NATION – In the hustle and bustle of life, everyone can experience fatigue and stress, often reflected in the appearance of dreaded dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines around your eyes.

Why does this happen? Some people are more genetically predisposed to these changes. According to Dr. Wendy Lee, an oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon, people with richer skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation under the eyes. Environmental factors, like poor sleep and sun exposure, can also contribute to dark circles. Seasonal allergies or illnesses can cause dilated veins to show beneath the thin eyelid skin.

“The skin around the eyes is amongst the thinnest of all the skin on the body. In fact, it’s ten times thinner than many other skin areas,” said Lee. “That’s why it’s important to prioritize a routine that helps keep your delicate eye area refreshed and revitalized.”

To help achieve bright, refreshed eyes, NYC board certified dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner shares these tips:

  1. Eye Cream
    Eye creams are formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes and should be used daily. One highly-rated option is RETINOL CORREXION® Line Smoothing Eye Cream from Roc Skincare, which has over 20,000 5-star reviews and is clinically proven to reduce dark circles, depuff eyes, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  2. Chill Out
    Prioritize 7-9 hours of sleep a night to let your body rest and refresh, which has a big impact on how your eyes appear. Cooling techniques, like using a cold compress or a cryo-facial wand, can also help to soothe swelling and restrict blood vessels.
  3. Health Check
    Healthy habits like wearing daily sunscreen, drinking plenty of water, avoiding smoking, and maintaining a nutrient-rich diet can help reduce or eliminate dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness around eyes.

“Effectively treating puffiness and dark circles doesn’t have to be complicated,” said Zeichner. “A few simple steps and mindful changes can help you look your best so you can be your best.”
