Beauty SOS: How to tackle puffy eyes

If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, the chances are your eyes will tell the tale.

And it’s no surprise really when you consider that the delicate skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on your face, and it ages 36 per cent faster.

But thanks to a new wave of clever beauty goodies, puffy peepers and dark circles could be a thing of the past.

When shopping for eye products, look out for products rich in hyaluronic acid and vitamin E which will soothe and plump delicate skin.

Here are some eye-boosting goodies to try out:

L’Oréal Revitalift Triple Power Eye Treatment

This caffeine-rich formula helps constrict your blood vessels and minimise dark circles. Plus, it contains hyaluronic acid, which seeps into your skin and plumps it up from the inside out, reducing any fine lines.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum

Packed with anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid this is a nifty double action product which will tone and moisturise your eye area while blitzing any fine lines too.

Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Eye Cream

Enriched with a whole host of natural ingredients, this is a pricier option but has lots of eye-boosting benefits. Myrtle extract addresses skin elasticity. Mourera fluviatilis extract provides moisture-binding properties to help maintain the skin’s water levels. Meanwhile, baobab polysaccharides leave skin looking and feeling firmer and rhodiola rosea extract helps prevent the appearance of dark circles and eye puffiness.

Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm

A wallet-friendly option, this soothing balm is enriched with pro-vitamin B5, vitamin E, jojoba oil, shea butter, and bisabolol to reduce puffiness and relaxes tired eyes as soon as you swipe it on.
