How Does Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream Work?

November 29, 2016

If you think the anti-wrinkle eye cream sitting in your medicine cabinet is just another moisturizer in a smaller pot, think again. The best anti-wrinkle skin products for the delicate skin around the eyes are very different from moisturizers and lotions used on the rest of the body. Let’s find out how they work to help you find the right eye cream for your anti-aging needs.

Hydrating Eye Cream

Thicker for Delicate Eye Skin

Anti-wrinkle eye creams are generally much thicker than their anti-aging counterparts for the rest of the face. They are formulated especially for the thin, delicate skin around the eyes and subsequently feature more oil. Constant eye movement and squinting make this thin skin age faster than other parts of the body. The result is more lines and wrinkles, more fluid collection, and more dark circles and puffiness. Lines and wrinkles appear due to reduced collagen production in the body and damage from UVA and UVB rays. Fluid and blood build up under the eyes due to poor circulation and diets high in sodium, while dark circles appear because of blood build-up, genetics, age, and sun damage.

More Active Ingredients

The best anti-wrinkle skin products for the eyes feature many active ingredients, such as retinol, peptides, and vitamin C. All of these boost collagen production to help skin remain elastic and plump. Hyaluronic acid is another common anti-aging eye cream product that helps elasticity and prevents water loss. Dehydrated skin looks dull and wrinkled compared to a well-hydrated face.

The Best Cream for Wrinkles

Find the best cream for wrinkles by spending a little time researching ingredients and experimenting until you get the results you crave. No two people have the same anti-aging skin care needs, so find what combats the signs of aging you’re experiencing and go from there.

There are so many fun pairings in life, a chilled glass of crisp rosé with a fresh green salad, high waisted jeans with a colorful midriff top, a smoky eye with a neutral lip. But when it comes to skincare, the risk of layering or pairing the wrong ingredients together can leave lasting, skin-deep effects. Breakouts, rashes, redness and excessive peeling and flaking are just some of the pitfalls of bad pairings!  

With the growing number of concentrated, active ingredient products on the market, it’s a good idea to know which products work best together, and which to avoid. Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C are some of the most popular skincare ingredients on the market right now. But should we be using them together, and if so, how should we layer HA and Vitamin C?
