Eye area is one of the most delicate areas of the entire body, and great caution must be exercised while picking a product for eye care. The most common issues related to the eye area include dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness.

Investing in a good quality eye serum can go a long way in improving the appearance and health of the eye area. An ideal eye serum is a very lightweight formulation that has a higher percentage of a few chosen active ingredients. It is very important that an eye serum be as chemical free (preferably preservative free also) as possible. Synthetic active ingredients can irritate the delicate aye area, and can cause dryness, itchiness etc. Also a serum with a very long ingredient list should be avoided (same is true for all skin care products in general). A simple formulation with few active ingredients is far better than a product with a long list of ingredients that are often unfamiliar and hard to pronounce.

An ideal eye serum could have a natural base like sweet almond oil, which has been used for centuries for its wonderful anti-aging properties. It is full of natural proteins and essential fatty acids that nourish the eye area, and delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. With continued use the appearance of existing fine lines is also diminished.

Another ingredient that has been in use for centuries for reduction of dark under and over eye circles is cucumber. It is not only very refreshing to the eyes, but also a very good source of vitamin C. With continued use cucumber can reduce darkening of the skin in the eye area.

An ingredient which is very well known to reduce discoloration of skin is turmeric. In Ayurveda (3000+ year-old system of health and wellbeing that originated in India) turmeric is very commonly prescribed for its skin lightening properties, and this makes its use in an eye serum very desirable.

While applying an eye serum use your ring fingers to minimize pressure, and massage the area with gentle circular strokes. And remember when it comes to caring for your eyes, less is more. Too much of an eye care product used at once can actually worsen the puffiness. So little goes a long way.
