Thanks for writing in.
The uneven skin tone and undereye pigmentation is common problem.
The most appropriate treatment for this is chemical peeling with glycolic acid/kojic acid.As you have tried many products without improvement there is no point in going for them again.
However pigmocare cream is a new product with azeloglicina said to be effective in treating it.You can also try Garnier Light Tinted Anti Dark Circles Eye Roll-on gel.

Lack of sleep, irregular sleep wake cycles, anemia ,allergy are underlying causes of undereye dark circles.
Take atleast 6-7 hours of good night sleep .
TAke some multimineral supplements for 4 weeks.
Also take lemon juice or citrus fruits containing vitamin C daily.Or you can take tablet CELIN containing vitamin C once daily.Vitamin C helps in getting rid of pigmentation with inhibition of melanin.
Routine sunscreen use and using scarf/caps will help in preventing further pigmentation and allowing treatment to show early effect.

Some clinic based procedures like Undereye treatment ,microdermabrasion and chemical peeling will help a lot in your case.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.

Hi Again,
Peels are strong chemicals which are not to be used at home.
Few milder peels like Kojic acid can be used at home.
For best possible results you should visit a nearby dermatologist/cosmetologist who can provide you bes t possible treatment.It should be available at big hospital or medical college in AP.
Accugel procedure for undereye and glycolic peels for face will reduce your both problems effectively.
Suncoat gel by curatio is a good sunscreen .Use it daily for 2 times and it will reduce the pigmentation by protecting you from sunlight.Regular and religious use of sunscreen will prevent further pigmentation and allow good effects of the treatments.
Hope this helps.
