    They're big, fat, purple and ugly af - I need to know how to get rid of them.

    Can't change my sleeping pattern, 00:00 - 06:00

    Are there any ointments or something which can hide them. I'm a guy if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance

    Damn I get the same problem a lot, honestly I think the only cure is taking sleeping pills (I use Sominex) so you sleep long as hell. And also it puts you in a deep sleep as opposed to the half-ass sleep you normally get where you get woken up by the littlest things

    Sometimes it's just genetics. My entire family have dark eyebags.

    I've reduced mine significantly after sorting out my sleep schedule after years of sleeping no sooner than 2am.
    How come you can't sleep sooner than midnight? I started taking these 5htp tablets and they helped me fix my sleep schedule entirely.

    After sleep the main thing is to increase your water intake. Try to drink 2L a day. I notice improvements when I drink a lot of water consistently, though it's usually more like 1L a day.

    I have dark under eyes but they don't get puffy or anything
    I just use pink concealer to balance it out and if I put too much on then I balance out the too much pink with some yellow concealee

    Don't sleep on your face ever
    Make some green tea, and put them in ice cube trays to freeze them then put them in a clean Muslin cloth and hold it against your under eye
    Place cold cucumbers on your eyes for 20 mins
    Drink more water

    COLD STUFF!! Lots of it! I read its called by constriction of blood vessels or something like that idk I am no doctor :P

    Freeze up some tea bags and apply them to your eyes before getting some sleep. Cucumbers help too!

    Try washing your face with cold water and google some tips

    Get home late and lots of work, doing A-Levels

    Thanks for the advice everyone, seems the answer is water and frozen tea bags

    Home Bargains sells "Snake Venom Eye Cream" for under £2, allegedly works in just four weeks. i'm giving it a try and I think i'm beginning to see a result! maybe try it? it's only £2 it'll hardly break the bank

    get a botanical under eye roll on
    that what I use and I'm awake 36 then sleep for 12 and so on
    it cost me about £10 but it lasts me 3 months so it a good price and makes a real difference

    First treatment:
    I am using ice cubes for the eye bags. Apply ice cubes gently on the dark circles. This technique will vanish 50% of the dark circles.
    Second treatment:
    Take coconut water and massage it on your eye bags, leave it for few hours and then rinse with water. Use this technique 2 or 3 times a day. After few months, you will see better results.
