We all know about the countless benefits of using eye cream (it’s one of my favorite subjects – just see my article in Teen Vogue!) morning and night, but here’s a quick reminder: The skin around the eye is the most delicate area of the face, so its prone to more issues and early signs of aging. This is where eye cream comes in. The product helps smooth fine lines and crow’s feet, as well as hydrate, plump and de-puff the entire eye area.
If you think eye cream is a game-changer, just wait until you hear about the newest wave of eye-specific technology. Now it’s all about the eye serum. Here’s what you need to know…
In terms of texture, they are generally lighter than the typical eye cream, which makes them ideal for warmer months. They are also jam-packed with super powerful ingredients that are easily absorbed into the skin. Serums are usually more targeted and less general than eye creams, so when making your big purchase (they are not cheap), make sure you buy one that addresses your key problem areas. To help you get started, here are my four favorite eye serums.
For moms to be, women who are nursing and anyone who prefers non-toxic and organic – Tata Harper Elixir Vitae Eye Serum
Retinol based miracle worker that will literally change the skin around your eye – Verso Super Eye Serum
For those who suffer from droopy eye syndrome – La Mer the Lifting Eye Serum
If you like roses/ the biggest bang for your buck – Korres Wild Rose Face & Eye Serum
