15 Best Eye Creams That Fight Dark Circles, Puffiness And Fine Lines!
No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they had plenty of sleep. This is largely true of our 20s. But our eyes are a dead giveaway of pulling late nights, hectic lifestyles, stress, and poor eating and sleeping habits. And while I am all for living life fully, I don’t think I would do it at the cost of looking haggard thanks to undereye bags, dark circles, and fine lines. Yikes!
While I agree a lot of cosmetic products are a sham and fail to deliver what they claim to do, under eye creams can surely not be placed under this category. If you thought undereye creams are just another marketing gimmick, I urge you to reconsider. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest layer of skin as compared to the rest of the body. Using a cream that is meant especially for this area is extremely important. And while the earlier notion was to start in your late 20s, I agree with Neha Dhupia who firmly believes in starting early.
Now I know finding the perfect one is easier said than done, and it takes a lot of trial and error to find your Holy Grail product, but this precisely where I come in. I’ve rounded up 15 of the best eye creams that are true to their claims when used long enough and appropriately. Keep in mind that application is as important as the product itself.
Always start at the inner corner of your upper eyelid with dabbing motions. Work the product into your skin in a “press and release” motion with your ring finger since it exerts the lightest pressure. While applying the product on your lower lid, work outwards to inwards. This technique is especially important while using anti-aging products since you are working against the lines. For depuffing, the motion on the upper eyelid remains the same, but on the lower lid move inwards to outwards to promote lymphatic drainage.
