Tell us a little about your lifestyle.

1) How is your sleeping pattern?
2) Diet?
3) Exercise?
4) Stress levels?
5) Are you taking any medication?

You can try every remedy in the basket, but until you take care of the above underlying issues, it might be difficult for you.

I think dark circles may be hereditary, but also a contributing factor is sun exposure. There are some great products that can help reduce them, but I would make sure your wearing sunscreen on a daily basis. Jeannie

I have very pale skin, so have undereye issues, especially if I am tired or dehydrataed. I have tried several products for this without success. The ones I tried were pretty steep price-wise. so I gave up- it was too expensive with no payoff.

If you have circles dark enough that people comment on it, I've heard that it could be allergies, even if you don't have any of the conventional symptoms.

Jane Iredale Amazing Base is good as a concealer, if used with a soft brush- make a slurry of it with water and dab it on. When it dries, go over it gently with a power puff or sponge. I've tried her real concealers, as well as others, and they are too heavy for me. Amazing Base is mineral makeup, but different from the two other kinds that I have tried. I really like it, but it's important to remember that less is more when applying. Amazing Base has a natural SPF of 20, as well.

Years ago I remember when we all used Preparation 8...but I think the formula has been changed.

I have had dark circles since I can remember. I get plenty of sleep, no allergies, eat right, exercise, take vitamins, etc., but they NEVER go away. I do believe they are hereditary, unfortunately, as several members of my family have them as well. I haven't bothered with any of the creams because I figure if they actually worked no one would have dark circles, just as no one would have cellulite IMHO. I did hear about some surgical procedures involving fat injections as some dark circles are supposed to be due to thin skin, but that seems a bit extreme to me. So, as it seems I am stuck with them, I am also on the look out for a good cream concealer that won't cake. Sorry I don't have the solution and wish I did, just wanted you to know you aren't alone in the frustration! Good Luck!

One of my daughters has those "coon eyes" so does her father, but not nearly as bad as the daughters..She does have allergies, especially ones that affect her sinuses, also has congestive heart failure..Some drs says it is her health, others say it is just hereditary..She had the dark circles almost her whole life..Sometimes they are so dark it looks almost like coal smudges..
