Tips from THE INKEY LIST:
Dark circles and puffiness can be caused by a number of factors. If dark circles are due to genetics, caused by pigmentation underneath the eye, or puffiness under the eye caused by fat deposits, unfortunately, caffeine serum is unlikely to help.
Caffeine is, however, a fantastic way to reduce puffiness and dark circles caused by a number of lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep, traveling, diet and high salt intake amongst others.
As an antioxidant, it also has preventative properties and can protect the eye area from free radicals and environmental stress. Ensuring you are always wearing sunscreen will also help.
For an extra soothing effect, a tip would be to keep your caffeine in the refrigerator and massage gently into the under-eye area to stimulate circulation.
