5 Eye Creams Ageing Well
By Khanak Mehta
Do you remember the last time you put on an eye cream or a serum? If you’re taking more than 30 seconds to answer, well – there's no judgement from our side. We get it. You probably classify eye cream as a product that people in their 40s and 50s use, but the reality is that using eye cream in your 30s is equally as important.
The skin surrounding your eyes is one of the most delicate on your body, and by the time you hit the big 3-0, it starts showing the early signs of ageing and sun damage. In your 40s, this translates into dullness and wrinkles. But the good news is that you can start preventing this now, with hydrating eye creams infused with baby amounts of retinol.
Here are some of our top picks to get you started.
Rich in marine , this formula from Australian spa skincare brand is a triple threat that counters puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles, too. Plus, the eye cream is natural, paraben-free, mineral oil-free, SLS-free, alcohol-free, and cruelty-free – so if you’re a clean beauty fan, pick this one up without a second thought.
THE BODY SHOP
Are you someone who has tried innumerable eye creams, but always finds the formula to be too heavy and oily? Then this pick from The Body Shop is for you.
