The Buzz Around Eye Cream

When it comes to skincare, there’s one area that often gets overlooked – the delicate skin around our eyes. With so many products on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are worth your time and money. When it comes to eye cream, the key is to understand your ingredients, in particular look for hyaluronic acid. So let’s dive in and find out why eye cream is special and makes a difference!

The skin around our eyes is thinner and more delicate compared to the rest of our face. Hence, it is more prone to dryness and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process and can be influenced by various factors. These factors can include a combination of things, including age, sun exposure, and loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. Hormones can also play a role, as changes in hormone levels can affect collagen production and the skin’s elasticity and moisture balance.

This is why using a dedicated eye cream is crucial. Eye creams are specially formulated to address the unique needs of this sensitive area, providing the right amount of hydration, nourishment and protection. Regular moisturizers are often too heavy for the sensitive skin around the eyes. It requires extra care, and that is where our Eye Cream w/Hyaluronic Acid come into play. 

So when it comes to picking an eye cream what ingredients should we be looking for and why?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in our body that is amazing at retaining water. This makes it incredibly hydrating, which is exactly what the delicate eye area needs. Fun fact, Cleveland Clinic tells us that a quarter teaspoon of hyaluronic acid can hold up to one and a half gallons of water! However, with age and environmental exposures it will diminish, so sometimes we need a boost of this via our skin care. By using an eye cream with hyaluronic acid, you can replenish moisture, plump up fine lines, and reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. With the help of hyaluronic acid, Eye Cream w/Hyaluronic Acid provides intense hydration without weighing down on the skin and allows moisture to penetrate deeply and deliver its moisturizing benefits.

Our Eye Cream w/Hyaluronic Acid is also infused with vitamins bringing additional antiaging properties. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that removes free radicals and supports skin barrier function and Vitamin B soothes and hydrates the skin. Vitamin A is a form of retinoid that promotes collagen production and skin renewal to help smoothen and firm up skin. 

Additionally, it uses Safflower Oil that is rich in linoleic acid and omega-6 fatty acids to help nourish and moisturize the skin which helps maintain the natural barrier. Jojoba Oil is a lightweight oil that mimics the skin’s natural oils and provides moisture without clogging pores. Aloe Vera helps to calm and soothe the skin from environmental exposures. Other supporting ingredients help lock in the moisture to create a smooth surface and help strengthen the skin protective barrier.

Unsure? Let’s take the mystique out of skin care around the eye.

People get lost sometimes in knowing when and what eye cream to use. You can start using eye cream anytime as part of your daily skincare routine, in the morning and/ or at night. It should be applied after cleansing and toning, and just before moisturizing. Gently pat a small amount of eye cream around the orbital bone, avoiding direct contact with the eyes. This will ensure that the delicate skin around your eyes receives the necessary hydration and nourishment it needs.

Remember, consistency is key to see the visible differences in skin. Incorporating our eye cream into your routine will help maintain the healthiness of the skin’s appearance by keeping it hydrated and smooth, brighten dark circles, and improve the elasticity of the delicate skin.

So, the next time you’re considering your skincare regimen, don’t forget to give your eyes some extra love with a hydrating eye cream, preferably one that contains the powerhouse ingredient – hyaluronic acid. Your eyes will thank you!
