We all know the importance of moisturizing our skin. But what about the delicate skin around our eyes? Is it necessary to invest in a separate eye cream? Isn’t a regular moisturizer good enough?
As your Beauty Expert, I’m here to tell you that you need an eye treatment!
Why You Need an Eye Treatment
Let’s start with the basics. Moisturizing creams are great for our skin, but they’re too heavy for the fragile skin around the eyes. The skin around your eyes is different from the rest of your face. It’s thinner and more delicate, which means it needs to be treated differently. That’s why eye treatments are formulated to moisturize the thin skin around the eyes without weighing it down.
Eye Cream, Gel, or Serum?: Choosing the Eye Treatment for Your Skin
Not all eye treatments are created equal! There are eye serums, eye gels, eye creams – and all are different! They’re all designed to moisturize the skin around the eyes, but they each have their own benefits.
Here are the differences you need to know:
- Eye serums – Typically light in texture and quickly absorbed by the skin. Best for targeted treatments.
- Eye gels – Cooling and refreshing, making them ideal for puffy eyes.
- Eye creams – Rich and thick with moisture. Perfect for dry or mature skin.
It’s important to use the one best suited for your skin. But no matter what, you’re going to want an eye treatment with retinol, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, peptides, soluble collagen, and/or ceramides. These ingredients will help the skin around your eyes look youthful for longer!
Pro-Tip: Don’t skimp on quality here. Yes, you can find cheaper options at the drugstore, but they won’t be nearly as effective as high-quality eye treatments with ingredients like anti-aging stem cells or multi-molecular hyaluronic acid, which are much more effective at penetrating the skin around the eyes.
Skin Care Alternatives: Natural Beauty Tips for the Eyes
Skin care is holistic, so if you haven’t found an eye treatment you like yet, try some of these easy (and free) remedies you can try at home:
- For dark circles under the eyes, try multivitamins, more sleep, and more water
- Stop washing your face with soap – it could be drying out the skin around your eyes even more
- Add more collagen rich foods to your diet
- Drink more green tea
- Avoid eye treatments with PUFAs – polyunsaturated fats that speed up aging in the skin
So Do You Really Need an Eye Treatment in Your Routine? YES!
Yes – you really do need to be using an eye treatment every day and night! Moisturizing creams are just too heavy for the skin around your eyes and can even cause long-term damage. Again, eye treatments are specifically formulated to not weigh down the thin skin around our eyes.
