I use an organic eye cream by Aguacate & Co. Has helped to reduced the dark circles around my eyes. I also have started using their serum and exfoliating creme. Have noticed that my skin has lightened in color and is more radiant. Hope this helps you

I use Arbonne skin care and Merle Norman cosmetics. I get lots of compliments. I love both Arbonne and Merle Norman Preventage hand lotion (one at home and one at work). They are both fabulous! As far as dark circles under eyes, just keep in mind that some of these are genetic and some are broken blood vessels. You may just have to find the best concealer that works for you.

Wow ,not to many people now of these products ......Shhhhhh. I thought it was my secret weapon I love the NutriMinC products.
Pricey though.

I also have darkness around/under my eyes. I went to an asthetisian and was told it was due to aging but also sun damage and that I had not been faithful with sunscreen. I have the driest hair and skin ever.

I have a close friend whose father is a dermatologist in Dallas, Texas. He has created a skin cream that evens the tone and color of the skin; I will be ordering it soon. I was told it needs to be put all over the face, not spot treated. It's called Blackburn's mixture by Dr. Raymond Blackburn. Johnson and Johnson tried to negotiate a deal to by it some years ago, but he wouldn't give it up. The success rate with this cream has been good and you see results in about two weeks. So many creams claim to lighten dark areas. I have tried PDF and Skinceuticals Phyto+ neither of which worked. Skinceuticals, however, has excellent moisturizers for different skin types, and just good skin care products in general; their C+E eye serum for wrinkles is a very popular product, and amazing! The great thing too, is they don't use a lot of chemicals, but instead try to make all natural products. I also find Hope in a Jar by Philosophy to be quite awesome for moisturizing.

Hope this helps!

Diet can help, omega 3's either in a supplement-(make it a good one) or foods like salmon-herring-sardines. A great cover up for them is by Jane Iredale cosmetics called circle delete. Mineral Makeup-very nice line-no chemicals-good luck!
Couldn't find Ponds DeFEYE whatever, I knew DHC was great but not for eyes? COOL. Where do I find Vit K? dab it under my eyes?
I am sleep deprived and dehydrated, but learning to takle care of my health.
I am not faithful with sunscreen at all, was a sun worshipper up until last summer and I do have 1 broken capillary under one eye. I want correction not cosmetic.....
This Murad stuff seems to be working, I don't drink soda--just coffee and water.

I've been using Kinerase for about 6 months, it's a bit pricey but it works really well. My pores have diminished about 75% and my skin looks dewey ( for lack of a better word) even in the evening after a stressful day.

Best skin care: lots of water, not much sun, sunblock everyday, no smoking, low alcohol consumption. I use Neutrogena, after trying all the expensive stuff. I like the Facial Cleanser (orange) I use it in the shower and the daily moisturizer with SPF 40. My skin is clear 99% of the time.

According to my husband since I started using Monsia Skincare, he says that my skin has a very healthy glow.
