    IS there actually anything proven to help them? I've head they are a really tough area to tackle as oppose to other parts of the skin - I really don't see creams being able to make much of a difference...

    You could try wearing concealer? I know you're guy but it won't be noticeable at all
    If it's hereditary, I don't really know much else

    Try a light reflecting concealer pen. They're really lightweight so you won't be able to see or feel it on but it'll brighten up the area. The famous one is YSL touche éclat but loads of brands do them now at all price points. L'oreal and Bourjois both do them if you're looking for something at the cheaper end of the scale.

    For the puffiness piles cream is supposed to work a treat (sounds weird but does make a real difference)... Dark circles are often genetic, though (like if you have sallow skin like me, if I haven't got enough sleep you can tell from across the room) so other than concealer most remedies wouldn't work.
