The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the entire face. Because it’s thinner, it dries out more easily and even begins to show age earlier. In fact, that’s the reason that crow’s feet lines around the eyes are the first wrinkles to become visible anywhere on the face.
Thinner eye area skin loses moisture more quickly, resulting in fine dehydration lines. In turn, dry, dehydrated skin under the eyes is a leading cause of dark circles.
So why can’t I just use my face cream in the eye area?
The skin around the eyes tends to be more sensitive, and most face creams aren’t formulated for tolerability in the eye area. Facial moisturizers are also much richer – far more than what’s needed by the more susceptible eye area skin. Overdoing it around the eyes with a heavy moisturizer can result in puffiness, essentially an excess of water held as a reservoir under the skin.
A well-formulated eye cream can address all of these issues – from dryness and dehydration to puffiness and fine lines. A solid, lightweight eye cream delivers just the right amount of moisture, and is light enough that it can be easily absorbed by the thinner eye-area skin. In addition to moisture, the best eye creams infuse the skin with nutrients in the form of antioxidant vitamins to strengthen the skin against aging environmental damage.
An anti-aging eye cream like the our Eye Cream is formulated with moisture, antioxidant vitamins and even plumping peptides to smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With this complex of beneficial actives, it’s one of the best anti-aging eye creams for lines and wrinkles in the eye area.
