Jeune Skin Care: Ask the Experts
- Help reduce puffiness
- Diminish the signs of aging
- Control dark undereye circles
The skin under the eye is so thin, it needs special care. A basic moisturizer will do well to hydrate the area under the eye, but if your goal is to treat things such as crows feet, puffiness and circles, you will need something specific.
What to Look for in an Eye Cream
To avoid irritation, eye creams are made with lower levels of active ingredients. They also contain substances found in face creams, such as caffeine to reduce puffiness, vitamin k for dark circles, and of course retinol or alpha hydroxy acids to stimulate collagen growth. Eye creams also contain ingredients such as silicone that act as temporary "line plumpers."
How to Apply Eye Cream
For optimal results, use an eye gel or cream both in the morning and at night. Apply it along the orbital bone, which is located directly under the eye, applying it also to the brow bone. Gently pat it on, being careful to no drag or pull the skin.
Which Eye Cream is Best?
Try an eye cream that can target several things, yet actually works! Skin Medica's TNS Illuminating Eye Cream ($80), available at UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care, helps minimize the appearance of dark circles and puffiness while firming and reducing fine lines around the eyes. It is also the only eye cream with Nouricel MD, a blend of peptides to help build dermal tissue and reinforce tone. (It was also voted the best eye cream on the Oprah Winfrey show.)
