Whether you’ve spent the day staring at a screen, just gotten off a red-eye, indulged in too many glass of wine and french fries the night before or are just plain exhausted, the first place the effects show up is often around the eyes. “The skin around your eyes is five times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face,” says aesthetician Alexandra Accardo, founder of Alexandra Accardo Studio. “That’s why signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, occur there first.”

As its name suggests, Patchology knows a thing or two about under-eye patches, and the brand carries some great options. Morgan Rackley, an Atlanta-based aesthetician and founder of Luminous Skin Atlanta especially loves the FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels for targeting tired eyes. The formulation contains a strong dose of caffeine to improve circulation and reduce puffiness, and hydrolyzed collagen to pump hydration and elasticity. “I like to use brightening or de-puffing eye patches in the morning,” she says. “Concealer looks better, and eyes look more awake.”
Other bonuses: The hydrogel patches don’t slip and slide, a common complaint with eye masks, ensuring actives are delivered to the needed area. And the affordable cost for these ingredient-packed patches makes using them consistently more feasible. Need more convincing? In a 100-person study conducted by the brand, 100% of participants reported their eyes appeared revitalized after just one use, and 97% said their eye area looked less puffy.
