One of the first places that patients start to notice visible signs of aging is around their eyes. As you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and show damage in the form of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes (crows feet). Luckily, with a combination of Botox and eye creams, you can soften those wrinkles and improve the skin around your eyes overall. To ensure that you get the most out of your eye cream, look for one with these anti-aging properties. Read on to learn more.
Vitamin C isn’t just something you should take if you have a common cold. In fact, Vitamin C is also good at healing and protecting your skin from sun damage. Look for an eye cream that has Vitamin C built in— your skin will notice the big difference.
Retin-A is one of the best ingredients used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. By targeting the top few layers of your skin, ingredients like Retinol work to slough them off and replace them with newer, more rejuvenated skin in the process. When using an eye cream with retinol, make sure to not get it too close to your eye because it can cause permanent eye damage.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Alpha hydroxy acids can be found in a variety of skin products including eye creams. By breaking down the glue-like bond that damaged skin cells has, alpha hydroxy acids help to repair the skin and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles in the process. Additionally, alpha hydroxy acids also help your skin to retain more water which makes it more hydrated.
