Do I Need An Eye Cream?

Do I Need An Eye Cream?

If you have ever wondered if you actually need an eye cream in your skincare routine, then the answer in our opinion is yes. Eye creams can offer so much to help the skin around the eyes, which is a delicate area of the face which makes it susceptible to signs of ageing. Of course it is never as simple as a yes or no answer. The key criteria is to use a good product like our Eye Cream Complex. It benefits the skin around eyes as it is a kind natural product that is filled with lots of reviving ingredients.

There seems to be two schools of thought on eye creams. One is that they are an absolute essential and the other is that they are not worth the money, and a face cream can be used on the eye area for the same job. At Nakin we are passionate about producing the best natural skincare products and we believe an eye cream is an important part of a daily skin routine. This is especially after the age of 25, when skin benefits from the hydrating protecting properties of an eye cream. We look at the three main reasons that we recommend using an eye cream below. Of course not all eye creams are created equally, so use a high-quality one like our natural eye cream that is packed with amazing plant extracts, to help the skin around the eyes look as good as it can naturally.

  1. A face cream will not do the job of an eye cream as the skin around the eyes is quite different to that of the rest of our face. It is much thinner and more delicate. This means that using a cream that is too thick and rich will weigh the skin down, which can cause sagging over time.
  2. An eye cream really helps with skin age resistance and correction. This is all about the ingredients contained in the actual eye cream, which is why it is important to use a good one. Our anti-ageing eye cream is enriched with actives that are full of vitamins, as well as offering skin rejuvenation and line smoothing.
  3. The skin around the eyes has different hydration requirements than on the rest of our face, as it lacks sebaceous glands. This is why dry skin around the eyes is such a common issue, especially as we age. So, using the best eye cream keeps the area looking soft, fresh and bouncy.

The delicate skin around your eyes is often the first to show signs of ageing and fatigue, making eye cream an essential part of your skincare routine. The thinness of this area makes it more susceptible to fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. Eye creams are specially formulated to target these issues with potent ingredients that hydrate, firm, and brighten the skin. Regular use of an eye cream can help improve skin elasticity, reduce puffiness, and minimise the appearance of dark circles, ensuring you maintain a youthful, rejuvenated look. Incorporating an eye cream into your regimen can provide that extra layer of care that general facial moisturisers might miss.

In addition to targeting specific eye concerns, eye creams also provide essential hydration to the delicate skin around your eyes. This area is prone to dryness due to a lack of oil glands, making it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. Good natural eye creams like ours contain hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and plant oil ceramides that can help plump and nourish the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Moreover, eye creams can also help protect your eyes from environmental stressors such as pollution with the vitamins and minerals in the formula. These can neutralise free radicals that can cause damage to the skin. They also act as a barrier between your skin and external aggressors, keeping your delicate eye area fresh and healthy.

Additionally, many eye creams like ours also have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce puffiness and soothe tired eyes. This is especially helpful for those who experience puffiness. The calming effect can provide instant relief to the under-eye area, making you look well-rested and refreshed.

Some people do not like to use an eye cream as they feel that it causes their concealer to spread, and makeup not to sit properly. The trick to this is to only use a small amount and give the eye cream a couple of minutes to settle in before applying concealer and other makeup. The best way to use an eye cream is to dab a small amount on the pad of each ring finger, and then gentle dab the finger pads all around the orbital bone surrounding the eye. This means the area is not overwhelmed or damaged, and the product lasts longer. The application needs to be gentle, and the dabbing action also acts as a little pick me up for the skin around the eyes. Use them twice daily in the morning and evening. Always apply eye cream before a face cream, as if applied after a face cream it may prevent the eye cream actives reaching some areas of skin.

Of course, when we talk about eye creams, we need to be clear that they are not a miracle cure. They cannot take a deep wrinkle and smooth it completely, or banish dark circles entirely. However, they can do a lot to help and improve the area. Also bear in mind that the skin around the eyes can be quite sensitive, so always use a good eye cream for sensitive skin like Nakin’s, that is retinol and fragrance free.  If you would like to buy Nakin’s award-winning eye cream, then you can purchase this cruelty free eye cream here.
