Tired eyes are such common symptom of working in a fast-paced environment like Singapore. Hating the comments from fellow co-workers about looking tired or stressed? Not getting enough sleep? Your eyes are giving you away! It is a known fact that the eye area ages faster than the rest of the face. We help you fix this problem and cheat your way to a younger you!
Why Did these Eye Wrinkles Come From?
Fine lines and wrinkles often start near the eye area because of how delicate the skin is there. Softer, thinner skin tends to wrinkle faster and is more easily exposed to the pollutants in the environment.
Another reason is that while cleansing, toning and moisturising are common place in most skincare routines, eye serums tend to be seen as more for mature women. However, this is a misconception as eye creams have been proven to be an excellent topical fix when applied as early as 25.
What Ingredients Should I Be Looking out For?
Hyaluronic acid, retinol and antioxidants and peptides are great skincare ingredients for eye creams. Each works differently to target different concerns:
Hyaluronic Acid: This hydrating ingredient is a miracle worker. Dehydration is one of the main causes for wrinkles and fine lines.
Antioxidants: Vitamin C, E and A are examples of ingredients that help block environmental pollutants that quicken the ageing process.
Retinol: Though this ingredient gets a bad reputation, it is one of of the fastest ways to see results over time. It helps boost collagen production and slow down the process of ageing.
Peptides: A superstar ingredient, this is also a master at speeding up collagen production. It also works together with skin’s natural processes to achieve this unlike retinol.
