Do I need to use an eye cream?

The short answer is yes, the skin around the eyes is some of the thinnest and most delicate and has different pigmentation than the rest of the face.  It is this area that can show signs of stress, tiredness and ageing first. 

What is the goal of an eye cream? 

  • Protecting the skin around your eyes
  • Brightening
  • Reducing signs of aging
  • To deliver the same ingredients you use on your face and neck but gentle enough to be absorbed quickly and not to trigger any irritation.

What’s the difference between eye cream and a regular moisturizer?

Eye creams may be formulated with some of the same active ingredients as moisturizers, or even certain anti-aging products like retinol creams, but they’re made with lower doses or aren’t as potent. The reason is that the thin skin around the eyes absorbs better than the thicker skin on other areas of the face.

Basically, eye creams are just specially formulated moisturizers meant to be used on a specific area of skin.

When should you start using eye cream?

You’re aging every day; you should be anti-aging every day.   Eye cream should be a regular part of any skin care routine from your 20s.

And what about dark circles?

Dark circles begin as a result of inflammation triggered by UV exposure from the sun, free radical oxidation, stress, fatigue, and allergies.  These can be reduced by using eye creams as well as adjusting lifestyle factors — including drinking more water or staying on a fixed sleep schedule.
