Eye creams are one of the most essential aspects of your skincare regimen, so it always amazes me to find that they are not always a common feature within people’s routines. Eye creams are great because you can reap their rewards, whatever your age. We spend hours of every day meticulously applying moisturisers and masks, making sure our complexions look their best. So, why would you not take the same amount of care with your eyes?
The eye area is one of the most delicate and sensitive areas of your complexion, so it is important to treat it with extra care and attention. You may be surprised to know that the eye area ages 5 to 10 years faster than any other area of the face. This is because the skin around your eyes is tissue thin and constantly folding on itself, this means that its absorption of vital moisture is dramatically increased. Because of this, your eyes are more likely to be prone to dryness than any other area of your complexion. And, as we all know, dryness is one of the leading factors that leads to the breakdown of collagen and therefore the development of wrinkles.
So, it is essential to use a specific cream for your eyes so that they can get the extra moisture boost they need. Especially in the winter months, one of the best ways you can care for your eyes is by finding an eye cream packed full of moisturising properties. Which is exactly why I love this Hyaluronic - C Perfecting Eye Cream, because it is full to the brim of moisture-loving ingredients that help to keep your eyes looking their best.
The Key Ingredients you need for Radiant Skin
The magic ingredient within this eye cream is Vegan Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate, popularly named the ‘Fountain of Youth’ within the beauty world. If I had to choose my favourite ingredient to include within my winter skincare routine, it would definitely be Hyaluronic Acid. Why? Because Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to bind up to 1000 times its own volume in water. Yes, you heard that right. So, if you are looking for an eye cream to help provide an intense surge of moisture, then this perfecting eye cream definitely has your back. Hyaluronic Acid helps to soften and smooth the skin, and is essential for keeping wrinkles at bay. As we age, our skin loses its ability to maintain its moisture levels, and this leads to a loss of firmness and plumpness which exaggerates any fine lines and wrinkles. So, if you are concerned about ageing skin around your eyes, then this eye cream could be your saviour.
This formula also contains Vitamin C in its Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate form, a far more stable Vitamin C derivate, which makes it kinder to your skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means that it can help your skin to repair itself following oxidative stress such as sun damage. Be warned though, this doesn’t mean that products containing Vitamin C can be used in the place of SPF, so always make sure to keep your skin protected. Vitamin C is also fantastic for helping to keep those dark, puffy circles at bay as it helps to even out the skin’s tone while also working to reduce inflammation.
To lock in all of these lovely ingredients and to help keep your skin packed full of moisture, this formula also contains Organic Argan and Jojoba Oils. These oils are fantastic at locking moisture into the skin, making sure it stays conditioned. When you use this eye cream, you notice the soothing effects of the Argan Oil right away, really helping your eyes feel more awake. Although sometimes creams containing oils have a tendency to be thick and take a while to absorb into the skin, that couldn’t be further from the truth with the Hyaluronic - C Perfecting Eye Cream. This is actually one of the most lightweight eye creams I have ever used, as it seems to absorb into the skin almost immediately.
Get the Most out of your Eye Cream
This eye cream is suitable for every skin type, and because of its lightweight consistency, this eye cream is the perfect addition to both your morning and evening skincare routine. One of the things I like most about this eye cream is how it provides the perfect base for my eye makeup. Its quick absorption makes this eye cream perfect for the early morning rush, helping you look your best every day.
When applying this cream, it is best to use a pea-sized amount on your ring fingers and to gently massage the cream in small circular motions into the skin around your eyes. It is important to use your ring fingers because they are able to give the perfect amount of pressure. Your other fingers are too strong, and are therefore more likely to tug the skin and accentuate wrinkles.
