One of the questions that I always get is whether or not eye creams work.
The short answer is: maybe.
So far, there is no proven ingredient that can really lessen bags or dark circles, and the only things that can help is to drink more water, get more sleep, and use a better concealer. There are some laser treatments available at the dermatologist’s office that offer relief of under eye circles.
However, there is some good in eye creams. Some have a cooling gel formula that can give great relief to tired eyes – perfect for if you’ve had a long day or if you’ve been traveling a lot.
Some creams are thicker than those you would use on your face, so they add more moisture to the delicate eye area. Putting such a cream on your whole face might just make you break out.
Other creams are just an expensive way for you to add to your dresser, and are better left at the drugstore.
Should you get an eye cream? If it alleviates dryness around that area and you’ll use it: sure, get it! If it’s just too much for you to spend or if you’re not one that can be bothered with an extra beauty step, then leave the eyecreams to someone else.
