Whether you have been staying up a bit later than usual, or feeling like your days of little sleep are catching up on you, a good, reliable eye serum may be just the thing you after.
While an eye serum may not be considered an essential product in your skincare regimen, one that specifically targets hydration, puffiness, dark circles and fine lines can be a real game changer.
Here are our top 4 things to look for in a good eye serum:
1. Appropriate texture and absorption - Most eye serums/creams are water-based or lightweight in texture because they need to sit well under makeup. Oil-based eye serums and heavy creams can run and blur around your eyes which can be issue if you are a contact lens wearer also.
2. Look for hydration - The skin around your eyes is more sensitive and thin so prone to dryness. Look for hydrating ingredients like glycerin, aloe vera and our favourite - hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid will really help your skin lock in that moisture and plump out appearance of fine lines without feeling too heavy.
3. Caffeine - A must-have in eye serums is caffeine which usually comes in the form of green coffee bean or green tea extracts. Research has shown the benefits of caffeine on reducing puffiness and stimulating circulation with anti-inflammatory properties as well as brightening appearance of dark circles. Caffeine in eye serums can take up to a few hours to take the full effect and in some serums, you can feel the tingle of it instantly!
4. Additional cooling ingredients and anti-aging actives - Look for cooling plant/fruit extracts like cucumber and aloe vera that can help to de-puff. Anti-ageing actives like Vitamin C, peptides and retinols can help deliver antioxidant protection to protect against external stress that causes signs of ageing while supporting collagen production and skin firmness.
