Can hereditary dark circles be removed from the eyes?


My mom is always telling me that my dark circles are hereditary and that that's the reason why the products i'm using might not work. (though I've only used 2 different products) She also says they won't ever come off. Is it true?
----------

There are many causes of dark circles, from age, heredity, allergies, cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.

If you would like to apply home remedies to reduce dark circles, here are some of my suggestions:
Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (e.g. Knox) from grocery store. Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add one tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute. Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off.Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your dark circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

Is sucking your thumb as a baby hereditary?


My little cousin, my sister, and aunt both sucked there thumbs as a baby. Is that hereditary?
----------

I saw my little one doing it just a couple times in the past, but not anymore, and he doesn't use a pacifier either now at 10 months old. I did, however, suck my thumb as a baby and toddler...it was hard for me to quit apparently. So, I don't think it is hereditary, it just depends on the baby.  (+ info)

can the genders of your children be hereditary?


I'm just wondering because on my dads side its a pattern. My great grandparents had all girls, my grandparents had all boys, my dad had all girls and i dont have any children yet. Idk about my great great grandparents though and so on. So is this pattern hereditary or is it just some coincidence?
----------

Nope it's pure probability.
The male sperm can either be an X or a Y chromosome and the female ovum can only be an X.
If it's and XX then it's a girl and if it's an XY then it's a boy.
You have a 50% chance of getting either a girl or a boy.  (+ info)

Can dark circles under your eyes be hereditary?


I noticed some asked something about them and it reminded me. I've had them my whole life and I want to get rid of them. Can I if it's hereditary?

Yes babe unfortunatley they are common to have if your parents have them! You can't really do much to get rid of them, but you can hide them or decrease them.

1) Use teabags
leave them on for 20 minutes, it reguvinates your skin and makes them softer

2) Drink lots of water

3) Sleep away!

4) Foundation and eye cream is a girls best friend (:  (+ info)

Is giving birth to twins only hereditary?


I am 25 years old and my husband is 30 years old.
I want to have kids as twins. Whether giving birth to twins comes by hereditary ? Are there any chances to conceive with twins?
Only my sister-in-law had twins in our family and we are not blood relations.Hereditary also begins at some point right?
Any suggestions ?
----------

Fertility drugs help but no Dr. will give them to you just so you can conceive twins

Twins come with a higher instance of pre-eclampsia, SIDS, placenta previa, twin to twin transfer and are often delayed for the first few years of life. Why would you want to try for that? I have twins and had kidney failure and the Dr. thought I had a heart attack on the operating table during my emergency c-section ( I did not). The extra attention you may receive during pregnancy and after is not worth all the worry and possible problems.. I love my boys but it was a very hard road to travel. Why not hope and pray for one healthy happy baby?  (+ info)

Does anyone know much about hereditary spastic paraparisis also known as familiar spastic paraplegia?


Has anyone got any info on Hereditary spastic paraparisis also known as familiar spastic paraplegia?? Or has or know any one who has it??Just any info would be great.
----------

My mother and I and 2 siblings all have (correct spelling) familial spastic paraplegia. My maternal Grandmother also had it. My mother is in a chair and I wear orthotics. My eldest sister has the disease the worst of any of the offspring.

As a child my mother used canes to walk, it has now progressed to the point that she uses a wheelchair most all the time. i.e. she does not use it to shower and can stand for minimal time. She still drives but has difficulty lifting her feet to do so.

If you haev questions please feel free to contact me. I will answer any questions I can.  (+ info)

Is there a way to get rid of hereditary bags under my eyes?


How do I get rid of hereditary bags under my eyes?
I have tried potatoes, cold spoons and tea bags but it didn't help at all! Are there any other natural ways to remove them. Or good creams to get rid of them?
And I am pretty sure they are hereditary!

Thanks heaps!
----------

Sadly, no. I have the same issue and I am a licensed esthetician. I have used every eye cream out there.

The best thing you can do is find a really good under eye concealer.

Most people don't realize that the skin under the eye area is seven times thinner then the rest of the face. So you see veins and blood through the skin. Making it appear blue/purplish.  (+ info)

Do you think that anxiety and depression could be hereditary?


Do you think that anxiety and depression could be hereditary?
Its seem like it. My dad used to suffer from depression I dont know about anxiety,and my uncle did too.Thats why I think my uncle became alcoholic,and committed suicide two years ago. Now I 21 and suffer from anxiety ,where I get get constant panic attacks and depression. My two brothers who are 16 and 23 do too. What is wrong with us if its hereditary.Is it chemical imbalance? Is it the way we were raised?When we were kids our parents used to be very strict and didnt let us go outside alot.But our older sister who is 25 right now doesn't have anxiety and depression. So why do I and my brothers have it?How can I get rid off it?Are meds gonna help?Therapy?Religion?Any suggestion will be helpful.
----------

Yes. I think it's heredity. At least that's what I've read. It is a chemical imbalance in the brain. The hormone that is effected is seratonin. That's one of them. Chemical imbalances can cause an array of problems...melatonin disturbances (sleep disorders), etc. There are options to help, such as medication. You need to make an appointment with your doctor and discuss this with him/her. Once you get on a medication that helps, the world will become a much nicer place.  (+ info)

Is shyness hereditary or is it part of upbringing?


Is shyness hereditary or is it part of upbringing? Could it be part of genetics or could it be from strict parenting?
----------

There may be a genetic component-scientists are finding new gene links everyday now. However, shyness also is part of being self-conscious about some part about yourself. I was shy as a teen until I realized that most people are more interested in themselves than they are in me! So focus on making other people happy and you will stop focusing on yourself.  (+ info)

Is having a drug and alcohol problem hereditary?


My mom use to be an alcoholic, and she's been changing very much. She was talking to me the other day, and she said it's a hereditary thing. Like, I might become an alcoholic. Personally, I just think it's just YOUR problem, you can't really go and blame your family because they gave you that trait. I believe that you just have to take control of your own body, and do the right thing so you don't become an alcoholic/drugie.
That's just my opinion though.
----------

I t is like diabetes,if you have it in your family,I truly think that it is passed down.
I only have my own experience.But even in my family,we had all the characteristics
of an addictive family.
Good luck in your search.  (+ info)
