The eyes are a source of deep expression…but also a source of deep wrinkles and creases. Your eye area sees a lot of movement through the years, so it’s no surprise that they’re one of the first places to develop wrinkles. They also are very prone to discoloration in the form of dark circles under the eyes. The skin there is very thin and needs special care, so what should you look for in your eye cream to ensure you’re taking the best care of your eyes and combating those wrinkles and dark circles? Let’s discuss the ingredients you should look for when seeking out the best eye cream for wrinkles and dark circles.
Wrinkles and fine lines
Eyes are subject to dynamic wrinkles, and these eventually turn into static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those that show up with movement only. After years of being “folded,” and with the deterioration of collagen, the skin develops a permanent crease in those areas, called a static wrinkle. These are present at all times. While wrinkles and fine lines are inevitable as our skin ages, you want to hold off both and most certainly can take steps to do so.
Wrinkles and fine lines develop due to a loss of certain components of the skin. These include collagen and hyaluronic acid; each works differently. Collagen holds the skin together, keeping it taut and firm. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin supple and moisturized. Aging results in the decline of the production of both, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. Both can be supplemented externally. Look for either collagen (or peptides) or hyaluronic acid in your eye cream.
Another good restorative ingredient to look for in the best eye cream for wrinkles is plant stem cells. They play a role in helping connective tissue and have been shown in studies to help with the appearance of wrinkles such as crow’s feet.
What causes dark circles? These are primarily the result of thinning skin under the eyes due to aging. This renders the blood vessels under the skin more visible. So when it comes to dealing with dark circles, you’ll want to focus on what can plump up your skin: hydration! Hyaluronic acid shines as an ingredient again here, helping to give more volume to the skin, which helps to hide some of the blood vessels underneath.
Another ingredient to look for is peptides. They are sort of the precursor to collagen and are easily absorbed by the skin. Peptides are a must for helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
