How to Care for the Skin Around Your Eyes

Blame it on all those late nights binge-watching sessions, insomniac babies, or long days at work. Waking up and staring back at your under-eye hollows in the mirror is never a pretty sight we all want. And not only lack of sleep but our constant exposure to blue light and digital devices is an equal culprit. Getting rid of those pesky dark circles can be tricky and can creep up as our skin below the eyes is thinnest. Under-eyes hollows, puffiness and pigmentation are the common causes of those dreaded dark circles. But hey, fret not, help is now at hand with Quench Botanics! 

Common Under Eye Area Concerns

Before we talk about ingredients and tips to care for your under eye, here are some of the top under-eye area problems we have often heard. 

  • Puffy bags: Puffy bags, also known as under-eye bags are caused by fluid retention. Puffy bags can cause a pool of blood underneath your eyes and it can be due to fluctuation in  hormone levels, signs of ageing, high salt diet and even certain medications. Worse case scenario, it can even give you an unrested look, well no matter how many hours of sleep you get!
  • Dark circles: A common concern where the skin under your eyes appears dark. Constant eye strain, ageing, genetics are the major factors that are responsible for dark circles. Our skin around the eyes loses the collagen and it becomes thinner accentuating under eye issues.

  • Sunken Eyes: Do you have a groove below your inner corner of the eyes and does it look sunken? As you grow this groove tends to become worse and people who have this under-eye problem tend to look tired all the time. It causes dark circles to look more prominent. 

Key Ingredients to Look for When Buying Eye Creams and Eye Care Products! 

How to Care for the Skin Around Your Eyes

Our under-eye area is where first signs of ageing appear such as fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. Hence, investing in a nourishing eye cream is a must. How to make sure your eye care products do all that? Make sure you check the ingredients of your eye cream that will help reduce under-eye concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. 

  • Hyaluronic Acid  - Have you got dryness around your under-eye area? Investing in a hyaluronic-based formula is the best bet as this ingredient has incredible moisture-retaining properties and helps to boost hydration. It plumps the under-eye skin to make it look brighter and even-toned
  • Caffeine - If you have puffiness and under-eye bags, look nowhere except for caffeine-enriched eye creams. It’s a vasoconstrictor, meaning it has a shrinking effect on the diameter of our blood vessels. It can lead to decreasing the dark circles and puffiness around and under the eye. 
  • Vitamin C - Quench eye creams come packed with vitamin C that helps to get rid of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines by boosting collagen production. Vitamin C minimizes discoloration such as hyperpigmentation and age spots and even gives your under eyes a brighter appearance
  • Antioxidants - The benefits of vitamin C and E helps to reduce the dark circles, de-puffs and energizes your under eye area. And to achieve that healthy glow your skin needs products that come enriched with these ingredients. Moreover, they provide antixoshant protection from environmental aggressors such as pollution, dirt and UV protection
  • Retinol - One of the best and finest ingredients to look for in anti-aging eye care products– Retinol. It’s a derivative of vitamin A, an excellent ingredient that promotes collagen production and improves cell turnover. It makes your under-eye area luminous but also works on reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Peptides - For firmer and younger-looking skin, especially around the eyes, look for peptide as an ingredient in your eye care products. Peptides are chains of amino acids that form the basic building blocks of proteins and make up a large portion of the body's tissues, skin and organs. Peptides stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity and enhance under-eye area. Our soothing Yuzu Fine Revitalizing Under Eye Gel is loaded with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid,  anti-ageing peptides and refreshing aloe vera extracts that work on eye puffiness, fine lines and dark circles.
