Puffy eyes and under eye dark circles are a woman’s worst nightmare. Haven’t really held a discussion on this topic with men to know how they feel about these two rather unsightly ‘gifts of nature.’ I am pretty sure men won’t receive dark circles or eye bags under their eyes with much enthusiasm either. While it can be a serious concern among men and women both, there are many solutions to treat the puffy eyes or dark circles. From minor surgeries to lasers to creams, you can choose from an array of options. However, creams remain the safest option. And they do make a difference. A remember seeing a friend use it when she was working as a Spectrum customer support rep. Due to long working hours, she couldn’t get proper sleep at times. But she resorted to creams, applied it before sleeping and woke up without a tired look on her face.
Here are all the creams that I have seen her use over time and ones she swears by:
Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream
Sephora’s first eye cream, this product is suitable for all skin types. This includes:
It is recommended for all those who are looking for an instant lifted and depuffed look. It reduces the appearance of the fine lines and dark circles under your eyes. This is all due to the ingredients that are a part of this amazing cream. The main ingredients that reduce the appearance of eye bags and dark circles include caffeine and Brazilian ginseng root extract. Moreover, you can also find the solution to the appearance of your crow’s feet and fine lines in this cream. Because it also has ingredients like concentrated horse chestnut and acamella oleracea. In case you are wondering, the cream is free from any fragrance and gluten. Apart from that, the product does not contain Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates either. Apply two to three pumps of it in the morning as well as the evening for a noticeable result.
RoC Retinol Correxion Retinol Eye Cream
If you are looking for a cream that is a solution to your wrinkles, your search is over. The product is gentle on the eyes (of course). As the name suggests, the cream contains Retinol that helps you to ward off the wrinkles and other signs of aging around your eyes. This includes crow’s feet. Although, every eye cream that claims to deal with the wrinkles has Retinol as the main ingredient. Many of them leave the skin dry after applied. However, this product addresses this issue and contains a more stabilized form of retinol along with a moisturizing formula. This helps to reduce irritation. This product is in fact made for people who have dry skin and have never tried retinol before.
NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream
This is one of the best creams to help you deal with puffy eyes. Packed with caffeine, this product also contains a blend of growth factors along with antioxidants that make the skin look healthier. According to some of the reviews, the cream leaves the skin hydrated, increasing the firmness around your eyes. It also aids in diminishing the appearance of the dark circles under eyes. The ingredients present in the cream also help to give you a ‘fatigue-free’ look. It is suited for almost all skin types including dry and sensitive skins. And it is free from fragrances or any color additives, making it a safe option.
Chantecaille Rose de Mai Eye Lift
This silky eye gel aids you in treating your eyes like the delicate flowers that they are. Rosewater infused lightweight gel, it treats all the age-related signs around your eyes. These include dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness, and fine lines. What is different about this product is the unique pen applicator that it features. The applicator comes equipped with a cooling ceramic tip whose job is to enhance the freshness when you apply the cream. The main ingredients present in the gel include:
- Algae tensing blend
- Persian Silk Tree Extract
- Pure rosewater
These are the best picks as graded by my friend. You can get hold of them from a cosmetics store or order online. And as highlighted earlier, if your job asks of you to do night shifts like those taking calls at Uverse Customer Service Number, you will definitely be needing one of the above-mentioned creams. This does not imply that other people are exempted from the use of these products. Anyone and everyone who wishes to lessen the effect of aging signs around the eyes should invest in these creams.
