What Can Eye Gels Do For Your Skin?

Under-eye patches, AKA under-eye masks or under-eye gels, are a popular self-care skincare product designed specifically to target the delicate skin around the eyes. These patches are infused with various active ingredients and are shaped to fit the contour of the under-eye area. When applied, they offer a range of benefits that can help improve the appearance and condition of the skin.

Hydration and Moisturization: Under-eye patches are typically formulated with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or aloe vera, which work to deliver intense moisture to the under-eye area. This helps to plump and hydrate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and preventing the skin from looking dull and tired.

Reducing Puffiness and Dark Circles: Some under-eye patches contain ingredients such as caffeine or cloudberry extract, which have soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. These components can help reduce puffiness and diminish the appearance of dark circles, leaving the under-eye area looking refreshed and revitalized.

Cooling and Soothing: Many under-eye patches are designed with a cooling sensation upon application. This can help to calm and soothe the skin around the eyes, particularly after a long day or a lack of sleep.

Improving Elasticity and Firmness: Certain under-eye patches contain collagen or peptides, which support the skin's natural elasticity and firmness. Regular use of these patches can lead to a more toned and supple under-eye area.

Enhancing Absorption of Active Ingredients: The unique delivery system of under-eye Patchology patches allows for better penetration and absorption of the active ingredients into the skin. This ensures that the beneficial components effectively target the concerns specific to the under-eye area.

Patchology Eye Gels For Dark Circles and Puffiness


Say Goodbye to Dark Circles:

The combination of active ingredients, such as caffeine and Hyaluronic Acid, in Patchology's Rejuvenating under-eye patches targets those stubborn dark circles. Caffeine helps constrict blood vessels, reducing the appearance of dark circles caused by poor circulation. Hyaluronic Acid and peptides deliver intense moisture and promote collagen production, leaving your skin visibly smoother and more youthful.

What do under-eye patches actually do? 

Under-eye patches are a popular self-care product that can help to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines around the eyes. They work by delivering a concentrated dose of beneficial ingredients to the delicate skin under the eyes. The patches are made of a hydrogel material that is designed to adhere to the skin and deliver the ingredients deep into the delicate under-eye skin.

  • Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that helps to keep the skin hydrated. This can help to plump up the skin under the eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Niacinamide: Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that has brightening and anti-inflammatory properties. This can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and improve the overall appearance of the skin under the eyes.
  • Peptides: Peptides are small proteins that can help to boost collagen production and improve the elasticity of the skin. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
