The Best Eye Creams With SPF to Try (Yes, Even If You’re Indoors)
In the interest of your skin, let’s just get right to the point. The answer to whether or not we need to be wearing SPF-packed eye cream is a resounding “yay,” cause…duh. If you haven’t been wearing SPF around your eyes, shame on you. Here’s why.
Broad-spectrum sunscreen that offers an SPF of 15 or higher is one of the best forms of skin protection out there, and it should be applied (and reapplied) daily from head to toe. You technically could extend your facial sunscreen to the eye contour area, but using a product that’s formulated specifically for eyes is an even better choice. Why? Because these formulas are less likely to migrate into your eye (don’t you hate when that happens?!) and most of them — the good ones, anyway — can help target other eye-specific concerns, like dark circles, puffiness and uneven skin tone. Ahead, we rounded up our favorite eye creams with SPF to try.
You’ll love the way the sheer, universal tint of this SPF 50 formula enhances your skin tone, while ceramides hydrate and smooth the entire eye area. It spreads easily without migrating into the eye, so don’t be afraid to get up close and personal in the surrounding crevices.
