The skin beneath the eyes is much thinner and hence more fragile than anyplace else on the body. It tends to show indications of dehydration and volume loss sooner. Studies reveal that the undereye area has fewer oil glands and collagen than the rest of your face, making it even more difficult to keep it consistently hydrated and plump. Other variables such as smoking, weariness from lack of sleep, and sun exposure, in addition to increased screen time, further damage your undereye area, resulting in dark spots or sunken eyes.
As a result, you will find a variety of eye creams in most beauty aisles, all claiming to make your eyes look brighter, younger, or more awake. Many of these gels and creams help transform the delicate undereye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and promoting tighter-looking skin.
Eye creams can be used to target the following areas:
- Puffiness under the eyes
- Dark circles
- Fine lines
