It’s no secret that our eyes are one of the first places to show the signs of aging and some not-so-great lifestyle choices. Crow’s feet, dark circles, puffiness… you name it. Fortunately, there are some amazing skincare ingredients out there that can offset even the most pesky under-eye concerns and get you back to a youthful, glowing state. Let’s take a look at the Top 5 ingredients for youthful eyes.


One of the most versatile ingredients out there, peptides help to improve skin’s natural barrier by supporting moisture retention and elasticity. When incorporating them into your eye care routine you can expect to see less dryness, smoother texture and softening of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate (a derivative) are powerful humectants that draw moisture into skin. Some of the benefits of hydrated undereyes include improved smoothness, a more balanced skin barrier and plumping of crow’s feet.

Just like a cup of coffee, caffeine helps to invigorate  and liven-up tired under-eyes. Ingredients like Coffee Cherry are rich in caffeine and help to reduce the look of puffiness and illuminate the appearance of dark circles.

Amino & Fatty Acids

Ingredients like Shea Butter and Arginine bring on the nourishment to keep you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. Delicate under-eye skin will quickly appear more youthful and plump with less visible fine lines and uneven texture.

Centella Asiatica

Packed with antioxidants, this ultra-reparative herb helps to calm and soothe stressed-out skin while helping defend it from aging environmental stressors. Using it will help soften signs of damage and keep delicate skin resilient and less susceptible to damage.

No tugging, pulling or rubbing! The skin under your eyes is about 10x thinner than the rest of your face which means it’s much easier to upset and damage. Avoid expediting those premature signs of aging by applying your products in gentle pressing or tapping motions only.
