“The eyes are the window to the soul,” says an English proverb. And it is so accurate! Our facial expressions say more about us than we think. So, what do we want our eyes to tell people?

The eye area is one of the first places to show signs of aging, and all of our facial expressions and movements like frowning and smiling create fine lines, crow’s feet, and laugh lines. Lack of sleep, getting a lot of sun without sunscreen, getting stressed, and eating unhealthy foods can also damage your skin. And as you probably have already noticed, the skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and is the first area to show signs of aging.

We wish we could always look young, and we definitely can by taking good care of our skin.

Some don’t believe eye creams work, and that a regular face cream can work well for the eye area. However, “Eye creams are formulated specifically for the delicate skin around the eye, so they tend to be thicker. They contain more oil than regular facial lotion, and have a lot of active ingredients aimed at the problems we see around the eyes,” says Los Angeles-based dermatologist Patricia Ferris. So, if you are wondering if you should use eye cream, the answer is YES!

Here, we’ve got the best ways to tackle trouble spots:
