Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

Dark circles can be quite difficult to treat.

I would recommend the application of a lightening cream containing glycolic acid or arbutine daily at night for just 15 mins.

Also you can consult your dermatologist for glycolic peels or arginine peels.

Please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

I would recommend vitamin c serum to be applied in the day and melaglow cream to be applied at night only for 15 mins.

Also use a sunscreen daily.

Hope my recommendations are helpful to you.

Take care.

So these medicines will be avail able in any of the medicine shop?? The medicines you have recommended will be applied only in eye area or full face?
I have dry skin problem as well.

These medicines may require a prescription from your dermatologist.

They are available in a chemist shop.

You have to apply them just on the dark circles under the eyes.

You can apply a moisturizer twice a day for the dry skin.

Take care.
