The Best Eye Masks To Target Bags, Puffiness And Dark Circles

The only bags we want to carry are designer.

Dark circles and puffy under-eyes are unlucky trade-offs when you work long hours and get very little-to-no sleep. Many people have "raccoon eyes" that are hereditary, due to having extremely thin skin around the eyes, which makes purple-blue blood vessels even more prominent. However, genes and a hectic lifestyle shouldn't stop you from dealing with the kind of baggage you don't want.

Eye masks and patches can work wonders for firming and toning the under-eye area. Similar to face sheet masks that celebrities are always sporting on social media, these gel-like treatments are generally formulated with hydrating and plumping ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, caffeine and colloidal gold.

Solely relying on eye patches isn't an excuse to skimp on sleep or go crazy with high-sodium foods. But if you're in need of a quick and temporary fix for puffiness and dark circles, you know where to turn.
