Everything you need to know about the best anti wrinkle cream for eyes

Updated on June 6, 2012

I believe that the best anti wrinkle eye cream will significantly decrease the pace of aging for your eyes. I am absolutely passionate about the use of moisturizer and anti wrinkle eye cream products. Every woman is deeply concerned about our appearance. If we can forever stop time and always look like we are eighteen, it would be a dream come true. In the meantime, we just have to do our best to slow down the effect of time on our faces.

There are so many different brands and types of anti wrinkle eye cream, which one is for me? This question can be answered in several ways. First, you have to chose a brand that your skin loves. What brands do you use for your other products and which one is the most effective / least problematic for your skin? That is the brand you have to stick with. Second, know the main ingredients in the anti wrinkle eye cream and what it does. I will explain in details below. Third, you have to chose a product that is right for your age group. Different women in each age group need something different. This should be obvious to many because our needs and skin change as we age. You have to ask the sales about which products are designed for your specific age group. Fourth, you have to first test the product before putting it on the skin around your eyes. Our eyes are the most important features on our face. In fact, it is the first thing that people notice when they meet you.

Retinol – This is a very common active ingredient in lots of the best anti wrinkle eye cream. This ingredient has been used on skin for many years. It is a form of vitamin A that is very effective at reducing wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet in the eye area. This ingredient is a very potent antioxidant that soaks up free radicals that are naturally occurring in our skin. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack the skin cells and break them down. By absorbing the damaging effects of free radials, your eye area will look young for an extended period of time. However, for those with sensitive skin, retinol containing anti wrinkle eye cream might not be the best choice. It might irritate your skin. You should always start with a low level of active ingredients to test out if you are sensitive to it.

Tea extracts – Many top brands / best anti wrinkle eye cream have tea extracts in their products. Tea, especially green tea, is known to have antioxidants. As we know, antioxidants will soak up free radical that damages our skin. In addition to antioxidants, tea extracts also contain soothing ingredients that will help with swollen eyes. Green tea is all natural and will not irritate even the most sensitive skin types. However, as with most new products that you are using for the first time, you should always try it out with a lower concentration.

ActiveSoil Complex – The ActiveSoil Complex is refined from naturally occurring virgin soil. Products that contain these ingredients claim that they help reduce wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet by protecting the skin with antioxidants / increase cell turnover. This sounds exciting and there is only one brand, Bare Minerals, that offer products with the ActiveSoil Complex. Bare Minerals is a company that specializes in natural mineral makeup and skincare that won't irritate even the most sensitive skin types. Bare minerals offers great products for women all over the world.

Coenzyme Q10 – This is another common anti aging ingredient found in some creams. This ingredient has been shown to help with various conditions, but it is also a popular dietary intake supplement. Its mechanism is to soak up free radicals that cause damage to our skin. Thus, this ingredient has been categorized as an antioxidant.

Alpha hydroxy acid – This is another common ingredient found in anti aging wrinkle cream. However, if you buy a cream with this ingredient and want to use it for your eyes, you shouldn't do it. This ingredient exfoliate the skin hence the name acid. For skin that is delicate like your eye area, this ingredient might irritate it and actually cause more problems. For your eyes, you have to use a product that is gentle yet effective.

Vitamin C / E – Vitamin C / E are included as active ingredients in some anti aging eye creams. They are known as potent antioxidants and also encourage collagen and elastin production in the skin. Many forms of Vitamin C / E exist and they are all known to have similar effects with different potency. The natural forms of Vitamin C / E has the highest antioxidant activity and can reduce the amount and depth of wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet.

Aside from all the ingredients in the anti aging eye cream, how long it keeps your eyes moist is another key factor. Wrinkles occur because of dry damaged skin. The best anti wrinkle eye cream have to keep your eye area very moist and even slightly oily. Remember, staying hydrated is the key and the best way to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet.
