The majority of external ageing of the skin is under your control. Eye cream is essential to any preventative skincare routine. Here are some eye products with SPF to indulge in.
Your eye area is ready and waiting to tell a thousand tales. But this beautiful map of your personal history isn't meant to be revealed prematurely. With delicate skin just 1/10 of the thickness of other facial skin, your eye area is vulnerable to internal and external ageing factors.
Eye creams with SPF give the ultimate defence against the development of crow’s feet, fine lines, and eye wrinkles. These petite tubes of protection increase skin's resilience and defend against photodamage.
Why use eye cream with SPF?
Every time your skin is exposed to daylight, it incurs photodamage. 'Photodamage' is a scientific term used to describe the ageing effect of light—specifically, sunlight—on all skin types. Photodamage results in loss of collagen, degradation of elastin, malfunction of pigment cells, dryness, and dehydration.
The visible effects of photodamage are inelasticity, wrinkles, sagging, uneven skin tone, and age spots. These are normal signs of ageing; however, photodamage accelerates their formation exponentially.
Is eye cream with SPF just for summertime?
Our skin is exposed to many types of light daily, but the type most responsible for photodamage is UVA. Unlike UVB light, which changes in intensity seasonally, UVA remains consistent all year round. UVA light causes photodamage without sunburn and without heat.
An estimated 80% of external ageing factors are attributable to sun damage. If you're serious about anti-ageing skincare, eye cream with SPF is as necessary in winter as it is in summer.
The best eye creams with SPF
Grabbing the perfect tube of SPF eye cream puts a firm wedge between you and that 80% potential of photodamage. The best eye creams with SPF also feature a range of powerful antioxidants that help to increase your skin's own resilience, hydration, and health.
