  • Get enough sleep.  Sleep deprivation makes under eye dark circles more obvious
  • Apply black tea bag or cold compress;this can reduce blood vessel dilations.
  • Wear large sunglasses.  Protecting the eyes from the sun can decrease pigmentation
  • Do not rub the area around the eyes.  It will only make the condition worse.
