Bags, fine lines, puffiness—everything but your love life (sry).
No matter how many hours of sleep you get or how healthy you eat, eye issues—in the form of puffiness, dryness, dark circles, and fine lines—are pretty much inevitable. Why? The eye area tends to show the most signs of stress and ageing, because (1) the muscles in that area get a lot of action (like every time you laugh, blink, or roll your eyes), and (2) the skin around your eyes is super thin and delicate. The best bet for making this finicky area look smoother and brighter? An under-eye cream. But that said, not all eye creams are created equal—and some straight up don’t even work—so I’ve weeded through all the BS formulas to bring you the 10 best eye creams that really, truly work magic.
