Your Guide to Skin Care Essentials

Do you wake up with puffy, dark circles under your eyes? Dot on some eye cream! Formulated for specific eye area concerns, eye creams add moisture, address fine lines and wrinkles, and keep you from looking like a raccoon.

Look for a gel formula (with caffeine, preferably) if you have oily skin and/or puffiness. The lighter consistency won’t turn greasy but still prevents surface dryness. Dry skin gals should stick to balmy textures. For dark circles try a cream with vitamin K.

Gently pat your cream, day and night, along the ocular bone—around the outer edge of your eye—before applying your moisturizer.
