Does anyone have a cure, remedy or any way to get rid of dark circles around the eyes??

No,it's not from lack of sleep! I got the dark circles several years ago with pregnancy and they never went away! I am sick of the look of it and I don't want to deal with trying to use make up to cover it up! years ago the doctor said it was common in pregnancy and may not go away, he said it's not harmful but I just want to try to get rid of it! I am sick of the way people look at me and comment on it sometimes!!

  • try a combination of : getting enough water so you aren't dehydrated..and also as app mentioned vitamin e-oil may work. I use Aloette and it is great. I also love Burts Bees and the eye cream is fantastic!! I too have dark circles, but I have some complicated medical issues right now..and not getting enough rest at all.but I also don't drink enough either. I too have heard that bare minerals is excellent makeup. It may be worth a try, and from what I hear, they are very good for your face. It could just be pigment change in your skin or even an allergy to something. My oldest ds has severe allergies and get really dark at this time of year and we have to bump up his meds..Hope you find something that helps..and let the rest of us racoon eyed mamas know please!! LOL
