Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain dark circles can occur due to causes like:
-Excessive stress,Malnutrition,Overuse of mobiles and laptops,Sleep deprivation,Allergies etc..
You should first of all look for the causes of the dark circles and can consult a Dermatologist and get evaluated for a proper diagnosis and treatment..
I would suggest you to first of all reduce stress by doing meditation and breathing exercises..
Take sufficient sleep..
Avoid excess use of gadgets..
You can start applying creams containing Kojic acid and Vitamin E..
Grapeseed extract containing creams are helpful..
You can also put pieces of cucumber over the closed eyes as it has soothing effects..
You can also place grated potato over the eyes..
Take multivitamin supplements..
Drink plenty of water and take a nutritious diet..
Limit sun exposure and wear goggles and apply sunscreen lotion always when exposed to sun.
In case of no improvement Dermatologist can also advise lazer treatment for removing the dark circles..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
