The Purpose Of Eye Gels/Creams

Eye CreamThere's no shortage of face wash creams and moisturizers on the market, and you may wonder whether there is any need to add eye creams to your beauty treatment routine as well. The short answer? Yes, there is.

The skin around your eyes is different from the skin on other parts of your body. That is because the skin around your eyes is very thin and sensitive in comparison to other skin areas. Regular creams designed for other parts of your body can have a harsher effect on the skin around your eyes. Skin care researchers recognized this fact, and realized the need for a category of cream that is designed especially for the skin around the eyes.

There are many ways in which eye cream helps your skin:

Reducing Fine Lines And Wrinkles

The earliest effects of age and fatigue on the skin show up on the skin around your eyes. The skin becomes less elastic with age as collagen levels drop, and finds it harder to bounce back to its original shape and texture after years of squinting, frowning, and working your eyes muscles during every waking moment. Eye cream helps reduce these effects and leaves you looking more youthful than ever.

Lightening Dark Circles

The darkened skin circles around your eyes are a result of many factors, from the genes you were born with, to damage from the sun and build-up of blood around your eyes. Sodium ascorbate and Niacinamide are both active ingredients found in eye creams, and they help thicken the skin and conceal eye circles over time.

Moisturizing The Skin


Because the skin around your eyes is thinner, it gets dryer than other parts of the skin more quickly. Ceramide and hyaluronic acid found in eye creams helps your skin retain water and become more elastic, able to bounce back to its original taut texture after being stretched all day long.

Reduce Eye PuffinessReducing Eye Puffiness

When excess blood and fluid builds up under the skin around your eyes, it makes the area look swollen and puffy. Ingredients present in eye creams help improve the circulation of blood under the skin. This reduces the swelling and makes your eyes look less puffy.

The problems mentioned above affect people of all ages and genders, and that is why everyone can benefit from the addition of eye creams to their skin care treatment routine.
