Thank you for posting your query.

The possibilities are

1. Riels melanosis or cosmetic melanosisrom.
2. Melasma.
3. Peri orbital darkening.

The solution
1. Use sun screens in the day time.
2. Use bleaching agent like 2% hydroquinone cream at night.
3. If there is no improvement in two months go for chemical peeling from a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.

Wishing you good health.
