At what age should you start using an eye cream? The eyes are one of the first places on the face to show signs of aging. These signs can start as early as your 20’s. And even if your skin isn’t close to showing signs of aging, the eye area goes through some tough issues such as dark circles under the eyes and puffiness. These aren’t necessarily age related but can and do occur in your 20’s and can be remedied or lessened by using a good eye cream. Read on to learn the importance of eye cream and why you should start using a good eye cream as early as your 20’s.
The importance of eye cream
It’s good to understand why a special cream is needed for your eye area in the first place. The eye area is very thin and delicate compared to the rest of the skin on your face. It absorbs nutrients more easily; therefore, eye creams often contain lower concentrations of nutrients and other ingredients. At the same time, eye area concerns, such as dark circles and puffiness, are also often different from those on the rest of the face. So an eye cream will contain unique ingredients that help with these issues.
Why start using eye cream in your 20’s?
In general, it’s good to start using anti-aging products as early as your 20’s. This is even more important for the eye area since aging often shows there first. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s best to head off things like fine lines and wrinkles before they actually happen. Once dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that only show with movement) show up, it’s only a matter of time before they turn into static wrinkles…wrinkles that show even when your face is still. By keeping your skin well taken care of even before you develop fine lines or wrinkles, you are preventing worse signs of aging from developing.
How to choose a good EC to use in your 20’s
So what should you look for in an eye cream if you’re currently in your 20’s? While you may not need intense anti-aging ingredients like retinol, for example, some things can help anyone, no matter their age. The best EC will have a good hydrating ingredient. Look for a moisturizing cream…it can help combat many eye complaints. Antioxidants are also a good addition to any skincare product. These help reverse sun damage which leads to signs of aging; in other words, antioxidants can be thought of as the ultimate preventive ingredient!
