Dark Circles, Be Gone
Here's my pressing question: Short of cosmetic surgery, is there anything I can do to reduce the circles under my eyes? I wear concealer, but I'd like to diminish the circles, not just cover them up. And, yes, I use eye cream, drink plenty of water, get a fair amount of sleep, exercise, and generally eat pretty well. Still, I look tired far too often. Thanks for any ideas.

Yes, It's Really Me...Only Older
I'm not searching for that perfect moisturizer/
blush/eye cream and I don't 'struggle' with my changing looks, per se. But I do have to cope with my appearance as it ages and how others respond to it.

In particular, I've found that many people who haven't seen me in a long time don't always recognize me. It's uncomfortable. My hair has thinned and grayed because I don't believe in coloring it—so I look older. I do the best I can with what I have, but what other advice do you have for someone like me?
