Gretchen Rossi has had a real eye-opener. "I'm a big believer in doing any preventative measures, so I regularly use a good under eye treatment to help prevent dark circles and wrinkles," the Real Housewives of Orange County star blogs. "Right now I'm trying out Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge Rescue & Protect Eye Balm, which claims to improve puffiness and dark circles, firm skin and fade fine lines - and so far so good!"

G continues lobbying for her magic eraser, "The formula is light yet I feel hydrated. And when I'm up working late, it soothes and perks up my tired eyes for morning meetings."

To keep yourself out of the dark, the beauty enthusiast recommends logging seven to eight hours of dreamtime each night, reducing stress, and cutting back on smoking as well as excessive alcohol consumption. "Watch your salt intake. Salt can increase fluid retention and make your eyes puffy," Rocco and Vito's mama warns. "For allergies, use an antihistamine or nasal decongestant as allergies can aggravate puffy eyelids and can cause irritation around the eyes. And as usually, protect your skin and use SPF!"
