List of Best Under Eye Creams in India
By Contributor: Monica
Skin around the eyes is the most delicate one and little bit of carelessness can result into irreversible damage to the eye area. I can say so with personal experience because I was never careful about this in my teenage and used everything from harsh towels to dupattas etc at my under-eye. Result: am just 24 but have 2 lines under my eyes and no matter howsoever careful I am now, the damage is already done.
What I feel about the under eye lines and bags is that you can definitely prevent them from appearing or increasing with time by using a good moisturizing under eye cream but once they have appeared, you cannot get rid of them unless you go for botox etc. As far as under eye dark circles are concerned, they can definitely be treated with topical creams available in market. Most girls think that the face moisturizer alone can help in keeping the eye area healthy but NO as I said before that the eye area is very delicate therefore, we should use only the creams/gels especially formulated for under eye.
There is a plethora of under eye moisturizers available in Indian market in both cream and gel form. Here I am compiling the top 10 of them in no specific order along with mini reviews and price tags.
