Rise And Shine! Look For These Ingredients While Buying An Under-Eye Cream

There is a lot of buzz surrounding under eye creams. A lot of people think they are useless and expensive while other swear by them holding them as close to their hearts as a pot of gold. The fact of the matter is that the skin around your eyes is the thinnest skin on your body. So lack of sleep, excessive rubbing, dryness and allergies all contribute to dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. There's little you can do with normal skincare products because they are too thick and don't penetrate through the thin skin under your eyes. So how to get rid of dark circles, you wonder? That's where under eye creams come into play - they best penetrate through the ultra delicate skin under your eyes and help you deal with lines, wrinkles, darkness, dullness and puffy eyes! Next time you're in the market for an eye cream, look for these ingredients!
