Truth be told, “You look tired,” is one of the worst comments one can receive. We all know it’s really code for you look like s**t . Sure, you may have had the most epic night, but the last thing you want is it showing on your face the next morning. So the next time your party plans turn into an all-nighter, recover with a set of under-eye masks to de-puff those telling dark circles, quench your dehydrated skin, and, frankly, bring you back to life. They’ll be your best alibi. (Pro Tip: For an extra cooling and de-puffing effect, store your eye patches in the fridge).
