We've already told you why kale is great for getting rid of dark circles (all that vitamin K!), but according to Perricone, vitamin C foods should also help as you fight the undereye scourge.
"Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by a variety of factors. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, making the blood vessels appear more noticeable, thereby giving the appearance of the dark circles. They can be caused by our lifestyle, heredity, allergies, sinus problems and nasal congestion, sun exposure, and diminished fat pads."
"To help lessen the appearance of dark circles, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties — especially those that are highest in vitamin C, including red and green hot peppers, red and yellow bell peppers, kale, strawberries, and guava."
