Have you ever wondered why you need eye cream? Why can’t we just slap on some thick lotion and be done with it? The reason is because a normal moisturiser cannot get rid of under-eye bags, puffiness or dark circles (tell us about it) because it doesn’t have the necessary ingredients. The under-eye area is thinner and much more delicate than other parts of the face, and because of our constant eye movements and the tugging motions while removing make-up, paired with sun damage, wrinkles tend to form. Eye creams are designed to negate these effects and it’s best to start using them early as preventive care.
Here are the ones we love.
