The Best Eye Creams Men Their 20s
By Khanak Mehta
So you’ve been pulling all-nighters lately, for big presentations during the work week and football matches that go on till the next day on your weekends. While you may have your trusty coffee cup by your side helping you out here, your under-eyes might just need a little more than that. Puffiness and dry under-eyes are common side effects of all these late nights, and if you're beginning to notice them in the mirror every morning, it’s time to invest in an eye cream.
It’s usually thought that eye creams are a staple for those in their 40s and 50s – but in reality, they do much more than just help reverse the signs of ageing. Regularly applying an eye cream even in your 20s can help keep the area hydrated, reduce puffiness, and even lay the groundwork for delaying the early signs of ageing. We know it can be confusing to figure out which eye cream is right for you – but this is where we come in. Here are some of our top picks to help you hide the evidence with ease.

Want an eye cream that does double duty? This pick from doesn’t just brighten and de-puff, but also has an in-built electric massager that gives your under-eye area some extra TLC. Perfect for late nights, and even better for when you’ve had one too many drinks at dinner the night before and are *seriously* regretting it now.
