Were these pictures taken before or after your Feb 8th rhinoplasty? Because that certainly would contribute to the dark circles... remember the black eyes you had after surgery (or at least, most of us get them).

Increasing your sleep is always recommended. If you don't mind me asking, what ethnicity are you? Certain ethnicities (mostly Eastern European) are more susceptible to getting them.

And to answer your question - no I have seen far, far worse than that, so cheer up

Excellent questioning, la_angel, as your query is relevant!

I too, have seen much worse.

Your complexion and/or ancestry might contribute to your dark circles.

Do other people in your family have dark dircles as well?

It sounds like yours are likely just genetic. Unfortunately there is not a whole lot that can be done, unless you are open to wearing a little discreet makeup?

I recently got a sample of that. I don't really have any use for it but I plan on testing it out

I use it for undereye circles (if I run out of Boing from Benefit) or if I get an occasional blemish. Amazing product.
