Things to Look For In an Anti Aging Eye Cream

Sep 8, 2008
The skin around the eyes is one of the most delicate parts of the face. The layer of skin, fat and oil glands is markedly thinner than in other parts of the face. While the rest of the face has a layer of fat that helps keep its supple and youthful appearance as well as fend off the effects of aging, the sensitive eye area is more prone to wrinkles. The different skin composition also makes the area around the eyes vulnerable to the harsh effects of pollution, sunlight, makeup application and removal, and especially aging. Furthermore, diet, alcohol consumption and smoking can affect the area as well.

It may sound cliche, but the eyes are indeed the windows to the soul. The eyes are the first to show signs of aging in the face. In general, people look at our eyes when we greet them. No one wants to greet the world with wrinkles, under-eye puffiness, dark circles and crow's feet. Because of these factors, it is very important to protect the area around the eyes. One of the best treatments to help protect the eyes from the abovementioned negative effects is to apply anti aging eye cream.

Anti aging eye creams are specially formulated to restore moisture and elasticity, smooth out fine lines, and reduce puffiness and dark circles. Most anti aging creams contains ingredients that minimize the damage of collagens. By providing moisture to the sensitive skin, the cream firms up the skin and reduce fine wrinkles and puffiness. More moisture means better skin texture. Eye creams also contain Vitamin A and D, to replenish those that have been lost to sunlight exposure.

Anti aging eye creams also consist of glycolic compounds and antioxidants such as Vitamin E, which also helps soothe tired eyes. Additional vitamins and minerals also help reduce wrinkles and keep the skin looking youthful and radiant. Most eye creams also contain hydroderm, which help the skin absorb collagen. Some special anti aging eye creams also contain all-natural products such as almond oil, sunflower oil, nutmeg oil and many more. The best eye creams include an SPF agent that protects the skin from damage caused by the UV rays from the sun.

There are many brands of anti aging eye creams available. To help you choose the best for your skin, here are some must-haves you should look for:

* Moisturizer - this keeps the skin looking youthful and radiant, and avoids that dull and lifeless look of dry skin.
* SPF agent - this protects the skin from UVB and UVA rays of the sun.
* Collagen building ingredients - these encourage skin renewal and allows the skin to plump up with collagen for a supple and youthful look.
* Soothing herbs - these herbs, such as lavender or chamomile, helps soothe the skin and reduce irritation caused by pollution and stress.

Ultimately, anti aging eye creams can only do so much in preventing the onslaught of age. The best way is to keep the body's systems clean by maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle. A healthy body and a happy disposition will surely liven up the windows to your soul.
