Dr. Carl Thornfeldt, clinical dermatologist and founder of Epionce Skincare, naturally recommends his Epionce Renewal Eye Cream ($70), which helps repair the skin barrier, stops chronic inflammation in the skin, and also contains "Soft Focus Technology" that reflects the light to help reduce visible dark circles and fine lines.

Vargas also recommends a product from her own line, the Revitalizing Eye Cream ($75). It contains sweet potato, which has vitamin A for cell renewal, vitamin B to tone and soothe the skin, vitamin C for collagen production, and beta-carotene for healing.

"For those who have difficulty tolerating prescription retinoids, the retinol-based Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil ($105) can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall texture of the skin, while also minimizing side effects of dryness and irritation commonly seen when using prescription and some cream-based versions of retinoids," says dermatologist Dr. Janiene Luke.

A couple of my personal favorite eye creams are the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado ($48) and Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream ($27). While neither are specifically formulated for antiaging purposes, I have seen a vast improvement in the brightness and dryness of my undereye area.
