When it comes to our skincare routines, eye cream is something that usually takes a backseat. When you're in your 20s, you don’t quite feel the need to use it just yet. However, this underrated skincare product actually has a bevy of benefits that help with various concerns. Here are some of them:
Brightens dark circles
There are many reasons we have dark circles. Constant all-nighters, genetics, sun exposure, and stress are all contributing factors to this. When picking out an eye cream, choose one that has vitamin C, licorice, or kojic acid to help in brightening the undereye area.
Smoothens out fine lines
Have you noticed that as we grow older, it's our undereye area that shows the first signs of aging? The mix of thin skin and constant action (such as smiling, blinking, and winking) causes drooping and fine lines. Prevent this by dabbing eye cream on the area to reduce the fine lines and smoothen them out.
Whether you pulled an intense all-nighter or you were up watching your fave K-drama until the wee hours of the morning, you're bound to have puffy eyes the next morning. To soothe and minimize their appearance, lightly dab eye cream on the area. Pro tip: Store the eye cream in the fridge for a refreshing sensation.
Below, we have put together a list of the best eye creams on the market to help you fight fine lines, puffy eyes, and dark circles:
