Hello my lovelies, we are on a journey to help you and your skin. If you have made it this far, you already look fabulous. If you are brand new, feel free to check out the other Skincare Battle Parts 1-3.
So today we venture into an area, that is often neglected, and sadly isn’t something people focus on until it’s almost too late. Your beautiful eyes; the windows to your soul. The sensitive skin around your eyes needs to be treated differently than that on the rest of your face.
Why do we need to use a special cream for our eyes, won’t my regular moisturizer be enough? Short answer, No. Longer answer, the skin around your eyes is thinner and shows signs of aging rather quickly. Since it is prone to dryness and is more fragile you need to have an eye cream, that isn’t too heavy, but is designed to help the skin around your eyes retain moisture and fight fine lines and wrinkles.
So with all of the products out there, which eye cream is the best? You need to determine how you want your eye cream to perform. Will it be hydrating, anti-aging, or eliminate dark circles and puffiness?
A popular eye cream that helps with hydration is, Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme. This product vows to target fine lines, reduce the look of dark circles and support natural collagen production. The product actually delivers what it promises to you. At a price of $39 USD, you can purchase it, at retailers or online at http://www.olehenriksen.com.
If you are more focused on eliminating your dark circles, you may be interested in a different eye cream. L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel, is a popular option for dark circles and de-puffing. This product offers a roller ball applicator and you can gently pat in the excess product. Perfect for dry, mature skin as well. At a price of $20 USD available at most department stores, it’s easily available and not going to hurt your bank balance too much.
Voted 2021 Best Drugstore Eye Cream for Anti Aging, and 2020 Anti-Aging Award Winner, check out Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream. This product is made with retinol, and formulated for use around the eyes so it will be gentle and not cause irritation while erasing those fine lines. At a wallet friendly price, this product is available at Ulta.com for $27.99 USD.
There are numerous brands out there and formulas for your beautiful eyes. Find one that works for you, and always consult with your doctor if you are changing any regimen to your skin. Do not go against your doctors orders and recommendations.
Be strong, be beautiful, be you
