Experts Share One Eye Cream That Nourishes Skin And Reduces Wrinkles
The skin surrounding and beneath our eyes is more delicate than the other parts of our face. With that said, it’s crucial to never neglect this area when it comes to skincare if your goal is to promote a healthy complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We asked beauty experts for one eye cream that women over 40 can utilize for more moisture, and a product that can make skin look more supple and radiant. Read on for an eye cream recommendation from Madelyn Cusimano, esthetician for The A Method, and eye cream tips and advice from Dr. Anna Chacon, MD, board-certified dermatologist and writer at My Psoriasis Team.
The A Method Collagen Boost Peptide Eye Cream
This eye cream, as Cusimano explains, is from celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Tina Alster, and a product that features peptides, a powerful skincare ingredient that can moisturize, hydrate and soothe the skin around your eyes.
It's dubbed an "all-in-one" cream, meaning that it targets anti-aging goals like drawing attention away from wrinkles and fine lines while also preventing dreaded puffiness.
In addition, it can brighten dark eye circles and aims to "tighten and tone the appearance of skin around the orbital rim," as noted on the brand's website, where you can purchase the highly raved $78 cream.
Benefits Of Peptides In Skincare
Peptides are "amino acids that are the building blocks to proteins in the skin that support elasticity and collagen," Cusimano explains.
Since collagen is made of "apolypeptide chain," adding a peptide cream like this to your routine can "stimulate the skin to make more collagen," she points out.
More collagen in the skin will "help the complexion to look more youthful as well as help tighten the elasticity of the skin to prevent sagging," she continues.
Chacon agrees that peptide products can "decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles," and says that "because collagen is composed of three polypeptide chains," introducing peptides to the skin around your eyes can "boost your skin's production of collagen."
Cusimano concludes that this cream works best when paired with another retinol product (your dermatologist can help you find one that suits your needs).
Retinol, she says, will help "feed the collagen and encourage cell turnover, while the peptide will help support all the progress the skin is making." Both, she stresses, "work on collagen stimulation and strengthening the skin."
