Buy Vitamin K Cream for Dark Circles

Dark circles emerge under your eyes when your infra orbital fat pad, the fatty part above your cheekbone, thins out. It creates a sunken appearance. The light reflects off the area so it looks dark. The best way to hide dark circles is to use a concealer that's yellow-based. The yellow color will counteract the blue circles. Vitamin K is a proven way to eliminate, instead of cover, those circles.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to a pharmacy or online that sells eye creams and moisturizers.

  2. 2

    Check the labels. You want something that contains Vitamin K, kojic acid and licorice extract. Both are natural lighteners. Vitamin K heals damage and constricts the capillaries that are showing through the thin under you eye.

  3. 3

    Look for a professional strength product. Dermal K Clarifying cream, for example, used to only be available through a dermatologist (see resources below).

  4. 4

    Consider Vita-K Solution gel, Puritan's Pride Vitamin K cream or Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue.

  5. 5

    Compare prices and ingredients. Most Vitamin K products come in two ounce jars or tubes (see resources below).

  6. 6

    Mix Vitamin K with a Vitamin A product. Apply a Vitamin A derivative such as retinol every other night. Scientists have found that combining the two is more effective at lightening dark circles.

  7. 7

    Ask your dermatologist for recommendations. She may be able to write you a prescription for a stronger Vitamin K cream.
