Sleep is for the weak — until we wake up with dark under-eye circles, dehydration lines, and puffiness. Fortunately, one skincare product in your skincare routine helps you achieve a faux I’m-fully-awake look: under-eye masks. Similar to face masks, under-eye masks help nourish your lackluster skin while curbing the telltale signs of aging and fatigue like fine lines.
If you have been skipping on sleep and feel that your delicate under eyes need more love, here are the best under-eye masks you can check out this 2021 — all infused with ultra-cooling ingredients to brighten and depuff your tired peepers.
In just 15 minutes of use, you will look like someone who actually sticks to their bedtime. In addition to the fancy packaging, these Lumin patches brighten dark circles, smooth fine lines, and reduce inflammation.
