Tired, puffy eyes, crow’s feet and dark circles, there’s nothing like that little lot to add ten years to your face!
An eye cream won’t get rid of suitcases under your eyes or banish big black circles, but they can smooth fine lines, boost hydration and tighten skin. Ideally choose a super-light formula or gel which has Vitamin A in the form of retinol, plus Vitamins C & E too. I like ones with green tea and Co-enzyme Q10 too.
My favourites are La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Anti Dark Circles Eye Cream. It costs £25.50 (boots.com) and is enriched with light-reflecting pigments to conceal dark shadows.
You can also improve the quality of your sleep and give your skin a boost at the same time with Amly Beauty Sleep Face Mist. Spritz over skin and let the soothing valerian root calm your mind while vitamins C and A tackle signs of ageing. £52. Amlybotanical.com
Crow’s feet can be lessened by judicious use of Botox. Nothing heavy-handed, but a light sprinkling of this great muscle-relaxant around the eye area can make all the difference. Discuss exactly what you want with a good cosmetic doctor who has expertise and a delicate touch. Prices start at £199
