As you age, your skin loses and slows its production of collagen, which can make the skin around your eyes droop and sag. According to “Allure” and “Marie Claire,” eye creams that contain ingredients such as retinol or peptides can help to increase the amount of collagen your skin produces. This will help to firm your skin, which will makes your eyes look more youthful and be less prone to undereye bags, wrinkles and sagging.

According to “Allure,” you should combine a retinoid cream with a light moisturizer when using it around your eyes, as this will lessen the chances of irritation.

This product promises to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging around your eyes, as well as improve the texture and tone of your skin.
