Welcome to HealthcareMagic. The problem of dark circles are very common, the causes are like lack of sleep, dehydration, thinning of skin under eye, iron deficiency anemia, some are genetic too. Well, although there are remedies for it but its effectiveness is very individualistic. The most important of them is to hydrate yourself well and have good quality sleep. Next there are like keeping normal tea bags/ cucumber slices. There are also studies suggesting Vit K as topical application. Better consult a dermat/ cosmetologist for more information. Take care.
