Why You Should Try a Retinol Eye Cream

Using an eye cream spiked with retinol is an excellent way to reduce the appearance of fine lines, as well as help to prevent them from forming in the future.

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest layer of skin on your entire body, and therefore it’s the most sensitive to all the things both life and Mother Nature toss at us. It’s one of the first areas that showcases our lifestyle habits, from late nights to sun damage (we see you dark circles and under-eye wrinkles!), which means we've got to take every precaution when looking after the area. Using an eye cream like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Eye Cream which is made specifically for your eyes, is crucial.

Now, we can’t control the aging process entirely (crepey skin, wrinkles and fine lines are simply inevitable as we get older, and therefore become even more noticeable around the delicate skin that surrounds our eyes), but there are ways to slow down the process—if you want to, of course.

Adding retinol-infused products to your skincare routine is one measure that dermatologists often recommend. That’s because the vitamin A derivative has been shown to increase collagen production (the natural foundation of plump, smooth skin), as well as speed up the rate of skin cell turnover. This means that the hero ingredient is not only very effective at minimizing those fine lines and under-eye wrinkles, but also excellent at restoring radiance and treating any sun-damaged skin.

But why not just use any old retinol-infused product under your eyes? Because there’s a high possibility that those formulas could be too intense for your eyes in terms of strength, which could lead to irritation and dryness around the delicate area. Eye cream for fine lines on the other hand is formulated specifically for that fragile skin, so you don’t have to stress about any potential side effects.

Choices, choices, choices. There are so many different eye cream formulations on the market these days, which can make for an incredibly frustrating process when you’re trying to pick the right one.

Combining anti-aging pro-retinol with soothing centella asiatica (a.k.a. a medicinal herb), L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Eye Cream works overtime to replenish the skin's moisture levels, while simultaneously firming and smoothing under-eye wrinkles without irritation.

We recommend using L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Eye Cream as a skincare staple morning and night to boost collagen and elastin levels in the skin’s tissue, which will help minimize fine lines and wrinkles. You may also start to notice permanent frown lines between the brows etched into the skin. That’s why finding the right eye cream is a must. It becomes all about weaving in anti-aging ingredients that will help replace what’s been stripped away.

In terms of application, start at the inner corner underneath your eye and apply small dots in a semi-circle up to your brow bone. Proceed to gently tap in that semi-circle pattern to stimulate circulation until the product is fully absorbed. Note: a little bit of this retinol eye cream goes a long way as it spreads easily and melts right into skin.
