Skin between eyes turning black!

"What causes a blackening of skin around the eyes?  I am not talking about dark
circles under the eyes but a severe darkening of the skin 'between' the eyes. If
you place your thumb and forefinger over the bridge of your nose and touch the
inner corner of each eye, imagine that all the skin under the pads of your
finger and thumb - is turning black.  This condition has recently appeared and
is getting worse every day.  I sleep an average of 9 hours a night.... take
vitamins, exercise, but I am a woman entering menopause.  There is no pain or
sensitivity - but people are starting to ask me if I have suffered any 'trauma'
to my face...  Thank you for considering this question."

Hi,

Dark circles under the eyes are most often caused by allergies, illness, a lack of sleep, or heredity. If your dark circles are caused by heredity, you may find that they are almost impossible to completely eliminate.

In the morning, wash your face with cold water to help blood vessels constrict. Then, apply an eye cream that contains Retinol and vitamin K. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to prevent the vitamin deficiencies that can affect your skin’s appearance. Reducing your salt intake will also help improve the look of your skin. One treatment is to massage almond oil with honey around the eyes before going to bed.

If you’re feeling very self-conscious about dark circles under your eyes, you can try to use makeup to help camouflage the problem.

Regards.
