5 Reasons Why You Need an Eye Cream
Did you know the skin around your eyes is much thinner than the rest of the face and is often where the first signs of ageing often appear? While applying an eye cream may seem like an unnecessary additional step, having a different product for the eye area is essential for protecting the delicate skin around the eyes.
This blog will cover everything you need to know about eye creams and why you should use them for maximum results.
First, let’s break down the reasons why you need an eye cream to treat the eye area:
- It's thinner:
The eye area is naturally much more delicate than the rest of the face.
- It’s drier:
There are no oil glands in the eye area, making the eye area more prone to dryness.
- It's the first area to show signs of ageing:
Thanks to facial expressions, squinting and even blinking (which we do as often as 28,000 times per day!) - the eye area is often under stress.
Eye creams tend to have a thicker consistency to deliver goodness to the eye area. They're formulated with more targeted ingredients than ordinary facial moisturisers because they are aimed at the problems we see around the eyes.
The Best Eye Cream Ingredients for Your Skin
Here are some key ingredients to look out for…
Antioxidants like vitamin C are excellent ingredients for helping fade discolouration, brightening your skin and reducing the appearance of tired, puffy eyes.
Caffeine can offer quick relief to dark circles and puffiness since it helps to constrict blood vessels.
Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent source of hydration for your skin.
Nourishing Plant Butters and Oils
Look for ingredients that are celebrated for their proven anti-ageing abilities. Shea Butter is an excellent ingredient for moisturising your skin.
