The definition of what is considered beautiful changes over time and according to where a woman lives. However, thick, full, and dark lashes are a universal sign of femininity and sex appeal. A great set of lashes can instantly improve any woman’s overall appearance by softening her features, accentuating her eyes, and giving her a more youthful look.

What You Should Look For in a Quality Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream?

The eye area is more prone to wrinkles and lines than the rest of the face and body for several reasons. As dermatologist Dr. Paul Cohen explains, “The skin around your eyes is the thinnest skin on your body. And because we express ourselves with our eyes, that area is the first place that fine lines appear.”

The delicate nature of the skin around the eye area and the fact that it is constantly stretching and contracting as we talk, laugh, and express ourselves make it highly susceptible to lines. Losses in moisture levels and elasticity occur as we age, and sun exposure can break down collagen and elastin, causing skin to lose its firmness.

Because of the special needs of the skin around the eyes, a regular facial cream is not enough. Instead, you should look for products that are specially formulated for this challenging area. Not too long ago, women hoping to keep their eye area firm and youthful-looking were told they had to spend a fortune on creams designed to address only one issue. There were creams for puffiness, others to handle lines, and still others designed to minimize the appearance of unsightly dark circles. Now, there are all-in-one products formulated to address all of these issues, which has made using eye creams both easier and more economical.

When shopping for an eye cream, there are a few things you should look for. First, all eye creams should contain powerful moisturizers to keep skin hydrated and nourished. Moisturizers can also diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and make skin look and feel velvety smooth. Dark circles, bags, and puffiness are common eye area problems that can age you just as much as the deepest wrinkles. To address the appearance of puffiness and bags, look for eye creams with soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredients. If dark circles are an issue, eye creams containing certain beneficial vitamins are good choices since they may help to reduce the appearance of dark under-eye skin.

Below is the list of the top eye cream brands on today’s market. With careful evaluation of safety and effectiveness of each brand, backed by clinical studies and research, we ranked the products from best (5 stars) to worst (2 stars). Each product’s potential to lighten dark circles, reduce eye bags and puffiness, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, increase hydration and to calm and soothe are the criteria used for determining the overall value of each eye cream brand.
