    I've tried every natural remedy. I'm a black girl with very very dark circles. It's black dark circles. And I literally look like a panda. I'm super insecure about it because I can't wear any other makeup without it looking incomplete. What shall I do? America do a lot of surgeries on it and they completely go but not the uk. What shall I do?

    Is it dark circles (as in the colouring of the skin) or hollowness? You can remove dark circles with cosmetic treatment, unfortunately "natural remedies" will not help. If you are suffering from genetic hollowness in the tear trough then filler can help. There is a newer Co2 treatment called carboxytherapy that treats the other type dark circles. Laser treatment can also help. All are non-surgical and can be found widely in the UK. I suggest you go and speak to an experienced cosmetic doctor.

    Below is an example of dermal filler placed in the tear trough. Second image is carboxy therapy, can get similar results with laser too. Both images relate to different issues, the first is structural and second is to do with pigmentation.

    I don't have a solution but yeah I have a genetically dark circles under my eyes too. It's much darker under my right eye than my left which makes it quite noticeable but more sleep/water intake doesn't help at all. I just stick with using concealer if I want to hide it.

    Tell me if anything helps

    Your issue might be hyperpigmentation. You can visit a dermatologist privately and they can give you products to even out your skin tone.

    Really? For people with darker skin colour? I searched up dermatologists and they were just showing results on people with blue purplish veininish dark circles.

    You might need to go to America then to have it fixed, if it really bothers you.

    You shouldn't settle. If it bothers you then fix it.

    I really don't feel the need to travel that far just to get rid of dark circles. I can see where you're coming from though! Thanks
