The skin around your eyes cannot lie to you. That’s why it’s usually the first place to show signs of aging (or a rough night) — crow’s feet, dark bags, fine lines. To remedy these, you can make some lifestyle choices: sleep more, drink less, stop smoking, stay hydrated. Or, just cheat with eye creams.
During the day, opt for an SPF-protected one, like DDF Protective Eye Cream with Sunscreen ($55). Before bed, use one with retional, like RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream ($22). Also, nothing sullies the eyes faster than the sun. Wear shades often.
