This is not something natural but is just an outcome of fight between our busy schedule demanding our presence everywhere and our body’s requirement of sleep and rest. Generally what happens is when our eyes don’t get the required sleep or rest, the nerves start getting weaker and it results in darkening of area under eyes.
As life, these days is no less than a marathon; hectic work schedule, family events, relationships, friends, etc etc. A person has so much to do in a day that he barely gets few minutes for his/her self.

It makes one look tired, exhausted, unhealthy and older.
