Question
it looks like I have smudged purple eye shadow by the eye,and nose in the corner.is that from allergys or sinus problems,both of which I have? this just started.i am 50 year old female...

Answer
Dear Nikki,

yes, this could be due to some skin damage, either age related or due to allergies and sinusitis.

Unfortunately, this is a cosmetic issue, and some skin creams or skin lightening treatments help, but most often cannot completely eliminate it if really severe.

Take an opinion from a skin cosmetology centre locally, and see what they recommend.
