Do We Really Need Eye Cream?

The debate about the necessity of eye creams has been ongoing for years. Some people swear by them, while others question their effectiveness. So, do we really need eye cream? Let's take a closer look.

Fact 1: The Skin Around the Eyes is Extra Delicate

The skin around the eyes is fragile and requires special attention and care. This area of skin is thinner, more sensitive, and produces less oil than other parts of the face, making it more prone to dryness and fine lines. Additionally, the average person blinks about 20,000 times a day, which puts additional strain on the skin and can lead to dullness.

Eye creams are formulated to be gentler and less irritating than other face products, making them a good option for those with sensitive skin. They often contain ingredients that are specifically designed to address the unique needs of the delicate skin around the eyes.

Fact 2: Face Products Already Meet Most Eye Contour Needs

While it's true that face products can help address many of the same issues that eye creams are designed to tackle, they may not be as effective for the delicate skin around the eyes. This is because most traditional eye creams have antiseptic systems, surfactants, colloids, and waxes. In order to preserve the cream's stability, it is necessary to sacrifice its active density while relying on surfactants and other non-essential ingredients.

However, some people even think that heavy eye cream is the reason for Milia, small white bumps that can form around the eyes. If the skincare product you choose has small molecules like peptides, an eye cream may not be necessary.

Juvenu, for example, uses a minimalist skin care method that takes care of your skin with one serum. Our serum is very gentle, full of active peptides, and can help address many of the same issues that traditional eye creams are designed to tackle.

In summary, the answer to the question of whether we really need an eye cream is not a simple yes or no. If you have sensitive skin or are concerned about protecting the delicate skin around your eyes, an eye cream may be a good investment for your daily beauty routine. However, if you're already using a high-quality face product that is gentle and contains active peptides, an eye cream may not be necessary. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what's best for your skin.
