Care For Your Peepers

Mar 5, 2011 by

The eyes are the first area to betray us and show our age. The key to keeping them youthful is to moisturize them, just adding an extra dose of moisture is going to keep the wrinkles at bay. Using your regular moisturizer around the eye area is going to help care for your eyes, but using one specifically designed for the delicate skin around your peepers will have the most benefit.

There are so many eye cremes on the market that all claim to do everything from erase your wrinkles to make dark circles seem invisible. If this seems to good to be true, it’s because it is. There are not any products that can do either of these things, but there are products that can soften the look of wrinkles, keep the skin firmer longer, and lighten dark circles.

The best way to navigate through eye cremes is to ignore the front of the box entirely, you want  to focus on the ingredients. Some if the best ingredients to look for are:

  • Hylauronic Acid – This draws moisture from the air and holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water
  • Retinol – This will stimulate collagen production and enhance the plumpness of the skin
  • Peptides- These aid in improving the  skin’s resilience, tone, and texture
  • Vitamins C and E – When combined these help stimulate collagen, they are also antioxidants

These are just some of the most common eye creme ingredients to look for, there are many more. You will also want to look for products that say they contain antioxidants, and other buzzwords like moisturizing and products containing SPF.

With that being said, it can still be difficult to pick out an eye cream, here are some of my favorites for any price range.

Price Range: Under $20

Price Range: Under $50

Price Range: Over $50

No matter what your budget is, there is an eye cream out there for you. With all of the advancements that are being made in the line of skincare, there is no reason not to take care of the eye area, your eyes will thank you!


  1. thanks for the information, i’m just curious.. is it advisable to use those products for people in their early twenties?? my friend’s planning to use wrinkle remover but i don’t think it’s ok because she’s still young.

    • It is advisable to start using them when you are young, however not necessary. The ingredients in most of the eye creams are going to help essentially slow down the aging process. Apply anything to the eye area is going to have a benefit, using more advanced moisturizers is going to have more of a benefit though.
