They’re prone to dryness, puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. As the years tick on, an effective eye cream is a vital part of your daily skincare regime.

1. Reduce Your Salt Intake
Puffy eyes are actually a form of edema, or water retention, that shows up under the eyes and that can be caused by a lot of different things. And sodium overload is one of the most common causes. Celebrity make-up artists recommend no salty foods the day before a shoot – and to sleep on an extra pillow to avoid fluid retention build-up. Sweeteners like aspartame and saccharin have been implicated in some studies as potentially causing fluid retention. If you regularly have puffy eyes, try cutting back on diet soda drinks and see if it helps.
