I have a lot of girls and ladies around me. Some of them are in their 20s some are in their 30s while some have crossed 40. There are girls who take great care of their skin and I appreciate it very much. They avoid oily food, they regularly cleanse and moisturize their skin. They use sunscreen to protect their skin from sun. Many of them use anti-ageing night creams to delay signs of ageing and stay young for long.

Well, we all want to stay young and put a lot of effort in looking young. Can you tell me which part of your face starts showing signs of ageing at first? Yes, its your eyes. The skin around your eyes will start showing signs of ageing much before your lips or cheeks. Girls can start noticing fine lines and wrinkles around eyes even in their early twenties.

The skin around our eyes is very delicate and they lack oil glands. It is fragile and prone to dryness. If we go by the facts then our eyelid has the thinnest skin on our body. Also, due to constant movement of eye muscles this skin gets stretched and starts showing lines, wrinkles or sagging skin. You may also notice dark circles and puffiness around eyes which make it look really unattractive.

Why Do You Need An Eye Cream

All the problems we just talked about can be addressed by a good eye cream. The purpose of eye cream is to provide much required nourishment to the skin surrounding our eyes and keep them tight and firm and delay the signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin under eyes etc. Eye cream works to maintain the elasticity of skin around your eyes.

Eye creams can also reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness and thus will make your eyes look more beautiful.

How Does Eye Cream Works

A good eye cream is equipped with antioxidants, retinol, Vitamin C, Ceramide and hyaluronic acid that boosts the collagen production of our skin and makes the skin around eye tight. Eye creams help regain the elasticity of the under eye skin.

Eye cream moisturizes the skin around eyes and prevents water loss. Eye cream reduces puffiness and dark circles.

At What Age You Should Start Using Eye Cream

Now that we have known the importance of eye creams and how they work you might want to know what is the best time to start using eye cream for maximum benefit.

There isn’t a fixed age at which you should start using an eye cream. If you have very dry skin then you should start using it in your early 20s. Also, if people with dark circles or puffiness should start using an eye cream. We all know prevention is better than cure. So, I would suggest everyone should start using an eye cream in their early twenties, that would slower the clock. You can start using an eye cream in your late 20s or 30s but most of the damage has already been done. You can already notice fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. Product might claim to reverse all the damage and lift your skin but that’s not 100% true. They cannot fully reverse the ageing.

So, the bottom line is start using an eye cream in your early 20s.

How to Buy an Eye Cream

Market is full of eye creams and companies making high claims like they will reverse all the ageing signs around eyes and completely disappear fine lines and wrinkles etc. but you have to be very careful while buying an eye cream. Do the eye creams work? Yes, but only the right ones.

You need to consider your skin type and choose a product with maximum benefit and minimum irritation or inflammation. Avoid the products with synthetic fragrance, buy a non-fragrant eye cream with ingredients like retinol, Ceramide, hyaluronic acid, kojic acid, Sodium ascorbate, antioxidants, etc . It should protect your eyes from sun damage during day and hence it should have SPF of 25+.
