Brown Patches above my eyes

Hi,  I have yellow-brownish patches above both eyes in the eyelid crease toward my nose.  Is this an indication of a problem or some dietary deficiency, or simply an aging thing?  I am a 49 year old woman, peri-menopausal.

Thank you,

Could be several different skin lesion including xanthelasma oe seborrheic keratosis.  Google images for eyelid xanthelasma - that would be tops on my list.  See ophthalmologist to have lesions evaluated as soon as possible.
