In the article before this, we talked about the best eye creams for 30s that can help delay the appearance of signs of aging. However, when over 40, the skin begins to lose its elasticity and wrinkles and lines start to increase. The eye area starts to become drier than usual and so eye creams could help combat that by stimulating collagen and fighting wrinkles and drooping. So, today we're talking about some of the best anti aging eye creams for 40s.

Most common eye area problems for women over 40

Wrinkles are not the only problem women face in their 40s, dark circles can be a result of harmful sun exposure as well.

Also, the body loses a lot of fluid from the age of 40, and as the collagen production decreases, the skin becomes thinner and drier, which causes wrinkles around the eye.
