When catching some surplus Z's isn't doing the trick to get rid of those impossible undereye circles, it's time to put peeper problems in their place with an eye care regimen that has dark circles packing their bags.
Unfortunately, circle drama doesn't disappear after one refreshing round of beauty sleep. It's a good idea to incorporate an eye cream into your nightly beauty routine. 3Lab's WW Eye Cream ($250) battles signs of aging at a cellular level with its patented "bioengineered growth hormone," while a hefty dose of Vitamin B3 slows the production of melanin, the nasty agent that causes those dark circles. If that sounds too science-y (or pricey) for your tastes, add Bioelements Multi-Task Eye Cream ($34) into your rotation. It helps brighten undereye skin while soothing agents de-puff.
Supplement your routine with a once-weekly spa-like treatment. Beauty world geniuses have created portable (and inedible) pads packed with all the benefits of soothing cucumber. Earth Therepeutics Cucumber Eye Pads ($6) are a treat, with cooling cuke meeting Vitamin E (a free radical fighter), aloe vera (a hydrator), and green tea and chamomile (organic anti-oxidants that fight signs of aging).
Finally, while you're waiting for those unsightly rings to disappear, fake flawless skin with a little concealer action. Physician's Formula Concealer Twins 2-in-1 Correct and Cover Cream ($14.35) is a double-ended doodad with a colored correcter at one end (yellow hides purple-y circles, while green beats redness) and a spot concealer on the other. And don't let flaky mascara or stray shadow make your problems worse. Always keep a bottle of extra gentle Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover ($7) on hand to nip wandering eye makeup mishaps. Maybe we should send Rachel Zoe some?
