Why An Eye Serum is so Important to Your Skincare Regimen
April 13, 20223 min read
There are a few elements to your daily skincare regimen that are essential, especially if you’re focused on anti-aging benefits. One of those steps is (you guessed it) using an eye serum.
Whether you’re a long-time skincare lover or someone who’s just starting to think about their regimen, the skin around your eyes is most likely a point of discussion. Between crows feet, dark circles, puffiness and more we’re all just trying to see how we can slow those aging signs.
The best way to care for the skin around your eyes? Using an eye serum (that actually works) consistently.
In this post, we’re going to dive into the importance and benefits of using an eye serum along with which ones do the work to fight aging.
Why An Eye Serum is so Important
When aging starts to kick in, you’ll notice that the skin around your eyes is one of the first areas that begins to change. Typically, this starts happening in your mid-twenties, but depending on the person it can happen before or after. It’s all about the individual!
Either way, the best way to fight aging is to take care of your skin early. Since your eyes are one of those first areas to show it, it’s important to incorporate an eye serum into your daily regimen. That means using a serum on both below your eyes and even your upper eyelid- it’s really important to treat the entire eye contour to see anti aging results!
But why is it that the skin around your eyes needs that extra love and care?
One of the biggest reasons is because the skin around your eyes is incredibly thin. This means it’s more prone to damage and aging. This means, those wrinkles and loose skin we all try to avoid will appear much earlier. Additionally, higher screen time, stress and sleep deprivation can all contribute to the aging around eyes as well.
That’s exactly why an eye serum is so essential. The right eye serum will help strengthen, tighten and hydrate the skin around your eyes. By doing this daily, you’ll not only fight the signs of aging, but keep the skin around your eyes healthier and stronger.
What to Look for in an Eye Serum
So, what exactly is it that you need to look for in an eye serum? You’ll want to look for one that firms, focuses on improving elasticity, deeply hydrates, depuffs and of course, improves the appearance of wrinkles that may already be there.
Many eye serums promise this, but you want to make sure the ingredients match the promises.
For example, our Ultimate Hydration Firming Eye Serum promises all of that. But the powerful 4 in 1 treatment has actually been clinically proven to do exactly what we just described; improve firmness, elasticity, hydration and the appearance of wrinkles- all of this, after just 1 use!
To do this, Dr. Kaplan included an exclusive Liquid Crystal ingredient. This allows skin to reflect light, but because it’s so fragile he introduced a Pearl-within-a-Pearl technology. That technology completely encapsulates the Liquid Crystal inside a second pearl which is completely filled with something the skin around your eyes really need – Hyaluronic Acid, this is a deeply hydrating ingredient.
Further, the Ultimate Hydration Firming Eye Serum also houses Dr. Kaplan’s Certified Organic Complex of 22 Plant Extracts which are antioxidants that work to fight free-radicals and nourish your skin. There’s also 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid within the product which are different molecular weights, quenching the skin with incredible bounce and hydration.
Kelp Elixir is also sitting within the product to help tighten skin instantly while Mushroom Extract works on anti-wrinkle benefits and reduces puffiness. This isn’t all the Ultimate Hydration Firming Eye Serum has to benefit the skin around your eyes (and your upper eyelid!). Yes, this product can, and should, also be used on your upper eyelid. This is important because your upper eyelid ages too and if you don’t focus on that area as much as the rest, then it’s not going to get the same anti-aging benefits! That means your upper eyelid will start showing more sagging, wrinkles and more before anywhere else. That’s why Dr. Kaplan likes to remind all his patients that treating the whole eye is essential!
