When you have puffy eyes, under-eye bags, dark circles and fine lines, regular creams seem ineffective. We asked Dr Shruti Kulkarni, a dermatologist, to tell us if we should consider under eye creams and why. Benefits: The skin under your eyes is extremely sensitive. Chances of wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines are very high. Eye creams help to nourish the skin, keep it moisturised and prevent dullness. They help fight the puffiness every morning and brighten eyes. They also soften fine lines and make the skin under your eyes look youthful.
