Help Reduce the Appearance of Under-Eye Bags with These 3 Hacks Help Reduce the Appearance of Under-Eye Bags with These 3 Hacks Help Reduce the Appearance of Under-Eye Bags with These 3 Hacks

Sometimes, there’s just no way around it: under-eye bags happen. And when you have under-eye bags and under-eye puffiness, you might feel like all attention is focused on them. Of course, no one notices your extra baggage the way you do, but that’s not much comfort in the moment! Unfortunately, you may not be able to completely get rid of under-eye bags, but there are a few simple steps you can add to your skin care routine to help minimize the appearance of puffiness under the eyes, such as using an eye cream. Want to learn them all? Keep reading for three hacks to diminish the look of under-eye bags, including using our best eye creams for puffiness. Bonus, some of these hacks can even help minimize the appearance of dark circles and crow's feet, too. Win, win, win.

HACK #1: ADD EYE CREAM TO YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE

The same way that finding the right facial cleanser or moisturizer for your skin can be quite the task, selecting the perfect eye cream for your specific under-eye needs can be as well. To help you navigate the skin care product aisle, we’ve rounded up our best eye creams that can help reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness. Take your pick from the below eye cream options and add one into your routine twice a day, every morning and evening. Whichever eye cream you choose, apply it gently onto clean skin, dotting around the eye area then using your ring finger to pat until it absorbs.

L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel: This non-sticky eye treatment has a roller-ball applicator so the soothing formula will feel oh-so-wonderful when rolled onto your under-eye bags. Formulated with manuka honey, nurturing oils, and antioxidants, it helps cushion mature and very dry skin with extra moisture.

L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Anti-Aging Eye Brightener: This eye cream is basically a color-corrector and hydrating moisturizer all in one, easy step. While the rosy tone helps balance out under-eye darkness, the hydrating formula reduces puffiness and visibly brightens the skin.

L’Oréal Paris Eye Defense: This light, non-greasy gel-cream is formulated with caffeine and hyaluronic acid to help defend against premature signs of aging around the eyes, including under-eye puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream: Want to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and also stave off wrinkles ASAP? This one’s for you. This eye cream can help make the skin around your eyes feel firmer and look smoother, plus it can also help reduce the appearance of dark circles and under-eye bags, all with continued use over time.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power™ Eye Treatment: This luxurious, lightweight eye cream formulated with hyaluronic acid, caffeine, and Pro-Xylane can help reduce the look of under-eye bags, wrinkles, and puffiness. Plus, it’s got a cooling applicator. (Applying your eye cream cold can have some benefits—but more on that later!)

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Renewal Eye Cream: This eye cream formulated for mature skin can help immediately hydrate your skin and diminish the look of dark circles, under-eye bags, and wrinkles with continued use over time. Additionally, it can help make your eye area look more radiant with continued use.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Eye Treatment: This eye cream has a silky, hydrating formula that glides onto skin for an immediate smoothing effect and cool finish. Formulated with Pro-Retinol A, vitamin C, and a specifically-designed peptide for the eye area, it can also help improve the look of under-eye bags, wrinkles, and dark circles with continued use over time.

HACK #2: STORE YOUR EYE CREAM IN THE FRIDGE

Yes, really, you might want to think about placing your eye cream in the refrigerator (or your mini skin care fridge). Not only will it feel super refreshing, but it can also help reduce the look of dark circles and under-eye puffiness. The Mayo Clinic recommends using a cool compress to reduce or eliminate bags under the eyes, and a chilled eye cream can be used to a similar effect. So, go ahead and clear some space in your fridge!

Editor's note: Fun fact: The same reason cold eye cream is beneficial for your under-eye area is why cool cucumber slices are sometimes used as part of a facial! 

HACK #3: USE color corrector and CONCEALER TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

If you experience dark circles or under-eye bags regularly, then you know just how frustrating they can be. When the rest of your complexion looks perfect, is it so much to ask that your under-eye area does, too? We don’t think so, and that’s precisely why we always stay stocked up on concealer—and that includes both color-correcting concealer and ones that match our skin tone. Here’s why: When you experience discoloration below your eyes, you can dip a concealer brush into the creamy peach-colored concealer in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit to help neutralize the bluish hue beneath your eyes. Once you’ve applied the peach concealer, follow it up with a brightening concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, to help hide under-eye bags.
