Many people suffer from puffiness under their eyes when they awake, but there are numerous eye creams, gels and serums that contain ingredients that will help reduce that tired look if you use them regularly.

The thin skin under the eyes is the most delicate, fragile type on your face, and your regular moisturiser is too potent for this area. But you also have to treat the cause of the puffiness, which could be a result of fluid trapped in capillaries under the eyes or allergies and sinus infection.
Eyeliss is an active ingredient in many effective eye creams. It targets the three main causes of puffy eyes: drainage, capillary fragility and loose skin. Made by Croda, Eyeliss has been proven to reduce puffiness under the eyes and firm skin. You can find Eyeliss in DermaRadiant Ageless Eyes and Elizabeth Arden Perfect Plump Eye Moisture Cream, both of which cost about £32.
This additive is also found in the most effective eye creams. When you experience puffiness around your eyes it generally includes dark circles. Haloxyl diminishes the appearance of dark circles by decreasing their intensity by as much as 45 per cent, according the makers of Haloxyl, Sederma, a branch of Croda USA. Haloxyl is an active ingredient in Peter Thomas Roth Eye Overhaul and Kaplan MD Intensive Eye Cream. Eye creams containing Haloxyl typically cost £32 and up.
Hyaluronic acid is found in skin cells and helps retain moisture, elastin and collagen in the skin. Eye creams containing this ingredient can firm puffy skin and restore elasticity to the fragile under-eye area. Popular versions include Lancôme High Résolution Eye Refill and Prescriptives Intensive Rebuilding Eye Cream. They are each priced at around £39.
Eye Gel, Eye Serum or Eye Cream
All of these choices may seem confusing, but they all offer and deliver similar results. Serums and gels work more on a cellular level and may feel more firming, while creams excel at moisturising. Accordingly, you should choose the product that addresses your particular need.
Men are also concerned about their appearance. Consequently, eye creams designed and packaged for men are being added to most cosmetic lines. If you work outside or spend a lot of time there you should consider using one. A fairly recent addition to an already great men's skin care line is Skin Supplies for Men Age Defense for Eyes by Clinique.
Use eye cream twice a day, and make sure any products you use contain some sort of sun protection. In addition, consistency is the key to the success of any skin care program, as you will see the best results if you stick with your product and follow the manufacturer's directions. Also, look for the key ingredients in any product you choose.
