More about Eye Creams
Eye creams are products specific to the eye area of the face, which have the primary functions of brightening, wrinkle-reducing, hydrating, and de-puffing, depending on what your specific needs are. For baggy eyes and puffiness, ingredients like caffeine, green tea extract, and vitamins C and E are key, specifically for decreasing swelling. For dark circles, keep your eye out for vitamin K-1, peptides, and arnica for best results. Look to hyaluronic acid, collagen, retinol, and other vitamins and natural ingredients as your best bet to combat wrinkles. An important thing to note about eye creams is that they don’t present immediate results; they often deliver more ongoing, gradual results and work with your skin over time as a preventative measure to keep the skin elastic, smooth, and firm. Eye creams, as is the case with most other skincare products, should also be used at least once daily, but ideally as part of both your AM and PM routines. Some might say that eye creams are unnecessary and that the other products in their routine, like moisturizers, serums, and oils, will work just as effectively in that region. However, this is certainly not the case. Due to the thin nature of the skin around the eyes, as well as the lack of oil glands within the skin in that area, many products suitable for the rest of the skin on our faces not only will not be less effective than on the rest of your skin, but may in fact increase puffiness. Using too much eye cream at once can also attribute to some similar issues. That said, it’s important to use light formulas, exfoliate under the eyes prior to cream application to eliminate any dead cells, and check the ingredient list for the elements specific to your needs that will make your eyes look their best.
