What is the Best Under Eye Treatment?
Nowadays, under-eye treatment is a common anti-aging solution for most of the women.Many people are becoming confused with all of the terminology going around in the skincare market. Today, we’ll dive into a few of the interchangeable terms used for under-eye products. Let’s first look at what these products attempt to treat, and assume they all have the same common goals:
- Reduce or conceal dark under-eye circles
- Reduce eye puffiness
- Cure dark circles
- Stimulate collagen regeneration under the eyes (this area of skin becomes thin QUICK)
- Eliminate or diminish fine lines
- Eliminate or diminish wrinkles
Lastly, there is one BIG thing that people attempt to do with their eye products, and perhaps it’s the most common complaint among people who are 40+.
Remove eye wrinkles
Those nasty eye wrinkles, otherwise known as “crows feet,” are probably the best example of what bothers consumers most as they age. While crow’s feet cannot be removed entirely, they can be significantly concealed by using a daily eye product or eye wrinkle cream.
Eye wrinkle creams (whether you buy it as an eye product or as an anti-wrinkle cream) can effectively conceal wrinkles around the eyes. For this matter, it’s worth noting that the best active ingredient an eye product can contain is Argireline. This anti-aging breakthrough ingredient has been called by some “the best needle-free alternative to Botox injections.” That’s quite the comparison, and for people (like us) who fear the needle and don’t want to make a big deal out of hiding wrinkles, an eye wrinkle cream is the best solution.
Argireline is commonly found in serums, as it is in our recommended product, Elite Serum.
It’s just too hard to formulate into a cream, such as an eye cream. That leads us back to the question we posed today – what is the best eye product, an eye cream, serum, or gel? Well, if eye wrinkles are your concern, an eye serum is probably the route to go, as it can treat the affected area of skin in a much more direct manner than an eye cream.
Eye cream is probably best for protecting your skin from future damage as the cream is much easier to mix with ingredients that provide a sun protection factor (SPF). For this reason, eye creams that contain SPF are probably the best option for anyone who is looking for a preventative measure to fight the elements of the sun, providing your eye cream does have an adequate amount of SPF.
Eye gels have been gaining steam in recent years as an alternative to eye creams and serums. While “gel” is a marketing word, it lacks the medicinal value of an eye serum. You simply can’t pack in all of the same anti-aging ingredients in a gel as the best anti-aging ingredients do not bond together when they are put in that form. However, there are plenty of eye gels that can deliver a cure for eye bags and also work as an excellent moisturizing option. Look for an eye gel that comes in a tube, as an airless pump can become clogged with the sticky gel. A cell also offers a much more precise delivery of the product and saves money when compared to an airless pump. The airless pumps are hard to maneuver sometimes as they often spit out way too much of your product, and with the amount of money eye cream products sell for, you must have an effective delivery system.
So, the short answer, for those of you who are looking for the best under eye treatment to get rid of the many symptoms of aging, go with an eye serum. The viscosity of serums allows for many more ingredients to be included in the formula. If you are looking for something to protect you and moisturize the skin below your eyes, go with an eye cream.
If you find some ingredients in a specific eye gel that intrigue you, by all means, investigate it further, and if you have any questions on under eye treatment, let us know.
