The One Eye Cream No One Should Be Buying Anymore Because It’s SO Bad For You

January 8, 2019 by Jessica Harrington

Ask any dermatologist and he or she will tell you that using an eye cream in your daily skin care regime is one of the best preventative anti-aging measures. Eye creams are designed to target the thin, delicate skin under your eyes that often show the first signs of aging–crow’s feet, fine lines, under-eye bags, to name a few. Without one, that skin can start to age prematurely and consequently, make the rest of your face look older as well.

Since absolutely no one wants to look any older than they are, especially in their 30’s and 40’s, an eye cream is a must. The market is oversaturated with a variety of eye creams that all promise more or less to do the same thing, but not all products are created equally. With all of your skincare products, the best way to differentiate between the good and bad is to read the ingredients on the label.

If you’re looking to up your eye cream game, avoid any product with the ingredient alcohol listed on the label. Seems rather self-explanatory, doesn’t it? Well, you’d be surprised how many products at the beauty store contain this ultra-drying ingredient.

Everything from moisturizers, makeup, and even shampoos can contain alcohol in them. Due to the skin under your eyes being so sensitive, it’s important to ensure your products aren’t doing more harm than good.

As a rule of thumb, avoid alcohols listed as isopropyl and ethanol on the label. These ingredients are derivatives of ethyl alcohol which are extremely drying on your skin. No thank you.
