Brighter Eyes

Dark circles and puffiness around the eyes can make you look tired and prevent you from looking your absolute best. There are many causes for dark circles, often it is lack of sleep or dehydration. It can also be caused by overexposure to the sun or they can be an inherited trait.

You can try the at home methods such as cucumbers  or olive oil around the eyes. But if those don’t work, we have decided to try out a few products. Here are our findings!

We tested out a plethora of products and only the best made it onto our list. We found that for the day, an eye cream with SPF is necessary. However, at night we wanted one with soothing properties.

For a great eye cream during the day try this advanced alpha hydroxy treatment cream. It protects and repairs the eye area by reducing puffiness and minimizing dark circles. For added sun protection, it contains a chemical free SPF to prevent any further damage. Total Eye Care Treatment, $57, Dermalogica
