Puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and irritated skin—these are all common issues we face when it comes to the sensitive, tender skin around our eye area. With so many eye creams on the market, which one is best for your specific skin concern? Here's a simple guide to help you!
1. For dark circles & dullness
Whether the cause is genetics, allergies or lack of sleep, dark circles are a pain to deal with. Other than taking antihistamines (if the cause is allergy-related), and propping an extra pillow or two under your head to help drain fluids from the face, you'll also want to reach for a brightening eye cream. Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Eye Cream contains niacinamide and antioxidants to brighten, plus hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and make it look like you slept a full eight.
2. For fine lines & wrinkles
The right eye cream can be your best defense against crow's feet and creeping fine lines around the eyes. Hydration is key here, and the I'm From Ginseng Eye Cream does not only hydrate, but also revitalise and firm tired eyes. Containing three types of rare Korean ginseng, this eye cream will help boost collagen production to restore life to tired skin.
3. For under-eye bags or puffiness
Consuming too much salty food or drinks like coffee and alcohol can cause our skin to retain water, thus making us look puffy, particularly around the eye area. Our De Puffing Eye Massage Tool was specifically designed to help reduce the puffiness in the area. Use it together with the Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Gel, which contains caffeine to help de-puff, while its cooling gel texture provides a refreshing finish that's great for both AM and PM use.
4. For dryness & irritation
The skin around the eyes is more delicate and thinner than the rest of the face, making it more prone to sensitivity and dryness. It's also subject to a lot of tugging and pulling, especially if you like rubbing your eyes or using eye makeup daily. This is why it's important to use a dedicated treatment at the end of the day to properly soothe, heal and lock in moisture. We recommend the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream, which contains super collagen water to deeply nourish, moisturise, and firm the skin around your eyes.
The iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream is also another great all-rounder made with 40.5% propolis and 9.2% sea buckthorn to not only hydrate, but also brighten and provide anti-wrinkle benefits for the delicate eye area.
