The sensitive and delicate skin under your eyes is also thinner and more prone to issues such as puffiness and wrinkles than much of the rest of your skin. As you age, these skin differences can become a lot more noticeable and for some, become a cause of frustration. Dark circles, bags and wrinkles deter from what can otherwise be a bright and youthful face and complexion. So is it necessary to to have an eye cream in your daily skincare regime?
Eye cream is not just a fancy mini-moisturiser; the ingredients and the way eye creams are formulated help to focus on the very particular problems associated with aging and irritated skin around the eyes. They are made with your delicate eye area in mind, while some ingredients that are found in your regular facial moisturiser can sting and irritate your sensitive skin.
Using eye creams that boost collagen production through Vitamin C as well as hyaluronic acids and retinoids will help to hydrate and improve skin elasticity. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) helps to brighten skin and lighten age spots. Caffeine is also known to help reduce puffiness and dark circles in the contours of your eyes. Check out Brickell’s Restoring Eye Balm and The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 5% for high end, eye focused products that address these delicate skin issues. Remember, the eyes speak volumes. Keep them vibrant!
