Hydration and rest: This appearance is more common with dehydration and fatigue. The easiest treatment is to stay well hydrated (drink plenty of water and non-caffeinated beverages) and to get more sleep.

Sunken Eyes: Sunken eyes often due to fat atrophy/loss around eye (due to genetics often); see an oculoplastics eyemd to discuss options.
