Why Eye Creams Are an Important Part of Your Skincare Routine

Like many people, you might be thinking: “Do I really need an eye cream?” - the answer is, yes you probably do! The skin around your eyes is around 7 times thinner than everywhere else, meaning it does a great job of showcasing when you’re run down or haven’t had enough sleep - not to mention fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the area most likely to get puffy, dry and sensitive, so it makes sense it needs a little extra TLC. 

Moisturisers and Eye Creams Are Different

Eye creams aren’t the same as moisturisers, they’re specially formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes. While moisturisers are designed to provide hydration and nourishment to your entire face, sometimes targeting specific concerns like dryness or ageing, an eye cream is lighter and gentler to avoid irritation. In other words, think of moisturiser as a healthy breakfast for your whole body, and eye cream as a targeted vitamin for your eyes.

Using one product for both your face and eye area doesn’t address the unique needs of your skin. If you want to protect the delicate area, target puffiness, reduce fine lines and get rid of dark circles then an eye cream should be part of your routine.
