I am wondering if anyone out there has any good ideas for getting rid of the dark circles and bags under my eyes. I have had them all my life and they are really getting to me. I am just trying to fight the age old fight of aging at this point.

I did this for my girlfriend (I'm a guy) and it worked wonders: Get yourself some pure vitamin E capsules or oil, create a "cold pack" by freezing a wet washcloth in a plastic bag and a "warm pack" by heating a wet washcloth in the microwave, and putting it in a plastic bag (stovetop works,too)... Apply the warm pack to the area to open the pores and get the blood flowing... pierce one of the Vitamin E capsules and apply the oil to the dark circles (avoid getting this in the eyes), let the oil soak in for a few minutes, then apply the cold pack, for about five minutes... Repeat this regimen for about three more times (total 20 minutes) and you should start to see results... this treatment should be used every three days or so for lasting effects... start taking vitamin E and A in capsule form as part of your diet. Use more Olive Oil in your cooking as well as on your skin, too... it couldn't hurt. My girlfriend was amazed to say the least... this treatment was taught to me by another girlfriend who is an Esthetician, she made a bucketload of money, and moved back to her homeland... so I guess you could say she knew her stuff! :) More resources: http://www.hair-n-skin-care.com/ http://www.expertvillage.com Enjoy! :)
