How To Choose An Eye Cream
It is important to choose a good eye cream because the eye area is sensitive and thin. The eyes are more susceptible to drying, so it is good to nourish them with a suitable cream. The ingredients you should pay attention to depend on the effect you want to achieve.
The best eye creams for under eye bags are those that contain caffeine, that brightens the skin around the eyes and narrows the blood vessels. The cream should also contain ingredients that nourish and moisturize the eye area such as aloe vera or hyaluronic acid. It’s also desirable for the cream to contain vitamins such as C and E.
It is best to keep any eye creams in the fridge and apply it in the morning. Also, a smart thing to do is to apply a light texture cream in the morning, and if you want to apply a cream in the evening, choose one with a richer texture.
