The dark circles can signify various things. Are the circles blue (thin clear skin) or dark pigmented? Both are inherited unfortunitely.
With the dark pigment, vitamin K in creams can help as well as what Sherry suggested (whitening ingredients to lighten pigments)
Concealers with mauve in them will help counter brown pigments.
Concealers with yellow in them will help counter blue pigments.
Caffeine in creams can help depuff eyes as well as a cold cloth.
Sometimes eyes that are dry or congested...warm cloth can help..then a cold cloth.
If your eyes are baggy, it could be an accumulation of fat and fluid. The lymphatic system can be congested or you might have an allergy or sensitivity that can exacerbate that area of the skin.
Too much salt intake, too much moisturiser, too much alcohol or too much or not enough sleep can also cause the puffy eye syndrome.
oh, forgot to add too much time on the computer can cause eyes to become dry or puffy.
