Smiling is a nice way to enhance your personality, however, many associate excessive smiling with the development of crow's feet, fine lines, dark circles, puffy eyelids and bags under the eyes.

Our eyes are the windows to the soul, but since the skin around the eyes is five to ten times thinner than the rest of the skin on the face it's imperative to pamper our eyes on a daily basis. Eye creams, as anti-aging cosmetics, are scientifically formulated with vitamin C, E or K, combined with caffeine and natural herbs to protect this transparent and tender eye area and help your skin look its best.
The three major types of eye cream, or anti-aging cream, on the market today are day eye creams; which are applied after cleansing in the morning and night eye creams; which are applied after cleansing at night. Non-specific eye creams are also available for use any time of day.
During the day, the day creams can minimize the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and puffiness that accumulate due to stress and environmental pollutants. Many day eye creams also contain UV protection for shelter in the sun.
Before bed, night cream is applied and works while you sleep. Night creams are formulated with vitamins and nutrients that renovate the epidermis and prevent additional damage to the skin around your eyes.
Eye creams are much like eye gels; however eye creams are normally richer and provide better moisturizing benefits. However those with oily or acne-prone skin might benefit more from the lightness of eye gel.
Eye cream should always be applied with the fingertips in small dabbing motions under each eye. Don't massage or tug on the area because it may loosen the skin and block the pores. Before applying any eye cream, always use mild makeup remover and cleanse your face to remove any excess dirt and makeup.
