Thanks for writing in.
Dark circles can be due to various reasons, the commonest being stress, sleep deprivation, faulty dietary habits etc.
The following measures will help:

(1) Get 6-8 hours of refreshing sleep daily.
(2) Drink plenty of water.
(3) Avoid excess salt in diet.
(4) Use a broad spectrum sunscreen when stepping out.
(5) Apply thin slices of potato over the eyes for 10 minutes everyday.
(6) You can use CLEARZ cream around the eyes. This needs to be applied around the eyes at night.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
