Circles: For the dark circles, get a good night's sleep. For puffy eyes, try allergy medicines such as Claritin (loratadine) if the puffiness doesn't clear on its own. Call your pcp if symptoms persist or worsen.

Dark Circles: Circles under eye can be due to: allergy "allergic shiners", fatigue, genetic variation, aging. Lower lid skin is very thin so blood vessels under skin can make area look dark. Topical creams/fillers can help hide circles: only mask condition with no cure. What helps: drink 8 cups water/day, sunblock, hat, enough rest; avoid rubbing; makeup; facial plastic surgery when severe; allergist can help
