Whether it’s for the face, body, or skin around the eyes, creams are designed for specific purposes. But the skin tissue around the eye is particularly delicate, so it’s important to protect that area with proper skincare and gentle yet effective ingredients.
Simple Beauty has set out to make experiencing beautiful skincare easier for you, and you don’t have to worry about what’s in the products you choose because we’ve done the work for you. Let’s discuss the eyes for a moment, shall we?
The eyes have it
Ah yes, the eyes are the window to the soul, but they’re also often the key to your age. Unfortunately, your eyes are one area that reflects a lot of those pesky signs of aging.
From fine lines and wrinkles to dark bags and puffiness, your eyes can dramatically impact the way you look. This is why prioritizing your eye area skincare plan is a big way to improve your overall appearance.
How do you create this plan of attack that puts your eyes first? The following tips will help you get started.
Eye moisturizer importance
The fragile and thin skin around your eyes wrinkles easily and becomes even thinner over time. That means that it needs a different set of products than the rest of your face and a different approach. The key to a bright and youthful appearance is proper nutrition and ample amounts of moisture.
When treating your eyes, you never want to be aggressive. This means that you don’t want to scrub hard at them, especially when removing makeup, and you don’t want to use harsh or heavy chemicals and products. Treat your eyes and the surrounding skin with care and ingredients that are designed to target that area.
If you’ve been using an eye cream in the past, you already understand the importance of hydrating this easily dried area of your face. Hydration “fills in” fine lines and wrinkles and makes them seem to disappear. It also supports proper circulation for fewer bags and dark circles.
The bad news is that your eye cream might not be the best product for your eyes. The great news is it can still be an important part of the solution, it just needs to be paired with an eye serum.
Why is an eye serum better than an eye cream?
Eye creams have been the holy grail of a great eye skincare regimen for ages. Now their stronger, big sister has entered the fray, and eye serums are earning a solid reputation. Eye serums are able to penetrate the skin more deeply, so they can deliver more powerful ingredients, and they do it faster.
One of the best things about eye serums is that they are absorbed quickly and without greasy residue. This, of course, is good for the delicate skin around your eye, but it’s also great because it primes your skin for makeup. This means you can apply your serum in the morning, and almost immediately after, you can put your makeup on for the day.
Important eye serum ingredients
Because eye serums are so efficient in their ingredient delivery, the ingredients they use become even more important. You want the best products, so your eyes look brighter, less puffy, and you have the power to fight fine lines and wrinkles.
A few of these ingredients might be new to you, as they are typically only found in eye serums and not eye creams. A few of the others are old friends that you know work wonders on your skin.
Eyeliss (protein peptides)
This is one of those ingredients that you typically find only in eye serums, not creams. This special combination of protein peptides helps keep the area under your skin from holding onto fluids and swelling, so you have fewer bags and puffiness.
Another ingredient that’s almost exclusive to eye serums is Matrixyl. This is another peptide that works to plump and moisturizes the area around your eyes by supporting collagen production.
An old favorite, aloe, is known for its soothing properties, but it’s also loaded with moisture. It soothes, softens, and moisturizes your skin to a youthfully supple finish with diminished fine lines and wrinkles.
Chamomile flower extract
Your favorite tea for its mild flavor is also a favorite for your skin because of its soothing and conditioning qualities that can rejuvenate skin cells to slow the development of wrinkles.
Green tea extract
Speaking of rejuvenating qualities, green tea contains EGCG polyphenols, which are strong antioxidants that can help prevent collagen from breaking down.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body, and lately, it’s been the wunderkind of skincare ingredients. There’s a good reason you’re hearing so much about it. It effectively brings moisture to the skin, reduces wrinkles, and can even fight redness.
Simple Beauty Fine Line Eye Serum
With a serious focus on harnessing the power of potent botanicals to create clinically proven results, Simple Beauty’s Fine Line Eye Serum is an eye care delight. The ingredients form a checklist of what you want to use to nourish, moisturize, and brighten your skin. This collection of ingredients results in a fast-acting serum to quickly give your skin the youthful and brighter appearance it deserves.

To put it simply
If you want to add something special to your skincare regimen, then Fine Line Eye Serum is a stellar choice. Eye serums, in general, are a great way to boost the power of your skincare regimen by giving the delicate skin around your eyes the moisture it needs and wants.
