I am your age and the same exact way ..no matter how much sleep I get, it's the same way. So I sertatd using Neutrogena dark circle cream. It helps more than anything else I've tried .it's about ten bucks, but it's worth it. At least I know I am trying! Also, definitely use concealer under your eyes ..I use Almay. By the time I do that, my dark circles are hardly noticeable. Also, don't worry about it too much, dark circles are not nearly as noticeable as you think they are to other people.
