Eye Wrinkle Cream: Do You Really Need One? Why? And What Ingredients Should You Look For?
It’s never too soon to start thinking about how to care for the skin around your eyes. Thankfully there are some ingredients that have done very well in medical studies, showing the ability to boost the production of collagen, elastin, reduce dark circles, sagging, and wrinkles.
Here we’ll outline those important ingredients and explain a few things. Our experts are available to go over any questions you may have via chat (button lower right corner of our store) or via email at email@example.com.
Why Does Your Eye Skin Need Special Care?
Our eye skin around our eyes is more fragile than just about any other place on our bodies. Because this eye skin is thinner, discoloration and veins can show through much more visibly. And such a thin part of our face needs the extra help to create more collagen and elastin, as we get older. Most people look for an eye cream if they are noticing some dark circles, some sagging around the eyes, and that hollow, crepey look that can settle in as we age.
The great news is that you can not only start to prevent further damage, but you can reverse some of it with the right ingredients and right products.
It’s best to look for organic or chemical free products, because this thin eye skin will absorb those unpleasant ingredients, thus potentially causing our bodies to regain those unwanted ingredients.
Eye Wrinkle Cream Ingredients: Top Picks
Peptides: Plant based peptides have been proven to improve the condition of skin and are definitely one of the top picks for science. Peptides have the ability to reduce the degree of existing wrinkles and reduce the development of future wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules, which helps keep the skin hydrated and supple. Levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin significantly decrease as people age, which can lead to dehydrated skin and wrinkles. Researchers do show that in studies, the depth of wrinkles decreases with the use of hyaluronic acid.
Retinol: Retinol is naturally derived and is such an important ingredient for skin care. Retinol is not the same as the prescription, Retin-A or tretinoin, and studiesshow it is much less irritating than the prescription. Users can enjoy the long term benefits of retinol when using products that contain retinol for wrinkles and anti aging.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is such a well known vitamin, and perhaps the most important one when it comes to skin care. Vitamin C can significantly promote collagen production, scavenge free radicals on the skin, and inhibit melanin production. So not only does it heal and protect skin, it helps prevent future damage, per medical studies. Vitamin C can also help brighten skin.
Antioxidants: Antioxidants can help slow cell damage as well as help repair cells that are already damaged. They can help prevent UV damage, calm skin inflammation, and slow the aging process. Medical studies show that antioxidants are crucial in maintaining healthy vibrant skin.
Niacinamide: Niacinamide is a powerhouse for the skin. It can not only help skin retain moisture and stay hydrated, but it can also smooth wrinkles, lessen inflammation and irritation, and help correct discoloration in skin. Medical studies show that it is one of the primary skin care ingredients you want to have in your daily routine.
Caffeine: Caffeine is a wonderful addition to any skin care routine. You’ll not only see the benefits almost immediately, but it is an anticarcinogen, which means it can help prevent cancerous cells from forming. Caffeine is an effective way to reduce puffiness around the eyes and give you that more awake look.
Tips to Keep Your Eyes Looking Wrinkle Free
There are a few proactive things you can do to help reduce your eye wrinkles and keep future wrinkles at bay. Here are some tried and true suggestions to help:
Wear sleep eye patches or Frownies when you sleep. This concept is truly fabulous because you are protecting the eye area from creasing during sleep. As a side sleeper, I personally find that my eyes look more awake, rested, and wrinkle free when I protect my eyes in this way.
Find a quartz or jade facial roller that you like and keep it in the freezer or refrigerator. I personally keep mine in the freezer. It’s a very effective and invigorating way to wake up those eyes and reduce water retention. This will immediately tone the eye area. The one I have as a smooth roller on one end and a textured one on the other, which behaves as a massaging treatment.
Remove your cosmetics at night, even if they are natural and organic. Our skin can rejuvenate properly when we take a moment to remove all eye makeup and cleanse our face. I guarantee you’ll wake up looking more rested and refreshed.
A “do it yourself” face massage will help reduce fluids and tone skin. Not only will you skin look radiant, but your eyes will look more awake, rested, and you’ll feel so much better. Taking the time to do so is a great way to show self care. Here is a video that I highly recommended that you can follow along with instruction.
