We all spend a good portion of our lives on social media and it’s likely you’ve become a lot more aware of your reflection at any given time of the day. One thing that can be a major bummer when you’re trying to catch your best angle: dark circles under the eyes.
Not to worry— we have more than one solution for tired eyes. Read on to learn more about what causes those dark rings around the eyes and find your best eye cream for dark circles from Lancôme.
The #1 Reason Your Eyes Look Tired
A full night of sleep is becoming an increasingly rare event for all of us, whether it’s because there’s a can’t-miss party, staying up for another episode of a show you’re binge watching on Netflix, or a late date. Since the skin around our eyes is the thinnest on your face, changes can happen as early as your 20s and 30s—skin loses luminosity, bounce, and moisture, and the overall effect can make you look like you need a nap. The trick to keeping eyes fresh and youthful: start treating and hydrating them early with one of our best eye creams for dark circles.
Pick Your Formula: The 3 Lancôme Best Eye Creams for Dark Circles
1. The Relaxing “Me Time” Ritual
Using the regenerating power of the precious Lancôme rose extract, Absolue Revitalizing Eye Cream is all about nourishing, hydrating, and treating yourself to a sensory experience. The indulgent, anti-aging eye cream targets the eye contours for a look that is rested, rejuvenated, and visibly brighter. With each use the under eye area feels intensely moisturized, softer and smoother. In addition to Grand Rose Extracts the formula also contains a blend of essential oils (Apricot, Passionfruit, Rice Bran) and rich Shea Butter for a luxuriously moisturizing effect.
2. The Innovative Pick that Makes You Look Immediately Rested
Looking for more youthful, luminous, glowing skin around your eyes? Our moisturizing, Advanced Génifique Eye Cream has a creamy texture, the same key star ingredients of bifidus prebiotic, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin Cg and it instantly smooths fine lines and targets wrinkles & dark circles over time for visibly brighter eyes. It’s also perfect for helping to hydrate dry under eyes.
For an additional boost of brightness and depuffing action – our Advanced Génifique Eye Light Pearl is a lightweight eye serum that’s infused with the same bifidus prebiotic extract that make Advanced Génifique, our most iconic and best face serum. It layers beautifully with our eye cream and features a unique application. The cooling, de-puffing, pearl-shaped applicator can be used to massage in the formula with tiny circular motions and helps to de-puffs bags under eyes. Because it is a serum, not a cream, it’s also ideal for morning use before you apply makeup or for those who prefer a thinner, watery texture around their eyes.
3. The Multitasking, Photo-Ready Favorite Eye Cream
Whilst hydration, brightening, and depuffing are three very important factors of an eye cream – another consideration is wrinkles and fine lines our Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Eye Cream is our best eye cream for visibly lifting and firming skin under the eyes. The formula is enriched with ingredients including caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter. Enriched with Lancôme's Multi-Tension technology enriched with Lancôme's Multi-Tension technology. It is the ultimate lifting effect for younger-looking skin and a flawless complexion as it helps to visibly lift, firm, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst also helping to reduce the look of dark circles.

Skin 101: The 3 Other Factors Affecting Your Dark Circles Under Eyes
Exhaustion is a literal drag when it comes to our eyes. But if you assume dark circles are exclusively due to sleep deprivation, think again. There are a host of reasons for the dark circles around eyes—aside from skipping out on your Lancôme best eye cream for dark circles. Read up on the less-talked-about factors that could be the causes of bags under your eyes.
1. Although lack of sleep is the usual culprit for dark rings under eyes, oversleeping can cause them too. Consider this your official warning to stop hitting the snooze button!
2. Your genes can play a role in whether you get dark circles. For example, if you inherited your grandmother’s deep-set eyes, there is a good chance you are more prone to dark under eyes.
3. Age amplifies the appearance of dark circles around eyes due to the loss of fat and collagen in skin surrounding the eye area. Because the skin in the eye area is the thinnest, blood vessels are more exposed, creating a darker shadow.
