In brief: Salt

Salty food causes swelling or edema around the eye.
The fat around the lid swells up with slat and could cause dark appearance. Allergy around the eye also causes this too.

In brief: Possibly allergies

Dark circles under the eyes or "venous stasis" may be due to genetics, illness, allergy or sleep deficiency.
Consider sinus evaluation with your primary physician, an otolaryngologist or allergist. Monitor your sleep trying to get 8 restful hours. Nasacort (triamcinolone) and many antihistamines are now over the counter also.
