The Best Eye Creams for Puffy Eyes

What Causes Puffy Eyes?

First things first: Puffy eyes are normal. Dr. Rabach explains that people can have a genetic predisposition to puffy eyes as a result of fat piercing through the muscle.

If you’ve inherited under-eye bags from your family, don’t expect your puffiness to disappear overnight. But (and this is a biggie) sometimes puffy eyes are the result of easy-to-change lifestyle habits. “Eating salt can cause water retention and seasonal allergies, or allergies to eyes creams can cause swelling and fluid build up around the eye,” explains Dr. Rabach.

Can Eye Creams *Really* Reduce Puffiness?

In short: The best eye creams can reduce puffiness. That said, it’s important to have reasonable expectations. A few pats of product isn’t going to completely remove the puffy under eyes you’ve had your entire life. The right ingredients can, however, make a visibly noticeable difference. So, what should you look for? “Ceramides and hyaluronic acid will make sure the skin is hydrated, while caffeine can shrink blood vessels,” adds Dr. Rabach.
