How to fix puffy eyes

The delicate skin around your eyes can reveal a multitude of sins – sleepless nights, stress, burning the candle at both ends – and it’s usually the first place you notice signs of ageing, because the under-eye skin is much thinner than the skin on the rest of your face or body.

For that reason, an eye cream or gel is an important step in your skincare regime, providing targeted support where your skin needs it most. Natural, plant-powered skincare can help reduce puffy eyes when your concealer isn’t cutting it – with none of the nasties of chemical-laded treatments.

If you have puffy eyelids in the morning, the cooling and soothing properties of a puffy eye cream can work wonders to wake up tired eyes and address puffiness. High-performance botanicals work together to reduce fluid build-up around the eyes, replenish hydration, and protect the delicate eye area from pollutants.
