Why does the skin around the eyes always exhibit the first signs of aging? Well, this skin is incredibly thin—Since they lack oil glands around the eyes and have a fine texture, it needs some extra TLC. Along with that fact, we are repeatedly squinting and smiling, forming wrinkles. So let’s talk about how we can step up our eye game to help prevent those pesky lines and crow’s feet.
Lack of sleep, dehydration, hours spent on gaming, and staring at a computer or mobile screen are some of the reasons that cause dark under-eye circles. But how do we get rid of it? Well, there are so many eye creams in the market. Unlike eye creams that often sit heavily on your skin, eye masks contain lightweight serums packed with supercharged ingredients such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and more.
Eye masks are exactly what they sound like: a mask that’s applied to the eye. Actually, under the eyes, not the actual eyes. The masks are applied under the eyes to help relieve puffy eyes, which is usually done with a cooling and hydrating mixture of ingredients. Some eye masks also include a caffeine boost– and that’s where fatigue-fighting, radiance-boosting under-eye masks come in.
They also double up as skin refreshers with a satisfying cooling effect that fakes the look of a good night’s sleep.
