Ingredients to Look for in a Nighttime Eye Cream

July 15, 2021

When it comes to our skin, there is one area we often tend to neglect, focused more on those frown lines on our forehead or those lines around our mouths, that actually give beautiful character!


If you guessed your eyes then you would be correct; the skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body and there are very few oil glands under the eyes. Thin skin combined with very little natural hydration is a recipe for accelerated aging, lines and puffiness if you aren’t taking proper care of your peepers. 


In today’s post we want to give you a little sneak peek into a beautifully, luxurious and wonderfully hydrating eye cream we are working on that will give your eyes the boost you need!


The ingredients we have chosen are designed to work with your skin while you get your beauty rest, if you’d like to learn more about our daytime caffeine-rich eye cream, designed to wake up your eyes in the morning then you can read about that here.


For now, let’s dive into the type of ingredients you absolutely want to see in your nighttime eye cream!


Chamomile Extract

We love sipping on a steaming mug of chamomile to help us wind down after a long day, to help us drift off at night or to simply help to relax us when life’s challenges feel a little overwhelming. 


Many people love placing cooled chamomile tea bags directly over their eyes to enjoy their soothing properties, but we have infused chamomile extract right into this eye cream formula!


Chamomile will help to relax tired eyes, helping you to appear more refreshed the next morning, and its rich flavonoid content helps to fight inflammation and will ensure the skin around your eyes looks its best!

Calendula Extract

This vibrant orange-gold flower, also known as “pot marigold” has a heap of skin loving benefits, especially for the delicate and vulnerable under-eye skin. 


It’s absolutely bursting with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to boost collagen production for more youthful looking eyes, while adding a deep dose of nourishment and hydration that will help to plump up your under-eye skin and send those bags packing.

 

Lavender Essential Oil

Ah, how we adore this beautiful floral essential oil! Just one whiff of lavender can calm a frazzled mind and sleeping with some under your pillow can help you to enjoy better sleep. 


When it comes to your eyes, lavender has lovely soothing and cooling properties to help firm up the skin and it actually helps to drain excess fluid under the eyes that can cause bags. 


We wanted to create an eye cream that is as soothing for your mind as it is for your under-eyes as you indulge in your evening ritual and we think the beautiful ingredients we have incorporated into this eye cream will help you to wind down while providing all the protection your eyes need!

 

 We can’t wait for you to try this deeply hydrating and nourishing eye cream for yourself. You, and your eyes, deserve to be pampered!
