Do I Need an Eye Cream?

The cost of anti-aging skin care products can really add up; are all the creams, serums, and other add-ons really necessary? Do I need an eye cream, adding another $20 to $100 dollars to my quarterly skin care bill, to have beautiful eyes? Isn't a good nourishing, hydrating cream enough for my entire face?

Skin care companies will of course go into great detail about the benefits of using an eye cream or serum. Depending on which product you use, they are said to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and of course, fine lines and wrinkles. When I searched the web (our modern day library of information for better or worse), I found a resounding no when it comes to the eye cream question from about a dozen dermatologists.

What no one disagrees about is that the under eye area is delicate, so no harsh ingredients close to your eyes! I, now that I've reached my 30s, of course think about that anti-aging skin care strategy a lot. Not one wants wrinkles, fine lines, and tired-looking eyes. So, yes, I've experimented with eye creams and I do like them, although I'll admit some have seemed worthless. I ran out of my homemade eye serum (will post on recipes this week) and recently purchased the Acure Eye Cream. It contains a lot of antioxidants from pomegranate, acai, and goji berry. Full disclosure, I have no affiliation with Acure. I do at least imagine a difference with the eye cream. I also don't put my rich and creamy moisturizing cream up to my eye countour, so for me using a homemade serum or reasonably priced, antioxidant-rich eye cream has its advantages.

What is the secret to gorgeous eyes? From my experience, the simple formula to all good health — plenty of sleep, yoga in the morning, a walk in the afternoon, a healthy fruit and veggie based diet, and plenty of water and tea. This formula will do more for your eyes than any high-end product.

Have you had any luck with eye creams? If so, please share; we are all looking for those holy grail anti-aging products!
