I'm female 22 yrs and I also have really dark circles under my eyes. I tried all of the creams and gels at pharmacies and none of them worked. I was diagnosed with vitamin b12 deficiency which causes dark under eye circles. It took me years to get a diagnosis because physicians don't generally test b12 levels especially if your cbc counts are normal. I had lots of routine blood work done and they all came back normal. A few months ago I was experiencing severe tingling (I had other symptoms too, but the tingling was most bothersome) so I told my new doctor to test me for absolutely everything that can cause it. My b12 level came back at 30 which is extremely low.The funny thing about it was that I took b12 vitamins all the time... so my body just wasn't absorbing them. You should also consider getting tested for celiac disease - if you have symptoms associated with it - because it deprives your body of important vitamins. I'm sure there are products or something out there that helps dark circles, but it won't help if you have an underlying condition.

Hello ,
Dark circles around eyes can be due to anaemia and lack of sleep.
Get your haemoglobin test done.
You can apply cucumber and potato slices for few minutes daily.
Take multivitamins.
Avoid stress

Best wishes

Yes you are right , underlying condition is to be treated first.

Cyanocobalamin or methylcobalamine is a very imoprtant factor and its deficiency causes dark circles under eyes.
