WHY YOU NEED AN EYECREAM + HOW TO SHOP FOR ONE

why you need an eyecream + how to shop for one

OKAY, SO YOU’RE USING A GOOD MOISTURISER, WHY DO YOU NEED AN EYE CREAM?

It’s not just a big marketing ploy to make you buy more products, it’s because not all skin is created equal. Serious!


The skin around your eyes is thinner, and because of all the tiny muscles in the area, it’s more sensitive and prone to a variety of skin-issues, like puffiness, discolouration, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Plus, there are minimal oil glands around your eyes to help keep the skin naturally hydrated, so finding the right eye cream can help ward off a heap of complexion concerns.

Here’s some help to find the perfect eyecream for you:

For puffiness: Undereye puffiness comes from fluid buildup that causes swelling in the tissues around your eyes. This can come from allergies and sinuses, but it can also be a result of sleep deprivation, diet, alcohol, and just plain old ageing. Look for ingredients like caffeine or cooling cucumber, which can help reduce swelling.

For dark circles: Discolouration around the eyes can be a result of various factors, including heredity, stress, smoking, sun exposure, pigmentation, and shadows from the hollowing out of your eyes. Things like vitamins C and K, kojic acid, and licorice can help combat skin discolouration, while ingredients like peptides can help plump up the skin to get rid of any shadows. You should also look for light-reflecting ingredients to give you an instant brightening effect.

For fine lines: Thinner skin mixed with constant muscle action {winking, blinking, even smiling} can lead your eyes to show signs of ageing faster than the rest of your face. Make sure you look for collagen-building ingredients, such as retinol, to help boost thinning skin and smooth out fine lines.

+ extra eyecream tips and tricks:

• Try storing your eye cream in the refrigerator. The extra shot of coolness will soothe tired eyes and help with puffiness.

• Using eye cream under your makeup can help concealer apply more smoothly and prevent it from building up in fine lines.

• Since the eye area is so sensitive, the best eye creams will be fragrance free. If your eye concerns are allergy-related, try an over-the-counter antihistamine.
