Eye cream: an essential part of skin care

source: canva.com

Eye cream is just as important as regular face moisturizer. Around the eyes, the skin is soft and thinner by about 10-40% than on the rest of the face, and it deserves a product developed specifically for this area.

Are eye creams really necessary?

Because the skin is so thin, this is an area for which a common cream can mean irritation, and it is also one of the places where the first wrinkles and fine lines appear on the face. In addition, there are fewer sebaceous glands in the eye area than, for example, in the T-zone. This means that this area really needs to be hydrated enough.

How to apply eye cream correctly?

Always apply eye cream on clean and cleansed skin. Gently tap or perform only a light massage. Don’t forget the area under the eyebrows. Avoid the moving eyelid and the area around the lash line. If the cream gets into your eyes, you will only irritate them, and in addition, if applied incorrectly in the evening, you run the risk of your eyelids being irritated and swollen after sleep.

What should an eye cream contain?

Given that there is a wide range of ingredients, Focus on the ones your skin needs. Are you bothered by dark circles, fine lines, puffiness or eye cream you use as a prevention and is part of your skin routine?

Focus on:

1. Retinol

Improves skin texture, smoothes wrinkles and hides the skin’s purple undertone.

2. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a champion for brightening the skin and reducing pigmentation and dark circles. It works in many ways, firstly it can increase collagen production (for thicker, juicier and more supple skin), secondly, a strong antioxidant can help neutralize the damage caused by UV radiation (which can cause pigmentation under the eyes).

3. Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is essential in hydrating tired eyes, which is especially important given how much time we spend on the phone or working on the computer today.

4. Ceramidy

Ceramides smooth the skin and are the building blocks of healthy skin, help retain moisture and strengthen the skin barrier, so they can lock all the necessary ingredients in the skin.

5. Kofein

When applied to the skin, it can contract the blood vessels under the eyes, which can lead to a reduction in swelling.
