The absolute best eye creams for every age
It’s that time again, when the effects of holiday party hopping are beginning to show on our faces—particularly under the eyes, where the skin is thinnest. “It’s where we see signs of aging more readily,” says New-York-based dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman, adding that it’s crucial to proactively treat crow’s feet, bags and puffiness.
Though many of us feel that eye cream isn’t a skincare essential, principal scientist at Olay Dr. Frauke Neuser agrees that it’s important to be proactive. “The area is so unique and has its own needs. That’s why it makes so much sense to treat it differently and early with a special product,” she says. “It’s not something to start in your 40s when you already have crow’s feet.”
This delicate skin differs from person to person and changes as we age, which can make choosing the most effective treatment for your needs feel like a daunting task. Read on to understand more about which hero active ingredients will best suit your needs. Whichever formula you choose, diligence is key. “It’s important to keep using it,” says Neuser. “You need to be consistent.”
