Wash, tone, moisturize. You do this every single night without fail. By sticking to this skin care routine, you think you’re doing enough to take care of your skin. But how about the skin around your eyes?
The eye area needs extra attention. The problem is that most people fail at looking after their eye area. Here are 3 reasons why you should start using eye cream.
Reduce eye wrinkles
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. This is because our skin gets dryer, thinner, and less elastic as we age. The skin around the eyes is very thin, prone to dryness, and is quicker to show age and fatigue. As such, it is common to see wrinkles around the eye area.
The primary goal of using an eye cream is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. You want the areas around the eyes to be supple and flake-free to keep looking young and fresh. But since the skin around the eyes is significantly thinner than the rest of your face, you can’t use regular moisturizers. They contain ingredients that may irritate the skin around the eyes. As such, we recommend that you use a targeted moisturizer such as an eye cream.
Reduce puffiness and bags around the eyes
Puffy eyes are a result of excessive accumulation of fluids. Other causes of puffy eyes include allergies and lack of sleep.
Eye puffiness isn’t exactly our favorite look. If you are looking for a fast and effective way to get rid of puffy eyes, eye creams can help. Most eye creams contain ingredients such as licorice and caffeine that helps reduce puffiness. Cold temperatures also work in reducing puffiness. Go ahead and store your eye cream in the refrigerator. Not only will it help address eye puffiness, your eyes will also feel more refreshed.
Remove dark circles
According to studies, about a third of Americans are not getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep can cause dark circles under your eyes to appear. The older you get, the more apparent they become.
No one wants to look like a zombie. Incorporating eye cream into your skin care routine can help get rid of dark circles and alleviate the appearance of tired eyes.
