3 Reasons why you should be using an EYE CREAM.
When you already have a moisturizer for your face, you can feel a little reluctant to use an eye cream too. But the delicate skin around your eyes deserves a little extra TLC.
Not all skin is created equal. Because the skin around the eyes is thinner, and because of all the tiny muscles in the area, it’s more sensitive and prone to a variety of issues, like puffiness, discolouration, and fine lines and wrinkles. Plus there are minimal oil glands around the eyes to help keep the skin naturally hydrated, so finding the right eye cream can help ward off numerous complexion concerns.
For puffiness: Under eye puffiness comes from fluid build up that causes swelling in the tissues around your eyes. This can come from allergies and sinuses, but it can also be a result of sleep deprivation, diet, alcohol, and just plain aging.
For dark circles: Discolouration around the eyes can be a result of various factors, including heredity, stress, smoking, sun exposure, pigmentation, and shadows from hollowing out of your eyes. Things like vitamins C and K, kojic acid, and liquorice can help combat skin discolouration, while ingredients like peptides can help pump up the skin to get rid of shadows. You should also look for light reflecting ingredients to give you an instant brightening effect.
For fine lines: Thinner skin mixed with constant muscle action(winking, blinking, even smiling) can lead to show sings of aging faster than the rest of your face. Make sure you look for collagen-building ingredients, such as retinol, to help boost thinning skin and smooth out fine lines.
Tips & Tricks
- Try storing your eye cream in the refrigerator. The extra shot of coolness will soothe tired eyes and help puffiness.
- Using eye cream under your makeup can help concealer to be applied more smoothly and prevent it from building up in fine lines.
- Since the eye area is so sensitive, the best eye creams will be fragrance free.
