Why you should never skip eye cream


Even with a wealth of information about beauty products on the Internet, two of the most-searched-for terms include “Do eye creams really work?” and “What do eye creams actually do?”

So, whether you are tossing up buying a new eye cream or considering ditching the product from your skincare routine altogether – there’s something you should know; they do work!

“Our research has shown that skin around the eyes is the thinnest and driest on the face,” explained Dr. Frauke Neuser, head of scientific communications at Olay. “It is the most susceptible to the first signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to take extra care.”

This means a regular serum or moisturiser may not cut it when it comes to protecting the eye area because neither are formulated to target the delicate skin. Some face products could be too strong, irritating or aggravating the eye area.

“Eye creams are designed to spread and absorb really easily so you don’t have to rub or pull the sensitive skin around your eyes during application. The texture is different from full face moisturisers and serums to minimise migration into the eyes,” the skincare expert continued.

Dr. Neuser recommended checking out Olay Collagen Peptide24 Eye Cream, which contains vitamin B3 to help reduce the appearance of lines and smooth the skin around the delicate eye area. Some other great options to check out include TEMPLE SPA’s Windows of the Soul, which has been designed to treat dark circles, and Atomy’s THE FAME Eye Cream, made with green tea extract to soothe and hydrate.
