Under-Eye Masks: Benefits and Recommendations

QUICK AND EASY –  There are many solutions to help us get rid of dark circles and puffiness around our eyes. There’s the natural path (e.g., tea bags) as well as the modern-day approach (e.g., gels, creams and serums). And then there are under-eye masks and patches.

Think of these as lying somewhere between tea bags and eye gels. While it does not work as well as eye creams, under-eye masks serve as a quick and easy solution to counteract the negative effects of dehydration, sun exposure, irritation and poor sleep on the area under your eyes. By cooling this area, under-eye masks de-puff, rehydrate and smoothen the skin, making it look a lot more refreshed and bright. So, if you have, say, an early meeting and just had a long night the day before (of working or partying), under-eye masks can definitely help you look your best.


Affordable and offered in a pack that with another set of masks for different parts of your body (including Neck & Collarbone or Smile Line), Innisfree’s Anti-Aging Eye Mask helps the skin become more resilient. It works on wrinkles around the eyes and deals with dull skin tone.
