For After 40: The Best Eye Creams for Wrinkles and Tightening the Skin
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.
Essential Ingredients to look for in eye creams if you're over 40:
1. Hyaluronic Acid
This is such an important component for hydrating and plumping the skin. It treats dryness which can help with wrinkles. It is also said to stimulate collagen production.
This helps boost collagen production in the skin, and so it can help with the appearance of wrinkles.
It helps strengthen the skin and restore its elasticity.
Choose eye creams with vitamins C, A, K and E to help with dark circles, tightening and nourishing the skin.
4. Natural oils
Choose products that contain natural oils to make sure your skin is protected from dehydration.
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair line is iconic and a staple for many women when it comes to anti aging. This Supercharged Complex eye cream is one of the best products for women over the age of 40. It targets common skin problems in the eye area, like puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. It also has hyaluronic acid to hydrate and fight wrinkles.
Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm Eye Cream
If you are looking for an eye cream to give your skin the vitamins it needs to help with wrinkles, the Dermalogica eye cream is a good choice. It has vitamin C, E and A. Vitamin A stimulates the production of new cells to get more youthful skin with less wrinkles, while Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and moisturizes the eyes area. Vitamin E soothes the skin and provides hydration as well.
Alpha-H Eye Liquid Gold Firming Lift Eye Cream
In this Alpha-H eye cream you can find everything you are looking for to care for your eye area. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) which help exfoliate the skin gently and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. It also helps tighten sagging skin.
