How to get rid of dark circles under the eyes is one of the most difficult questions to answer. I’m not talking about the kind you get from staying up late now and then. This is more severe.
Dark under eye circles are caused for different reasons, but often it is an inherited condition and even with a good diet, quality sleep, and good skin care, the condition is still there. I’ve even seen young children with it, which makes it seem more likely that it is an inherited skin condition. It can also be caused by allergies, but whatever the reason, no one wants to carry a set of luggage under their eyes.
Assuming you’re already doing all the things you should regarding sleep and diet, focus on allergens. Try an antihistamine or use a neti pot to clear your sinuses. If your circles have a brown or yellow tint to them, it’s probably due to lack of sleep or an allergy, but only a visit to the doctor will give you a definite answer.
If your dark circles are an inherited condition, you have some work to do. The tiny capillaries in the tissue under the eye break, blood pools, and the result is the dark purple color we see under the eyes.
Remember my review of Almond Eyes, Lotus Feet? Well, that’s where this remedy to get rid of dark circles under the eyes comes from. Grind a few pistachio nuts and add a teaspoon of milk to make a paste. Apply this to the delicate skin around the eyes. After half an hour, wash it off. This is not an overnight remedy so don’t try it twice and abandon it because it doesn’t work. It will take at least two or three months of doing this nightly to see any difference at all.

If you need more help with dark circle under eye, consider using 100% Pure’s Fruit Pigmented Brightening Concealer-Corrector. It brightens dark under eye circles, and at the same time corrects them with green tea, caffeine, and other antioxidant herbs.
As I said, this is a difficult condition. It’s the most common skin complaint after acne. Studies show that allergies, fatigue, stress, smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeinated beverages can make dark eye circles worse so keep those activities to a minimum.
