If you’ve been dealing with dark circles, puffiness, and bags — not the designer kinds — then listen up. Even though no product can make them go away entirely, there are ones out there that can certainly help. Now that patio nights are in full swing and folks are heading into the office come morning, no longer can we hide behind our turned-off cameras on Zoom calls and virtual meetings. We’re starting to have to show our faces and we want them to look as fresh and wide-away as possible. How are you going to achieve that? With the best under-eye products for you.
Eye creams and under-eye patches are definitely great products to purchase and have at the ready but if it’s a long-term and permanent solution you’re after, then you might want to consider a visit to your dermatologist or local medi-spa. These spaces can give you a quick dose of filler in the cheeks and/or in the under-eye area to help with the volume loss and sallow shadows. However, in the meantime, it’s worth it to stock up on a few essentials that’ll work their magic quicker than you’ll even believe.
Alumier MD AluminEye Eye Cream
This eye cream from Alumier MD is so nourishing and hydrating but most importantly, it has an amazing brightening effect that’s instantly noticeable. In addition, it also works to help improve firmness and elasticity with ingredients like tremella mushroom extract, niacinamide and murumuru butter. My favourite thing about this eye cream is that it comes in a pump but you can dispense as much or as little product as you need so there’s none wasted.
Radford Beauty EYE: Visibly Bright Hydrating Repair Cream
In an effort to dispel beauty myths, Toronto pro and founder of Radford Beauty, Victoria Radford has done us all the service of launching EYE. This under-eye product is a multi-purpose cream that treats all signs of aging on all areas of the face including the eyes, face and neck. Your days of buying overpriced tiny jars of eye creams that over promise and underdeliver are over now that this product will sit proudly on your vanity.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Vitamin C Eye Serum
Sure you slather serums on your face but do you have one dedicated just for your under-eye area? If not, then you’ll want to add Dermalogica’s Biolumin-C Eye Serum to your shopping list. Formulated just like the brand’s best-selling Biolumin-C serum that brightens and helps even out the skin, this baby does the same and it even aids in firming and helping nix any fine lines and wrinkles. For extra TLC, apply your fave emollient cream to the under-eye after serum application.
Peace Out Puffy Under-Eye Patches
Puffy sleeves are in for summer but puffy eyes, no thank you! A pair of under-eye patches that de-puff and help minimize dark circles in just 15 minutes? Yes please! The patches from Peace Out are affordable and come in a package of 6 so fresh and awake looking peepers are never out of reach.
Take your routine to the next level by adding micro currents which are clinically tested to improve facial contour and skin tone all while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The NuFace Trinity is a great tool to have in your repertoire and the Eye + Lip attachment means you can pinpoint areas of the face to treat like crow’s feet, eyebrow furrow, and even smile lines.
