How to choose your eye cream

Whether an eye cream should be an integral part of your skin care routine is a question which most people ask. This is a question which does not come with a simple reason as it’s all a matter of personal preference. This is because though there are many creams which are called eye creams but are just moisturizers, if you feel your eye cream makes a difference, you might as well use it.

If you want to know how to choose your eye cream, it’s better to choose based on its ingredients list as it’s better to preserve your eye area now with good skincare habits. For example, protecting your eye area with SPF everyday plays an important part in how your skin ages. Read on to learn about other things to look out for while choosing an eye cream.

As the skin surrounding the eyes is very fragile, the skin is more prone to dryness than the rest of the face. You thus benefit from a bit of moisture along with anti-aging ingredients in a product like First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Overnight Balm. It is packed with Shea butter, jojoba and flower waxes to provide for better-hydrated skin.

Look for retinol and caffeine

The under eye area has lots of fine lines and crow’s feet which develop as a consequence of squinting, smoking and facial expressions. As retinol is the best ingredient to fight and prevent fine lines, Glow by Dr.Brandt Revitalizing Retinol Eye cream helps smooth away wrinkles and prevents moisture loss with its blend of vitamin E, glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

Caffeine is best for brightening dark circles as its topical application encourages blood flow and constricts vessels to help reduce the shadowy look. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream is formulated with coffee bean and optical brighteners to give instant radiance while giving puffy under eyes the right makeover.

Prevention is always better than cure

If you don’t have much of a problem with the skin around your eyes, but just want to apply something as a preventive measure from the signs of aging, then the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream is just what you need.

This is a cream which covers all the bases while addressing early signs of aging to brighten and protect the eye region with vitamins C and E and antioxidants. In addition to this, its promised lotus flower extract provides the necessary defense against free radicals which is what causes wrinkles.
