It’s all about the eyes

You might invest heavily in a beauty regime to keep your complexion flawless, but do you use an eye cream? Many women forget this vital stage of a daily plan, and peepers end up suffering because of it. The skin around the eye is the most fragile on the face and also wrinkles the easiest. So if you want to keep signs of ageing at bay, read on for our tips on the best eye creams on the market.

Choosing an eye cream all depends on what problem you want to solve. Is it wrinkles, puffiness or dark circles? Decide on this and then you’re good to go. If dark areas under your eyes are the problem then give Kate Somerville CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream a go. This isn’t a cheap option, but the reviews are amazing. It’s lightweight enough for the fragile under-eye area, and contains pearlescent blurring particles to help hide dark circles. It also contains Vitamin C, so will help energise your eye area and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Talking of wrinkles, if fine lines are your enemy then why not try Balance Me’s Wonder Eye Cream? This promises to make wrinkles and lines around the eye thinner in just four weeks – giving a refreshed appearance courtesy of its blend of rosehip, coconut and carrot oil.

If a quick fix is what you want then L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Magic Blur Instant Skin Smoother Anti-Ageing Eye Cream is a good call. This uses photo app filters as its inspiration, and aims to diffuse light to soften the appearance of puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes. Use before make-up as a primer, or even on its own on top of moisturiser, and marvel at the effects.

It's recommended to get at least eight hours of sleep every night, but for many reasons, this isn’t possible. If you know you’re going to fall short of the sleep quota for whatever reason, then smooth on some Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion before you hit the hay. This has become a cult classic over the years and it’s not hard to see why – it hydrates the under eye area while you sleep, ensuring you look refreshed and youthful when you wake up.
