Eye creams can be worth adding to your skincare regimen to help reduce the effects of sun damage and counteract reduced collagen production.


"Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eye, so they tend to be thicker. They contain more oil than a regular facial lotion, and they have a lot of active ingredients aimed at the problems we see around the eyes."

Dermatologist Patricia Farris, MD, a clinical associate professor at Tulane University School of Medicine told "WebMD."
