Q: How can I diminish the dark circles under my eyes? I've tried just about everything and I still look like I've got one foot in the grave.
A: Dark under-eye circles are a familiar problem for a lot of women. The purplish color along with puffiness is the result of tiny blood vessels that have poor circulation due to stress, lack of sleep or, unfortunately, heredity. Tackle the problem with an under-eye cream made with plant or marine extracts that decongest and moisturize the delicate under-eye skin. Apply morning and night with a light tapping motion to stimulate circulation and prevent puffiness. Try: Estée Lauder Uncircle, Clarins Eye Contour Gel, Reméde Eye Repair Balm. For more help, reach for the cover-up. Use a cream formulation that won't settle into fine lines. Try a cover-up with a yellow undertone to counteract the purple color. Try: Estée Lauder Uncircle Concealer or Physicians Formula Perfecting Concealer in Lemon.
