How to Choose the Right Eye Cream?

An eye cream is normally quite safe for your eye area. Better choose a fragrance free eye cream, since they also tend to be more emollient than regular moisturizers.

Types of Eye Cream

There are 3 types of Eye Cream:

  • Day Cream: Creams designed to enhance the appearance of your eyes during the day. They usually reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
  • Night Cream: Creams designed to help repair and prevent further damage to your skin. They usually contain ingredients like Alpha hydroxy acid and retinol.
  • Non-Specific Cream: Creams providing extra moisture.

Tips on Choosing a Right Eye Cream

Make sure of what exactly your eye problem is, look for darkness-inhibiting ingredients and consider the potency and type of the firming ingredient when selecting an eye cream for yourself.

Common firming ingredients are:

  1. Alcohol and Caffeine can temporarily dehydrate the skin, making it appearing more taut.
  2. Alpha-hydroxy acids, vitamin C, retinol and copper can work under the skin to stimulate collagen growth.

Common darkness-inhibiting ingredients are:

  1. Vitamin K: has been shown to inhibit bruising. Researchers believe vitamin k helps to counteract dark shadows caused by too much blood flow and minor bruising under eyes.
  2. Kojic acid and Hydroquinone. Kojic acid and hydroquinone are skin-lightening agents, often found in bleaching and age-spot creams.

  • Reduces appearance of fine lines around the eyes.
