I have never given much attention to this dark puffy circles around my eyes because I just thought that it will just go away. There is logical reason why I'd think that this thing around my eyes would just go away because I have had sleepless nights. So I thought that sleep would be the solution. But it had been months and months since I have already recovered from my sleep debts, but my eyebags stayed. What am I gonna do? Anyone who is kind enough to tell me what I'm gonna do? Please? I'm desperate...

Hi there! I looked at your profile and saw the you're from Philippines too. You could try the product of HBC which is "cucumber eye cream". I costs less than 100 Pesos. That could help you lessen the dark puffy circles around your eyes. I also have a problem like yours but now my dark cirlces lessen because of using hbc eye cream. There is no harm trying that product.

hello there. :). Thank you so much for recommending a product. I'd really love to try whatever product that is available, but I'm afraid to try anything because I have gazillion allergies. :(. I hope I can have a way of knowing if it can cause allergic reaction or not. But, maraming salamat to the nth level. :)

I see that someone else has already recommended a good eye cream. You should start using it and be faithful to it! Use it nightly! A tip I have learned is to keep it in the refrigerator. The coolness will help get rid of any swelling. It also feels great! Very soothing and relaxing to have it chilled -- especially in the summer months! Good luck!

heya. dont worry. my girlfriend mum had this same problem. it was due to lack of sleep and stress. she went to the doctors and they subscribed a general cream and said that she should wash around her eyes with baby shampoo, and after a few days to a couple of weeks this should dissapear. and as strange as it sounds i am not lying. i hope this helps you. and in a few days please could you reply to me and tell me whether the seriousness of it has gone down. thanks.

I have heard of people putting Preparation H around thier eyes to take down swelling. Also daily use of a Vitamin K cream is dupposed to reduce dark circles. Try to make sure you are getting enough water each day and a multi-vitamin pill can't hurt either.

Hi there. Someitmes Dark circles under the eyes are due to lack of sleep... Im no doctor but i read an article on dark eyes... Read this: Almost everyone gets dark circles under their eyes from time to time. Dark circles under eyes usually are temporary and not a medical concern. You may be surprised to learn that fatigue usually isn't the cause of dark circles. Instead, the most common cause is nasal congestion. When your nose is congested, veins that usually drain from your eyes into your nose become widened (dilated) and darker. Another cause of undereye circles is eyelid swelling during sleep. When you lie down, gravity can cause fluid to collect in your lower eyelids. This swelling may create the appearance of shadows below your eyes. In addition, dark circles can result from chronic skin conditions, such as atopic eczema. Dark circles can also run in families. Over-the-counter products may help diminish dark circles under eyes. Look for skin creams that contain vitamin C or K, alpha hydroxy acid and kinetin. Treatment for chronic and severe undereye circles is directed at the underlying cause, if known, and may include bleaching agents and laser therapy. Goodluck with your puffy dark eyes...

Try a vitamin B-complex or some iron tabs.Get a blood test and see what minerals you are deficient in, it's a good way to narrow a large spectrum down.

I have the same problem dear. I guess the circles goes well with the headaches spells im having. I love putting spoon to cool the area, i dont know if it has something to do with chasing the pufs away but it felt better after i put the spoon. LOL
