Why I Chose Eye Cream to be Part of my Beauty Routine

Do you have a beauty routine or are you someone who doesn’t care what happens to their skin? Having radiant skin is something you need to work hard for it’s health and continuously maintain. Thus, having a skin care routine in place is of utmost importance. There are different parts of your skin that easily develops wrinkles and one them is the skin around your eyes. While some individuals swear by their favourite eye cream from The Face Shop, others forgo eye creams altogether. To discover why I couldn’t live without my favorite eye cream, simply continue reading.

Why I chose eye cream to be part of my beauty routine:

1. I want to prevent fine lines and wrinkles

One of the main reasons why I religiously apply anti aging eye cream on a daily basis, is that I want to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I started applying eye creams when I graduated high school as my mother told me that it’s never too early to start taking care of my skin.

My mother has healthy, youthful skin for her age and doesn’t have obvious deep set wrinkles, despite her age, I decided to follow in her footsteps and to invest in my first eye cream at 18.

2. Eye creams are packed full of collagen

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. Collagen is responsible for our skin’s elasticity and can create firm, youthful skin. Luckily eye creams are packed full of collagen, so as I age, I’ll be able to supplement my skin’s collagen, which will decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Eye creams can reverse minor sun damage 

I also love the fact that most eye creams can actually reverse minor sun damage. So if you love spending time exploring the great outdoors and taking part in adventurous activities such as swimming, hiking and running, it’s well worth investing in a trusted eye cream.

As I travel on a frequent basis and spend a lot of time in tropical locations, I find traveling with my trusty eye cream a lifesaver. After spending an action packed day exploring a new destination, I’ll be able to apply my eye cream under my eyes in order to reverse any minor skin damage that I may have subjected my skin to over the course of my day.

4. Eye creams quickly address dark circles

If you’ve ever woken up after a hard week with dark circles under your eyes, you’re not alone. Thankfully I found that I could effectively treat my dark circles by using an eye cream. So if you’re worried about going to work with panda eyes, it’s well worth investing in a good quality eye cream as soon as possible. As you’ll be amazed at how quickly eye creams can address pesky dark circles.

5. Eye creams contain ingredients which can stop your skin from losing water

As you age your skin will start to lose water, which will cause your skin to start looking dry, dehydrated and wrinkly. However, many eye creams contain hyaluronic acid and ceramide, which can effectively prevent your skin from losing water.

6. My eye makeup looks great when I use an eye cream 

I also use my eye cream as a primer for my under eye area. When I apply foundation and concealer under my eyes, I notice that it looks bright, wrinkle free and even.

So if you’ve never used an eye cream before, it’s well worth taking a leaf out of my beauty book and purchasing your first eye cream today. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
