Skin Care Tips to Help Reduce the Look of Puffy Under-Eyes Skin Care Tips to Help Reduce the Look of Puffy Under-Eyes Skin Care Tips to Help Reduce the Look of Puffy Under-Eyes

Puffy under-eyes can take away focus from an otherwise beautiful appearance, causing you to look tired and older than you are. The delicate area of the skin around your eyes is susceptible to all sorts of skin care concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles and sagging skin, and unfortunately, puffiness is no exception. Thankfully, once you notice under-eye bags cropping up underneath your eyes, there’s no reason to lose all hope. While you may not be able to get rid of puffy under-eyes completely, you can reduce their appearance. And we’re sharing four skin care tips to do just that, covering everything from which eye cream to use to how to conceal your under-eye bags with color corrector.

Under-Eye Puffiness Tip #1: Be Consistent with Eye Cream

You knew this tip was coming, didn’t you? We can’t talk about under-eye puffiness without covering eye creams. After all, puffiness is one of the most popular concerns eye creams can address. If you’re fed up with having bags under your eyes, the first step you’ll want to take it making eye cream a consistent part of your skin care routine, being sure to use it every day. Have your pick from our best eye creams for puffy under-eyes:

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Eye Treatment: This eye cream can help to reduce the look of wrinkles and under-eye bags with continued use over time. Plus, it has a cooling tip applicator!

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Eye: The silky, hydrating formula glides onto skin for an immediate smoothing effect and cool finish. Formulated with Pro-Retinol, vitamin C, and a specifically-designed peptide for the eye area, it has an instant blurring effect on crow’s feet, fatigue signs, and under-eye bags. With continued use over time, it can also help improve the look of dark circles.

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm: As skin matures, one of the biggest changes around the eyes is the loss of moisture, nutrients, and natural oils. This rich, luxurious eye cream intensely moisturizes mature skin. Formulated with precious oils, the formula helps provide long-lasting hydration and comfort.

Under-Eye Puffiness Tip #2: Keep It Cool

If you’ve ever worn a face mask that has been in the fridge (try it!), you know that the cold feels amazing on your under-eye area. What you might not have realized is that it’s also good for your skin. According to Mayo Clinic, a cold compress can help to reduce the appearance of bags under your eyes. While it’s sometimes recommended to use cold spoons or cucumber slices, you don’t have to get so crafty if you don’t want to. Instead, simply wet a washcloth with cool water and while sitting up, apply it to the skin around your eyes using mild pressure. You can also try storing your eye cream in the fridge so that you can apply it cold. Certain moisturizers and face masks can be kept in your refrigerator as well.

Under-Eye Puffiness Tip #3: Color Correct

When all else fails, fake it ‘til you make it. Hide dark under-eye bags with the help of a little color correcting concealer. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayons, which come in three shades that can disguise dark circles: peach (for fair to light skin tones), bisque (for light to medium skin tones), and orange (for medium to deep skin tones). Apply your color corrector of choice in an upside-down triangle, then blend in. Follow up with flesh-toned concealer (like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer) and foundation (like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation) to perfect your makeup look and hide those under-eye bags.
