Form dark circles to wrinkles, puffiness and under-eye bags, there are a lot that can affect the look of the eye area. But banishing such problems is not an impossible task.

All it takes is the right products, plus the care and attention to pamper your eyes.

Goodness from Jeju

Innisfree’s upgraded green tea line uses organic fresh green tea water and green tea seed, ingredients grown on Jeju’s Seo-Gwang Tea Field.

It includes a hydrating eye cream which has a soft and lightweight formula to moisturise the delicate eye area and keep it from dryness.

Extracted from the nourishing ingredients of fresh green tea leaves, it is enriched with amino acids, and provides excellent moisturising benefits to the skin.

During your skincare routine, use a finger to apply a small amount of eye cream around your eyes, then, gently pat it on your skin for the best absorption.

For visibly energised skin

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s latest range includes the VitaminC Lactic Firm & Bright Eye Treatment.

Topical vitamin C is needed to fight the accelerated ageing process by providing antioxidant protection to neutralise free radicals, while also being an integral part of new collagen synthesis.

This silky, fast-absorbing treatment powered by three forms of vitamin C, lactic acid, and tranexamic acid which claim to firm the delicate eye area and reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and fine lines in just one week.

Vitamin C and tranexamic acid visibly improve skin density, brighten, depuff and improve overall tone, while lactic acid and centella asiatica help replenish the skin’s moisture barrier while improving the look of fatigued eyes.

Brightening and firming

Dermalogica’s BioLumin-C Eye Serum builds on the success of the brand’s original BioLumin-C Serum, delivering the same brightening and firming power of the original serum – in a lightweight formula optimised to help fortify the delicate eye area.

This supercharged serum delivers the brand’s ultra-stable vitamin C complex where skin needs it most, brightening and firming to address fine lines and wrinkles at their source.

It lists its benefits as fighting premature skin ageing caused by daily eye movements and environmental stress, delivering advanced ingredients to brighten and firm.

Also included in the formula is arjun tree extract, which is rich in polyphenols and boosts skin elasticity, and provides antioxidant benefits.

Additionally, micro-algae extract energises, smooths and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while tremella mushroom locks in moisture and supports skin elasticity.

Finally, salvia hispanica (chia seed) oil, moisturises and helps quench free radicals while poria mushroom helps restore the skin’s natural luminosity.

A rejuvenating formula

I’m From’s Ginseng Eye Cream contains three types of rare ginseng that provide nutrition to tired eyes, boost collagen production around the eyes and diminish wrinkles and fine lines.

The wood-cultivated ginseng in the cream has a high ginsenoside content and is recommended for all skin types, those with wrinkles and those who want to improve skin elasticity.

Use it as a spot treatment by first applying toner to smooth out the skin texture, then, take an appropriate amount and apply lightly around the eyes and gently tap until it is fully absorbed.

To use it as a facial care cream, take an appropriate amount at the cream stage of your skincare and apply evenly over the entire face and let it absorb.

Mix it with one to two drops of Ginseng Serum to rapidly sooth exhausted skin.

Tired eyes revival

Supergoop! introduces the Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream SPF 40, a fast-absorbing 100% non-nano zinc oxide eye cream that instantly brightens, hydrates and protects the delicate eye area from UVA, UVB, blue light and IRA.

This creamy formula easily glides on skin and revives tired eyes with an illuminating pink tint, perfect for first-time eye cream users who understand the importance of prevention, or those who already have a great nighttime eye cream and who are in search of the perfect daytime counterpart (with SPF protection!).

This product’s formula contains a blend of probiotics, pomegranate and caffeine to help brighten and help reduce the appearance of dark circles, and helps to fight wrinkles, loss of firmness and hyperpigmentation (which leads to those dark circles) that comes from sun exposure.

You can also use it as a primer for under-eye makeup: it primes for concealer thanks to its smooth texture that leaves behind zero white cast.
