Dark circles - any remedies?

Hey all :-)
Does anyone have home remedies or used a cream that works really will to eliminate or decrease them? Make up is even difficult to use to try and cover them up. Please help :-)

Preparation H, the hemmorhoid cream, is supposed to work for undereye bags. Not sure about dark circles. Saw it on Dr. Oz.

Have you talked to a doc or dermatologist?

Witch hazel is supposed to be helpful too, just dab a little on your eyelids with a cotton ball.

Yes I'm the same. They are under the eye. It looks like I rubbed my eyes after wearing mascara. They are horrible and I'm to young to have them. Haha.

From what I understand, blood pools under the eyes for a variety of reasons and makes the circles. Probably the best thing to do is ask a dermatologist or other doc about what to do.

Good luck!

Yes, all over the area. BTW, witch hazel is the same ingredient used in Preparation H, only much cheaper.

Really? How much lower?

I've tried several different types, from rub on creams to roll on lotions. In fact, I just sent back two jars of Hydrolyze® Advanced Under-Eye Formula because it actually made the dark circles worse. With me, it's hereditary and the only thing that could possibly fix it is plastic surgery, and I am not THAT vain!

I get them from my mom but I had them in high school and still think I'm to young for them. Haha. I'm not willing to get plastic surgery either. If I had the money to do that I would much rather donate to somewhere. I Will try thewitch hazel. Thank you for all your help. :-)
