There are a number of different things that cause these dark circles, but one of the most common causes is the shifting of fat from around the eyes to under the eyes.

Many come to me for help with conditions known as lower eyelid Festoons and Malar Mounds. Curious as to why this is the case, I began to hypothesize why so many people from the United Kingdom might suffer from Festoons and Malar Mounds.
