i was sick last week and ever since have had bags and dark circles under eyes. Was on eye drops for 5 days but they stopped 2 days ago and they only made matters worse. They itch which is why I thought infection but now I suspect allergy (tons run in family). Antihistamine takes care of itching a bit but black circles and puffiness no. ffs I look terrible. I need help. Am drinking tons of water, sleeping, exercising, probably not eating right but taking vits.

help please.

Sleep sitting up. It gets rid of puffiness.

Not sure how to get rid of dark circles but you could certainly disguise them with make-up.

Bags/dark circles - gelatine round your eyes (I swear)

Dark circles - Estee Lauder re-nutriv concealer duo!

I like that tinted moisturizer kerry. But you are right, you need to try first. I bought it at the chemist's, in Italy though.

I looked hideous at 18 shock

Kerrymumbles Tue 10-Nov-09 22:46:04

ah thanks franca. but i'm on other side of country. I will try chemist in town and see. sigh. i mean he will see me without makeup so I guess I better think of something quick...

Dark circles seem to last forever with this flu. My dc had them for at least another 5 days after the temp had gone.

Kerrymumbles Tue 10-Nov-09 22:46:54

do you actually know how old i am hoochie?

really franca? so it could be related to the illness? gp thinks i had swine flu... [hopeful]

Kerrymumbles Tue 10-Nov-09 22:48:27

yeah my kids gets them as well hoochie but wouldn't antihistamine fix then? I've no idea what i'm reacting to if it's allergy though.

so i think it's either related to illness or allergy. urgh.

What's the other thing everyone swears on? The Elizabeth Arden 8 hr cream or something similar...
