Not all skin is created equal.
Because the skin around your eyes is thinner than other areas of your face, it's more sensitive and prone to puffiness, discoloration and yep, those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Now add in the fact that the skin on the upper eyelids is different — and should be treated differently — than skin around the under-eye area and suddenly you’re at a loss. Should you use one eye cream or two? How do you know which eye cream firms sagging eyelids and which one works overnight to erase dark circles? Luckily, we’ve got the answer. Read on for all the details!
Q & A with Dr. Kim Nichols, Avon's board-certified dermatologist:
Q: Wait — can we backup? The skin on my upper eyelids and under-eye areas are different?
A: Yes. Skin on and around the eyelid area is very thin, which makes it prone to drooping as we age. Enter the gel in our Eye Lift Pro — it’s packed with arginine, an essential amino acid that helps build the collagen needed to firm loose skin. As for those under-eye bags? Chalk that up to fluid buildup. Caffeine in our cream boosts circulation to help flush all of that out.
Q: Tell me more.
A: Eye Lift Pro is the total (eye care) package. Injectable-grade, arginine-enriched gel lifts the upper eye; a caffeine-infused cream de-puffs under eyes.
