I've had this problem since I was a kid. I really do not think it is lack of sleep cause I've had it as a kid and now into my adulthood. What is it and how can I get rid of it? Is there a name for it? I've tried using that Hylexin cream and it made it lighter, but I am wondering if there is some type of surgery or something else more permanent to get rid of it.
I am a 30 year old male in perfect health, most people think I party all the time and or think I am on drugs cause it makes me look older than I am, I was even told once that If I didnt have the bags under my eyes I could pass for a young 20 year old.
Is this a genetic situation or are you the only one in your family with this? A lot of times the dark circles around eyes are form allergies, it causes discoloration. Have you been to an allergy specialist?
If you're from the Mediterrenian countries you may have this as a result of the region. A lot of people in that area do as I'm from over there myself and have dark circles under the eyes. Fortunately I'm a female and I can use a highlighter (make up) to cover up. You may be able to do the same ... very light and very little but it goes a long way.
Dark discoloration under the eyes is often from blood vessels that are close to the skin and cause the dark circles. Allergies, lack of sleep, and dehydration are some factors that will exacerbate the dark circles.There are cosmetic products that can help. I am not aware of any cosmetic procedure that will eliminate them. I have used a product by DHC, a Japanese cosmetic company, that is effective in fading the dark circles. The product is called Eye Bright. It is much less expensive than Hylexin and it worked better than Hylexin for me. You may want to try it.
I, too, have had dark circles under my eyes since I was a child. I have used tons of products to try and hide them or fade them. Eye Bright has been the best. Over time the circles will be greatly reduced and faded. You can see a difference in just a day or two of use but the effects are greatest with continued use. I spoke with a cosmetologist at the company and she told me the product has caffeine in it and that is the active ingredient. It makes sense as caffeine will vasoconstrict blood vessels, shrinking them thus they are less visible. You may be able to request samples from the company.
