    Extreme dark eyelids and circles

    I have been trying various things this past couple of years and I have lightened my skin tone considerably. I now look like a raccoon with extreme dark eyelids and dark circles under my eyes. Nothing I do has helped. What can be done to lighten them?

    @Uvasag get some ikb gel. Use it every day am & pm, use sunblock obviously as well.

    Ive got the perfect remedy for you.
    potato juice.

    Grate potato and squeeze its juice. Put this in a little container, sealed and refrigerated. only grate enough to last you at least 2-3 days.
    Spread this on with a cotton pad. It'll dry and leave it on overnight.
    You can even do it during the day, but its always best before bed. wash you face and apply this in the eye area.
    Wash it off with warm water in the morning.

    Keep doing this for weeks and months, you will eventually see a huge difference.
    Ive done this for dark areas on my neck, its really helpeed!!

    Try to stay away from using harsh chemicals in this area. its very delicate.

    Thanks Summer123 - I've tried various home remedies and even to this day I do. Unfortunately these are stubborn dark color and need something more strong.

    Thanks PatisMe - Can you suggest a brand? I'm in USA and on Amazon almost all have mixed reviews.

    @Uvasag i dont think lightening them further would solve the issue.. try vit c serum and also use rosehip oil... use ss as well as suggested above.. consider incopetating vitc supplements to ur regimen so it also might support u from the inside..

    Are you Indian in descent? Your skin tone is very uneven overall what skin shade were you to begin with?

    Yes of Indian descent and yes uneven skin tone and very rough skin because of Keratosis pillaris on my jaw line and under my chin. I see all you guys have such smooth skin. Not sure how to tell skin shade but use Mac foundation N44. Any suggestions please? I use a Vitamin C serum, Hyaluronic acid daily, Just got ikb gel for my eye lids and do weekly 70% glycolic peel at home(about 5 minutes).
