There are many reasons to use eye cream. Laughing, frowning and smiling all cause for wrinkles to form. Granted, it takes years, which is why you want to use eye cream. Moisturize the skin and reduce wrinkle appearance as they form.


You may think there is nothing to do about the formation of wrinkles around the eyes, but really there is. If you take a look at a lot of the movie stars, you will see that they often have beautiful skin. There are ads that ask is it nature, or is it from the use of a product. Though the actress or model may have begun with beautiful skin, it takes effort to keep it that way. Not only is skin forming wrinkles from facial expressions, it is also getting weathered by the sun.


Face cream and eye cream, when used twice daily, helps make you look years younger. For best results, fully wash your face at night. Apply the creams, especially around the eyes. The following morning, rinse only with water. Recall that skin heals itself when sleeping and produces natural oils and lubricants. Using harsh cleaners in the morning will erase all the good that sleep has given it. After rinsing with water, apply the creams. Used on a regular basis has shown that the look of wrinkles are reduced and take longer for new ones to form.


Why do you need separate face and eye creams?  The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate and cannot absorb the richer oils formulated in a face cream. The eyes require a special lighter formulation especially designed to be absorbed by the delicate eye contour area.  Likewise a delicate eye cream isn’t sufficient to protect the face, where a more potent cream or lotion is needed.
