The Eyes Have It; Choosing the Right Eye Cream

The eyes are the most delicate area of the face and also one of the first places to show the signs of ageing. The thin skin around the eyes is more prone to crow's feet, dehydration, dark circles, bags, and fine lines. We get it, we’re overachievers. With so many incredible ingredients in all of IMAGE Skincare’s eye crème formulas, you might find yourself wondering which eye crème is right for you. Wonder no longer! 

Read on for a breakdown of which eye crème to use for any condition or concern.

EYE RULES BY THE DECADE

Not all eye crèmes are created equal. Brush up on what you need to know about eye crèmes at every age. 

20s-30s
In your twenties to early thirties you need an eye cream to support the structures beneath the delicate skin around your eyes, keeping it healthy while diminishing the possibility of damage so you'll look better as you age. 

30s-40s
In your later thirties into your forties, the focus should shift to boosting collagen production and combating the signs of visible ageing. Products with high-grade peptides are beneficial for this age group. 

40s and beyond
Once you hit your late forties, it’s important to look for a cream that supports tissue health, prevents further damage, and reduces the signs of visible ageing. 

PRO TIP: If your skin is oily and/or your eye makeup tends to run, choose a gel formula, which is less creamy. 

DID YOU KNOW?
All IMAGE Skincare eye crèmes now contain PLANT DERIVED STEM CELLS! Swiss apple stem cell PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica is now included in all of our eye crèmes to help combat the signs of ageing. This award-winning ingredient is extracted from a rare 18th Century Swiss Apple species well known for its ability to be stored for long periods of time without shrivelling. This potential for longevity when incorporated into skincare products enhances the longevity of skin cells and has excellent age-delaying and anti-wrinkle properties.
