We lose water in large amounts every single day and these fluids need to be replenished on a regular basis, but here’s the catch—simply drinking water means that it will reach other parts of your body before it reaches your skin. So, let's take a step back here... If we want our skin to be hydrated, what to do we have to do?
BE PREVENTATIVE & START NOW. A frequent misconception is that you should only start using eye cream once your skin starts to show signs of visible aging. Even if fine lines and wrinkles really aren’t your main concern, you should absolutely still be using an eye cream regularly in order to keep your under-eye skin hydrated.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SPECIFIC CONCERNS. Not all eye creams are created equal. While using pretty much any eye cream is better than using none, you aren’t doing the most for your skin if you’re using a cream that isn’t meant to address your specific skin care concerns. For example, if your biggest concern is dark circles, using a cream that’s focused on puffiness doesn’t make a ton of sense.
Still, experts suggest limiting your use of waterproof, smudge proof formulas made with little to no water. The extra effort needed to remove these products can damage lashes, causing them to break or fall out.
