When it comes to keeping your complexion looking youthful, firm and energized, eye creams are an absolute must-have. Because the skin surrounding the eyes is so delicate, it generally is fast to show signs of aging, from sagging to fine lines. On your quest to keep your eyes looking young and fresh, look for an eye cream that is infused with vitamin A, a protective antioxidant that defends your skin against annoying free radicals and their effects.
Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex
Make unsightly dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles a thing of the distant past with the Pro-X Eye Restoration Complexion from Olay Professional, which Emily Hebert of "Elle" recommends. The eye cream consists of retinol (a vitamin A extract), vitamin B-3 and peptides, all of which work together to moisturize and replenish fragile skin. The hydrating cream also works hard to fortify the skin by promoting cell regeneration and the production of collagen -- making your complexion look as good as new.
Mario Badescu Glycolic Eye Cream
To provide your eye area with some intense moisture, Alison Caporimo of "Allure" suggests the Glycolic Eye Cream from Mario Badescu. The mild peanut oil-based moisturizer lavishes your skin with vitamins E and A, defending it against the dangers of premature aging. At the same time, the rich eye cream sloughs away dead skin cells and dirt with gently exfoliating acid. If scented products give you a headache, this eye cream is entirely fragrance-free.
Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream
One inevitable yet frustrating sign of aging is the development of skin discoloration. If you're noticing dark spots popping up all over your complexion (including around your eyes), take action. Catherine Gambrell of "Allure" praises the Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream from Neutrogena. The unscented and affordable cream smooths out and softens your complexion while simultaneously brightening skin tone. The formula includes calming allantoin, hydrating hyaluronic acid and collagen-boosting retinol, all of which work as a team to keep your skin tone even, balanced, radiant and well-quenched.
RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream
If you're wary of heavy moisturizing products, opt for a lightweight and fast-absorbing formula such as the Retinol Correxion Eye Cream from RoC. Lisa Cohen Lee of "Allure" is an advocate of the cream, which aims to minimize unnerving eye woes including puffiness, under-eye bags and crow's feet. The non-oily, collagen-based cream has no discernible scent and includes enriching minerals such as skin renewing magnesium, copper and zinc.
