What are some compelling reasons to get hold of a good eye cream and start using them instead of relying on the residual moisturizer you apply on your face? We tell you the importance of effectively treating the most delicate part of the face with targeted, specialized solutions.
Why do I need an eye cream?
The skin around the eyes is about ten times thinner than the rest of the face. With lower levels of collagen and elastin fibers, the eyes are the first area to give away your age. They may appear in the form of crow’s feet and drooping upper eyelids, making your eyes appear smaller.
Eye creams are specially developed with these challenges in mind. Cosmetic skincare researchers need to develop eye creams that reduce sensitivity such as fragrance-free and dye-free, and delivering effective ingredients into the skin.
Some benefits of eye cream
As your skin ages, it becomes dry because the sebaceous glands tend to become less active and produce less sebum. The ageing process becomes even more visible for your eyes because the skin around the eyes usually contain very few sebaceous glands and the skin dries up and ages much faster than other parts of the face.
When you have dry skin, wrinkles and fine lines form. Using a gentle non-comedogenic eye cream combined with moisturizing ingredients and protective antioxidants, eye creams can help to reduce the dryness, plumping up the skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines for a longer time.
The skin around the eyes are very sensitive to environmental stressors such as UV rays. In fact, the harmful UV rays are likely your most dangerous threat because you are not aware of the damage it does to you on a daily basis. Fortunately, some eye creams even offer sun protection with SPF 15 to shield your eyes from the harmful UV rays.
Boost collagen and reverse aging
Some of the best eye creams should contain some peptides such as copper peptides, polypeptides, and oligopeptides. These compounds can penetrate the skin and help boost the collagen levels and restore hyaluronic acid under the skin.
By restoring these structural proteins in the skin around the eyes, they hold the cells and tissues together, diminishing the tired look and reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Are there any risks in using eye cream?
Remember that the skin around the eyes are very delicate and sensitive, so you should avoid using harsh chemicals or potentially irritating ingredients. Always make sure that you read the ingredient list to find out if you are allergic to any compound, especially fragrance, dyes, and parabens.
Most eye creams should be able to meet the fundamental requirement by erasing fine lines, as long as they contain moisturizing ingredients to plump up the skin temporarily.
In essence, the risk of using an eye cream that contains harsh chemicals can be eliminated if you spend some time to read the skincare label and select the best eye cream that suits your skin.
The skincare market is full of eye cream and companies are making claims that they will erase all signs of aging around the eyes. Make sure you exercise caution and read the ingredient list. Only products that contain effective ingredients will work.
