Eye cream is different from other moisturizers because the skin around your eyes is different. The orbital area (area around your eyes) is extremely fragile. This area lacks sweat glands, leaving it susceptible to dryness, irritation, and wrinkles.
In addition, the under eye area tends to become puffy and dark with age, sleep deprivation, and/or other environmental factors.
Eye cream is formulated with special ingredients that help hydrate, tighten, and brighten – depending on the product.
