Skin Care Regimen, Step 4: Eye Products
Eye products are an important step in the skin care regimen, because the skin around the eyes is delicate, thin, and sensitive; they’re also prone to fine lines and wrinkles. The eye area actually tends to be the first part of the face to show signs of aging. It may not seem important to use different products in this area, but it could make a world of difference to your appearance. It’s recommended to apply this product before you moisturize.
When looking for eye products, it’s important to look for oil-free products, as extra oil in this area could clog the pores and lead to styes and other eye problems. Common eye products include alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, which occur naturally in nature. They are known to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Other ingredients to include in your eye moisturizer are antioxidants and herbal extracts.Vitamin K can be effective at treating dark circles.
One product recommended by the physicians at Sanova Dermatology is Neocutis Lumière Bio-restorative Eye Balm with PSP. This is an intensive line smoothing eye cream with PSP, which helps reduce the appearance of under eye darkness, soothes and refreshes the eye area to help minimize signs of fatigue, and caffeine helps alleviate any puffiness. PSP and hyaluronic acid help firm and moisturize.
