##Intensely moisturising eye creams: for dry skin##
If you have dry skin, the best eye cream for nighttime is one that’s rich in emollients and antioxidants. During the day, you can go lighter, but make sure your cream still contains antioxidants, moisturisers, skin-repairing ingredients and a high SPF. Tissue masks are a great way to give your skin a quick moisture boost, enhancing your eye cream’s effect – try the Garnier Hydra Bomb Pomegranate Serum Sheet Mask to calm and deeply moisturise the delicate skin around your eyes. Here are some ingredients you should look for in your moisturizer when dealing with dry skin on your face.
##Antioxidant-rich eye creams: for oily skin ##
With an oily complexion you may not need as much moisturisation, but hydration is still essential for the sensitive, delicate and wrinkle-prone eye area. The *best nighttime eye cream* for you will be an antioxidant-rich moisturiser or a serum. For daytime, pick a light eye cream with sun protection.
##Soothing eye creams: to combat puffiness##
If puffiness is the issue, the best eye cream will be the one that soothes your skin and improves circulation. Again, overnight formulas can often yield dramatic results, especially when accompanied by a full night’s sleep. Use an eye cream enriched with Pro Vitamin B5 like the Garnier Bright Complete Eye Roll on to hydrate the skin and boost the eye contour area so your eyes feel fresh and rejuvenated.
##Eye creams with micro-pigments: to fight dark circles##
An eye cream with micro-pigments to provide optical correction – giving a smooth and bright look – can have an instant, visible effect. An illuminating formula subtly reduces signs of tiredness around the eyes by disguising dark circles and discolouration. Always remember to pick one that offers sun protection to avoid any further damage.
##Eye creams that lock in moisture: to reduce fine lines##
Night cream is optimal for reducing fine lines, as it takes advantage of your skin’s natural nightly renewal process to smooth and rejuvenate the eye area. During the day, go for an eye cream aimed at smoothing the skin and locking in moisture. To speed up the line-reducing effect, use a mask that targets wrinkles, such as the Garnier Ageless White Serum Sheet Mask.
