Dark Circles in Men: How to reduce them?

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

No man looks good with dark circles under his eyes. He is bound to feel insecure about his looks and might try to stay away from socialising with people. However, these dark circles won’t be a pain for you anymore. We have a few tips for you to reduce these dark circles that have been bothering you all this while.

In today’s era, the lifestyle of many men has changed completely. Many of them have been working night shifts while sleeping during the day. Add to the fact that we have all been working from home. Which adds to a schedule that might not be idle for our health.

There are also many party people in the town, who would prefer going out the whole night, or binge watching some series, rather than giving their bodies required sleep. This can often lead to dark circles in many men if they do not take care of their lifestyle. But any man is bound to feel insecure about his looks with dark circles under his eyes. And not every man is comfortable in using a concealer to cover them up.

Although dark circles are not dangerous for your skin, they do make you look older and tired (which actually might be true), all the time. The truth is that dark circles can be called a plague which has infected thousands of men and all of them are trying to find a way of reducing them. And we are here for your rescue. Have a look at the following tips to reduce those dark circles that made your world go upside down:

Sleep More (Really)

This is an obvious one! If you have been busy clubbing all night or binge watching Netflix all night, or trying to prove yourself in the eyes of your manager, only to get four hours of sleep, it is high time that you go to bed on time. Although, lack of sleep typically does not lead to under eye dark circles, it does make you look pale which makes the dark circles prominent. So, rather than going for a night out with your friends, opt for sleeping on time to get proper rest. Every man ideally should have 6-8 hours of deep sleep.

Change in Your Diet

Your diet matters a lot when it comes to your skin. If you want to reduce your dark circles, you must opt to change your diet. Firstly, drink enough water so that you are always hydrated. Include food in your diet that has collagen. Foods that are rich in Vitamin C as well as amino acids will increase collagen in your body. Some of the edible items that you can add in your diet are oranges, strawberries, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kiwis and cauliflower.


If you are missing out on your fitness sessions, you need to start working out again. Working out regularly and for a longer period of time will surely boost circulation and will be beneficial for your complexion as well. It is not essential that you join your local gym to work out and lift weight along with running on the treadmill. You can skip that and opt for jogging around the neighbourhood as well.

Quit Smoking

Smoking increases your chances of dark circles.

Smoking can be the worst thing that you can do when it comes to your skin. If you want to reduce your dark circles, we advise you to quit smoking as soon as possible. The fact is that the tobacco that you smoke damages your skin and can break down collagen as well. If you want to get rid of those dark circles, say no to smoking now.

Don’t Rub Your Eyes

Most men have a habit of rubbing their eyes, frequently. However, rubbing your eyes can damage the small blood vessels in your eyelids as well as the skin under your eyes. These broken blood vessels can appear as dark circles, which we know that you want to get rid of.

Apply Sunblock

If you feel that you are too masculine to wear a sunblock before stepping out of the house, think again! The UVA rays of the sun can deeply penetrate into your skin, causing damage to your elastin and collagen. This will only lead to dark circles under your eyes. It will be better to apply a sunblock which has at least SPF 30 (or more) so that you can carry on with your day, without thinking about getting dark circles.


No matter where you are going; work, party or a date, you certainly would want to look fresh and make an impression with your personality. While you are taking care of your clothes and hairdo to make a style statement, it is important that you give enough importance to your skin as well. And the above given tips will certainly assist you in doing so. If you have not tried these tips yet, make sure that you do, so that you look your best, no matter where you are going.
