Eye creams are an integral part of a complete skincare routine, yet they're often one of the most neglected. The sensitive skin around our eyes is often the first place we start to see signs of ageing, and that's because the skin is far more delicate than the rest of the face. Exposure to the sun and other elements can dry out the skin and deplete the collagen levels leaving behind signs of premature ageing and dark circles.
If you're on the fence about eye creams, and don't know where to start. We've put together a handy little guide to help you find the right product to suit you.
1. When should I start using an eye cream?
There's no time limit, but as with all good skincare prevention is better than a cure. The earlier you start looking after your skin, the easier it will be to maintain in the long run. It's not just fine lines and wrinkles that benefit from a good eye cream, but dark circles and puffiness caused by too many late nights can be fixed with a cooling gel or serum.
The serum from Caviar Switzerland has a rich but lightweight formula that won't feel heavy on the skin, and is enriched with organic floral water and vitamins. Lightly dab the solution around the eyes for a rich boost of moisture that will banish dark circles and reduce puffiness.
2. What if I don't have time to use it?
In the mornings, a full on skin routine can be the last thing you need. If you're pressed for time, it's going to be much easier to do something more involved when all you have to do afterwards is crawl between the sheets and get some much needed beauty sleep. If you're more of an owl than a lark this intense eye mask from Aroma Works could be the perfect solution. Liberally apply before bed to give your skin a chance to repair and hydrate, and when you wake up in the morning you should find yourself bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to take on the world.
3. Help! I've already started seeing signs of ageing.
If you're not happy with your laughter lines, then now is the time to step up your routine. Using an eye cream daily can become a good habit you'll want to keep. Like with anything new, if you want it to stick then repetition is the key. Make a note of integrating an eye cream into your daily routine, keep it somewhere visible and applying it for 30 days straight. Soon it'll become second nature and you'll feel like something's missing if you happen to forget. This smoothing eye cream from Resultime is infused with Resultimes exclusive Lipolytic active ingredient which acts on fatty deposits whilst Hyaluronic Acid provides hydration which is essential for skin regeneration. A true miracle worker for the eye area, 5 Expertise Eye Cream has a Shea Butter base which nourishes and protects the skin as Soy Membranes combat sagging skin.
So there you have it. Eye creams, simplified. If you're still curious you can check out the whole collection of eye treatments here.
