Skip It: Preparation H for Under-Eye Bags
What it is: To clarify, if you’ve got ’roids, get yourself some of this bad boy. But using Prep H for under-eye bags and circles is risky.
How it works: The hemorrhoid-treating ointment is rubbed beneath the eyes, constricting blood vessels and providing a temporary relief from swelling.
Bottom line: Instructions for Preparation H state explicitly to not use near eyes, as getting any in your eyes will cause pain and potential damage.
