Hydrating eye creams are specifically made to reduce wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles around and under the eyes. Most eye creams contain chemicals that reduce wrinkles by making the skin more elastic, lifting away dead skin cells and providing moisture to keep skin supple, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, according to WebMD. There are several eye creams that provide adequate hydration for healthy looking skin around the eyes.
Korres Evening Primrose Eye Cream
Korres Evening Primrose Eye Cream has a high approval rating by Ulta, a leading cosmetics retailer. Evening Primrose Eye Cream contains primrose oil, ruscus, a flowering plant found in Europe and Asia, and vitamins K and C. These natural ingredients reduce dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. Evening Primrose Eye Cream should be applied one to two times daily. A 1.01-oz. tube costs $38 in 2010.
Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair
Demalogica Intensive Eye Repair is quite an investment, retailing at $47 for a 0.5-oz. tube. However, it rated highly by Ulta. Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair contains Vitamin B-5, A, C and E to repair aging skin and protect the skin against free radicals. It also contains grape seed extract and ginko biloba, which also have protective properties against free radicals. This product contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is a natural substance on the skin and neural tissue that promotes cell regeneration.
Neutrogena Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration Eye Cream
A much more affordable option at $14.99 in 2010, Neutrogena Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration Eye Cream contains vitamin B-5 to hydrate the skin around the eyes and emollients to reduce fine lines and puffiness. The cream should be applied twice a day after washing the face thoroughly and can be worn under makeup.
