You haven’t got crow’s feet yet, so you don’t need an eye cream, right? Wrong. “It’s best to start a skin­care regime (in­clud­ing eye cream) in your 20s as pre­ven­tion, then move to an anti-age­ing regime in your 30s,” says eye sur­geon Sab­rina Shah-de­sai. Eyes are one of the first places to show signs of age­ing, but what­ever you want to com­bat, these prod­ucts prom­ise to de­liver.


“New for­mu­las such as gel serums add much-needed mois­ture and hy­dra­tion, boost­ing lu­mi­nos­ity while min­imis­ing puffi­ness and sag­ging in the area,” ex­plains skin ex­pert Ni­chola Joss.


“Use serums around the eye to boost ra­di­ance. They in­stantly brighten up your skin and work to min­imise any un­der­eye pig­men­ta­tion,” Ni­chola adds.


“A com­bi­na­tion of hyaluronic acid and an­tiox­i­dants such as vi­ta­mins C and B3 will tar­get the area. With reg­u­lar use, you will ex­pe­ri­ence long-term re­sults,” ex­plains Sab­rina.


“Creams en­riched with vi­ta­min C, retinols and growth fac­tors en­cour­age thick­en­ing of col­la­gen in an area where skin is del­i­cate and thin,” der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr An­nie Chiu says.


“Util­is­ing ‘smart’ tech­nol­ogy with a cock­tail of in­gre­di­ents like plum and al­gae ex­tracts will help di­min­ish lines, lift and smooth,” says Clin­ique’s Dr Tom Mam­mone.
