In brief: Cool, elevation, ...
The dark areas come from dilated vessels just beneath the skin.
When your eyes are irritated, these vessels become more visible. Also, the skin is a bit water-logged & thus sometimes more transparent. The puffy part is best helped with elevation (extra pillows for sleep) and cool compresses. Save teabags for drinking. Anti-allergy oral & topical meds help too.
