eyes can cause the eyes to have the dark 
circle appearance.

According to Dr. Fred Alexander, a specialist in eye treatments, 
"Professionally, I've seen these circles disappear in individuals 
who stopped drinking high amounts of coffee and alcohol, 
increased their water intake and started eating a healthy diet 
that includes lots of raw fruits and vegetables.

Additionally, if you are a person who eats meat two to three 
times per day in moderate to large amounts and not drinking 
plenty of water, your kidneys may be signaling you that they're 
a bit tired of working that hard!

High protein diets will cause your kidneys to work harder than if 
you were eating less meat and more good carbohydrates, veggies 
and fruit! If you suspect environmental allergies to be the 
culprit, address the problem via an allergy/environmental healthy 

For hundreds of years, people have tried everything from cucumber 
juice to expensive chemical peels and plastic surgery to try to 
be rid of their dark circles. Most of these solutions, including 
surgery and chemical peels, are only temporary at best. 
Sometimes, they do more harm than good because temporary or 
permanent scaring can occur from surgery or allergic reactions 
can occur as a result of using chemical peels or cucumber juice.

If you look tired because of dark, puffy circles, you may want to 
try a treatment that is designed to hide the discoloration below 
the eyes called Ocuderm(tm). It can be found at Amazon or at

Ocuderm's(tm)main purpose is to hide or fade dark circles and 
reduce puffiness below the eyes. This treatment is effective 
at reducing puffiness and darkened circles below the eyes. 
Ocuderm(tm) will help you look rejuvenated and refreshed 
every day by reducing the dark circles below the eyes.
