Why You Should Add Eye Cream To Your Routine

Eyes are the windows to the soul. Eyes are the first to expose late nights and age through dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. Holding frozen spoons to your eyes doesn’t have to be the solution to hiding your fatigue. Eye cream is!

You may be thinking that eye cream is just like another moisturiser. Wrong! Eye creams are specially formulated for the delicate skin beneath your eyes and tend to be thicker. They generally contain more oil than other facial lotions and contain more active ingredients to target problems around the eyes. Regular face lotions also may contain chemicals that may be harmful to the sensitive skin around your eyes and may contain fragrances that irritate your eyes too.

Why should I use eye cream?

So what are the benefits of eye cream? Looking for a solution to stop you looking tired in the morning? Eye creams are formulated to reduce signs of sleepiness which often occur around the eyes when you are tired. So if you add eye cream to your night time routine you can wake up looking fresh.

Dark circles under the eyes come from genes, sun damage, age and blood build-up. Products in eye creams can thicken the skin under your eyes and can help conceal dark circles after 6 months. Eye cream is a saviour if you naturally have dark circles from genetics or environmental aggressors.

Think about how often you move your eyes every day. Squinting at your computer screen, blinking around 10,000 times a day, winking at a cute boy and even making facial expressions all tug our eyes in different directions. And you were worrying about getting wrinkles on your forehead… All these movements lead to the development of crow’s feet around the eyes. The key to reducing crow's feet is through hydration! Due to the lack of pores around your eye area, your eye doesn’t have much natural moisture. Your ageing skin also loses its elasticity (the quality that makes youthful skin “bouncy”) and collagen begins to slowly break down, which causes sagging and wrinkles. Also, as your skin becomes all the more wiser it also becomes even drier because the sebaceous glands gradually produce less sebum. Sebum secretion is a nightmare for those who have constant blemishes but is our skin’s best anti-ageing feature. Using an eye cream can ward off dryness through hydration and keep it looking smooth. Hydrated skin is less prone to fine lines, signs of fatigue and also makes your concealer application super smooth. Eye cream prevents the formation of fine lines as the cream fills the spaces between the skin cells. This prevents the appearance of wrinkles on your skin. If you are young and thinking that fine lines don’t affect you keep in mind prevention is better than a cure.
