Dark Circles Due To Allergies

“The more green tea you drink, the more the allergic reactions are suppressed. Green tea has an anti-inflammatory effect on the immune system.”― Quote by Amy Leigh Mercree, Essential Oils Handbook: Recipes for Natural Living.

Very few people know that allergies (seasonal or perennial ) are one of the reasons for the appearance of dark circles on the face of some people. These are known informally as “allergy shiners”. They are the result of congestion of the nose and sinuses. They appear in the form of dark pigmentation similar to bruising on the skin. The allergic dark circles/bruising is also called allergic facies and periorbital hyperpigmentation.

These dark circles happen when the sinuses get congested, leading to swelling of the small veins below the eyes. Blood starts collecting there with the veins becoming dilated and dark, hence the appearance of dark circles.

Allergies can be caused by a variety of reasons including:

  •  Food products
  •  Naturally found allergens such as certain plants and pollen
  •  Man-made allergens such as cigarettes, fragrances, pollution, and so on
  • Indoor allergens such as dust mite, animal hair, mold, and so on


The people, whose eyes are affected by allergens of any nature, are at a greater risk of acquiring these dark circles/pigmentation or bruising discoloration. This condition is known as allergic conjunctivitis. The eyes get itchy, red, and puffy. Frequently rubbing the eyes makes these allergic shiners worse. It’s always advisable to avoid rubbing or fingering your eye, in case of any issue visit your nearest eye doctor better known as an ophthalmologist.

There are a variety of ways to treat these allergens on case to case basis. They include antihistamines tablets, nasal decongestants, nasal steroid sprays, anti-inflammatory eye drops, and even vaccinations. For your dark circles, a good Under Eye Cream for Dark Circles is recommended side by side with your medication.
