  • For some people they are hereditary and I know they are more common in people who have allergies or food sensitivities. I have them and they run in my family...not much you can do but I think they do have a bleaching product specifically for this area on the market, but its supposed to be really expensive. Other than that, thank god for concealer! sorry i wasn't more helpful.

  • I had this problem during my pregnancy and I used bio. Its for stretch marks to lighten them up but it worked well around my eyes. Its sold in walmart or any drug store for 10 dollars

  • The craxy thing about my dark circles is that I don't have wrinkles and or the deep pocketed look like most women have. So I will take the dark circles any day.

  • dark circles are mostly caused from an underlying allergy or sensitivity.

  • It's mostly heridity, or so my dermatologist says. He told me that i have very thin skin under my eyes, and nothing can be done about that. Some in my family have it, some don't, luck of the draw I guess. So other than concealer, not much can be done.
