I have always had a little problem undereye circles, but since becoming a mommy of 3 crazy boys they have gotten really bad. Does anyone out there have recommendations on a good product for the under eye area or a home remedy that actually works?

I remove my makeup at night with olive oil. It does wonders for my eyes over night.

My friend is a makeup artist and swears by Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Eye Repair. It's not cheap, but it does the job. I just started my skin care routine so I am seeing if it works over a month. I've had black eyes since my early 20's.

I go tanning.  I know everyone recoils in horror at the idea but I go in very small doses like 5 minutes at a time twice a week, it does wonders for my skin.  Tanning with UPF cream is no riskier than the sun plus they say it re-inforces your cadio-vascular, reduces high blood pressure, minimises risks of ostheoporosis and arthritis, gently treats excema & psoriasis (in my cases it gets rid of my stress hives and dry skin) , and naturally promotes production of natural vitamin D in your body - and I get a healthy glow I don't look so white and pasty even though it's mid february .

I get stress hives also, I never thought about going tanning to help it.

Yeah, I get those too!  Everything I put on my eyes just seems to end up getting all the lint from my pillow case into my eyes, which really irritates them.  So I need to read everyone's tips as well!

 it works really really well for me give it a shot ... I go for 5 minute sessions and it makes a world of difference, if your hives are like mine NOTHING cures them, no cream, gel, lotion, the only thing that sort of works is Benadryl
