Dark Circles
Anyone know of a remedy for dark circles around the eyes?

Dark undereye circles can have many causes....heredity, thinning of skin due to age, sun exposure, etc., etc., etc., Some remedies include cucumber slices placed on your eyes while lying down with your eyes closed for 10-15 minutes a day. Cool, caffeinated tea bags placed over your eyes while lying down with eyes closed for 10-15 minutes. Put a spoon in the freezer for 10-15 minutes and place over your eye until it gets warm.
Eye creams containing retinol and vitamin K can help.
If you want to camoflauge the darkness with makeup, a corrector is a must. Look at the darkness and determine if its bluish, yellowish, purpleish, greenish etc. The corrector shade depends on the color of the darkness. For example, if the darkness is yellowish, you would need a lavender corrector to counteract the yellow. You would aooly the corrector to the darkness and top it with concealer, then set with a very light dusting of translucent powder (I apply this with a fan brush to insure a light layer).
I hope this helps:)
