The skin around the eyes is different from the skin elsewhere on the face. Softer and thicker, the skin around is also more densely packed with blood vessels in order to accommodate the eyes’ need for nourishment and fluids. When you’re tired, unwell, or your eyes are irritated from allergies, for example, the blood vessels in your eyes dilate, filling with more blood. This causes the dark circles or ‘bags’ familiar to most of us. Luckily, a range of eye creams and serums have been designed by male skincare and grooming brands to combat these symptoms. Check out our list of the best eye creams for men.
