Take a look at your specific skin concern to learn what ingredients you should look for in an eye cream:
Those with dry skin will want to hydrate and nourish the eye area particularly as dry skin can augment the appearance of wrinkles. Look for ingredients such as shea butter, glycerin, rosehip oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil and Vitamin E. Hyaluronic acid is not only incredibly hydrating but it is also a powerful anti-ageing ingredient. It draws moisture from the air and plumps up dry skin giving it a more youthful appearance and minimising wrinkles.
Mica is a light-reflecting ingredient that helps to camouflage dark circles and Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) can also help to reduce discolouration as well as strengthen the skin's barrier locking in moisture. Likewise, Vitamin C can reduce darkness as well as brighten the undereye area. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti-ageing ingredient that stimulates the production of collagen which helps to support, firm, tone and strengthen skin.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Vitamin A (Retinol) works to improve elasticity and stimulate collagen formation to strengthen skin, reduce fine lines and ensure that skin is smooth, firm and taut.
Vitamin C is an ideal ingredient for your morning eye cream as it not only protects skin from sun and environmental damage that causes wrinkles and fine lines, but it also rejuvenates and revitalises skin. It makes the perfect pick-me-up to go along with your morning coffee.
Caffeine is also included in many daytime eye creams as it helps to decrease puffiness. Adopting a lymph drainage massage on a regular basis will help drain trapped fluid around the eye area also and reduce puffiness and improve eye health.
