Re: undereye circles

Before I would resort to saying no cure, yes allergies do cause dark circles, and not having cleared breathing also the fact your mom has allergies, makes you more prone to having them also. Once my son was diagnosed with allergies and give proper medication, the dark circles disappeared.

Re: undereye circles

I had the same problem for many years...here are a few tips

1. Try to sleep more
2. Use creams that contain antioxidant vitamins like vitamin C...(I really love alpha hydoxy products and use them nightly and i love eye firming cremes) but your younger and may not need all of this..
3. Avoid caffeine (if you can)
4. Drink lots of water
5. Apply cold compress




Here is an article i found useful...
Covering Undereye Circles
The fastest cure for dark circles is to apply concealer. Choose a gold-based color that matches your skin shade exactly (the gold will counteract the blue of the undereye circle).
The most common mistake women make when applying concealer is choosing a color that's too light -- this only achieves a "reverse raccoon" effect. Another common problem: putting the concealer only under the eye. You should apply it all around the eye area, and be sure to blend well. Set the concealer with a light dusting of translucent face powder so that it stays put. And to avoid drawing attention to your undereye area, don't apply eyeliner or mascara to your lower lashes.

Often, the inner corner of the eye is the darkest part. A white shimmer pencil will cover it. Some companies manufacture a blueish or white pencil just for this purpose.



Good luck...

Re: undereye circles

If the above doesn't get rid of your undereye circles, I recommend you use Clinique's Soft Conceal Correcter. 'Cause my undereye circles ARE hereditary, so I just cover them up. =|

After trying a billion other concealers, Clinique's was the only one that REALLY covered them... So I just thought I'd let you in on that.

Actually, though, people have been saying that Olay's Eye Regenerist thickens the skin so the dark circles fade away some. I'll be giving that a try soon...
