Healthy skin is probably the best way to slow down the aging process. Choosing the right products makes it so much easier to maintain proper skin care. Let’s start with our eyes. Experts agree on the importance of treating the skin around our eyes separately. Here’s why…
Face creams can be too irritating, but specific products made for this delicate area work wonders for smoothing fine lines. It’s important to only use our ring finger around the eye area because it gives the least amount of pressure, ensuring we don’t tug that delicate eye area skin.
Gently pat, don’t rub, moisturizers, concealers and foundations under the eyes. You get the same great coverage without rubbing or pulling your under-eye skin. Since there are no muscles in that area, patting the skin gently is the best way to apply any product. I recommend avoiding sunscreen under your eyes because it may irritate the sensitive skin there.
Here are some ingredients to consider when buying a quality eye cream:
A biomimetic peptide helps support the processes critical for skin repair. Biomimetic is a fancy word to say this peptide encourages the skin to mimic processes found in younger skin. As collagen breaks down, amino acids are formed. These are the active molecules and tiny proteins called peptides. Peptides in skin care provides great anti-aging benefits.
Another important ingredient in a quality eye cream is a hyaluronic acid booster which helps provide youthful skin volume and lift. Using plant stem cells helps protect the integrity of the skin matrix, the source of skin firmness. A quality eye cream has a liquid crystal delivery system that can help enhance effectiveness.
Liquid crystals are physically similar to the skin barrier which may help the eye cream be more compatible with the skin’s surface. This also has been shown to help support the skin barrier.
Consider an eye cream that fights the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. As we age skin loses density, elasticity and firmness which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. You want a formula that contains ingredients shown to help promote the production of collagen and protect against elastin degradation to help strengthen and defend the skin matrix.
Look for one that fights undereye bags, puffiness and dark circles. It should contain specialized ingredients like plant extracts, antioxidants and peptides that help minimize melanin production, encourage the elimination of excess fluid, and help minimize skin irritation.
You especially want a quality eye cream that fights crepiness and dry skin, contains ingredients that help promote the production of hyaluronic acid which can decline with age, and replenishes skin’s natural lipids to help support the moisture barrier and provide long-term hydration.
