The eyes are not only the windows to our soul but they also give a peek at our lifestyle. The puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines may let people in on our daily routines and skincare regimen. And while wrinkles and lines a.k.a. crow’s feet around the eye area are entirely normal, it usually ages us more than we think. That’s where eye creams come in.
What do eye creams do to address fine lines?
Fine lines result from the skin’s natural movement relative to our facial expressions, sleeping habits, and day-to-day routines. However, lack of skin moisture, reduced collagen, and other natural factors related to skin ageing and/or external skin damage also contribute to the appearance of fine lines way earlier than you expect them to pop up.
Eye creams pump the skin with the vitamins and nutrients it loses on a daily basis while still being sensitive enough for the eye area’s thinner skin layer. Ideally, this results in the minimised appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you looking more youthful and bright-eyed, and less tired. Seems promising? Below, 13 eye creams for fine lines in Singapore to achieve these and more.
