8 eye creams and serums to fix your flaws

There are two types of people in this world: those who never skip their eye cream and religiously slather it on; and those who believe it is just moisturizer in mini jars. Well, it’s true but not entirely. Every eye cream arrives on the shelves with different tasks, from depuffing the under eye area to addressing pigmentation and the appearance of fine lines. They tend to have lower concentration of active ingredients as the eye area skin is far more delicate than the rest of the face and you wouldn’t want to bother it with anything harsh. It is also more dryness and fine-line-prone due to the lack of oil glands and collagen, explained why antioxidants and plumping agents always lead the charge in eyecare formula.
