HOW TO TAKE CARE OF UNDER EYE SKIN

Published June 23, 2022

The eye contour, which is the name for the skin around your eyes, is one of the most delicate areas on our face and requires special care. This makes it more prone to external aggressors, such as UV rays, pollution, and stress. As you age, the skin around your eyes becomes thinner and loses elasticity which can lead to wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. 

To maintain healthy looking skin around the eye area, it’s important to use a special eye cream that is designed specifically for this area of the face. An eye cream is essential for making sure that this special area receives all the nourishment, hydration, and protection that it needs. In this article, we'll explore some key reasons why you should include an eye cream in your regular beauty regimen and how to choose the best eye cream for your skin type. Read on to learn more!

WHY USE AN EYE CREAM?

Investing in a quality eye cream is essential if we want our eyes to receive all the nourishment, hydration, and protection that they need! Not only does it help reduce puffiness and wrinkles around your eyes, but also it helps protect the eye contour area from environmental pollutants while brightening dark circles over time! 

REDUCE PUFFINESS 

The first reason why you should consider using an eye cream is that it helps reduce puffiness around your eyes. Puffiness can be caused by lack of sleep or even allergies and can make us look tired. An eye cream can help reduce puffiness by providing extra hydration and nourishment to this area of the face. 

FIGHT WRINKLES AND CROW’S FEET 

Decreased collagen production aids in the formation of wrinkles as you age. Wrinkles tend to be more prominent, or appear earlier, in the skin around your eyes due to the constant movement of your eyes - you blink more than 10,000 times a day! You constantly use the muscles around the eyes, which moves the skin more than most areas on your face. An eye cream will help minimize existing wrinkles and help prevent new wrinkles from forming. 

PROTECT THE DELICATE EYE AREA

Another important benefit of using an eye cream is that it helps protect the skin from environmental pollutants. Pollutants such as smoke and dust can cause inflammation in this delicate area of the face which leads to premature aging. An eye cream can help provide a protective layer against these environmental pollutants and prevent premature aging. 

LIGHTEN DARK CIRCLES 

Finally, an eye cream can help brighten dark circles around your eyes. Dark circles are caused by dehydration or genetics, but can also be exacerbated by lack of sleep or too much sun exposure. An effective eye cream will contain vitamins and antioxidants, which will help brighten dark circles over time and make you look more awake and alert! 

WHEN SHOULD YOU START USING AN EYE CREAM?

It’s never too early or too late to start using an eye cream! If you are in your twenties or thirties, you should think about starting to incorporate an eye cream into your daily skincare routine in order to prevent signs of premature aging. For those in their forties or older, incorporating an eye cream into your skincare routine will help minimize existing signs of aging such as wrinkles and dark circles.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST EYE CREAM FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE

Now that you know why you should use an eye cream, let’s talk about how to choose the best one for your skin type. If you have dry skin, look for an eye cream with hyaluronic acid, which will help draw moisture into the skin while also providing anti-aging benefits such as smoothing out fine lines. If you have oily skin, opt for a lightweight formula without heavy oils which could clog pores in this sensitive area of your face. Whatever your skin type may be, it’s important to read labels carefully before making a purchase so that you know exactly what ingredients are included in each product.
