Eyes are known to be the windows to the soul and one of the most important features on your face. So, why does it seem to be the most neglected part of our skincare regimens? Not anymore! Keep reading for our case as to why you should add an eye cream into your skin care routine.
What do eye creams do?
Eye creams primarily hydrate which is very important because of the lack of oil glands in the under eye area most of your hydration comes from your eye cream. Which as a result provides a more plumped effect therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, some eye creams even target specific concerns (such as darkness) that can be targeted with different ingredients that are not traditionally found in moisturizers (such as caffeine).
Why should I invest in an eye cream?
You don’t have as many oil glands under your eye as the rest of your face. This means you need to add back in that moisture. Not so fast! The skin around your eyes is much thinner and delicate which is why it’s so important to not use your regular moisturizer around the eyes. The ingredients used in moisturizers are not made for the under eye area which can be too irritating to such a fine area.
Which eye cream should I pick?
Just like serums and moisturizers eye creams come in different forms whether your looking to treat dryness, fine lines, dark circles, or puffiness there are tons of different formulations that will suit your individual needs and skin goals. Right this way for some of our favorite Eye Product Recommendations…
Instant Bright is the perfect eye cream for treating dark circles. If you’re already a SkinMedica junkie you will love this. We like to think of it as if HA5 and Lytera 2.0 had a baby–it’s that good. It has Caffeine and Resorcinol to correct hyperpigmentation supporting melanin balance to correct dark circles. While the hyaluronic acid provides maximum hydration soothing and minimizing fine lines.
TNS Eye Repair
As we all know, TNS is the gold standard of anti-aging so they made it into an eye cream! TNS Eye Repair contains human growth factors which is the key ingredient for smoothing the under eyes. It’s other key ingredient is Boron Nitride which is known to combat discoloration while helping to preserve a youthful appearance.

Sheer Tint Eye Triple Complex Broad Spectrum SPF 30
The perfect eye cream for a no-makeup pool day that will leave you looking bright and fresh faced has entered the chat. This product is chalk full of SPF to provide UV protection as well as a blend of peptides to provide maximum hydration. Our favorite part? Pigmentation is addressed via the tint and with the power house ingredient Albizia Julibrissin bark extract which is proven to help with pigmentation and puffiness.
