What causes dark circles to appear?
Another cause of dark circles is the natural aging process. As you age, there is a loss of fat and collagen that causes your skin to thin.

What I prefer is to use the gel extracted from the plant itself because it is fresh.

You will find instant relief for the tired eyes. Aloevera is soothing. Dab just a bit around the eyes and let it dry before you sleep. and if you really lazy you can also try the products I have mentioned above.
