Fine line and under eye wrinkles are early signs of aging. While it is true that our skin loses collagen as we age, that doesn’t mean that you have to accept worsening wrinkles. However, to minimize the appearance of wrinkles under your eyes, you can’t exclusively rely on your moisturizer. Here are four reasons you should add a high – quality under eye cream to your skincare regimen.

Eye Cream Is Formulated for the Delicate Skin Around Your Eyes

Fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes develop earlier than other wrinkles because the skin around your eyes is much thinner than the rest of the skin on your face. Because this skin is so much thinner, you need an eye cream that is specially designed to hydrate this thin, sensitive skin. Eye cream also helps reduce puffiness, making your eyes appear brighter, all the while lessening the appearance of under eye wrinkles.

The Skin Around Your Eyes Is Moving All Day Long

The muscles activated to blink (approximately 10,000 per day) are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to just how frequently your eyes are in motion. Add to that the use of muscles to squint, smile, frown, or cry, and it’s clear that your eyes get pulled around a great deal each day. Of course, let’s not forget the times we half-close our eyes to apply makeup and stretch them as we remove makeup. This causes additional wear and tear on the very delicate skin around your eyes.

The constant movement of the skin and muscles around your eyes makes it prone to stretching and leads to loss of hydration. To combat the effects of so much activity, a quality eye cream will nourish this delicate skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and under eye wrinkles.

Thin Skin Around Your Eyes Loses Elasticity Early

It’s an unfortunate reality that the thinner the skin, the less elasticity it has. Therefore, the extremely thin skin around your eyes will lose elasticity earlier in life than the skin on your cheeks, for example. As elasticity wanes, so does the production of collagen in women, which together can result in the early onset of crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles. To reduce the appearance of wrinkles under the eyes, consider using an eye cream which includes a unique anti-aging Stem Cell Complex. The Lavender Age Corrective Night Eye Cream, from Eminence, is a great product to help all skin types feel smoother and softer. It also reduces visible signs of aging, and the lavender scent provides calming aromatherapy as you unwind for the day.

Eye Cream Fills a Void Left by Lack of Pores Around Your Eyes

You may have noticed that you can’t see visible pores around your eyes in the same way you can see them on your nose, chin, cheeks, or forehead. That’s because the skin around your eye area doesn’t have them! While pores are a source of skin problems for many people, they actually serve a vital purpose. Your pores secrete sebum from your body’s sebaceous glands. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance that moisturizes and protects your skin. In other words, sebum is your body’s natural oil. Without sebum around the eye area, this sensitive, thin skin is without the nourishment that the rest of your face receives. An eye cream that is specially designed to target this thin skin serves as a replacement for the natural oil that is produced elsewhere on your face.
