You could also keep 2 spoons in the ice box to put on your eyes first thing in the morning. It really helps puffiness and it's easy to do while you're making breakfast. (07/13/2007)
Of course, none of this will work if it's genetics. And also allergies cause them, so meds might have to be an option. (07/13/2007)
Go to your local health store and ask them for a Blood Cleanser. There are several herbal concoctions which are used for this and this will guarantee disappearance of dark circles. (07/14/2007)
I use Essence of Time Night Skin Conditioning Cream. A two pack at 2 ozs. each, total of 4 ozs.
Available from www.hsn.com. Or 1-800-521-1514 Seasential Products
($22.50 + $5.95 shipping to my house in USA from NJ).
A little goes a long way, lasts a long time, and is great for other uses.
1) rub some on bug bites
2) use as a face and chest cream at night
3) rub it gently into the under eye area at night
Or use an Avon product that works well: Anew Clinical Eye Lift. Both of these products help with my allergy dark circles and lack of sleep dark circles. (07/14/2007)
I'd rather eliminate what causes the puffiness/dark circles, which is usually watching TV in the dark, looking at the computer screen too long, not washing face/eyes with Baby shampoo/water before
sleeping, and not having quality rest. If I placed even dry tea bags on my eyes, as fair as is my skin, I'd have dark circles, lol. God bless you. : ) (07/15/2007)
Like "kaye" said, keeping spoons in the freezer and placing them on your eyes really helps. Simple and cheap.
I read somewhere recently that the only way to get rid of dark circles under the eyes is to have a good supply of Vitamin K in the diet. I'm not quite sure of the science, but it has something to do with Vitamin K's role in blood coagulation. Good sources are cabbage, cauliflower, spinach and other green leafy vegetables, cereals and other vegetables. (07/23/2007)

The only things I know are to:
1) Put a pretty cold wash cloth over your eyes for awhile (perhaps a little under a half an hour?)
2) My mother owns some lime eye gel which smells good, and reduces black/blueness and puffiness.
Sorry, I'm not really good with this kind of stuff. (01/03/2009)
