Why do I need a targeted eye cream?

The eyes are one of the most expressive, yet delicate areas of your body. Here are some of the reasons why you should add an anti aging eye cream to your skin care routine.


You may already have your anti aging skin care routine sorted. You’ve got the best anti aging products in your cupboard, from face wash and gel to exfoliator and moisturizer. However, what most people forget to consider, amongst their anti aging cream, is a high-quality eye cream. The eye area needs extra attention and investing in an eye cream is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Here’s why.

1. Your eyes age quicker

Unfortunately, you have sensitive skin around your eyes, and as such, it ages at a faster pace than the rest of your face. So even if you are cleansing twice a day and applying weekly masks, you have to prioritize your eyes and invest in some eye cream. Try Clarins Multi-Active Eye for a refreshing and soothing eye treatment that keeps your eyes looking fresher, brighter, and younger.

2. Your eyes have thinner, more delicate skin

You have extremely sensitive skin around your eyes and it’s around 40% thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. Our Hydra-Essential Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask has Organic Leaf of Life properties that help to instantly revive tired eyes. Its lightweight texture is super absorbent and it can be used as a quick 10-minute pick-me-up for tired eyes, or as a longer intensive overnight mask that hydrates your eyes while you sleep.


3. Your eyes lose hydration fast

When it comes to retaining moisture, your eyes and the surrounding skin don’t come out at the top of the class by any stretch. In fact, they lose moisture at a much faster rate than the skin on the surrounding areas of your face, making them the driest spots. Many people don’t realize how dry their eye areas are, and that’s just because the skin is so delicate that it doesn't flake or get dry patches as easily as the rest of your face. When you are looking for eye cream always ensure that you get one that will moisturize sensitive skin, hydrate your eyes and leave you with supple-looking , smooth skin.

4. You can finally rejuvenate tired-looking eyes

Everyone has experienced under-eye circles at some stage in their life, whether it’s from sleeping in the wrong position, not getting enough sleep, bad circulation, or simply due to everyday stress. It is a result of fluid coagulating in the least elastic part of your face and the fact that the skin is so thin just makes the fluid more noticeable.


You’ve probably tried the cucumber trick or iced tea bags and everything in between, with little to mediocre results. These solutions are only temporary and while they may initially have an effect on puffy eyes, it’s not a long-term solution. You need a product like Clarins Eye Contour Gel. This is a refreshing and hydrating product and is one of the best under-eye creams for improving the appearance of your eyes. With Rose Water extract, it helps to soothe and soften the delicate skin around your eyes. It also contains Palmetto properties, which is renowned for its refreshing and long-lasting contour-soothing abilities.

5. It’s the perfect prep for makeup application

While there are tons of anti aging products on the market that make for a great foundation for makeup application, many people forget how great under eye cream can be for this purpose. The best under eye cream has great smoothing and visibly firming qualities that make an amazing difference to how your makeup looks once it's applied.

6. Remember to adjust your lifestyle too

Ensure that you are getting enough moisture to keep your eye area well hydrated; drink at least 64 ounces of water a day (or more if you are active). Eat lots of fruit and vegetables that are high in antioxidants, and try to avoid fried, salty foods wherever you can.


The sun is the number one culprit when it comes to damaged skin and it’s important to stay in the shade when you can and always wear a moisturizer with an SPF that will help look after your delicate skin.
