Thanks for the query.
Dark circles can be genetic (runs in family) or acquired later in life.
The genetic one is very difficult to treat.
The acquired one can be due to following reasons.
1. Iron deficiency.
2. Stress
3. Excessive strain on eyes or lack of sleep.

Here is my advice for you.
1. Apply ega cream daily twice under the eyes, just massage a bit.
You will get good result in a month.
2. Take iron capsule daily for 3 month
3. Take adequate rest and drink lots of water.
Watermelon has lot of Vitamin E and hence it will be beneficial for you.

Feel free to ask any further query.
Wishing you good health.
Thank you
