Lately, eye cream has been the subject of several internet memes, suggesting that you might need it if you are old enough to remember certain milestones from the 90s and 2000s. While they may be funny, they are causing many people to ask themselves whether or not eye cream should be part of their daily skin care routine. Here are a few simple signs that you should be taking extra special care of your eyes during your skin care regimen.
Eye Cream in Your 30s
If you are in your 30s and are not yet using a product around your eyes, it is time to start. People in their 30s may not yet see the signs of aging on their skin but they are going to be just around the corner if they do not start taking preventative measures. An under-eye product can help protect the sensitive skin in this area from showing signs of aging prematurely, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Taking this simple step now can help you avoid the use of more specialized products in the future.
Dry Skin Under Your Eyes
Some people have dry skin, others have oily skin, and others have what is known as combination skin. If you have combination skin, your skin texture may be oily in some areas and dry in others. In many cases, the skin under the eyes becomes dry while the rest of the face has excessive amounts of oil. If this is your situation, you should be using cream under your eyes, even if you are not yet showing signs of aging. Dry skin will quickly lead to wrinkled skin at nearly any age if it is not properly cared for.
Bags Under Your Eyes
When we have heavy bags under our eyes, we often assume it is because we are not getting enough sleep. In some cases, this is correct but fatigue is not the only thing that causes under eye circles. In fact, dark circles under the eyes are often the result of dehydration. If you are well rested but still look like you have been up for days, eye cream may give you the boost of moisture that you need to look alert at all times.
