Under eye circles and puffiness is not an uncommen problem. It may be caused by a number of reasons including lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, over use of cheap cosmetics etc.

Apart from this, you should use eye creams daily before going to bed. Try Obagi ELASTIderm Night Eye Cream. Your dark circles and under eye puffiness should be gone within a couple of weeks.

Good luck!

puffiness may be caused by using a cream that is too heavy for you...try a gel if a cream is creating the puffiness and use sparingly. dark circles can be caused by numerous things from genetics to diet. try to sleep well, drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and avoid rubbing the eyes too vigorously as this can damage the skin and the blood vessels around the eye socket. hope it helps!
