  • Although I drink plenty of water and sometimes Gatorade, I have severe redness under eyes (upper cheeks). I already have dark circles under eyes though this does not seem related. Redness started about 3 months ago and is unaffected by over the counter creams. I get plenty of sleep, 6-8 hours per night and do not have problems falling asleep.
