Wouldn't it be nice to wake up fresh-faced and utterly glowing in the morning instead of frantic and bleary-eyed? Still, given our demanding lifestyles (lack of sleep, late night email scrolling and a penchant for a glass of red or two), it's no wonder most of us are sporting Ikea-sized eye bags.
If you've made it this far by using your regular moisturiser on your under-eyes, it's time to kick the habit. The skin around our eyes is far thinner and more fragile than the rest of our face and the thick emollients added to our face creams aren't blended with this in mind.
In fact, regular moisturiser can build-up and lead to even more puffiness. Not good. Instead, failing a restful night, you're best off with a dedicated eye cream blended with the brightening, smoothing and soothing ingredients our peepers need most (consider them a magic wand for dark circles and blue bags). Apply with the delicacy of your ring finger, and use a gentle patting motion to aid absorption.
Given the amount of time many of us spend in the morning desperately trying to blend away dark under-eye circles with concealer it makes sense to put in the groundwork the night before to make early morning camouflaging a thing of the past.
So, how do you pick the best eye cream to protect those precious lids?! We've got you covered. Here are the best of the best creams to soothe, calm and wave goodbye to eye bags. You are most welcome.
