Anti Aging Eye Cream And Products For Sensitive Skin

There are many complicated things in life; filing taxes, establishing balance within relationships, self-checkout baggage areas… taking care of your under-eyes doesn’t need to be added to the list.

It’s no secret that the under-eyes are the first signs of aging; wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear as little as our early thirties! We can thank our ultra-delicate skin for that, which is more susceptible to sun damage, irritation, dryness, and more.

Pair our unforgivable under-eyes with sensitive skin and we really do have a recipe for disaster. Thankfully though, with the right products on your nightstand, aging, sensitivities, and a little bit of TLC can all be covered in one quick swipe - and you don’t have to sacrifice your sanity in return!

4 Common signs of aging eyes

Whether you’re struggling with wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, or simply the wrath of a few restless nights, eyes can be pretty ruthless when it comes to aging. Before we can figure out the best way to tackle this, we first have to understand why our under-eyes are the first to go.

Here are a few main factors:

  1. The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate and thin. As we get older, the skin loses collagen, which means it is more prone to developing wrinkles and fine lines. Elastin is another protein that begins to break down with age, which is what makes your skin tight and prevents wrinkles.

  2. Naturally, the tissue below our eyes lacks a lot of essential elements that make our skin strong - this can lead to sunken eyes - paired with not drinking enough water or having one too many coffees.

  3. Smiling may be good for the soul, but that’s not to say your under-eyes are very thankful. Repetitive facial movements and expressions can lead to wrinkles - squinting being the main culprit. This again ties in with collagen, making it harder for the skin to spring back into place. Though, that isn’t to say we should smile less!

  4. And of course, dark circles are the ultimate reminder of stress, a lack of sleep, being on social media late at night, and a poor diet.

Best Ingredients For Treating Sensitive Under-Eyes 

Sifting through the millions of anti-aging products out there would take a lifetime (which is rather counterproductive!) especially when you have other factors to consider such as sensitivities.

To make the task a little easier for you, here are Dēpology’s top 3 ingredients for the best anti-aging eye cream for sensitive skin.

1. Black Caviar

Black caviar is one of Dēpology’s favorite ingredients (which is why we feature it in our Moisturizing Caviar Multi Balm Stick and our Black Caviar Collagen Under Eye Patches due to the plethora of tasty benefits available. This emollient active ingredient works to increase hydration, moisture levels, and plump fine lines and wrinkles. Along with this anti-aging goodness, it can lower inflammation and soothe the skin.

If you’d like to know more about how black caviar can not only benefit our bellies, check out our previous blog.

2. Shea Butter

Shea butter is sourced from the nuts of a Karite tree and works as a soothing solution for all ages and skin types.

Also known as Butyrospermum Parkii, Shea butter helps to repair skin conditions such as dryness, flaky skin, and eczema, while also aiding in anti-aging by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It is also known to soothe sensitive and irritated skin, making it an ideal ingredient for under-eye cream for sensitive skin. More info on Shea Butter on Eczema.

You can find Shea butter in our Anti-Aging Retinol Night Cream.

3. Aloe Vera

When searching for the best anti-aging eye serum, keep an eye out for aloe vera. When used as an antioxidant, aloe works to combat free radicals. In turn, this helps with slowing down the aging appearance of our under-eyes. Some studies show that aloe can actually improve collagen and aid skin elasticity.

Of course, when it comes to the sensitive side of things, aloe is always a go-to for skin smoothing and hydration and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

What Is A Good Eye Cream For Sensitive Skin?

The best anti-aging eye cream for sensitive skin will take both factors into account. A good cream won’t sacrifice one for the other - it is possible to have the best of both worlds!

However, it is important to note that even though a good anti-aging cream for the eyes is essential, the things we can do to improve our skin doesn’t stop there. Anti-aging eye serum and eye patches compliment the right eye cream perfectly.

Take our Anti-Aging Trio Set for example. This set includes some of our most popular products, including our Anti-Aging Retinol Night Cream, Matrixyl 3000® Serum, and Deepcare+™ Serum Infused Micro Dart Patches.

While these products work wonders alone, they’re even more delicious when paired together; creating the ultimate Sunday night pamper sesh. These products can be used with almost any skin type, and work to reduce signs of aging as well as heal tired and irritated skin.

Deepcare+™ Serum Infused Micro Dart Patches
