whether or not you need to put a special product in your cosmetic bag for the skin around the eyes, everyone decides on the basis of personal experience and preference. However, if you notice a special moodiness and an instant reaction to any influences behind your skin, then it is better to be puzzled by the search for a good helper who will solve the problems of puffiness, dryness and dark circles usual for this area. At our request, Dasha Abramova, the author of the Byebyeflaw telegram channel, chose ten proven remedies that will bring the skin around the eyes into proper shape.
Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream
A product from the new line of Clinique Pep-Start, launched in the wake of the craze for universal, multifunctional products. Leaving aside the brackets, the roll-on applicator - another meaningless variation on the eye roller theme - is a great tool for those who do not like to understand multi-step systems of care: it revives in the morning, as well as, if necessary, during the day and prepares the skin for applying makeup.
Librederm Wide Action Hyaluronic Eye Cream
The Russian brand Librederm has a large line of eye skin care products. The most versatile of these is a broad-spectrum hyaluronic acid cream. It fights puffiness, tightens skin and brightens dark circles. Manufacturers recommend using it as an express mask: apply in a thin layer, leave for a few minutes, and then blot the excess with a napkin. Owners of sensitive skin should pay attention to their own cornflower regenerating cream.
L'Oréal Revitalift Triple Power Eye Treatment
Another hyaluronic acid product that strengthens the skin around the eyes and fights puffiness is from the Revitalift line. The cream is especially good for people with thin skin: after application, it feels like the skin has been covered with a dense matte protective layer. A metal applicator is used for application, which really, as if by magic, always remains cool regardless of storage conditions.
Clark's Botanicals Anti-Puff Eye Cream
Clark's Botanicals is a successful brand with a sad history. In 2002, a tragedy struck in the family of Dr. Harold Clark: his son Francesco, at that time the editor of Harper's Bazaar, was paralyzed, having received a spinal cord injury. Due to damage to the nervous system, he also developed skin problems. Unable to find a suitable care for himself, Francesco, together with his father, begins work on his own formulas. Like many brands created for itself, Clark's Botanicals is distinguished by a mean product line, a simple care scheme and quality that manufacturers are personally responsible for.
This cream successfully fights both edema and dark circles: the vitamin K contained in it normalizes venous outflow and prevents vasodilation, and caffeine has a drainage effect. Francesco himself says that he keeps the cream in the refrigerator, since his main problem is swelling in the morning. Well, this is all for talking about whether there are cosmetics for women and men.
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
The bestseller of the brand - beyond age, season and standard categorization of skin problems around the eyes. Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids - they are the ones that best restore the lipid barrier of the skin, which protects it from harmful substances. Very rich and dense, this cream is suitable for sensitive skin, instantly moisturizes, while it shrinks well with primer and subsequent layers of cosmetics. Like many other products, this cream has a short video tutorial on the Kiehl's channel.
The Diopti line captivates first of all by the fact that it is clearly divided into categories, which in our time oversaturated with cosmetics is worth its weight in gold. Each cream: Diopticrème Anti-Wrinkles - anti-wrinkle, Diopticerne Anti-Dark Circles - against dark circles and Dioptigel Anti-Puffiness - against edema. Also in the series is Diopticerne Tinted - a cream that is almost identical in composition to Diopticerne, only with a tone.By the way, Kiehl’s has a similar product called Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector - a versatile concealer that masks dark circles while caring for the skin.
Such a division today is almost a rarity in the world of beauty: for a long time, all products for the skin around the eyes routinely promise to solve all possible problems at once, which in fact is not always true. But the products from this line are real honest workers. Each costs about one and a half thousand rubles and copes with its task with a bang.
skyn ICELAND Icelandic Relief Eye Pen
Cream in a package similar to a concealer from the beautiful Icelandic brand skyn ICELAND. The feeling that the skin is beginning to tighten, appears, even if you just read the list of ingredients out loud: here you have Icelandic algae, cotton powder, and Arctic cloudberries. For the final victory over dark circles and edema, you can periodically use their own patches: this is one of the few remedies, the result of which is immediately noticeable.
Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Eye-Reviver Gel
The main feature of this product, as the name suggests, is hydration. After application, it is better to wait at least five minutes before starting makeup: during this time, the skin freshens and tightens, as if it is glowing from the inside, and dark circles brighten noticeably.
MAC Fast Response Eye Cream
The tool, in general, is one hundred percent consistent with the name - it is a lifesaver in case a person needs to be urgently revived. Silicones for perfect smoothness and lots of caffeine to relieve puffiness. But you should not expect a long-term effect from it. Roughly speaking, such a cream is more likely to be attributed to makeup than care. You can, for example, use it in the morning, and get something more serious at night.
Korres Wild Rose Eye Cream SPF 15
One of the bestsellers of the Greek brand tightens the skin, fights against crow's feet and pigmentation, and also protects against photoaging with UV filters. Wild rose fruits are known for their high content of vitamin C, which has an intensive regenerating effect on the skin, helps to fight expression lines and pigmentation. Among the many positive reviews about the gratitude cream from allergy sufferers and people with sensitive skin.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Gel
A thick, rich gel with a complex composition and a shimmering effect from the Bliss oxygen line (it is best known for the mask that begins to foam on the face - mainly, however, thanks not to the result, but to visual special effects). Of the active ingredients, manufacturers emphasize primarily caffeine, which removes puffiness, and vitamin C as a powerful antioxidant. The gel is designed to fight bags under the eyes, tighten the skin and refresh the look - it works best for the last two points.
