Well-intentioned New Year’s resolutions aside—swearing off salt-laden foods, skipping that nightly glass of wine, going to bed early—during winter, even the most virtuous wellness warriors still sometimes find that their morning eyes resemble those of Bridget Jones after a bender.

As it turns out, overcoming puffiness is not quite as simple as making a few healthy lifestyle tweaks: Pollution; poor sleep; inadequate makeup removal; and hot, dry indoor air are all among the root causes of the issue, says Hollywood facialist Mila Moursi.

So, too, are heavy eye creams, which can overburden skin at night and lead to swelling the next day. “The skin around the eyes is so thin and fragile, but sometimes people treat that skin like it’s leather,” explains Moursi, who suggests using a light, breathable gel-based formulation in the morning, applied with a gentle massage.

Yet the real “cure,” she continues, is one that’s also an Instagram phenomenon these days: eye masks. Though not intended for everyday use, they offer a “boost” to the under-eye area on especially swollen mornings, Moursi says. The latest wave of products pack a host of de-puffing, fine-line-plumping actives, from caffeine to 24-karat gold. Here, the best of the bunch—stock up now to put your best face forward in the year ahead.
