The Top 5 Eye Creams to Brighten

Eye Care with The Best Products

If you want to give your skin an extra boost, eye creams and serums are the desert-island must-haves of makeup artists everywhere. Pat them on in the morning before SPF or putting on makeup for best results. Formulas without any texturizers or fillers can be especially potent and powerful.

Our eyes are the first place on our face to show signs of sun damage or lack of sleep. With thin skin, not containing any smoothing oil glands, it’s a challenge for us to keep this area looking its best. For a temporary solution, eye creams—or gels, serums and oils—are an excellent way to restore balance in your complexion without much effort. 

Although topical treatments can offer temporary results, no cream alone is capable of permanently lifting, brightening, depuffing and plumping delicate crepiness around the eyes. To achieve more significant and lasting outcomes in this area requires a professional approach – such as Botox injections or fillers from qualified surgeons or dermatologists. On top of that surgical fat removal procedures are also available for those looking to make long-term improvements in this region.

Clean eye cream may be the way to go when considering a long-term approach, yet conventional versions have their own advantages in the short term. However, they come with some potential drawbacks such as endocrine disruptors and irritants right where your skin is thinnest- meaning that their effects can accumulate over time if not monitored carefully.

Eye cream should be used in the morning for maximum effect! It’s not only calming and de-puffing, but also hydrating your skin to diminish wrinkles. Additionally, eye cream is a must if you wear makeup– especially foundation, BB Cream or concealer –to make it look more natural and last throughout the day. Make sure that you give your eye cream few minutes before applying anything else on top of it to avoid smudging.
