Have you noticed that your facial moisturizer hasn’t been cutting it for the skin under your eyes? Are you noticing puffiness or dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes? If you answered yes to these questions or want to prevent these eye conditions, then you should add eye lotion to your skincare routine.
No matter at what age, the thinner, more delicate skin around your eyes will begin to show signs of aging before other areas of the face.
While genetic factors play a role in the aging process, so do external factors. Your eyes work hard throughout the day and depending on your sleep schedule, they may work even harder than the average 16-18 waking hours. Additionally, your eyes are exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which alone increase signs of aging. Similarly, everyday habits that are aging you, include smoking, stress, and poor nutrition.
Adding eye lotion to your skincare routine can produce amazing results, not just for your appearance, but for the overall health of your skin.
Nourish and Moisturize
Add eye lotion to your skincare routine if for nothing else than to nourish and moisturize your undereye skin. Just like the skin on other parts of your body, undereye skin thrives when it is hydrated. As we age, our skin’s natural ability to retain water begins to decline. Moisturizing helps combat this by preventing water loss to keep your skin soft and supple.
When choosing an eye lotion, look for all-natural moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter and coconut oil. Similarly, calendula, chamomile, lavender, Hibiscus flowers, and aloe vera leaves keep the skin from drying out by protecting it from the sun and environmental pollutants.
Tighten and Tone
Collagen is a protein that helps keep your skin toned. As we age, our ability to produce collagen decreases, thus reducing the elasticity of the skin -- the skin’s ability to rebound and tighten -- which results in loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
All-natural ingredients that promote the production of collagen include carrot seed oil, neem oil, and ashwagandha. Horsetail extract is another all-natural ingredient that contains collagen to give your skin a tightening boost to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Black tea is a beneficial ingredient in eye lotions because it acts as an astringent, causing skin cell contractions that result in tighter, more toned skin.

Reduce Puffiness and Improve Radiance
No matter how old you are, you want to put your brightest most radiant face forward. Some eye conditions are a result of genetics and aging, but external factors such as allergens, sun exposure, and environmental pollutants also play a big role. To reduce redness, puffiness and to improve the radiance of your skin, eye lotions that contain all-natural ingredients can help prevent eye conditions caused by allergens and protect undereye skin from ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Antioxidants are a vital way to prevent skin damage and ingredients chock full of vitamins C, B, and E, produce amazing results. Eyebright contains all of these vitamins. It is an herb used to treat eye redness and irritation and helps to prevent sun damage. Similarly, cucumber and rosemary extract cool and detoxify the skin as a means of increasing blood flow to reduce puffiness. As mentioned above, calendula, chamomile, lavender, Hibiscus flowers, and aloe vera leaves protect the skin from harsh elements, resulting in radiant skin.
