Dark circles around the eyes can spoil the beauty of your face, making you look tired, mean, and older than your age. For many people, the answer to this problem is application of an effective eye cream that is specially formulated to help you get rid of dark circles and puffiness. There are many eye creams available in the market, and you need to be very careful while selecting one for yourself. Do not use any cream that is made for normal skin and avoid any eye cream with harsh ingredients that may irritate the sensitive skin around your eyes. Skin around the eyes is thinner and much more delicate than the skin of the face. Make sure that the chosen product is especially formulated for delicate skin.
