Dark circles under the eyes can also be a sign that you're not getting enough water throughout the day. If you're dehydrated, your skin becomes dry and loses elasticity. To test hydration levels, press two fingers on the back of your arm and let go. If the skin slowly fades back to its normal color rather than immediately returning, you're likely dehydrated. Try to drink at least eight servings of water each day, even if you don't feel thirsty. Doing so should keep your skin healthy and reduce the visibility of any dark circles under your eyes.
