Aveda's tourmaline-charged eye cream is specially formulated to calm puffiness and reduce dark circles under the eyes. Lime and organic petitgrain essential oils combine with tourmaline, a naturally energizing mineral, in a silky formula that dries matte — not shiny, $30, from Paris Parker (4900 Prytania St., 891-8874; Canal Place, 333 Canal St., 568-1124; Lakeside Shopping Center, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 846-5256; 4900 Hwy. 22, Mandeville, 985-845-4404).
Ask your crow's feet to take a back seat. Skin Ceuticals eye gel stimulates collagen synthesis and offers protection from environmental damage. A special patented vitamin C technology delivers a therapeutic antioxidant treatment to the skin, $45.95 from Earthsavers (5501 Magazine St., 899-8555; 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 835-0225; 3414 US Hwy. 190, Mandeville, 985-674-1133).
Beauty tip: When choosing eyewear, always opt for plastic over metal frames. Metal can attract and reflect UV rays onto your skin, causing photo-aging and hyper-pigmentation. Go for a plastic pair — like this Swarovski crystal-embedded design by Carolina Herrera. The ample frames give you maximum coverage, and the lenses offer 100 percent UV protection, $375, from St. Charles Vision (8040 St. Charles Ave., 866-6311; 138 Carondelet St., 522-8026; 3200 Severn Ave., Metairie, 887-2020); St. Charles Vision Outlet (837 S. Clearview Pkwy., Jefferson, 733-0406; 817 W. Esplanade Ave., Kenner, 712-3551; 1844 N. Causeway Blvd., Northlake Shopping Center, Mandeville, 985-626-8103; 200 SW Railroad Ave., Hammond Square Mall, Hammond, 985-542-9410; 3909 Lapalco Blvd., Harvey, 328-9733;
