Sooner or later, we all learn that there is no area of the face more vulnerable to aging than the area around the eyes. So often, fine wrinkles, eye bags and discoloration occur around the eyes. Because the area around the eyes is so thin, it’s not only more vulnerable to damage, it’s the first place we begin to notice changes. Most eye creams go through rigorous safety testing because of the potential for the product to enter the eye.

The tissues under the eyes have a flat gently tense tone in youth. Age and other factors can let the muscles sag and fat bulge. Some call this protrusion blepharochalasis and more commonly called under eye bag or baggy eyelid.
The facial eyelid muscles and skin hold this retro-orbital fat in place resulting in a youthful line starting from the eyelashes to the cheek. Gravity and the wear of time can make all facial tissues sag.

Under eye bags form from the gentle pressure on this lax muscle, ligament, and skin wall. In some cases there is extra fat behind the support wall creating the baggy eyelids. Sometimes there is a relaxed extra skin causing the eye bags. At other times the lid muscles are just thickened. Upper eyelid bags can be the result of drooping eyebrows.

Facial moisturizers will NOT turn back the clock on aging or replace eye creams; they are merely an effective way to alleviate dry skin. You should find and use a product that contains active anti-aging ingredients that does not add unnecessary oils to the skin. No eye product or cream should cause burning or stinging in the eye. If you experience these types of symptoms, discontinue use immediately.

Consumers think the more eye cream they apply, the better the product works; and the faster the results are seen. This is false. Use the amount directed on the product’s label because the manufacturer has taken into account the effectiveness of the active ingredients and the directions are given accordingly. The choices in eye creams can be overwhelming, especially in light of the fact that there are three main problems that these creams work to treat (dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness/ eye bags).

What Eye Creams Work Best?

The choices in eye creams can be overwhelming with over 150 products on the market today, and in light of the fact that there are three main problems that these creams work to treat (dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness). Effective products must be able to strengthen eyelid blood vessels; ability to smooth, firm, and delay skin cell aging; and ability to improve appearance of eyelid wrinkles and fine lines.

Your eyes are the first part of your face that others notice; the eyes are the windows to your soul. It is most important to look after the eyes and as you mature your eyes are affected by degenerating crow’s feet, wrinkles, puffiness and bags lines and dark spots. The best eye creams can prevent, maintain and rejuvenate the delicate skin surrounding these unique and beautiful areas of your face.

The skin around the eye is one of the most sensitive areas on the body. Because of this it is important to know how to properly apply eye creams. Proper application will reduce chances of irritation – including redness and swelling.

Only a tiny amount of any eye cream is needed to cover the area. Using the ring finger or pinkey – dot the eye cream along the edge of the bone surrounding the eye. Two dots of cream should be sufficient to cover the area. Gently pat (do not rub!) the cream into the skin – staying around the edge of the bone. Do not get closer! Eye creams, once absorbed into the skin, will spread. If the eye cream is applied to close to the eyelid – the cream will reach the delicate areas of the lash line and increase the risk of swelling and irritation.

Most eye creams contain instructions not to apply to the upper eyelid. If there were no such warnings, the proper way to apply it would be to the lower edge of the brow bone. Pat into the skin until absorbed. Any closer might result in irritation and swelling.
