Let me brief you.
The areas that you mentioned are common areas for pigmentation.
There are various factors thought to be the cause of this discoloration.
Though it is cosmetically disfiguring it has no serious health implications.
Some of the factors that are known to cause the discoloration are
1. excessive dryness
2. Thinness of the skin in this region.
3. Increased sun exposure
4. Certain body hormones.
Since you have no other associated complaints, I would not like to perform tests to look for causes.
i used to have dry skin but its not that dry now.my skin is thin thats right...i exposed to in my 20's that is also right
You certainly have some of those factors.

most of them
Besides these there are other factors, subtle they may be that can be contributing.
Even genetic framework has a role here.
We can correct a few factors here

2. Managing stressors effectively.
3. Consuming plenty of fruits and vegetables.

You can use the gel ones around the eyes.
creams at night.
If they darkening are resistent to those medications then there are medicated preparations as when as chemical peels
useful to treat those pigmentation.
As far as moisturizers is concerned
