Everyone’s heard the promises: get rid of dark circles, reduce fine lines, reverse the signs of aging and appearance of wrinkles. But at the end of the day aren’t eye creams just a more expensive moisturizer? This isn’t necessarily the case.


As one dermatologist notes, “"Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eye, so they tend to be thicker. They contain more oil than a regular facial lotion, and they have a lot of active ingredients aimed at the problems we see around the eyes" the doctor explains.


Skin around the eyes tend to be more fragile and far more prone to dryness. Thus skin around the eyes is also quicker to show fatigue and aging. Constant eye movement and squinting can also cause wrinkles to appear faster. These problems can be aided with an effective eye cream that will help you to pull off a younger and more youthful appearance.


Select an eye cream that contains peptides, known to strengthen and restore impaired cells. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, another favored ingredients is a form of Vitamin-C used to cause a brightening effect on the appearance of the skin. Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin – A), and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin – E),help to promote collagen production and help to visibly decrease the roughness of skin, the depth of wrinkles, and the length of facial lines.
