See a dermatologist

The most definitive treatment would be peels or laser, but I do not know your ethnic background or skin type, and some procedures aren't as safe for darker skin. Prescription and doctor dispensed products work better than OTC options and can be used on all skin types. Make sure any allergies you have are treated since sinus congestion and eye rubbing worsen dark circles.
