As a rule, we think cucumbers belong in salads (or cocktails). But there’s a real, scientific reason why bleary-eyed generations have turned to the green gourd. This cucumber-scented eye cream harnesses the vegetable’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling and irritation—so you can at least pretend you’ve gotten eight hours of shuteye instead of binge watching Orange is the New Black.
How it Works
Vitamin C tackles fine lines and wrinkles, while green tea is loaded with antioxidants that protect skin against free radical damage. Peptides and coenzyme Q10 boost collagen and elastin production, while grape, apple, strawberry, and kiwi extracts are the supporting cast to cucumber’s de-puffing abilities.
How to Use
Dab a small amount to the delicate skin beneath your eye. Using your ring finger, gently massage into skin, starting from the inner corner of the eye and working outward.
