How to get rid of puffy eyes in 10 minutes

If massaging in an eye cream every day is a life goal you just won’t reach, take the easy route with Estee Lauder’s innovative Advanced Night Repair technology eye masks.

Coming down from party season, no one can be bothered with lengthy skincare routines to get back their glow and look fresh. 10 minutes to get rid of tired, puffy eyes? We’re in.

In the same way that sheet masks brighten, hydrate and refresh skin, an eye mask is like the mother of all magic wands (and you won’t look like the Phantom of The Opera wearing it, either). Improve the look of crow’s feet, nix dark circles and almost instantly de-puff – there’s no end to the uses for this multi-purpose wonder. And then there’s an eye mask’s ability to plump up parched skin. Did you know the delicate skin under your eyes is 10x thinner than elsewhere on your face, making it a lot drier, too?

If massaging in an eye cream every day is a life goal you won’t reach, try the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask, instead. You only need to apply the crescent-moon-shaped mask once a week to keep your peepers perky. But the benefits don’t end there.

The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask delivers 20x more goodness than the cult serum of the same name – masks are more concentrated. No fewer than nine anti-inflammatory ingredients, including Lady’s Thistle and White Birch, help to soothe tired, puffy eyes while a hefty dose of moisture-rallying hyaluronic acid makes fine lines seem a little shallower for up to eight hours.

Each eye mask comes in a single-dose packette with two sealed chambers, so the formula stays locked into one, while the pads are kept dry in the other. All you need to do is crack open the liquid chamber and release the serum onto the dry pad, then tap on and go. As well as no mess (hurrah!) this stops the pad over-absorbing the serum-like mask and overloading the eye area with too much product, which can make puffiness even worse. It really is that simple.

We like to apply it 10 minutes before bed to allow the potent ingredients to sink in deep and hydrate during the graveyard shift. Or straight out of the shower, only peeling it off before applying make-up for a look that says ‘12 hours sleep’. So even if you haven’t caught up on the sleep you lost over the New Year break, you can still fake it.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask is available now from £10 for 1 pack.
