While both of those things don’t permanently remove my under-eye circles, they do a good job of making them disguised and less noticeable. For those times when I really need a quick fix, I reach for my under-eye patches. They might be a good option for you when you’re in a pinch and don’t have the right concealer. Plus, some under-eye serums and creams take a few days to really take effect.
Under-eye masks have really taken off in the past couple of years, and for good reason. They have multiple benefits—some have anti-aging properties, some disappear under-eye circles, and others hydrate that very delicate area. But the best part is a lot of them work in 15 minutes or less. So you can have them on while you’re getting dressed for the day or making breakfast. I love using them before I have important Zoom meetings or presentations since I don’t have the luxury of a ring light to give me that ultra-glowy look. Plus, it’s just a nice, little moment of self-care.
Try it out for yourself. Take a look at some of the best eye patches below, based on specific needs.
