Eye Treatments and Serums

Eye Treatments and Serums

What it is and what it is for?


The skin around the eyes is very sensitive, being common to show some signs of aging and fatigue, such as: fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and sagging, which makes the look more tired and the face with less energy and vigor.
The eye serum is a care that specifically addresses this area, attenuating the aforementioned signs, providing a rejuvenated look and with a healthy appearance.
In addition, many serums are also designed to moisturize and firm extremely delicate skin.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Eye serums usually have 3 main ingredients:
Hyaluronic acid, a moisturizing ingredient that does not irritate the skin, but provides a youthful appearance around the eyes.
Neuropeptides, which are a stimulant for the creation of collagen; these proteins help to fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Retinol, another ingredient that neutralizes fine lines and wrinkles, since it increases the amount of collagen created naturally in the body.
In addition to these 3 ingredients there are several others that also promote various benefits, these being only the most common and the most important for skin care.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


There are several types of serums, all with different goals for the skin.
The most common serums aim to combat the signs of aging in the eye contour area, an excellent example of this is Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream by Shiseido.
There are also serums to combat signs of fatigue, such as dark circles, puffiness and pigmentation problems, such as Powercell 24h Eye Care by Helena Rubinstein.
In addition to these, some serums have the main objective of hydrating and revitalizing the skin, being formulated to complement the daily moisturizing cream, such as Daywear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant by Estée Lauder.
And finally, we have those which do these three actions, that is, they moisturize while fighting the signs of aging and tiredness. Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream by La Prairie is a magnificent example of this combination of treatments.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


Serums can have different packaging, from the ones in the jar to the ones in the tube.
The most frequent is the tube, with or without a metal tip that is normally used to improve the application of the serum, such as DermAbsolu Yeux Soin Regard Jeunesse by Avène that has a metallic tip and Aquaporin Active Revitalizing Eye Care by Eucerin which is a simple tube.
It can also be presented in a dispenser, jar and dropper, such as Premium Yeux by Lierac, Time-Filler Eyes Crème Correction Regard by Filorga and Cell Shock Eye Zone Booster by Swissline.
The most common quantity is 15ml, for any type of packaging.


What to take into account when choosing an eye serum?


For the choice of a serum, it is very important to evaluate your skin type and understand if the serum you want corresponds to it. Otherwise, it may cause adverse effects to those desired.
Another significant parameter is to perceive what your skin really needs, that is, if the biggest problem in your eye contour is intense puffiness or dark and deep dark circles, you should use a more specific serum, such as Eye Repair Cream by CeraVe.
If your skin is very dry and forming fine lines due to dehydration, choose one that is moisturizing, being Minéral 89 Yeux by Vichy an excellent option.
If the problem is wrinkles and some lack of elasticity in the eyelids, you should choose a care that reduces both wrinkles and lack of firmness, being Densitium Contour Des Yeux by SVR a great choice.
Finally, if you have suffered any changes in the eye contour and notice that you have a slight irritation, burning or redness you should choose a soothing and repairing serum, as Toleriane Ultra Contour Yeux by La Roche Posay, a care that soothes and soothes the skin immediately.
Never do without specific care for this delicate and sensitive area. Fine lines, puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles and sagging are problems that sooner or later come up. That said, don't forget that it is always best to take care and prevent.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


In order to improve your experience with an eye contour serum, the most important, as mentioned earlier, is the choice of the product. That is, assess the needs of your skin and look for a product adapted to it.
Always choose to apply the serum with small pats or with a very gentle massage. Avoid spreading the cream hard to avoid sensitizing and attacking the skin.
In addition, apply the serum to the bone area around the eyes and never inside that area; it should also be placed around the eye contour and not just below.
Make sure that you clean your face well and, after application, leave it on for a few seconds before putting on your daily moisturizer. To avoid causing irritation to the eyes, always apply a small amount without excess.
And finally, for those who suffer from chats, choose to store the serum in the refrigerator, this way the cold product will help to decongest this area more effectively.


What are the pros and cons of using an eye serum?


Serums for the eye contour have almost no negative effects, as it is a non-invasive treatment, that is, it is done exclusively externally. Regardless, there are people who have very sensitive skins and who may actually have allergic reactions or hypersensitivity. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the serum, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: avoiding and reducing the early appearance of dark circles and puffiness; smooth out wrinkles and expression lines; neutralize the appearance of deep wrinkles; return the necessary elasticity to the skin; prevent sagging and loss of volume; promote deep hydration to the skin, generating a more revitalized and healthier looking skin.
