Some home remedies for dark under-eye circles include elevating the head while sleeping, using caffeine or anti-inflammatory cream and cold compresses, taking antihistamines and using a collagen under-eye cream. The appropriate remedy for dark under-eye circles depends upon the cause.
If dark circles stem from vascular or blood pressure issues, elevating the head during sleep and using a cold compress after sleeping works well. The use of an eye cream containing caffeine, which constricts the vessels, or an anti-inflammatory cream may also provide relief. For those suffering from allergies, a common cause of under-eye circles, taking an antihistamine may help eliminate the circles. If the skin under the eyes has become thinner, using an eye cream containing collagen strengthens under-eye skin, reducing the appearance of under-eye circles.
