The creams for the eyes are good options to minimize the dark spots under the eyes and improve the texture and integrity of the skin, especially if they contain ingredients such as vitamin C or hyaluronic acid in their composition.
The eyes are characterized by a difference in tone in the skin under the eyes and are generally caused by factors such as sun exposure, skin inflammation, difficulty sleeping, tiredness or swelling of the eyes.
There are several ways to reduce or hide the eyes, from aesthetic treatments, such as laser or carboxytherapy, to makeup or home care that, when combined with healthy living habits, such as having a balanced diet, sleeping well and using daily sunscreen, even better results. However, when the home treatments do not have the desired effect, it is essential to consult a dermatologist who will indicate the best treatment for each type of skin.
The best creams to treat eye problems contain some of the following ingredients in their composition:
Caffeine is an ingredient that activates blood circulation, due to its vasoconstrictor and decongestant action, increasing skin oxygenation and clarifying dark spots under eyes.
Examples of creams: L’Oreal Revitalift roll on eyes; Neostrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy; Vichy Idealia Ojos.
Retinol is a brightening active that unifies the skin tone of the las ojeras zone. In addition, it has the ability to stimulate cell renewal and collagen synthesis, strengthening the skin in this region. See other uses of retinol.
