Eye Cream

The eye area is one of the first places on the face to show signs of fatigue and aging, so it makes sense there are products specifically dedicated to it. Studies show that eye creams help minimize common concerns like reducing the appearance of puffiness, dryness, dark circles and under-eye bags. Some eye cream formulas even defend against the UV rays that speed up the aging process and escalate these concerns by including SPF. While facial moisturizers can hydrate the area and provide replenishing benefits, eye creams have concentrated formulas with ingredients targeted to the delicate skin around the eye. These ingredients include peptides, ceramides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, caffeine, retinoids, ferulic acid, chamomile and vitamins. The Kieh’s Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Eye Cream uses niacinamide and collagen peptide. This formula lifts the brow bone area, smooth the eyelid, firm the outer corner to minimize crow’s feet and fine lines, and depuff the under-eye. Since the skin around your eyes is more fragile than the rest of your face, it’s important to be gentle when applying eye cream. Using the ring finger, your weakest finger, to lightly tap a pea-sized amount into the contour of your eyes (don’t forget the brow bone!), is the preferred method of application.
