Do Eye Cremes Really Work?
With more and more products available in the market today, it’s easier to get confused about which one to use.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers do sell items that are not quite effective. And this leads people to believe that skincare products are just a scam, especially eye crèmes.
The skin around the eye area greatly differs from the skin on the rest of your body. It is the thinnest and the most delicate. It is far more sensitive to pollutants, sun damage and allergens than the rest of your body.
One way to tell if a person’s skin has been damaged by the sun is that the skin around their eyes is extremely wrinkly and saggy.
That’s why taking care of this area requires more than just moisturizers. Eye cremes are essentially modified moisturizers, and for a very good reason. Because this area does not produce any oil, eye cremes have special emollients that are different from facial moisturizers.
These emollients soothe the area and have fewer additives than facial moisturizers. Eye cremes have also been formulated, tested and approved by ophthalmologists to be safe to use around your eyes.
Facial moisturizers do not have that stamp of approval. You may have noticed reputable facial moisturizers with warnings not to apply it close to the eyes.
Yes, eye crèmes do work. It’s just a matter of knowing which one works best for you.
