I'm looking for a way to reduce the appearance of my under eye circles. (purple color)

I'm a 22 year old male and I've had them for over 4 years. All my bloods are good and I eat very well. I sleep for around 9 hours a night and do a little exercise.

In the past I've tried generic eye creams but none of them have changed the appearance of the pigment. I also think there is a lack of collagen in my face in general, especially under my eyes. I've also tried cucumber, tea bags, cold and hot compress, net- pot for congestion and a couple of other things in case of allergies, which I don't believe I have.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

You can try the DIY recipe below. I haven't used it personally (don't have dark circles) but it has worked for some others. If it doesn't it cheap so you aren't out much. Good luck and welcome to EDS.

OK. Here is a gift to all you dark circled eyed gals out there. You asked for something to get rid of dark circles - here is a homemade Circle Buster recipe:

Go to your grocery store. Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (Knox, for example)
Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1/4 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add 1 Tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute.

Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off.

I worked in a day spa & this was our "Circle Buster" Treatment. Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

The day spa where I worked charged $60 for this treatment (but they put rose petals on your eyelids), and it wasn't until after I quit, that I found out what was in those little white packets!
There you go.....enjoy!

Thanks for your reply.

It's strange, I eat quite a lot of gelatine for it's benefits but never thought of applying it topically. I'm definitely going to give this a try and will report in around 1 week of how it is.
