From hydrating creams, to lightweight gels and nourishing balms, targeted eyecare is one of the most effective ways of improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But it’s important to remember that this area of the skin is thinner and more delicate than that on your face, so finding a texture that’s best suited to your skin type is vital. Discover which type of product will help you get the results you’re looking for with our simple guide.
Eye creams are excellent at providing instant comfort to drier skin, making them ideal for more mature skin types where natural levels of lipids and collagen have reduced. SkinCeuticals A.G.E Eye Complex helps to improve the appearance of ageing around the eyes including crow’s feetand dark circles, so it’s suitable for addressing a range of concerns.
Eye balms are ideal for sensitive, drier skin types and usually contain less water than cream textures. This helps them to create a protective barrier over the skin and keep hydration locked in. SkinCeuticals Eye Balm helps target visible signs of ageing by restoring loss lipids. It does this with a rich formula containing Vitamin E, Silymarin, and Aloe Vera that soothes and calms the skin.
If fatigue and dark circles are something you’re concerned about, then SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel can help. It’s formulated with a potent mix of active ingredients including phloretin, l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and ferulic acid which can help to protect the eye area from environmental damage and visibly improve photodamaged skin. Apply it in the morning for best results, and follow with your favourite eye cream for extra comfort.
Face serums rich in hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid are another effective way of treating the eye area. SkinCeuticals H.A. (Hyaluronic Acid) Intensifier, for example, helps to amplify the skin’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid. This can help to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin texture – including around the eyes.
