"Do I need eye cream?"
It's a common question so many of us ponder going through beauty aisles and online search results trying to find the products that best suit our specific skincare needs.
The truth of the matter is that, yes, you could technically use your regular serums or anti-aging products for the targeted area underneath the eyes. But the face on your skin isn't the same in every area. For maximum results, you use an eye cream because they're meant for the most sensitive areas of your face. There are specific characteristics of the eye area that make it especially sensitive, and so there are certain ingredients in eye serums, such as our Eye Serum with Vitamin C, that are designed to work more effectively in that area.
The under-eye area is the thinnest skin on the entire body, during waking hours, the skin is subject to constant movement due to natural blinking, and there are relatively fewer oil producing glands on the eyelid skin making it more prone to drying, allergy, and irritation. An eye cream differs from a regular moisturizer in that it is specifically formulated for the thin, drier, more delicate skin of the eyelid. Eye creams, furthermore, are generally more hydrating than regular facial moisturizers.
Eye serums are most effective when applied after any serums, but before moisturizer (and then sunscreen, if this is for the daytime.) We recommend applying it both in the morning and night as part of your skincare routine to keep the sensitive area healthy and smooth.
