Are eye creams useful or just another unnecessary product to add to your skincare regime?

It's 2020 and skincare has evolved from the simple moisturiser in a jar to a wide range of specialised products which each take their place in essential parts of our skincare routines.

One of those additional steps are eye products. Many people swear by them, but why? And which one is right for you? Your questions will forever be answered in this email as we will make it easy to navigate through the abundance of ingredients, eye creams, gels and serums.


So why are there specialised eye products and what do they do?

Eye products have a thicker texture as they contain more essential oils than regular face moisturisers and contain specific ingredients such as Vitamin A, peptides and hyaluronic acid. These active ingredients treat a variety of concerns which are typical to the eyes. Dark circles, wrinkles of puffiness are just a few of the issues these ingredients can tackle.


Why should I use eye cream and not just a moisturiser?

The skin around our eyes is more fragile and prone to dryness and is quicker to show signs of ageing and fatgue. The constant movement of our eyes and squinting hasten the appearance of wrinkles. Fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams address some of these issues specifically.


How to choose the right eye cream?

It can be confusing to choose the right eye cream for you as it all comes down to multiple factors like environmental exposure, hereditary features, eye fatigue, medical conditions or just a lack of sleep - which we are all too familiar with.

So when you choose to treat your eyes with extra care it is important to invest in a brand that contains ingredients proven to deliver results for such a delicate area.
