Dark Circles Under Eyes

My son, now 7 (and diagnosed last year as bipolar), has had dark circles under his eyes for several years (coming and going). My wife and I were talking about it tonight, and she told me that she notices the dark circles under his eyes whenever he's having a bad day, and that when she sees them, she knows he's going to lose his temper.

He is on medication (although I'm not sure of the name of it at the moment) for the bipolar disorder, but could the dark circles actually be attributed to the bipolar? More curiosity than anything else, but if someone could tell me for sure, I would appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

Rick

  • It may be due to his bipolar condition but then there are very easy remedies that you can do at home (make sure that he does it willingly or else it might not work), set the mood for a nice relaxation first before doing these stuffs:1) Application of a thin sliced cucumber on top of each eye for 15 to 20 minutes, twice a day, relieves stress and cools down the eyes. 2) A mixture of almond oil and honey should be applied on the affected area every night before bedtime. You will see a remarkable improvement in two to three weeks. 3) Consume at least two to three liters of water on a daily basis. Water is a very essential remedy in this case and it flushes out the toxins present in the body.4) Tea bags are known to be very effective in curing dark circles. A cold tea bag should be put on top of each eye for 10 to 15 minutes everyday. 5) Make a paste of fresh mint leaves and add a few drops of lime juice in it. Apply the mixture on the eyes and the dark circles for 10 to 15 minutes everyday and see the difference in two to three weeks. 6) Rose water is considered to be a natural coolant for the body and has been an old home remedy for generations. Apply two to three drops of rose water on a cotton ball and gently massage on the affected area of the eye for five to six minutes. You will see the result in two to three weeks. This method is considered to be one of the most effective cures for dark circles. If you wish to use eye creams then maybe you can try BASQNYC Cucumber Tea Eye gel...sure works...look them up at google and you'll see that the ingredients are all antural...:)

Thanks for your time.RickThere is no Corelation between Bipolar disorder and black circles under the eye. He could be gluten intolerant which is found in wheat products. Sometimes black circles are caused by allergy.

  • According to the age and the health condition keep some paste like thing under his eyes, therefore it's better to include such things which effectively work on removing dark circles with out troubling him. They are; apply almond oil on the area and massage around eyes at bed time daily for 3 week, let him drink good amount of water and include vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin E .

  • Make sure he is sleeping well. Also, when he wakes up, encourage him to sit and stand up slowly, rather than just jumping up as young kids are prone to do. This should help at least somewhat.

  • DARK CIRCLES DIET:A healthy diet for dark circles which is full of nutrients is the most essential thing in this case. If the body does not receive its daily intake of nutrients, it may create such problems and maybe worse in the future. Some of the essential nutrients can be found in: 1) Fresh Fruits and vegetables2) Green leafy vegetables3) Cereal crops such as oats, barley, wheat and millets. 4) Fresh juices of fruits and vegetables.A breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be consumed before starting any kind of work.Other Dark Circles Skin Care Treatments1) Washing your face with water and a soft soap every hour is very important. It is very important that your skin stays fresh and cool all the time and free from any germs or bacteria. 2) Daily eight hours of sleep is very essential for the body and the eyes. It is very important that you sleep without being disturbed at all. This is not only good for the eyes but also for the body as you will not have any health problems in the future. 3) "Work less and relax more" should be your main motto if you wish to get rid of the dark circles as soon as possible. Stress and fatigue are two toxic enemies of a dark circle-free skin. 4) Exercising is also very important and should be added to your daily regime. If you remain healthy at all times, you will not encounter any health problems. These suggestions are very instrumental for under eye treatment.
