Even if you’re not a coffee lover, you can probably appreciate the special power of caffeine. And speaking of caffeine in your skin care routine… The best caffeine-containing eye creams have the same main ingredient as a cup of coffee, specifically aimed at reducing puffiness and fine lines.
Caffeine is a sought-after compound in an eye cream because it targets multiple under-eye concerns simultaneously. Caffeine is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictor ingredient that has many skin benefits. In addition to reducing puffiness and discoloration, eye creams containing caffeine can also increase collagen production, which ultimately helps treat fine lines and fight free radical damage.
To help round out your routine, we’ve put together a list of our favorites of caffeine-containing eye creams.
