Do You Need an Eye Cream?

There has been a lot of buzz on social media lately about whether or not an eye cream is necessary. Here, our resident aesthetician explains all we need to know about eye creams, why she recommends using one, and how to choose a result-driven eye cream. 

The Importance of Eye Cream

Once we understand how delicate the skin is around our eyes, we can better care for it. The skin around the eye area is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your face. Did you know that the first signs of aging often become visible around the eyes? Rather than waiting until you notice the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, or puffiness, you should start using an eye cream that will help keep the skin looking and feeling youthful, hydrated, and plump as you age. 

How to Choose The Right Eye Cream

I'm sure we are looking for the benefits of eye cream that can turn back the clock. Choosing a well-formulated eye cream will help you see the best results. Our resident esthetician highly suggests using a gentle and fragrance-free eye cream. Good eye cream should contain an abundance of antioxidants, botanical oils, and vitamins. Our resident esthetician made a list of innovative ingredients to look for in your eye cream.

  • Simply put, retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and a powerful ingredient. It's a superstar ingredient promoting the skin to look and feel firm, plump, and young.

  • Plant stem cells help with aging beautifully by making the skin look and feel firm and youthful. 

  • Niacinamide is a spectacular ingredient for all skin types. This ingredient will be your lipid barrier's best friend!

  • Panthenol works overtime to hydrate, renew, and smooth the skin. 

At What Age Should You Start Using Eye Cream?

"You should start to wear eye cream at the beginning of your early twenties," says our resident esthetician. We suggest using eye cream daily both in your morning and evening skincare regimen. Be sure to apply your eye cream gently by tapping the product with your ring finger, as opposed to dragging or tugging it on the skin. Now that you know why you should use an eye cream and how to find the right one for your skin, it's time to add one to your skincare regimen.
