What is the dif­fer­ence be­tween your eye cream and the cream you put on the rest of your face?

Sharp - - STYLE -

A bet­ter ques­tion is: what makes the skin around your eyes so special that it de­serves its own cat­e­gory of cream? First, it’s thin­ner than the skin on the rest of your face and gets a lot of squeez­ing ac­tion from your eye mus­cles ev­ery time you smile or squint, mak­ing it more sus­cep­ti­ble to wrin­kles. It also doesn’t have oil glands like the rest of your face, so it can dry out faster, which also causes it to age faster. Last, it’s more sen­si­tive. To deal with all of this, eye creams have more emol­lients, which help smooth out the wrin­kles, tend to be richer, and are for­mu­lated to be more sen­si­tive. Lab Se­ries Age Res­cue + Ther­apy,
