Do I need eye cream?
Do I need eye cream? Hell yeah!
The most common concern in the facial room is eyes.Â From fine lines and dryness to dark circles and puffiness, skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most fragile on your entire body. Thatâ€™s why I believe that this delicate area really benefits from a lot of love and attention.
I recommend eye products even for girls in their early twenties because itâ€™s never too early for starting good skin care habits.Â Unlike skin on the rest on your face, the eye area does not contain oil glands that can help keep it moist.
So in your 20s, you can stick to gentle, hydrating eye cream. As we age, our skin makes less collagen, which is responsible for skin elasticity. Thatâ€™s why in our mid-30s we start seeing more small lines, which means the worst of all…unwanted aging.
â€¦So how to find the perfect eye cream?
My first advice is to always opt for fragrance-free to avoid irritation. Moisturizers should be from a tube, and never from a jar. Jarred products promote bacterial growth due to contaminants from our fingers.
Dermalogica offers a few really good eye creams. If youâ€™re a 20-something looking for hydration and sun protection, reach for Intensive eye repairÂ or Total eye care.
I canâ€™t live without my Multivitamin Power Firm.Â This powerful firming complex has it all. It helps accelerate the natural skin repair process with Vitamin A(Retinol) as an antioxidant and Vitamins C and E to improve elasticity while scavenging free radicals. Red seaweed extract helps firm the skin and green tea soothes any irritations. The star ingredients are silicones. They smooth skin texture and make eye make-up apply better. An extra benefit from this complex is that it can be used twice a day around the eye areaâ€¦ and also as a perfect lip serum.
Your eyes are the first thing people noticeâ€¦so take good care of them!
