I know being aenemic (sp?) is associated with having dark circles under your eyes, so if that's the case, there isn't much you can do. But also, I've seen this stuff in an Avon magazine where it's supposed to lighten undereye circles. I don't know if it actually works or not, as I'm not going to shell out money for that stuff. I have somewhat dark undereye circles, so I just put the liquid foundation on under my eyes. It doesn't get rid of it completely, but it does reduce how dark the circles are.

Thanks for your respond. hehe, like you, i dont really want buy those expensive stuff which might not bring any results. There was one time (and my first time) that I spend about USD300 to buy a set of skincare products, well, i dont see any difference in my skin at all after the completion of the course.

The stuff in Avon actually isn't too expensive, or as expensive as you'd think. Most people would think something like that would cost over $50, but I don't think it costs anymore than $20. I know a lot of people tend to be skeptical about stuff that would for real or not, but Avon seems to sell genuine products. Like a girl I used to work with, she bought a tube of this gel you apply to your stomach for stretch marks and she said it did lighten the stretch marks. And the product for the stuff to lighten your circles wasn't all you get. I think the package was like a 3 in 1 type ordeal. You get the stuff to lighten your eyes, stuff to reduce wrinkles and something else, I forget. haha

The root cause for that was mainly due to the eyes were not getting enough rest and more likely the reason for that was sleep very late.....I think its very normal to see lots of peoples sleep very late like 2,3am especially if you are online you wouldn't even notice the times pass by so fast. I think the best way to overcome it was try to get rest a little bit early every night instead of paying money that mostly come with nothing. Try to sleep early and wake up early...this will help a lot to slow down aging problems:)

The nice thing about avon is ...money back guarantee. They have a product called Lighten Up which is for under eye circles that alot of people like, but I found the Luminosity face cream to work better. So one or the other may be better for you, but like I said...money back guarantee. At least here in the US, but I think their policy is the same everywhere. Check first. But their products are very good. And another thing about avon, even though they are not too expensive, everything goes on sale now and then! Aloha!

Dark circule - Dark circule
A diet rich in vitamin A is good for the eyes. E.g. Carrots, Apples, etc. Eat green leafy vegetables to reduce dark circles under the eye. Cucumber juice applied over the eyes and under eye areas helps in relaxing tired and puffy eyes. To lighten dark circles, apply the juice of mint leaves mixed with almond oil and honey under the eyes before bed time every day.

I usually do this:- take 1 small lemon and grind it then mix the juice with 1 spoon of honey.For better result, u may want 2 mix it with an egg.Stir the mixture well.Then, scoop the mixture and put it on 2 slices of cucumber.Wash ur face before leave the cucumbers on top of your eyes.(stay for 10 to 15 min) Lemon is good for peeling thus make the dark circle disappears.As for the honey, it soothes the skin.This is important especially after the slight peeling by the lemon.Egg is good for softening to the skin and cucumber is cooling.It normally takes 2 days before u can c the result. Hope this helps..

Wow! Amazing! you deserve + for this...but i dont get it...how to scoop the mixture and put it on the cucumber? that would means that when we put the cucumber on our eyes, the mixture will still be on top of the cucumber? hmm...this is confusing...i may be kinda blur..but pls enlighten me..i might wanna try this out soon, cos you said 2 days...! that's fast result!

There was a similar discussion posted by some one and I have given my suggestion there. Let me repeat it in here and hope this helps you.Let me share with you all the natural treatment my wife did and that realy worked on her. First get two almonds soaked in water for say 12 hours, its better soak them in the morning, and then before u going to sleep, grind the almonds in a paste and rub on Ur's face and let it dry on Ur's face, say for 30 minutes and then wash it with lukewarm water. And in a week time yours face will glow and all the dark circles will be vanished.

I have used the sliced cold cucumber, and it helps the hint of an eyebag. But the dark circle must be covered with a make up cover consealer.

Gently massage saffron or almond oil on the dark area before going to bed. Dip cotton pads in fig juice, rosewater, or cold milk. Lie down with your feet raised higher than your head, then place the wet pads on your closed eyes. Stay that way for 10 minutes.

Use cucumber juice or slices there. Keep them for at least 15-20 minutes. Go to bed before 10 o'clock and don't be tense all the time and have fun.
