Fast-Acting Brightening Eye Creams For Every Budget

Because looking tired when we actually aren't is annoying
Photo 1/16
It doesn't matter how old or young we are — dark circles don't discriminate, and can make anyone look worn down. We now know that they are, in the majority of cases, hereditary, but that certain lifestyle habits (like smoking, drinking, unprotected sun exposure and irregular sleep) can help them appear and stick around. So, what ingredients should one look for in an eye cream in order to banish dark circles?

Niacinamide and vitamin C will deliver results and, according to dermatologist Debra Jaliman, author of "Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist", so will caffeine, peptides, hyaluronic acid, licorice extract, arbutin and kojic acid. All of these work by either inhibiting melanin production or by having skin-lightening effect. We've got quite a roundup of brand new and time-tested creams, which will not only fight dark circles, but will also hydrate, protect and illuminate the under-eye area — and you won't have to use up the whole bottle before you start to notice a visible difference.
