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.
