Fellas, they say work hard, play hard, but they don’t explain that not getting proper rest can affect your skin. Your face is the first thing people notice—so make sure you’re putting your best face forward by combating under-eye puffiness, dark circles or fine lines.
Under-eye masks or patches are the perfect tools for a more refreshed and wide-awake look. The soothing gels are great for calming and de-puffing your orbital area when you’ve had those crazy late-night benders or worked to the wee hours of the day. They’ll even keep you looking like a superstar for early morning virtual meetings where you have to turn the camera on, especially those you don’t want to attend.
Below, shop these five eye masks to solve your early morning (or late night) under-eye woes.
