Usually the problem with dark circles under the eyes is hereditary. Here are a couple of easy advices on how to prevent them.
Use gels and lotions especially designed for the delicate eye area, but don’t expect them to work miracles.
In the morning rub the circles with a cube of cosmetic ice wrapped in a piece of gauze. Afterwards, lightly pat them with your ring finger working outwards from the inner corner of the eye.
