It's not just the lack of sleep - Netflix being the culprit, in our case - that causes dark circles. There are plenty other reasons that can give you panda eyes.

Let's go through the list of *innocent* mistakes we've all been making, without even realising it!

1. CRYING

Your precious tears aren't just washing away your meticulously applied eye make-up, but are also bringing in the dark ages circles.

OVERSLEEPING

As much as we'd like to disbelieve it, oversleeping is a peril to our bright under-eye area. It's hard to believe that something as harmless as sleeping can bring trouble. Sigh...

EXPOSURE TO SUN

Excessive exposure to sun results in an increase in Melanin, a pigment that gives human skin its colour. As the skin under the eyes is quite thin compared to the rest of the face, the increased level of melanin starts showing up in the under-eye area.

EXCESS SALT INTAKE

Salt is a double-edged sword - Low intake will put vital functions at risk, and going too high can cause fluid retention among other hazards. Fluid retained by the body also result in darkening of the eye area.

IRON DEFICIENCY

Iron carries oxygen to the cells, the lack of which gives a dark appearance to the under eye area. Take a cue from Popeye and gulp down those green leafy veggies, especially spinach to treat your under-eye circles.
