A common misconception of people who suffer from undereye puffiness is that they are sleep deprived. But aging, genetics, allergies and consumption of salty foods also may cause the collection of fluids in the area. Using a product that contains Retinol however, may help alleviate the condition.
Definition of Retinol
What is Retinol? Basically Retinol is the antioxidant vitamin A in its purest form. And it has the ability to increase collagen production and restore elasticity in the skin. This makes it a good product for tightening the delicate skin under the eyes.
Where to find Retinol
It can be found in both over the counter and in prescription products. Eye creams containing Retinol can be found at your local drugstore or at a high end boutiques and in dermatologists' offices. RoC, Avon and Philosophy all make their own name brands of over the counter eye creams that include Retinol. But prescriptions are usually limited to two products called Retin-A and Renova.
Consult your Dermatologist
There are so many eye creams containing Retinol that it's almost impossible to know which one will work for you or how much is in the product that will suit you best. Consult your dermatologist or skin care professional for a proper evaluation, as they are best able to recommend the most effective Retinol-based creams to banish your undereye puffiness.
