Under eye cream

Can anyone suggest a cream to rid me of under-eye, sleep deprivation lines?

I'm 21 years old and I use a lot of products to take care of my face. For the last three years I have these lines about 2 inches under each eye. People tell me it's from sleep deprivation, but I got like 8-10 hours everyday! Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Hemorrhoid creams are, supposedly, widely used for this purpose by actors.

Are you adequately hydrated?

I reccomend Benefit's Ohh La Lift. One of the few cosmetics I own that I used up and replaced.

This stuff is bloody good.

I also use the Ooh La Lift. The hemorrhoid cream will help if you are puffy, not for discoloration. Age and genetics will also give you dark circles. You can use a bleaching agent, or you can just use a yellow based tint or concealer. I use Benefit's Lemon-Aid when the Ohh La Lift doesn't cut it.

You can try any of these products as Sephora too.

Do you have dark circles as well? The Doc tells me that stuff is caused by allergies...

No dark circles around the eyes, just the two indented lines 2 inches under the eye.

I've been told allergies can do it, also. I like Bobbi Brown's concealer.

I think any product containing Retinol is exclusively for this purpose.

I've tried this myself (to no avail), and the internets says that it's a myth. But perhaps you want to try it anyway...

Along the lines of elquien's suggestion, drug-store brand witch hazel might work. I might even go so far as to say it does work, but after scanning that straightdope link, I'm suddenly wondering if I've been the beneficiary of a placebo effect.
