Okay, I know what you're thinking: "Eye creams are hella expensive, and do I ACTUALLY need it?" And the answer is yes and no. The most important thing to understand about all the elaborate Asian skincare regimes you've read about is that they're designed with preventative care in mind. So, instead of trying to treat sun-damaged, dehydrated, or otherwise neglected skin with harsh, chemicals-filled products, Asian skincare products seek to protect, hydrate, and strengthen your skin before it's damaged. (It's the same philosophy that applies to diet — invest your time in healthy, homecooked meals instead of fast food NOW and your body will thank you in the long run.) So even if you don't have wrinkles, under-eye bags, or red spots now — and if you have any room in your budget — show your eyes some love now so you won't have to splurge on expensive "repair serums" later.
