You need to look for the cause of the discoloration under your eyes, for it is merely a symptom which will reappear in another way if you conceal or ignore it. The main problem is something that we all know about: lack of sleep. It is the primary cause for dark discoloration under the eyes. Some people require more sleep than others, and that is also affected by diet. See what works best for you, and don't compromise your sleep.

Following that, stress will wear a person down and place enough stress on the immune system that the body begins to exhibit symptoms such as this. It can be seen alongside the inability to think clearly, and even palpitations. If you are in a job that is too much for you, it is time to look in another direction. If you love it anyway, look online for some resources about meditation. Try yoga if that works for you. Each person is different, and you should harness that.

Get some sunlight. Sunlight, or Vitamin D, is not the killer that the establishment would have you believe. It is not out to get you, but that does not mean that you need to lay out in it all day long in 100 degree heat, either. Too much can be more dangerous than too little. When you go out in the sun, do not wear sunscreen. Sunscreen contains titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and oxybenzone which are all known to be incredibly damaging to the body. Be proud of your body, and believe in it. Get outside for at least 30 minutes each day before 12 or after 3.

Lastly, a huge factor can be troublesome allergies. Allergies are very common in the United States, and they are best treated with a good diet accompanied with an intake of some all-natural plain yogurt. Yogurt will help to restore the natural rythm in your intestinal tract. Allergies are usually only present alongside an overgrowth of candida, which is a type of yeast that lives in the intestines. It is fueled by sugar-based products, refined (white) carbohydrates, and various food additives. Additonally, if allergies are the problem, then using high quality anti-allergen air filters would be prudent.

Some people do not have the problems outlined above. These are other common problems which can cause shadows under the eyes:

- Dehydration. Drink when you are thirsty, and do not put it off; especially when you are out in the sun.

- Rubbing the eyes, in some people who are more sensitive. Stop rubbing, and the problem will go away if this is the cause.

-Another answerThe reason why the area looks darker is generally because of the decreased thickness of the skin. The skin in that area gets thinners and allow to reveal the color of veins and tissues below. In rare cases the reason of the color is a deterioration of the pigment of the skin.

The main factor is to find out the reason for it and possibly the best way is to first of all balance your health and diet as well as your sleep. Try first of all to have a diet with plenty of vegetables and fruit, drink plenty of water, spend at least 20 minutes each day outdoors, when you are indoor try to get as much natural sunlight as possible instead of artificial lights, sleep at least 8 hours a day and no more than 9 hours a day, try to have a 10 or 20 minutes nap in the middle of the day (never longer than 30 minutes), exercise regularly never arriving to exhaustion and always allow a period of 24 hours recovery with no exercising after each exercise session, reduce animal products and have plants home to oxygenate the environment.

After 6 weeks you will notice a better health and improved energy. You may also notice less darkening under the eyes. If the darkening is still there, go to a doctor and ask for a full test in hormones including adrenals (cortisol).

In the meaning time, use nutritive creams for the eyes and avoid any cream with retinol-A or indicated for peeling. A trick for makeup is to use a soft orange tone (can be from a base or lipstick) under the make up base or powder, the orange color neutralizes the blue of the darkened area.
