Whether you're in high school or in college, with all the papers that you have to write, readings that you have to know by heart, and let's not forget the Friday night outs that help you stay sane in school, late nights are inevitable and so are dark circles. While school season can be pretty demanding, at least you have summers and breaks to catch up on sleep. But how long does it really take for dark circles to go away once you start getting enough ZZZs? Dermatologist Rhoda Espino gives us the lowdown.

Q: How long will it take for my dark circles to go away once I start getting enough sleep?

Dr. Rhoda: There are several factors that cause dark circles around the eyes—from the thinness of the skin around it making it extra vulnerable, lifestyle, stress, and of course sleep deprivation. When it comes to fixing puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, there is really no specific timeframe as to when it will go away once you start getting enough sleep because lifestyle and the health status of the person are still important factors to consider. As dermatologists, we advise the patient to go back to their normal sleeping pattern with at least eight hours of sleep to bring back the healthy, natural glow of their skin.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
