If you’ve ever looked at the shelves of eye cream products at your drugstore, you know there are a baffling variety of choices. A recent segment on Good Morning America sought to cut through the clutter with an “Eye Cream Dream Team” of 10 prominent dermatologists. They highlighted some of the ingredients and products that actually produce results.
One of the featured products was TNS Eye Repair, which was recommended by the dermatologists more than any other high-end brand. According to Dr. Doris Day, TNS Eye Repair goes “above and beyond in helping repair many of the problems that people complain about. And I’ve seen really great results.”
SkinMedica TNS is an intensive anti-aging skincare regimen. It uses ingredients that are proven to be effective in diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. They can also combat dark circles under the eyes. These rejuvenating ingredients include vitamins A, C, and E; alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids; peptides; and growth factors.
As well, there are certain ingredients that can target particular problems with the skin. What types of ingredients do the dermatologists recommend for skincare issues?
- Wrinkles: Retinol increases collagen and elasticity, and decreases fine lines.
- Dark circles: look for creams that contain a concealer, tint, or brightener
- Puffiness: caffeine is actually quite soothing to the eye area, so look for a cream that contains caffeine
The dermatologists also recommended a surprising celebrity favorite for puffiness. Preparation H – the popular hemorrhoid cream – is highly effective at combating puffiness around the eyes.
Before searching for your perfect eye cream, it’s important that you pinpoint your specific skin issue. It helps to consult with skincare professionals who understand your unique skin. They can help you find the skincare products that are right for you. As well, they may recommend other anti-aging skin treatments, such as an IPL photofacial or chemical peel.
