i also have same problem and have had this 3 years but only really shows up in spring summer not winter as im pale during those months so you cant really see the difference. but in summer i tan easy but remain pale under my eyes and really do not know the cause of this . it just started one day three years back and iv been searching for answers ever since. hope we can find out what causes this and how we can correct it. good luck
i have since found that taking lots of vitamins is clearing the pale under circles. i guess it must if been vitamin deficancy in the body
These white circles under the eyes may be postinflammatory hypopigmentation secondary to some creams or lotions you have applied on the area.It can also be due to nutritional deficiencies like anemia.Try taking some iron supplements for some days and apply a good sun screen before going out in the sun atleast half an hour before going out in the sun.
If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
This is is not from the lotions, and not from tanning. Not from drinking and not from a tanning bed. I have my endocrinologist looking into it. She is a bulldog about this sort of thing and she WILL figure it out. It may have to do with anemia. I promise to post whatever I FIND OUT. I should know more about this in a few months. Hang in there! I'm 45 and have had these pale circles for as long as I can remember. My mom and sister have it too.
Is anyone yet found out a sure fire way to rid theses stupid white citles under your eyes? Am sick of looking at them!!!!
I hope to find out the cause of these white circles as well, I read that sugar can cause it? The anemia cause sounds plausable as well.
Heres hoping we find out as they are very embarasing and wont stay away from home with friend etc as I don't let any one see me without makeup. My face is very red as well and if I'm tired I'm ghostly white and red(Yuk) I could go on and on. Its good to read of others with this problem and not feel alone anymore!..

to everyone on here i have finally found the cure, it is sinus related and just by taking something as simple as sudafed tablets clears the racoon eyes,
its tried and tested by me and another member on this site, and i can confirm its related to sinus problems , hope this helps everyone,
its only took me 6 years to find the cure , haha , never mind got there in the end
Hey! Thanks for posting your findings. I just noticed white circles around both eyes right when I had pink eye and stopped taking an antidepressant. Now, that I have a tan, it's a lot worse looking. Do you take sudafed every day? I do tend to have sinus issues as well. I take Alavert every day but for allergies. Any more info would be so helpful and appreciated!! I'm so self-conscious about it!
Can anyone shed anymore light on how to get rid of white circles round my eyes I'm getting really down about these now :( tried sudafed n vitamins n still nothing :(
Hi. I am just looking into the white circles under my eyes for the first time. I saw two interesting possibilities that may relate to me. Being older than 50, I have started to try several "remedies" for puffiness under my eyes. Nothing I tried made any improvement, but last summer is when I noticed the white under my eyes, and this year, as well. I'm Italian, so I'm not very white in the winter, and get very dark in the summer. I'm outside a lot and use 50spf, but still get very dark. In fact, I find the higher spf gives me a deeper, longer-lasting tan. Anyway, the darker I get, the whiter under my eyes appear and it's really annoying and I also feel very self-conscious. It looks terrible. Another problem with being over 50 is a drop in my iron. I have intermittently taken iron tablets here and there. I'm going to be more consistent with iron supplements and see if that helps. I will let you know.
I am 47 yrs young. I look like i am wearing sunglasses all the time, but they are white circles or lines around my eyes. I hate even leaving my house anymore. Ppl stare at me like i am sort of a freak. I have tried EVERYTHING but nothing helps....Any answers for me plz?
I have these circles aswell but they look blue in daylight and from a light in the house they look white/shiny. I eat healthy with foods that have lots of vitamins and I use multi vitamins with iron, also eat a fair bit of foods with iron in. I haven't tried sudafed but I don't think I have sinus problems? Can anyone help me?
I have had the same for many years. A month ago I started taking 60mg of zinc per day and it has made a huge difference. Finally I don’t need to wear makeup to hide the white skin.
