Wondering which is the best eye cream for dark circles and puffiness? The following article reviews the best creams in the market whose manufacturer’s claim that they are extremely effective in treating both these conditions. This should help you to take an informed decision, before choosing to buy a cream.
Dark circles around the eyes develop due to various reasons such as stress, lack of sleep, an unbalanced diet, smoking, working long hours on a computer, sun damage, genetics, and most importantly due to aging. Puffiness, on the other hand, may occur due to hormonal imbalances in the body, fluid retention, taking a sodium rich diet, alcohol abuse, oversleeping or under sleeping, stress, and pollution.
The market today is flooded with many eye creams, with some proclaiming to be the best for either dark circles, SPF, or puffiness. However, if someone is suffering from these conditions simultaneously, it makes sense to opt for a cream which eliminates them simultaneously.
