Skin care is expensive. We get it. One trip to the drug store or the beauty counter can set you back hundreds of dollars with only a few tiny jars to show for it. Most of us are willing to fork over a few bills to look younger, but the difficultly comes with knowing what products are actually worth your hard earned cash. Products like eye creams.

You may already use a face moisturizers (here are some suggestions if you’re not using one already) and if you do, that’s great. It’s for your whole face, so why do you need to use an eye cream as well? Aren’t eyes typically located on the face? When it comes to eye care, a specifically formulated cream is necessary if you want to see results. According to WebMD and dermatologist Patricia Farris, MD, eye creams are necessary because of the delicate nature of the skin surrounding the eyes.

Skin around the eyes is noticeably thinner, which means it’s more easily affected by things like dehydration, elements (aka sun – the skin’s nemesis), aging and genetics. With the fragile nature of skin around the eyes, it’s often the first place to show signs of aging and fatigue, including fine lines and crows feet, puffiness, dark circles, and a dulling of the skin. Sun damage on the face is most pronounced in the eyes, with the decrease in collagen production, something that happens to skin on our entire bodies, more obvious in the eye area.

To help combat the effects of aging on the eyes, it’s important to use an eye cream daily that targets the areas that cause what we’re all trying to avoid – the dreaded raccoon eyes. Retinol helps to boost collagen, hyaluronic acid replenishes moisture, and Vitamin C can thicken skin, making it more resilient to the wear and tear of daily life.

Now that you know why you need an under eye cream, it’s time to check out some great options!

  

1. Sir Hare Eye Cream

The Sir Hare Eye Cream is one of the newer eye creams on the market and it’s already amassed a devoted following.

The cream, which absorbs quickly, is applied at night.
