June 14, 2023

When considering your daily skin care essentials, an eye cream should never be overlooked. While you may feel like the eye creams you’ve tried in the past don’t work, they provide hydration, which is huge for preventing visible signs of aging around the under-eye area, like fine lines, crow’s feet, rough texture and dark circles. Using a formula with hyaluronic acid can make a noticeable impact on your skin’s moisture levels, while simultaneously slowing down signs of aging, so if you’re not using one, it’s a good idea to start. 


Keep reading to learn why adding a hyaluronic acid eye serum, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid, 1% Caffeine Eye Serum to your skin care routine could be the key to preserving your skin’s plump appearance and youthful glow.

What Are the Benefits Of a Hyaluronic Acid Eye Serum?

Hyaluronic acid does wonderful things for the skin, under-eyes included. Here are eight reasons to add a hyaluronic acid eye treatment to your routine. 

1.  It Prevents Dryness

One of the most fragile areas on your face is the skin around your eyes. Constant movements, such as squinting, blinking, winking and wincing can accelerate the common signs of skin aging like crow’s feet. Using a serum with hyaluronic acid brings moisture to this delicate area, helping it to appear tauter while fighting the premature development of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. It Can Soothe Dry Under-Eyes

You might have noticed that the skin around your eyes tends to dry out faster and more easily than other parts of your face, and that's because you have fewer oil-producing glands in areas around your eyes. To make up for this lack of moisture, use an eye cream or serum formulated with hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin, aid in moisture retention and minimize the appearance of dryness.


3. It Can Revive a Dull Complexion

With age, the skin loses some of its natural hyaluronic acid reserves and the ability to retain moisture, causing it to lose its glow and become dull-looking, even in the under-eye area. An eye serum formulated with hyaluronic acid can brighten and smooth the skin’s appearance by plumping it with hydration.


4. It Can Minimize the Appearance Of Dark Circles

Dark circles can make you look tired but the right eye cream can minimize their sullen appearance. An eye treatment, like the Revitalift Derm Intensives with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid, 1 % Caffeine Eye Serum, formulated with hyaluronic acid and caffeine works to minimize the appearance of under-eye bags darkness by brightening the skin under the eye.

5. It Can Alleviate Under-Eye Bags and Puffiness

Under-eye puffiness can happen for a number of reasons but using an eye serum with hyaluronic acid can plump the delicate under-eyes with moisture that can de-puff the area and provide comfort. the Revitalift Derm Intensives with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid, 1% Caffeine Eye Serum comes with  a cooling metal applicator that gently massages the under-eye area to eliminate morning puffiness.

Dip the applicator into the serum and roll it over the contours of your eye area, including the temples, eyelids and under the eyes. Repeat on both eyes about three to four times, giving your under-eyes a soothing massage as you hydrate them. Then, tap in any excess serum with your ring finger (it has the lightest touch), allowing it to absorb quickly into the skin before you move on to the next step in your skin care routine.

6. It Works to Prevent Wrinkles

Unfortunately, there’s no way to completely avoid wrinkles because they happen with age (and genetics), but being proactive with your skin care routine and practices can really help to prevent and reduce their appearance. Twice a day, use an anti-aging eye treatment with hyaluronic acid and Pro-Retinol, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Eye Treatment, to improve skin elasticity, visibly brighten and reduce wrinkles. 


7. It Plumps the Skin

Instead of stressing about under-eye bags and wrinkles, apply an eye serum formulated with hyaluronic acid to plump the skin and make wrinkles less noticeable. Remember, hyaluronic acid works like a sponge, drawing in moisture, so it’s great for skin that looks lifeless and flat, under-eyes included.

8. It Can Help to Eliminate Cakey Concealer

If your under-eye concealer looks dry and cakey, this may be because your under-eyes are lacking moisture. Before you do your makeup, apply a hydrating eye serum and let it absorb into the skin to prime the area with moisture. As a result, your concealer will apply much smoother and fine lines will be less noticeable.

Editor’s tip: Along with eye serum, use an under-eye concealer with hyaluronic acid, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Eye Cream in a Concealer, 0.5 Percent Hyaluronic Acid to get the benefits of eye cream and concealer in one.
