If you’re a twentysomething hustler (or any living, breathing human, really), chances are you’re dependent on coffee. You likely need to have at least one cup a day to wake you up in the morning, and probably more when you need an energy boost throughout the day.
ICYDK, caffeine is a popular ingredient in eye care products as they help *wake up* tired eyes. It’s an anti-inflammatory ingredient that helps depuff eyes, reduce wrinkles, and brighten skin. And when combined with other skin-loving ingredients, the benefits could be even better!
Here’s a list of caffeine-infused eye creams worth trying:
