Do You Need To Use An Eye Cream?

The answer is yes, of course! And here is the science behind it.

The skin around your eye area is 10x thinner than the rest of your face. This is why many of us will notice aging in that area first.

Fine lines, crowsfeet, dark circles, sagging - all of these are signs of aging that we can slow down with the right products and care techniques. 

So why won’t my face cream work?

Being that the eye area is so much thinner than the rest of the face, this means that this area has a different absorption rate than other areas.

Have you ever noticed small whiteheads around the skin near your eyes? These are called milia and they can be a direct result of you applying your face cream to this delicate skin.  

Milia are miniature cysts that are just beneath the surface of the skin making it difficult to extract compared to a regular blemish. Why do they occur? When we apply something that is too heavy for the delicate eye area (i.e. your regular face cream), the oils will clog, resulting in milia. 

However, if you skip moisturizing the area completely you can still end up with the same problem as your skin will over compensate by creating more oils leading to milia. Not to mention, you will experience even faster aging as a result of giving this area no love. When you introduce an eye cream, your milia will eventually dissolve on its own.

Eye cream is formulated specifically for the skin around the eye using ingredients to target common eye concerns such as fine lines, sagging, and darkness. 

Here are some of our faves!

Sahajan Radiance Eye Cream: Packed with Vitamin C, this eye cream uses an Ayurvedic blend of ingredients that will both brighten & hydrate the eye area.
