thanks for asking
you are suffering from both periorbital and perioral hyperpigmentation.
Periorbital hyperpigmentation is a skin condition where the external skin layers around the eyelids begin producing an excess of the skin pigment – Melanin.
don’t worry. You’re not alone. Fortunately, there are ways to cure periorbital hyperpigmentation and whiten the area under your eyelids.
arginine peel done by dermatologist is effective way to treat it.
