King said Wrinkles Schminkles eye pads are shown to help soften wrinkles and lines under and around the eyes. “These medical-grade silicone pads keep the skin taut so it can’t crease or wrinkles while locking in moisture,” she said. They can also be used up to 30 times each, making the $1 cost per use practical. According to the brand, the hypoallergenic and cruelty-free eye masks can also be used to target stretch marks and scarring.

Tai Young, a celebrity makeup artist and founder of Tai Young Beauty, called these eye patches from Peter Thomas Roth her “absolute favorite.” It features hyaluronic acid, while caffeine helps depuff and marshmallow extract helps soften your skin. “I keep them in a mini-fridge at my makeup station and my actors on “Grey’s Anatomy” love them, even the guys,” she said. It’s not necessary to store your eye patches in a fridge, but the cold temperature can enhance your user-experience because it leaves behind a refreshing, cooling sensation and can help further reduce puffiness.

“These gel patches are soothing to the under-eye area and contain retinol and peptides so they will help target fine lines and wrinkles, and help to stimulate collagen,” said Celeste Rodrigues, esthetician and owner of Celeste Rodrigues Skincare in Beverly Hills, California. Collagen is a protein that keeps your skin looking plump and youthful. There’s also squalane, which helps soften and hydrate your skin, and offer protection from free radicals, or particles that damage healthy skin cells. Cedrus atlantica bark extract brightens and cucumber extract calms inflammation and puffiness. Rodrigues added these “amazing” eye patches have a cooling effect and also helps to “bring down puffiness, especially before makeup application.”

Meredith Baraf, a celebrity makeup artist, said she actually regularly uses several eye masks — 111Skin, Estée Lauder and Wander Beauty among them —, and noted: “All of them successfully hydrate, depuff and brighten the under-eye area using skin-loving, nourishing ingredients.” Another of her favorites is this travel-friendly option from Tatcha, a Japanese skin care line. Each order includes 10 individually-packed sheets that are compact enough to keep in your jacket pocket, slide into your purse or pop into your carry-on bag — in fact, make use of your (socially distant and otherwise safe) layover and pop on this eye mask while lounging on your next flight.
