What To Look For In An Eye Wrinkle Serum
We are contacted daily by customers who want to know what to look for in an
eye wrinkle serum.
Needless to say there are many options available and each products typically has a different "mix" of active ingredients...some more effective than others. In addition to active ingredients, there is also the question of what works better - an eye wrinkle serum or cream? We'll discuss this and several key ingredients you need to look for.
Serums, creams and lotions that were designed to reduce the aging effects on your skin are made with ingredients that are fine for your face but too harsh for the thin layer of skin that make-up your eyelids.
Facial creams and serums may make your eyes red and look inflamed. It can also produce itching or burning. This in effect, can lead to an unsightly infection from rubbing or even scratching this soft tissue. You can feel with your fingertips how very fragile and tender the skin around your eyes is. To prevent wrinkles around your eyes, treat the eye area with caution and care.
Read The Labels On The Jar
The ingredients that are in an eye wrinkle serum are very important. They should not cause allergies or be irritants. Ingredients that have been tested and found safe in the composition of an eye wrinkle serum are alpha and beta hydroxyl acids as well as glycolic acid and kojic acid. These acids are safe ingredients; they may still produce a little tingling or slight burning sensation.
The main thing to know is that they won’t harm you when applied externally on the skin surrounding your eyes.
Which Ingredients Are Desirable?
There are many really good ingredients found in anti-wrinkle creams. A few of the ones you may want to look for are those that follow:
Kolic acid is often used to bleach skin, as in the bleaching of age spots.
Glycolic acid is the most active as well as the most beneficial acid of the alpha hydroxy acid compound. It is a derivative from cane sugar and is used as a mild peeling agent for the skin.
CoQ10 is another ingredient you may want to have in your anti-wrinkle eye cream. CoQ10 is a co-enzyme that permits your cells to functions at a much faster rate than they would on their own. It is most often seen as a supplemental ingredient to food intake because it changes fat and sugars into energy in your body. It has the ability of increasing the function of cells around your eyes as well as in your entire body.
Spirulina is actually blue - green algae. It is very protein rich and also contains many anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. All of these help to reduce the sun damage and wrinkles to your skin around your eyes.
Retin-A, or tretanoin, has been known to be an effective anti-wrinkle cream for a long time and is used in a wide range of anti-aging skin products.
Vitamin C is important for the reason that it is needed to make collagen. The area under your eyes is soft and needs the elastic effects of collagen.
One thing you do not want to see in your eye anti-wrinkle cream is the inclusion of parabens. There have been many studies linking parabens to cancer.
How Much Will It Cost?
If the price is out of your range, you may have to look for different wrinkle products brands that have most of the ingredients...naturally, the more, the likelihood they will be more expensive. It should be noted that the priciest eye serums are not always the most effective ones.
If you buy directly from the manufacturer online, you can get a product that normally retail at $100+ for a fraction of the cost.
