When the temperatures dip and skin starts to dry up, the eye area is always the first to show it. Fortunately, a host of new high-tech, targeted formulas are specifically designed to defend delicate orbital skin against winter’s harsh climate. The wide-awake glow they impart—whether or not you’ve had a good night’s sleep—is the icing on the cake.
Among the most hardworking new offerings this season is Healgel’s eye gel, formulated with two types of hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and arnica to reduce inflammation and puffiness. Another cold-weather favorite is La Prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Eye Cream, formulated with plants harvested from the Swiss Alps, where they withstand severe altitude and icy winds. Looking to banish dark circles and moisturize? Reach for Shiseido’s Glow Revival Eye Treatment, whose unique angled applicator helps refine skin’s texture while also providing a punch of vitamin C to fight dullness. Here are our favorite eye creams to stock up on now—and reapply all winter long.
