Dark circles and bags under my eyes!

Posted by @vickiekay, Oct 4, 2016

I am wondering if anyone has a ‘fix’ for dark circles and bags under the eyes…..I am on a lot of medication for rheumatoid arthritis and pain and those may be contributing factors. Has anyone had successful cosmetic surgery for this?

I think if there were a fix, it is a well kept secret 🙂 Joking aside. Here is a post that @claire87john made quite some time ago with some tips http://mayocl.in/2dcniy3 Also here’s some information from Mayo Clinic about dark circles http://mayocl.in/1BH54c5. I’m afraid that the cause of mine is hereditary. I wouldn’t be willing to do cosmetic surgery. Would you?

LOL! My willingness depends on the day, Colleen!!! I think that my dark circles are genetic….and having RA and taking a ton of medications does not help at all either! My doctors have all been baffled as well and we do wonder if I am allergic to something…but what?!! I just want to look 20 again…when you figure that out, please advise! You will also be a millionaire!!! Thanks for the links — some of those creams look interesting! Vickie

Not a permanent fix by any means, however works wonders and cheap. Preparation H Ointment. Sounds odd, I know, but it WORKS. Apply it under your eyes for a few hours, depending on the inflammation and dark circles.

I may give that remedy a try! Thanks for sharing!! I will be super happy if it works!

Good luck.

I’ve heard that before about Preparation H ointment and if I remember correctly it has to be the ointment, not lotion, correct?

I was told by my doctor that it may come from rubbing my eye area. She said there are very small blood vessel endings in that area and that they can leak and cause the dark circles. I know i am always rubbing my eyes and have tried to stop.
