• Eye creams are a must-have in your beauty arsenal and have a multitude of purposes and benefits from wrinkle smoothing to fading under eye circles. Women of all ages can benefit from a good eye cream.

    Fade Under Eye Circles

    Improved nutrition is the first line of defense for under eye circles. However, a good eye cream formulated with vitamin A or royal jelly can help in many cases.


    The skin around the eyes is some of the most delicate skin on the body. A standard moisturizer won't provide the amount of continued moisturizing that an eye cream will; eye creams are generally more concentrated and not suitable for the rest of your face.

    Reduce Puffiness

    An eye cream intended to reduce puffiness should be a lightweight gel. The best ingredients in an eye cream for reducing puffiness are aloe, chamomile, green tea and cucumber.

    Smooth Fine Lines

    According to the Makeup Diva, "Aamoisturizing eye cream with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, propylene or butylene glycol or glycerin that trap water in your skin can plump up the lines temporarily, so they look less pronounced." To actually reduce lines, you'll need a product with retinol.


    A gel is good as a day cream for puffiness and dark circles, while a serum is better for nighttime use due to its heavier oils and for moisturizing properties and ability to smooth fine lines. A lotion can span the spectrum from day to night cream and depending on ingredients can be used for some or all of the above purposes.
