Our eyes are described as the windows to the soul, yet they are often the first place that we see the ravages of daily life. The delicate area around our eyes is one of the first places that will demonstrate our ageTaking a leaf from my Mother’s book, I have always believed in prevention rather than cure and have used eye cream for as long as I can remember because it protects that sensitive layer of skin. Yes, we all know that youth is a state of mind. We also know that our faces reflect our youth, so it is essential to use an eye cream. Like a knight in shining armour, this light protective barrier will help to diminish fine lines, lighten dark circles and help to pack up those bags for good! You could be walking around aged 20 with an eye story that reads like a 60 year old. Sun damage, wind, travelling and computer screens all play major roles in damaging the skin under our eyes. Did you know that if you wear contact lenses or glasses you are more at risk of ageing quicker? So, don’t wait until you wake up one day and realise that your face is changing, act now and the next time you look in the mirror, reflecting back will be the face that you can relate to!
Here are 3 of the best eye creams to help protect the most fragile feature of the face.
- I used the Boots Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Eye Cream for 30 days. This eye cream is supercharged by Matrixyl 3000 Plus™ and safeguards the delicate area around the eyes. This protective slightly tinted cream disguises dark circles and fine lines. I can see why this is a cult beauty buy and I’ll buy this beauty must-have again. Priced at £17.00, available nationwide at boots.com
2. A good eye cream or serum is of the paramount of importance for the d
elicate eye area. Now, remember the knight in shining armour that I was telling you about? This is it! The Hylamide SubQ Eyes Advanced Serum 15ml £27.00 from DECIEM.com The Abnormal Beauty Company,really keeps eyes looking youthful and toned and is a new hero in beauty to look out for. A high-strength serum concentrate that uses a wide array of peptides, plant saccharides and active technologies to rehydrate the fragile eye area. This really is an extraordinary technology that offers visible tightening of the under-eye area both immediately and in the longer term. It took A-list beauty brand DECIEM three years to make the SubQ Eyes Advanced Serum and guess what? It was well worth the wait! I’m hooked!
3. Eye creams are designed to be a certain texture which is richer than serums but not too much to overload the eye area. You’ll love the celebrity beauty brand Dermalogica Multi-Vitamin Power Firm. The velvety texture creamy balm helps to control ageing around eyes withits powerful firming complex. Seaweed Extract, Vitamins A, C and E, plus a healing shield of Organic Silicones, protect against free radical damage.
