Look For These Ingredients For the Best Results
If you're wanting to take the first steps at cracking open an eye cream, look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides to help plump and hydrate the skin, as well as vitamin C for brightening and caffeine to help with dark circles. "My favorite products for the eye area have specialized ingredients to not only stimulate collagen to tighten the skin and improve fine lines, but also lighten the skin so that area doesn't look so dark and hollow as we age," explained cosmetic dermatologist Jason Emer.
Our personal favorite: Restorsea Pro Firming Eye Serum ($85). This special blend contains caffeine, which helps to stimulate circulation, and stevia, to reduce under-eye puffiness. "I also always recommend popping eye creams in the fridge to help decrease puffiness and swelling," Sarkar said.
