Our expert says:
It is caused by the congestion of veins that shine through the thin skin under one's eyes. The causes are often allergy, stuffiness of the nose or sinuses, tiredness or hereditary causes. Management would include treating any allergies and or sinus problems and sleeping enough. The results of one clinical trial showed that a cream containing vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E and retinol was moderately effective in treating under-eye circles - this you would find at beauty counters at e.g. Edgars. I think Garnier makes some products for dark circles.
