4 Ways to up your eye care game (while taking years off your face)
Taking care of the windows to your soul is a lifelong effort — your anti-ageing eye care should begin in your 20s as prevention is always your best bet, rather than scouring for solutions once you hit your 40s. While a healthy lifestyle does work wonders to your eye area (let's be honest, no eye cream can beat the glorious effects of a good night's sleep), add these to your skincare routine if you're looking for a reliable fix to your undereye wrinkles, puffiness and crow's feet.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl
Weekends call for an indulgent night in with an eye and face mask in place. Try Lancôme's first ever instant illuminator eye mask that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while illuminating your eye contours. The bio-cellulose sheet is infused with an eye serum that has the same probiotic extracts as Lancôme's new Génifique Yeux Eye cream formula. Leave it over your peepers for 10 minutes and wait for its miraculous results thereafter.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix
Take the time to pamper your eyes with Estée Lauder's new formula that aims to give eyes a wide-open look. Its skin-strengthening formula has a concentrated infusion of hyaluronic acid to nourish your eye area while minimising the appearance of wrinkles, lines and dark circles. For a sensorial experience, gently roll the massaging applicator in a 360° circle under each eye and above the lid for three times, then finish your routine by patting the formula with your finger until it completely absorbs into your skin.
Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Lift Eye Cream
Go with a holistic approach with this new anti-ageing eye cream from Neal's Yard Remedies. Its signature Frankincense Active Phyto Complex helps to protect your eye area from environmental stressors that accelerate skin ageing, while a blend of green tea caffeine and organic green coffee seed oil works wonders if you've got the most stubborn dark eye circles.
In case you've got sensitive eyes...
If your eye area is extremely delicate, give REN's Evercalm Eye Serum a go. Made for sensitive eyes, it has botanical extracts that help with anti-inflammation alongside combating swelling, redness and itchiness. The best part is its lightweight, fluid texture that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
