Hi everyone I'm new to the forums.
Ever since middle school around the 7th grade I have had a little problem with dark circles, but they started worsening after I started High School. Now at the age of 25 and after 2 kids they are even darker! Before I didn't mind them and learned to embrace them, but my significant other started pointing them out when we first me, I still didn't care much, but now I'm finally starting to and wanting to get back my "childhood days" skin before I started the 7th grade, which is around the time I started menstruating by the way. I'm not sure if it's a lack of iron, since I always suffered from anemia, but I want to do something. I started taking iron supplements, but don't see much of a difference and I also have sleeping problems, but I'm starting to tackle that by taking Melatonin and it's starting to help immensely.
4 days ago I started bleaching the skin under my eyes. I have read on this dark circles website that 3-4% Hydroquinone which is what my cream has will help lighten them. I know a lot of people say it's bad and it's not recommended, but I'm actually looking for people who have tried it and had results. Also, if you can post some before and after photos that would be awesome. Thank you
