Dark Circles Under Eyes Remedies

  • For kids, allergies are a common cause. A visit to an allergist and making a plan to avoid identified allergens may be a big help to rid these dark circles. Once a day nondrowsy antihistamines are another option.
  • For a short term solution, a cold compress to the eyes for 10 to 15 minutes can narrow the blood vessels making the dark circles less noticeable.
  • Concealer cosmetics can blend the affected areas in with your surrounding normal skin color. Dermablend and Clinique Continuous Cover are examples available without a prescription.
