The skin under the eyes is one of the first places to show signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles under eyes. Throughout the day, your eyes do a lot of work – from working long hours in front of a screen to helping you express yourself every time you laugh, the skin around the eyes is constantly moving.
In fact, the skin around your eyes is usually the first place people show signs of ageing with puffy eyes, fine lines and dark circles. If you are wondering why then you’ve come to the right place! First, the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than other parts of your body. This makes it more prone to dryness and lack of moisture can contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Second, other than your genetics, harsh UV rays, external stressors and lifestyle such as spending a lot of time in front of screens can also cause the skin around the eyes to age more quickly.
Lastly, the skin around your eyes is thin and is constantly in motion. These repeated motions over time can contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
As you get older, your skin starts to lose the fat and collagen needed to maintain your skin’s elasticity. This makes dark blood vessels beneath your skin prominent causing the area below your eyes to appear darker with dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines. For these reasons and more, it is important to care for the skin around your eyes. Taking good care of your skin can help reduce the appearance of early signs of ageing and keep your skin healthy.
While ageing is inevitable and our skin will gradually develop wrinkles and fine lines, moisturizing your skin can help prevent premature ageing and other skin problems. Read on to know more about how you can reduce signs of ageing around your eyes.
How can I reduce the ageing around my eyes?
Moisturizing is one of the most essential step for a healthy skin. Not only does it reduce dryness, it helps keep your delicate skin healthy, nourished and hydrated. As you get older, your skin becomes more prone to dryness, and quicker to show age and fatigue. But is it okay to use your face moisturizer for the skin around your eyes? Not really. The skin around the eyes is thinner as compared to the rest of the face and requires eye creams that are lighter in texture so that they get absorbed easily. Face creams, on the other hand, are often thicker and made with heavy moisturizing ingredients that may not get absorbed easily. Face creams can also have harmful chemicals and artificial ingredients that can irritate the delicate skin and the eyes.
Under eye creams can help you address issues such as dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles in a gentle yet effective way. They are formulated with ingredients specifically targeted for treating the delicate skin around the eye and can get absorbed into the skin easily.
When choosing an under eye cream, always go for ones that have natural ingredients along with antioxidants that can help repair and replenish the delicate skin. Now let’s take a look at some of the ingredients which you must look for in an under eye cream that can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles.
When it comes to reducing dark circles, Coffee oil, a rich source of antioxidants and caffeine, works effectively. Coffee oil also helps improve blood circulation in the skin around the eyes which leaves the skin feeling fresh. Coffee also has anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce puffiness and bags under the eyes. Because of these beneficial properties, coffee oil is a must-have ingredient in anti-ageing eye cream.
Chia Seed Oil, derived from Chia seeds, is the richest botanical source of Omega 3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants. When used as a part of eye cream, it helps moisturise the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Chia Seed Oil is lightweight and gets absorbed easily. It is also suitable for all skin types which makes it ideal for an eye cream for wrinkles.
Other natural ingredients that you should look for in an under eye cream is Chamomile Oil which helps soothe and moisturize the skin. Organic Aloe Vera Gel is another ingredient that works to soothe the skin, moisturize it and reduce dryness. Together with Sweet Almond Oil, these ingredients help soften and moisturize the skin under the eyes which reduce wrinkles and fine lines and make it ideal for the skin around ageing eyes.
The Moms Co.’s Natural Vita Rich Under Eye Cream is a combination of these toxin-free ingredients and has a metal roller tip which makes it easier to use. This under eye cream can be stored in the refrigerator as well before use so that the roller is cool and helps soothe the eyes as well as reduce puffiness.
The under eye cream also has Vitamin B3 which evens out skin tone, making it ideal for those looking for a solution for pigmentation and dark spots around the eyes.

Apart from using an effective under eye cream, it’s just as important to follow a healthy lifestyle.

Following a healthy routine, exercising regularly and getting adequate sleep can ensure that your body and skin feels and looks healthy.
