What’s the best eye cream for your skin concerns? We created an easy illustrated guide to help you.
While most eye creams boast hydration and the reduction of wrinkles, it can be hard to know which one to choose for more specific issues. There are so many other things to consider when it comes to choosing the perfect eye cream for the particular problems you’re dealing with. Let’s break down four popular eye care products and why they are each good for four different concerns..
When it comes to dark circles, the Missha Misa Geum Sul Vitalizing Eye Cream goes hard to work at brightening sullen areas by utilizing the power of ingredients commonly found in traditional Korean herbal medicine. The combination of ginseng water, ginseng extract, reishi mushroom extract, and deer antler extract work together to bring life the undereye area and brighten it.
Gently tap the Missa eye cream under your eyes and around your eyes with your ring finger until it’s absorbed. Bonus: You can also apply the cream around your mouth to help erase smile lines.
The Enature Callus Phyto-regen Eye Serum was made to erase crow’s feet. It contains edelweiss flower extract which works to promote elasticity, while the heavy dose of hyaluronic acid works to brilliantly hydrate and plump up fine lines. What makes this eye product so effective at tackling fine lines is the fact that it has a concentrated serum-like consistency that allows it to seep into skin fast and get to work immediately.
This Enature eye serum comes with a really unique precise applicator. Simply pump one or two pumps around the eye area where you see fine lines and use your ring finger to gently tap in the product. You can also use this between your brows and around your mouth.
One of the main causes of puffiness is lack of sleep, so what you need to combat puffy eyes is a cream that contains ingredients that will energize the delicate skin in the area around your eyes. The Erborian Ginseng Total Eye contains ginseng extract, which shows up as little orange beads in the cream. These are mixed with hydrating shea butter to quickly go to work by perking up undereye area and delivering moisture.
Apply the Erborian Ginseng Total Eye by removing a pea-sized amount with a spatula and swiping it around your eye area. Gently tap in the cream with your ring finger.
When the cold weather hit and the freezing winds start to slap your face during your work commute, you may come home and see annoying dry patches around your eye area. This is when it’s time to break out the eye masks, a couple of great options are the Sally’s Box Friendly Collagen Eye Patch or the Botanic Farm Salmon Egg Hydrogel Patch. These patches stick to the contours of your eye area to really dig deep and infuse dry patches with moisture.
To apply, simply peel the patches off the adhesive and stick each one under each eye. Leave them on for 20 minutes, take a selfie, and gently peel them off. Lightly tap in the remaining essence.
All eye creams will offer sufficient hydration and relief for fine lines, but when it comes to attacking specific concerns, it’s important to pay close attention to the ingredients and find creams that contain similar ingredients to the ones we listed above for treating certain issues.
Also, it’s good to pay attention to the type of cream and vehicle you’re using to apply these ingredients. When it comes to fine lines, you’ll want a more concentrated formula, like the one you’ll find in the Enature serum, and when it comes to infusing moisture to severely dry areas, you’ll want to look for a moisture delivering method like the Sally’s Box Eye Patch that really works to seep hydration into the driest of skin.
