I would not use skin lightener around the eyes because the eye area is so delicate. Talk with a dermatologist

I have talked to my dermatologist and he said there is nothing I can do. But I still want to try something instead of just give up

Try Peter Thomas Roth Eye Rescue. I had really dark eye circles a little bit of bagginess under my eyes, but this stuff took it away instantly.

yeh you might one to try some lighteing creams for the eye area, like Aveeno has an "eye enhancer.."thingy out. However if you had since birth it could be something genetic (like inheritance?) Also you may one to try drinking lots and lots of water. The only time i get those dark circles is when Im dehydrated or sleep deprived.

Thank you for the tip. I have tried almost every product and spent so much money to try to get rid of the dark circles. I have seen though that drinking alot of water can help!

dark circles run in my family. I think it's pretty common in Indian girls since I see lot of my freinds have them too. I drink plenty of water and get alot of sleep. The only thing I can do is cover the circles up with makeup.

I would see a dermatologist about that. There could be an underlying medical condition.

Dark Circles is mostly caused because the skin under the eyes is too thin. There's not much you can do about it I am afraid.

My GF uses the Clear Clinical Eye Defence Cream...morning and night everyday. She is actually from a family with genetically deep set eye sockets so although this isn't the end all, we are happy with the results thus far.

Hi Trisha,
I'm an independent Arbonne consultant. Arbonne is a safe and natural approach to skin care. Yes.......skin lighteners can be used to diminish the appearance of dark circles beneath the eyes. The Arbonne anti-aging eye cream his highly effective. It contains a natural skin lightener called kojic acid. You'll notice a difference in the area beneath your eyes following just a few applications! I hope this helps!

I am a registered nurse. The dark circles under eyes are most often caused by capillaries that are broken and cause pooling of samll amounts of red cells - kind of like a bruise.

Arbonne does have a good product, Mary Kay also has a good product with a type of Vitamin K in it which is used to strengthen the capillaries and stop the leaking of red cells. I have tried them both and they both work well.

Not exactly pertaining to tint, but handy info nonetheless.

Question: I spend most of my time caring for my newborn baby, and needless to say, I no longer get a good night?s sleep. I?ve been trying to hide the dark circles around my eyes with my foundation, but I?m looking for a different solution. Any ideas?

A (Dr. Lisa Kellett): If you?re like most new moms, you?re not getting your full beauty sleep, and it shows. The stress that accompanies a lack of shut-eye causes the blood vessels under your eyes ? where skin is most delicate ? to dilate, resulting in those dark circles.

When outdoors, protect that facial real estate with a pair of mod oversized sunglasses a la Jackie O. And to reduce swelling around the eyes, dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett recommends limiting salt intake and using a cold compress first thing in the morning. Finally, drink lots of H2O. Not only does water keep our skin glowing, it also prevents fatigue by increasing blood flow.

Try Mychelle Professionals "Marvelous Eye mousse." It has Green coffee, ginger and shea butter in it! AMAZING or the Brilliant eye gel which has peptides, magnolia and green coffee.
