Eye Cream

Kiehl's Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate $41

Eye cream should be introduced into your skin regime in your early 20's.  An eye cream should hydrate, prevent and correct fine lines & wrinkles, correct dark circles.  Dot around your eyes, not too close to eyes and lightly pat in a upward motion. Choose a product that is meant for sensitive skin, as it will be used near your eyes.

Choose a tube or pump, not a jar. A jar risks contamination, whether using clean hands, loses its freshness and active ingredients become exposed to air, jeopardizing the effectiveness of the ingredients. Once the jar is opened, ingredients are exposed to air.  If you decide to purchase a jar, you may transfer the product into a airtight pump or use a toothpick to get product out.

  • A gel is perfect for oily, acneic, combination skin and a cream for normal, dry, aging skin. 
  • If you have dark circles look for a product with vitamin K, it strengthens capillary walls and helps diminish the appearance of abnormal capillaries. Antioxidants are beneficial to prevent aging and UV damage by fighting free radical activity. 
  • Free radicals form from environmental pollution, smoking, UV damage and poor diet. This activity creates signs of aging, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, loss of elasticity and collagen. Common antioxidants include vitamin c, green tea, copper, vitamin e, vitamin a, alpha lipoic acid, coQ-10. Don't forget to wear SPF 30 everyday.
