The delicate skin around the eyes is often the first part of the face to show visible signs of aging (as well as fatigue), so this area deserves a dedicated skincare regimen. Like the rest of the face, the eye area needs environmental protection and ingredients designed to target specific concerns—in addition to an effective color-coverage product for times when you want to look even brighter-eyed and refreshed. Here is a selection of eye-care and concealer must-haves that can help you put your best eyes and face forward.

SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel

Good for: Environmental protection, puffiness, dark circles and signs of fatigue at any ageDaily antioxidant protection is a must and this unique serum-gel formula is designed specifically for delicate skin around the eyes. Featuring L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), phloretin and ferulic acid that work synergistically to neutralize free-radicals generated by UV rays, infrared radiation (IR-A) and ozone pollution, this serum also addresses visible signs of aging and combats signs of fatigue for a refreshed look.

SkinCeuticals Eye Cream

Good for: Puffiness, sagging skin, dark circles, loss of firmness and early signs of agingImproving the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and first signs of aging like mild skin sagging can be as easy as using this hydrating eye cream daily. Suitable for normal, dry and oily skin, its potent ingredients include the elasticity-improving botanical Centella asiatica, ectoin to help shield skin from environmental stress and peptides to combat the look of puffiness, sagging and dark circles.

SkinCeuticals Eye Balm

Good for: Crow’s feet and under-eye bags in dry or aging skinFor skin in need of extra hydration, this rich, creamy balm is formulated with gentle yet effective plant-based ingredients. Soy isoflavones, vitamin E and silymarin derived from milk thistle seeds work together to improve the appearance of age-related changes in dry and mature skin, including moisture loss, skin laxity, puffiness, and crow’s feet.

A.G.E. Eye Complex

Good for: Crow’s feet, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness in aging skinThis advanced eye-care formula was created to fight dark circles and puffiness while helping to off-set the effects of glycation, a natural process that contributes to visible skin aging such as crow’s feet and wrinkles. Its combination of proxylane, blueberry extract, antioxidants and peptides are clinically proven to provide significant improvement in the look of puffiness, dark circles and skin elasticity—while optical diffusers instantly boost radiance to minimize visible signs of fatigue.

SkinCeuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50

Good for: Sun protection that’s gentle on the eyesNo skincare routine is complete without sun protection, and the eyes require a special formula that won’t irritate delicate skin or run into the eyes. This advanced 100%-mineral eye-area sunscreen provides broad-spectrum SPF 50 to shield skin from UVA and UVB rays, along with nourishing ceramides and a universal tint that helps even out skin tone and create an optimal canvas for makeup application.

Dermablend Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer

Skincare is essential for maintaining the eyes’ youthful appearance, but concealer plays a major role in putting your best face forward. This new hydrating concealer works wonders for camouflaging dark under-eye circles and delivers all-day hydration with complete coverage thanks to high-performance pigments that stay put for up to 24 hours. Available in 16 shades and featuring an extra-large applicator, this breathable, non-comedogenic, allergy- and dermatologist-tested, cruelty-free formula provides easy, full coverage in just one coat.
