They say that eyes are the windows to the soul, which means they give away our emotions and thoughts. It's often easy to tell if someone is happy, sad, angry or excited just by looking at their eyes.

In the spectrum of beauty, our eyes can also tell a lot about our age and our well-being. If you've had a late night or early morning with little sleep, your eyes will often show it. If you're well-rested or have a stellar skin care routine, your eyes will show that as well.

Proper care of the eye area is key, no matter your age. In fact, most skin experts recommend consumers start using eye cream in their early 20s. Instead of waiting for that wrinkle or dark circle to appear, dermatologists say we should treat the area before the treatment is actually needed. "Eye creams are good for prevention and correction, so really anyone should be using one as part of their daily skin regimen," says Dr. Suneel Chilikuri, cosmetic and dermatologic surgeon at Refresh Dermatology in Houston.

If you're searching for a solid eye cream and don't know where to start, here are some editor- and skin expert-approved eye treatments according to your eye concern.
