Dark Circles Under The Eyes Solution

I took it upon myself to look for answers as to why do dark eye circles appear and how can they be treated. The more I asked the more confused I became. Almost every person that a talked to gave me different answers: some told me that dark circles are hereditary, others claimed that the only solution was Laser surgery, there were the ones that believed that dark circles are caused by allergies, a few disregarded the problem and simply blamed it on lack of sleep, and I could go on and on.

When I started searching for a solution to this problem I thought that it was going to be easy to find something that really worked. I tried several products just to end up empty handed. As you probably know there are some products out there to camouflage dark circles, others are topical lotions to place under your eyes. All of which offer very little improvement.

The question is... why?

Why do these products that you apply to your skin offer very little help?

The answer I found was simple yet very illusive. The problem lays somewhere else in your body and the solutions are simple and inexpensive if you have the right information.

In addition to this we must face the fact that some of the products out on the market are shameless fakes and scams. Products designed to take your money living you empty handed and feeling cheated.

Now I don't think of myself as difficult to satisfy but paying $90.00 for a cream that produces "zero" result it's simply a waste of your hard earned money.

This proved to me that products offered to cure dark circles only treated the surface of the skin and not the real problem.

That is when I decided to go straight to the professionals.

When I asked Dermatologists and Cosmetic doctors about how to remove dark circles, one of the answers I got the most was that dark circles can only be removed by laser surgery. When I researched this version deeper I found a sickening truth.

The fact is that Laser surgery is in vogue and cosmetic doctors are making huge profits performing these procedures to remove dark circles. A simple case of dark circles can cost you a few thousand dollars.

No wonder most of these professionals recommend this treatment, how could they recommend anything else when they know that these procedures bring money by the truck load.

This really made me furious, I consider this unethical and misleading and so should you.


TIP#1: Dark circles may be hereditary for some people or simply a part of the aging process, but most people would agree that they are a struggle to conceal. When the fat pad beneath the eye begins to thin with age, it can create a sunken look to the under eye area. Studies have shown that sluggishness of blood flow underneath the eyes may also contribute to dark circles. Vitamin K has been found to diminish the appearance of these dark circles. A recent study published in Cosmetic and Toiletries, included two groups, one that applied an under eye cream containing sunscreen and another that applied an under eye cream containing a combination of vitamin K and retinol. An examination of the under eye color at the beginning of the study and at the end found a significant lightening in the group using the vitamin K and retinol combination.


The other problem with surgeries is that sometime they produce undesirable results, such as, burning of the skin; scarring and discoloration are some of the complications caused by eye lid surgery.

So now I know that traditional medicine did not offer much, to the contrary, the practice made me angry and suspicious with treatments that are expensive and not entirely necessary.

I was disappointed but this set back made me try even harder. I knew that there was an easier solution but as usual the industry does not want you to find out so they can keep filling their pockets with your money.

Finally, after searching high and low and investing an incredible amount of time and effort I started to make progress and discoveries.

You see the main problem is that dark circles are a sign of an underlying body dysfunction, once I found out which those were I knew I was close to solving the problem.


TIP#2: Niacinamide, a derivative of the vitamin Niacin, has been shown to be an effective skin lightening agent, especially for skin conditions where hyperpigmention may occur on the face or other visible parts of the body. Patients with hyperpigmentation applied a moisturizer containing five percent niacinamide. After four weeks, the hyperpigmentation and skin color were analyzed by computer and most patients experienced decreased hyperpigmentation and increased skin lightness. Topical niacinamide has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a potential treatment for puffy eyes and dark circles.
