Just as you have your moisturizer, toner, face serum, face mask, sunscreen, etc, on your bedstand, so also should you have your eye cream!
You might be wondering….
Why buy a cream just for the eyes, when you have already bought other products that work for your whole face? Why waste additional cash buying one for just the eyes? If your eyes need a cream, your facial cream should do.
After all, last time you checked, your eyes were doing just fine.
If you feel this way, it is because you do not know just how important the eye cream is to making sure your face looks younger even when you are growing older.
Your eye cream does more than just moisturizing your eyes. There are a lot of other benefits and I will be talking about some of them today.
Why you should have an eye cream?
Here are some of the benefits your skin derives from the daily application of an eye cream:
It slows down the aging process around your eyes
Whether or not you agree, the eyes age the fastest. i.e. they begin to look older before other parts of your face do.
Your eye area has the thinnest and the most fragile skin on your face. It does not have oil-producing glands (so, it does not have enough moisture it needs) and the skin on top of your eyes sits on top of thousands of muscles that contract every time you blink, smile or frown.
So, not only is your eye skin very thin, it is constantly under strain. Little wonder it loses elasticity on time and begins to show aging signs.
The truth is; nothing can completely stop this aging process, not even botox or surgery, but with the right eye cream, you can keep your skin looking healthy and young.
Eye cream provides your skin with hydration, moisture, antioxidants and other nutrients that keep the skin around your eye blemish-free and slow down the aging process.
It provides the special care your eyes need
The skin around your eye is not only thin, but also very sensitive – more sensitive than other parts of your face, and this makes it prone to damage.
Your eye cream is made with the right combination of ingredients that will cater to the delicate skin around your eyes without causing damage.
For example, since the skin around your eye has less oil-producing glands (which makes it look dehydrated), the eye cream is formulated in a way that makes up for that defect and provides the skin with the extra moisture it needs.
Your normal cream just cannot do the work. It is too heavy for the skin around your eyes and it might not be easily absorbed into your skin. Eye creams, on the other hand, have a lightweight texture which makes them easily absorbed into the skin.
It removes dark circles around your eyes
This is one of the well-known benefits of using an eye cream.
There are a lot of factors that cause dark circles around the eyes, one of which is exposure to sunlight, which is, sadly, something we cannot escape in our climate.
Other factors include stress, pigmentation, heredity, smoking, etc.
But you can get yourself an eye cream.
All these ingredients make it possible for your eye cream to brighten and lighten the darkened area around your eyes.
It makes your eyes puff-free
Eye bags and puffiness have a way of creeping in on us, especially after we have had a couple of stressful days or we have not had a good night’s rest in a while.
Your eyes get puffy when there is a fluid buildup which causes swelling in the tissue around your eyes. Apart from stress, it can be caused by allergies, sinuses, diet, alcohol and aging.
With your eye cream, you do not have to worry about these. Eye creams help your skin appear smoother and reduces the puffiness on your skin.
For puffy eyes, you can look for eye creams that are formulated with caffeine. Just as caffeine makes us awake whenever we drink it, it makes the skin around your eyes look alive.
It constricts the vessels under your eyes, reduces the swelling and makes the skin around your eyes puff-free.
It delays the appearance of wrinkles
Even though you are young now, we are all bound to have wrinkles someday.
The good news is: you can delay the appearance of wrinkles for as long as is possible.
The truth is that eye cream is an anti-aging product and some women feel that they do not need it yet until they are old. But you do!
Eye cream prevents wrinkles from showing on your face prematurely. It nurtures your skin, helps to boost the production of collagen and elastin, provide the skin with all the nutrients it needs to stay young and healthy.
All these keep the skin around your eyes firm and strong.
Even though you might not see the result of this now, in the next few years, you will realize that your mates already have wrinkles lining their faces while yours is still looking smooth.
There is a reason why eye creams are being produced and considered necessary by skin experts.
Only your eye cream can take good care of your eyes. And if you do not take good care of your eyes, they will age so quickly, you will begin to have aging signs long before you should.
If you do not have an eye cream, you should get one now!
