    Spending long hours looking at the computer screen, catching up on all those Instagram posts, or getting less than eight hours of sleep a night can tire out eyes. Which is why many women are always on the lookout for that elusive eye cream that does it all. Look out for those that contain vitamins C and E and hyaluronic acid as they improve circulation, plump up the skin and increase skin elasticity so dark circles are less visible. When the skin around the eye area is thicker and not as fragile, that serves as a good base for concealers—which are a staple in every woman’s kit because they erase evidence of fatigue in one sweep.
