Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First, you need to understand that dark circles around the eyes are sometimes resistant to any treatment and runs in families.

Ensure you get a full night's sleep.

Do not take stress.

Take capsule Perfectil plus (multivitamins and minerals) for three months.

Apply Vitamin C cream around the eyes.

Thank you doctor,

Is it genetic? Tell me the brand name of the cream.
