How can I treat dark circles under the eyes myself?

Makeup can help conceal under-eye circles. Using a cream concealer or liquid foundation that matches your skin color can cover dark circles. There are also some concealers that contain caffeine and can help your eyes look more awake. You can set the concealer with a matte finishing powder. There are also skin lightening creams that have hydroquinone or kojic acid that can hide circles. Another option (which is more expensive) is intense pulse light, which destroys pigment cells and smoothes the skin. By not smoking and applying sunscreen, moisturizers, or prescription retinoic acid, your eyes will look full of life!
