The first signs of aging are usually visible in the eye area. A good skin care for the skin around the eyes is therefore essential. But the use of a special eye cream is therefore not absolutely necessary.
Eye creams are often presented as products that have been “specially formulated” to care for the thin and sensitive skin around the eyes. Various manufacturers state that such bags, dark circles and sagging skin disappear, but of course eye creams are not miracle drugs. Often, these do not contain sunscreen or feel weighty.
These then too rich eye cream will ensure that your concealer and your foundation seep into the fine wrinkles around your eyes and your wrinkles become even more visible.
Thinner and More Sensitive Skin
The skin in the eye area is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your face. But that does not necessarily mean that you need a different product for this area because, after all, your whole face needs mild, fragrance-free products. Such care should include antioxidants , cell-communicating and skin-healing ingredients. These provide healthier skin cells, stimulate collagen production, reduce skin discoloration and regenerate the natural skin barrier.
If you are already using a gentle, effective day cream , night cream or serum , these are also ideal for the skin of the eye area, as long as the eye area has the same skin type as the rest of your face.
Dry Skin Around The Eye Area
If your skin around the eyes is drier than the rest of your face, we recommend that you use an emollient formulation. In such a case, a special eye cream is a useful addition to your skin care routine .
Eye Bags and Dark Circles
Unfortunately, eye bags that have been sunken under the eyes do not help with creams. If you tend to have bags that absorb moisture because you are not getting enough sleep, a soothing eye cream can help. But to see real changes, you should, for example, sleep more, drink less alcohol and eat less salt.
