Our eyes are one of the first places where signs of ageing appear, so don’t forget to treat this delicate area with tender loving care. Here are five ways to get younger-looking peepers:
Get rid of puffiness by using products that give a cooling sensation or contain caffeine as an ingredient. Try Origins’ No Puffery Cooling Mask for Puffy Eyes, $48; or Boscia’s Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm, $38. A DIY fix: Pop a metal spoon into the fridge for an hour, then use the concave side on your eyes to de-puff.
Start your anti-ageing eye care routine early with lightweight gels and creams. These soothe the delicate eye area while preventing collagen damage. Give Fresh’s Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Gel, $94; or Shiseido’s Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate, $98, a go.
3. Get rid of dark-eye circles
When shopping for eye creams, look out for brightening ingredients such as arbutin, vitamin C, kojic acid and liquorice to banish dark under-eye circles. For brighter eyes, try La Mer’s The Illuminating Eye Gel, $220; or Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector, $65.
4. Prevent wrinkles
Stimulate collagen production to plump up the skin and simultaneously reduce lines and wrinkles with eye creams enriched with peptides. Laneige’s Time Freeze Eye Serum, $69; or Sisley’s Supremya Eyes, $345, are a good bet.
Prevent sagging by choosing eye treats with retinol. This vitamin A derivative stimulates collagen production and cellular regeneration for youthful-looking peepers. To lift, opt for Chanel’s Le Lift Crème Yeux, $138; or Lancome’s Renergie Yeux Multi-Lift, $110.
