Our best excuse for always being late, the biggest preventer of grumpy early mornings and our most loyal morning commute companion: coffee. We can’t get enough of it. Not only are we drinking it, but we’re wearing it, too. Could eye creams containing caffeine really be as effective on our faces as it is in our Starbucks to-go cup? We say, yes! While we don’t advise you to completely give up your venti latte for a venti eye cream (we still love to drink our coffee), we do recommend adding it to your daily skin regimen. On National Coffee Day, prepare to amp up your caffeine addiction after reading the benefits of caffeine eye creams.

The Eye Cream Necessity

You may want to sit down for this. The skin around the eyes is 10 times thinner than the skin on your face, and it ages 36 percent faster than the rest of your skin! This high-maintenance area requires some serious TLC, which means it requires creams specifically designed for it. Getting an eye cream with caffeine can do 6 a.m. wakeup call miracles, while tending to the basic needs of the delicate skin around the eye area.

What It Does

An early morning necessity, eye creams with caffeine notably ease the appearance of dark circles, reduce puffiness and brighten the eye area. According to the Derm Review, “An eye cream with caffeine is more effective at treating these symptoms than regular eye cream moisturizers.”

How It Works

A natural stimulant, the caffeine ingredient constricts the blood vessels around the eye, leading to many benefits. The anti-inflammatory properties of coffee are to thank for fighting our dark circles. They also make the ingredient a great skin repair option for sun-damaged skin. According to Women’s Health, studies show that caffeine helps block the protein ATR, and protects the skin from UV damage. Additionally, the antioxidant is so powerful it can calm reddened, irritated or blotchy skin.

Our Recommendation

We’re currently worshipping the Skinbetter Science Smoothing Daily Treatment Cream EYE. This recharger is the caffeine cocktail of your dreams. The decongesting blend of caffeine and a highly specialized yeast derivative relieve under eye puffiness. At the same time, a neuro-calming peptide works to relax the appearance of crow’s feet almost immediately. It brightens the skin with Vitamin C and locks in moisture for that sensitive eye area.

We also love the Neocutis Micro Eyes Riche Rejuvenating Balm. Especially perfect for mature eyes, this moisturizer plumps and hydrates the skin. Infused with caffeine, it alleviates under-eye puffiness, while the Micro Protein Complex works on crow’s feet, hollowness and crepiness.
