Eye Creams and Moisturizers

Eye Creams and Moisturizers

What it is and what it is for?


Eye moisturizer is a cream that helps people who suffer a lot from the lack of hydration and the fragility of the small vessels that irrigate the eye area, which is the most sensitive, fine and delicate part of the face and should be treated with specific care.

The main problems encountered are wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, dark circles, bags and bumps.

The cream serves to repair the fragility presented in this area and the continuous use provides an anti-wrinkle function, which reduces and prevents the expression lines.

So it is important to treat the eye contour with moisturizers to prevent and help fight these problems.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Retinol, one of the most popular ingredients in anti-aging cosmetics. It is a molecule derived from vitamin A, which is a scientifically proven substance as one of the most powerful weapons against aging.

AHA and BHA, acids derived from fruits that have rejuvenating properties. The most common, in beauty, is glycolic acid with strong skin regeneration power. They are good ingredients for normal to dry skin with sun damage or scarring because they help to hydrate and improve collagen production.

Vitamin C, rich in rejuvenating actives, is proven to have a role in increasing collagen production, ie, reducing wrinkles.

Vitamin E, a common vitamin in most cosmetics, from shampoos to creams or scrubs.

Resveratrol, the most powerful of the antioxidants and, although it has been known for some years, it is only recently that the cosmetics industry has given it prominence.


Which types exist and what are their differences?

The format of the most used packaging is in jars and the size varies from 15ml to 30ml.


What to take into account when choosing an eye cream and moisturizer?


No moisturizing product should be used, the composition and characteristics must be taken into account.
Specific moisturizers have anti-wrinkle properties, as well as antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, among others.

There are several facial moisturizers that cannot be used in the eye area, precisely because the skin is more sensitive.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


Whatever the type of moisturizer, the application has to be as smooth as possible so as not to harm it in the slightest. You should not rub the moisturizer, but apply it gently.

You have to let the product absorb before proceeding with the routine. It can be used day and night to guarantee the best results.

Some moisturizers have an applicator, but most are to be applied with your finger, and you should have a massage in that area.

To help deflate, you can put the cream in the refrigerator before using.


What are the pros and cons of using an eye cream and moisturizer?


Eye moisturizers improve the condition of the skin in the eye area, since it is effectively hydrated and smoother, but we must also take into account the disadvantages.

In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.

On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the care, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: moisturizes the skin; prevents dryness of the skin; maintains moisture in the skin; revitalizes and regenerates the tissue; improves the luminosity of the skin; neutralizes free radicals; prevents skin blemishes; prevents premature aging.
