More delicate than the rest of your body, the skin around your eyes can be the first to show multiple signs of aging. Wrinkles, fine lines and sagging can plague your eyelids as you get older. Treating your eyes with a gentle yet effective cream will firm the skin, provide a lifting action and even-out your skin’s texture and tone. Daily application of a product can help to make your eyes look younger and brighter.
Prevage Eye Advanced Anti-Aging Serum
To protect your eyes against environmental damage and provide your lids with the lift they need, “Allure” magazine recommends Prevage Eye Advanced Anti-Aging Serum. This product contains an antioxidant called idebenone, which helps to shield skin from harmful free radicals. It also utilizes soy protein to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and a blend of peptides that work to increase collagen and firm up your skin. The serum promises to reduce the look of age spots and other discolorations on your lids, as well as minimize any puffiness, which will help to make your eyes look more awake. The company states that when 105 women applied this product, 97 percent felt the appearance of their eye skin was enhanced.
Clarins Sun Eye Contour Care Ultra Protection SPF 30
While sunglasses help to shield your eyes from UV rays, added protection from a sunscreen will help to prevent a greater amount of sun damage. “More” magazine suggests using Clarins Sun Eye Contour Care Ultra Protection SPF 30, a product that has been formulated to both combat eye problems and provide sun protection. It contains a blend of plant-based ingredients such as senna, olive, pea and baobab, and it claims to treat and prevent fine lines and other signs of aging all around the eyes and lids. The cream’s mineral filters work to shield your eyes from UVA and UVB rays without stinging your eyes or causing them to tear up. Dawn Raffel, the editor-at-large of “More,” states that she has sensitive eyelids, but that this cream did not irritate her skin.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex
“Allure” suggests taking care of eyelid problems while you sleep by applying Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex. This product promises to encourage the reparation of skin cells during the night, which will help decrease the look of wrinkles and other signs of aging like bagginess, dark circles and discolorations. Dermatologist Heidi Waldorf states that the product’s hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant, which seals in hydration and helps to repair skin damage. The company claims that this serum will neutralize up to 90 percent of the free radicals that come in contact with your eyes, thereby stopping the damage before it occurs. It promises to make the skin all around your eyes and lids look and feel nourished and refreshed.
