Dark circles are down to thin skin under the eyes where blood passing underneath can show through, it's often just genetic but other factors come into it such as lack of sleep, illness and bad diet.
The usual rules apply with all health and beauty, get plenty of sleep (8+ hours) and good diet – it may be down to food allergies (dairy and caffeine being the most common - consider allergy tests both for food and common allergies such as pollen and dust), lack of iron can seriously contribute to the problem, excessive toxin build-up can be a factor too (drinking lots of water will help).
There isn't that much you can do with dark circles, you can reduce puffiness which in turn helps with dark circles. Have you ever heard of models using hemorrhoid cream to ease off puffy eyes? Well they do, it works because the active ingredient is witch hazel, this deals with puffiness the same way it'd ease swelling in hemorrhoids or spots - so get some Preparation H or just a simple witch hazel gel. Another tip is using cooled chamomile tea bags applied to eyes for 15 minutes, or keep teaspoons in the freezer to pop under your eyes in the morning.
Use a light concealer, but not too light, try using a concealer with a yellow tint to hide dark circles but be sure to dab rather than rub as if you're harsh under your eyes it can make things worse, try using a sponge or your middle finger which will apply less pressure than your forefinger. I find mascara makes things worse as half way through the day it ends up under my eyes, so I avoid that problem by dying my lashes, then curl with eyelash curlers before applying a little oil (coconut oil is best as it soothes tired eyes too) to wipe off powder from my lashes, hold in place and emphasise.

1. try get atleast 10 hours sleep every night
2. dont touch or pull at your eyes
3. put green tea bags on your eyes for half an hour each night
4. doing excercise increases the blood circulation in your body and reduces the appearance of dark circles under your eyes
5. drink lots of water, they could be caused by water retention
6. reduce sodium in your diet...again causes water retention
7. Also unknown allergies can cause major dark circles
8. moisturise twice a day....dry skin really dosnt help the appearence of dark circles
9. ask your dermatologist if she can see whats the reason and a cream thatll reduce the reason your getting them
10. also if you get a cream that reduces swelling, itll work brill on puffyness
These safe natural treatments really work and give quick results.
This is a response I received from wannabeblue28:
"Hi Mukunda M. I have just been rubbing my face with oil using my fingers and hands and It has made a HUGE difference in my complexion after just one night. ...... My skin looks so much tighter everywhere and i no longer have bags under my eyes! Thank you so much for your post, I have been suffering with acne and under-eye circles since i was young."
She had seen an answer I gave about how vigorous face massaging with essential oils had permanently got rid of my acne and also removed my bags/circles. The massages greatly tighten skin under and around the eye area and the bags go away.
The most helpful ones are: Using both hands together (1) Do long up and down sweeps close to nose from chin area up to near eyes. (2) Do another up and back at an angle from chin point to cheek bone. (3) Do fast up and down massage close to eye from cheek bones at an angle of 45 degrees (on your crows feet). If do all 3 for several minutes daily - will markedly tighten skin and diminish the circles in the first two days. Use any oil. Olive is good. To avoid skin pulling first make skin taught by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth(tightens most of face)
Additionally facial yoga exercises help a great deal. Find on Youtube. Do the "The lion face" and try to hold for 30 seconds. A variation of that is protruding the tongue as if trying to touch tip of nose with tip of tongue.
YOGA MEDITATION is a great help.and is easy to do. Contact me for more info. It enables you to completely relax and gives you deep, restful sleep. 6 hours of restful sleep is considerably more beneficial than 8 or more hours of non restful sleep.

Warm up moist teabags and place them over your eyes for 15 minutes after you wake up. Just lay flat, and make sure it's not seeping into your eyes. That would mean it's to moist. You can also freeze spoons over night, and in the morning place them over your eyes again for 15 minutes. I like this way if you're in a rush because tea bags tend to make your eyes puffy, and/or red. Hope this helps these things are pretty affordable, and really I am sure you have plenty of spoons at home so practically free. Tea bags are very common too! :]

here are a few dead-cheap ways to get rid of circles and bags under the eyes
1. apply carmex lip ointment to affected area at night before going to bed. You can't open your eyes after you put it on so make sure you do everything, like brushing your teeth and going to the loo, first.
2. thinly-cut potato slices are meant to work a charm, but I've never tried that.
3. tea bags work really well - green tea or chamomile are the best.

Honestly, for an immediate fix for bags under my eyes I use Preparation H under them. Seriously it works! If you are wanting something for gradual ongoing results I like Bellaflex. You can find it on Ebay for around $25. I have tried all the cheaper drugstore stuff and the only one of them that somewhat worked was the Olay RX in the little red bottle, but it's about the same price and the Bellaflex works for your whole face. For wrinkles and stuff like that I mean. I have tried EVERYTHING and the Bellaflex DEFIINATELY comes out on top. Good Luck! AND if you find something else that works, let me know haha!

The cheapest way would be ice. Ice cube in a tea towel. and hold it on your bags, or try running a tea spoon under a tan and freezing it, then take it out and run it on the area. (good trick for when you are going out late you chuck it in before your go out!)
