Eye Cream Products – Using Eye Cream Products
Many people suffer from periorbital dark circles, also known as under eye circles or dark eye circles, and periorbital puffiness, also known as eye bags. If you suffer from one of these two conditions and have tried getting more sleep, reducing stress, or even treating allergies with little to no success, then you may have more luck with eye cream products. Eye cream products are designed specifically to treat the sensitive skin around the eyes, without damaging or irritating the tissue. Here, we’ll take a brief look at how you can use eye cream products to treat both periorbital dark circles and periorbital puffiness, as well as how you can make your own eye cream products at home.
Eye cream products are designed especially for the eyes in that they are gentle enough to be used on the delicate tissue, but strong enough to treat dark circles and puffiness. Eye cream products can also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, exfoliate the skin, and restore a more youthful appearance and luster to the eye. Eye cream products come in a variety of types, so choosing one for your specific skin type will give the best results.
Most eye cream products will need to be used for a period of at least two to six weeks for best results. Some eye cream products boast results in less than a week, but for the most effective treatment, you will likely need to use them longer. Some eye cream products can require longer term usage before they are effective. Typically, you will apply eye cream products once or twice a day (typically in the morning and again at night) every day for several weeks, then more occasionally from that point on.
To make your own eye cream products at home, most recipes will use a base of beeswax and an emollient, like olive oil. These are heated to the same temperature and then blended. You can add things like chamomile oil, rose oil, cucumber juice, or aloe vera to tailor your eye cream products to your specific needs. Chamomile oil and rose oil have a soothing effect on the skin when added to eye cream products. Cucumber juice added to eye cream products can help the skin around the eyes get rid of excess moisture, thus reducing puffiness. Aloe vera helps keep the skin smooth and appear more youthful when used in eye cream products.

Also Remember These Dermatologist Recommended Important Tips:
- Age has nothing to do with the lines that appear on the corners of your eyes... it's a combination of heredity and careless abuse of the area.
- Skin is skin... it all needs to be cared for in one way or another. For my younger readers, this means not pulling on the skin when removing eye makeup.
- The eye area is prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so it is really important not over-work the area, squint, and stay away from smokey rooms. Your eyes won't like that either.
- One of the best ways to protect this area of your face is to put on a pair of sunglasses every single time you go outside spring, summer, fall and winter.
- There are very few oil glands in the eye area, so it can dry out very quickly, especially if you spend a great deal of time out of doors.
- When you chose an eye cream, be sure to choose one that is especially formulated for this delicate skin. Don't use a day cream that could be full of ingredients that will irritate this area. Too rich a cream can cause as many problems as ignoring the area.
