The Eye Creams That Will Help You Take Back Your Mornings

If you want to deal with the souvenirs from all those late nights with your laptop, you're going to need a lot more than a cold spoon, sister.

Fashion month is all glitz on the runways, but everything else you don’t see is the chaos. Early call times, running through streets to get to shows before the doors shut, late nights at dinners and after parties – and then it all repeats itself the next day. Basically, we’re sleep deprived and we could honestly do with a relaxing spa sesh at the Ritz Paris just a couple of streets down. Thank heavens for eye creams that at least help us fool the world that we’ve had a good seven to nine hours of sleep.

Now, let’s get something out of the way first: eye creams aren’t placebos or just more reason for you to spend money on a product you don’t need. There is a reason why separate products exist just for your under-eye region. The skin around our eyes are among the thinnest on our bodies. It makes sense then that we can’t use regular face moisturisers on the eyes. For those with more sensitive skin, such moisturisers may be too strong and may cause stinging sensations, which is a huge red flag if you’re trying out anything around the eyes. Plus, most eye creams specifically target dark rings, wrinkles and puffiness. You want to fight the beast, you’ve got to use the correct weapon.

If you’re looking for a fast route to de-panda the under-eye region, you’re better off with a concealer, because eye creams takes three to six weeks for a significant change to happen. Those dark circles aren’t going to magically disappear overnight, so remember to keep your eye cream close and apply it religiously. If not, your efforts might very well just go to waste.

Keep an eye out for creams that contain hydrating and renewing acids, as well as retinol (cell growth) and neuropeptides (elasticity and collagen) and vitamins C (collagen) and E (nourish and soothe). This one from Kate Somerville that targets dark eye circles and puffiness, has got peptides, and is free of synthetic fragrances or dyes, petrochemicals, GMOS, and Triclosan. Is it any wonder that it is one of our favourites? If you’re looking for something more anti-aging, Dr. Barbara Sturm works like a charm with extracts from fancy plants that will do wonders for your skin. Shop the eye creams on our radar below – but do try to get some proper beauty sleep as well, okay?
