Why Using An Eye Cream Matters

Jen FreitasComment

With the chilly temperatures finally here, you may find yourself investing extra time into taking care of your skin with serums and other hydrating products to help add in the moisture that is lost through dry winter air and indoor heating.

While this is all great, are you treating your eye area to the same TLC? You may assume that the facial oils and creams you use on your face are fine to use under your eyes, but the skin under your eyes is very different to the skin on the rest of your face.

The skin under your eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, and contains very few oil glands, meaning you need to help it along with a product specifically designed for this sensitive and delicate area.

Eye creams are more concentrated and will help to address various issues with the eye area, just keep reading to find out how!

Reduces Puffiness

Ah, the dreaded under eye bags. Puffiness occurs when fluid builds up in the tissues around your eyes. This can be from lack of sleep, dehydration, poor diet or simply chronic allergies and sinus. Look for an eye cream that contains ingredients specifically formulated for reducing puffiness and adding hydration such as corn flower and rose, found in our Eyewaken Eye cream.

Fades Dark Circles

Dark circles are another bane of this area, and the quickest way to not only make you look tired, but older too. Of course, a good concealer is always helpful, but wouldn’t it be nice to just have to apply one layer rather than a gazillion?

Dark circles are a result of various factors including hereditary factors, stress and sun exposure. Dark circles are not always just related to lack of sleep! Look for brightening and plumping ingredients such as Calendula, beeswax and Vitamin E found in our Calendula Eye Balm. This eye cream will add deep hydration to plump up and minimize shadows for an instant eye boost.

Helps With Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, but because the skin under the eyes lacks natural moisture and is so thin, it ages a lot quicker than the rest of the face if not taken care of.

Our Odacite Ultra Effective Eye Cream will sort you out in no time thanks to potent organic blue green algae to stimulate cell vitality and help renew firmness, along with other powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals all day long.

 

Tips and Tricks for Applying

Below are a few tips to help you apply your eye cream the right way for beautiful results.

  • Pat, don’t rub into your skin! Use your ring finger to gently pat your eye cream into your eye area until fully absorbed.

  • Store your eye cream in the fridge. The coolness will help to constrict your blood vessels for an immediate tightening effect.

  • Always opt for fragrance free and all natural eye creams such as the ones you will find at our store.
