You know those days when you wake up and your under eyes look as if they've taken a right hook from Ronda Rousey? Sometimes eight hours of sleep isn’t an option and a concealer just won't cut it. Although great eye creams are few and far between, SI Swimsuit has a few tricks we swear by -- and fave products -- which have us looking awake even for those 4am call times.
- Keep your eye cream and gel eye mask in the fridge. Try Skin Iceland's under-eye mask and this gel mask from Amazon.
- Stay hydrated. Have a chic water bottle you love so you won't forget about it.
- Use a Gua Sha. Run it under cold water and use it with an oil or moisturizer.
- Try eye drops. Think of them as coffee for your eyes.
Best Under Eye Creams
Olehenriksen Banana Bright Cream
Honestly, this product has received so much press that I had no choice but to purchase it. Was it worth it? Oh yeah. It has a slightly orange tint that helps color correct under-eye darkness.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Brightening Cream
Cooling and lightweight. Best option for under makeup.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream
I want everything by Dr. Barbara Sturm. Her products are packed with incredible clean ingredients and this is no exception.
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
Is there anything an avocado can’t do? The product's green shade helps neutralize dark under eyes while it hydrates.
La Mer Eye Concentrate
Super amazing, super reparative, super expensive. This luxury item is a splurge, but is incredible for diminishing under-eye darkness.
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
The best affordable eye serum out there. It contains caffeine and green tea extract and instantly tightens.
