Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 25-year-old, but my under-eye circles make me appear older.

Kindly help.

Answered by Dr. Suvina Attavar


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Stress, a lack of sleep, short-term sickness, and iron deficiency anemia can all contribute to under-eye dark circles. Fine wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes can also develop as a result of sun exposure. As a result, it is essential that you get at least eight hours of sleep at night and take a nap for 15 to 20 minutes during the day. Ensure that your diet includes foods high in iron, vitamin C, and vitamin K. I advise you to have your hemoglobin levels checked.

I hope this helps.

Thank you and take care.
