The simple trick to getting rid of dark circles and dull skin in just 20 minutes


Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Soothing Cornflower, $24, available at Sephora.

Getting rid of dark circles and under-eye puffiness may seem like a feat. And when thousands of products claim to be the Holy Grail of skincare masks, it's even more impossible sifting through what each one has to offer.

So when you're on the hunt, there's one thing you should always be on the lookout for: natural ingredients that are tried and true. Cornflower is one of them.

Cornflower is originally farmed in the southwest of France and is harvested during full blossom. By extracting cornflower water, one can tap into the plant's natural healing properties, most notably soothing, softening, and anti-inflammatory ones. Since the extracted floral water is pure, it works for even the most sensitive of eyes and face.

That being said, an easy way to fight off dull or dark under-eyes is by finding a mask that harnesses the power of cornflower. Our top pick for just this is Klorane's Smoothing and Relaxing Patches, complete with Soothing Cornflower extract. By putting the patches directly under the eye and letting it sit for 20 minutes, your skin will be hydrated, brightened, and slowly but surely, the look of fine lines will go away. If you're looking for a more intensive treatment, you can just the patches for 7 days to see more long-term results.

Not too bad for $24, right?
