Sunken Under Eyes

sunken under eyes

Does this happen as we age?

Is it because of a lack of a nutrient(s)?

What nutrient(s) so I can replace them back into my body to counter act this?

What are the nutrient(s) we lose as we age that results in this happening?

I take lots of nutrients, am very healthy, eat right, exercise, get the right amount of rest, don't do sun hardly.

I also put callogen and elastin and vitamin C and vitamin K cream, and vitamin E into my facial lotion (although it may help if I use my facial lotion every day.  But I use it enough.  I thought these nutrients would help applied to the skin; do they not soak into the skin?  Because I'm still seeing the problem.

What will make them come back up (not be sunken/indented).  I don't have dark circles (because of the vitamin K and good rest, etc., just the sunken part.  No wrinkles (I'm sure this is because of the many nutrients and emollients).

I thought either a dermotologist or a nutritionist would know.  I see this on many people - it's common.  It's got to be some simple nutrient(s) that we can take so this will not happen.  ICK!!!!!

There are many causes of sunken under eyes,the common ones being dehydration,eye conditions like nanophthalmos,microphthalmos,malnutrition,anorexia nervosa,protein losing enteropathy,underactive thyroid gland and lacrimal tumors.

I would suggest you to consult an ophthalmologist and discuss these with him.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.

I don't have any of those conditions.  I am very healthy.  I thought my post would indicate that.

What kinds of things does an ophthalmologies specialize in?

Thanks so much.
