Daily use of the best eye cream in Malaysia 2020 provide extra moisture as your skin gets older!

Eye creams differ from your regular moisturizer. As they are specially formulated for the skin around your eyes! Which is thinner and more delicate that the rest of your face! Easily prone to UV damage and irritation too!

Read these eye cream reviews to find an eye cream that could be your next holy grail product!

How To Choose The Best Eye Cream

1. What Ingredients To Look For 

  • Niacinamide – Brightening ingredient found in most whitening creams
  • Hyaluronic acid – Your skin already has this but a boost doesn’t hurt! It helps your skin retain moisture
  • Ceramides – Also act as a moisture barrier
  • Antioxidants – Ingredients like vitamin E, C and ferulic acid can reduce the damage caused by UV rays and other pollutants
  • Retinol – Another form of vitamin A. It increases collagen production to maintain your skin’s elasticity
  • Peptides – The building blocks for hyaluronic acid and collagen
  • SunscreenTitanium dioxide is a common sunscreen ingredient in eye creams
  • Glycerin – For additional moisture
  • Caffeine – Encourages blood flow (i.e. to combat dark circles or puffy eyes)
  • Calming ingredients to reduce puffiness – like green tea, cucumber, aloe vera, chamomile, licorice, coconut oil
  • Natural ingredients are less likely to irritate the sensitive skin around your eyes – shea butter, rosemary, jojoba oil, beeswax, etc. The best lip balms use these too!

2. What Ingredients To Avoid

  • Artificial fragrances – Irritating with no real purpose other than to smell nice
  • Alcohol – Drying
  • Preservatives
  • Silicones – Give an “instant” effect of smoother skin but can block pores
  • Parabens – Avoid as much as possible; Associated with causing skin cancer, increased skin sensitivity and even leads to UV skin damage

How Best To Apply Eye Cream

To make the most of your eye cream:

  • Keep your eye cream in the fridge (not freezer) when you’re not using it. The cold helps to reduce puffiness.
  • Always apply your eye cream on a clean face! After your facial cleanser (or cleansing oil if you double cleanse) and toner!
  • Use your ring finger and not our pointer finger to dab the product onto your skin gently.
  • Do not tug or pull your skin!
  • Massage the area around your eyes with light pats in a circular motion (inside to outside)
  • Apply your eye cream twice a day! Morning and night.

Conclusion

A good majority of eye creams in Malaysia (especially the more affordable products) depend on silicones to give you immediate results of youthful skin around your eyes. Unfortunately, this is only a temporary effect.

For long term use, look for products with antioxidants and moisture-sealing ingredients! If you would like to avoid silicones, try items 4, 5, 6 and 11!
