Eye Candy: Diminish Dark Circles, Crow's Feet & Puffiness with Healing & Hydrating Treatments

Photo by Esra

Eye creams hold a special place in my heart. First of all, what's not to like? These multitasking miracle workers not only moisturize, mend and minimize fine lines and wrinkles, but they also combat crow's feet, crepiness of the upper eyelid, dark circles and puffiness.

Second, they feel good. Cooling and calming creams provide a rejuvenating rush of refreshment. They're also formulated to smooth and soften without any sticky residue.

Finally, a little dab will do you. You don't need several layers of product to experience the benefits of these luxurious lotions. In fact, most manufacturers recommend using your ring finger to apply a pea-size amount to the eye contour and above the crease of the lid twice each day (morning and evening).

April marks Women's Eye Health and Safety Month. In honor of this special occasion, we'd like to remind you to schedule your annual eye exam. Plus, take a look-see at our fave gels, creams, serums and treatments. They're designed to help you transform your overworked orbs into pretty peepers.
