Hi there, im 16 years old and for some reason I've got huge black eye sockets... Weird thing is that I get plenty of sleep (~10 hours a day), in fact, the black eye sockets only seem to become worse if I've slept longer than usual... Does anybody know how to prevent it..? :\

Ughhh! I know how annoying those dark circles can be! Its not just lack of sleep that can cause them though. Are you drinking enough water? Water helps to clean out your system and not drinking enough can make dark circles worse. Unfortunately, you can inherit them too, in which case there is not a lot you can do about them, apart from cover them up with concealer, which works pretty well for me. I don't know why they appear to be worse after you've slept for longer than usual, but if you are in good health there is nothing to worry about. Hope that helped.

cucumber slices over the eyes are supposed to clear up dark circles.

Vitamin K works wonders, it took my dark circles away beautifully.
