When to Use Eye Cream | Best Eye Cream From 20s-60s | No7 Beauty

The first signs of aging typically appear around the eyes, as this skin is up to 20 times thinner and more fragile than the rest of your body. It’s particularly prone to fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness, making eye cream an essential step in your skincare routine – even from an early age. Keep reading to discover when to start using eye cream and how to find the best eye cream for your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s…

When should you start using eye cream?

When it comes to maintaining youthful, healthy-looking skin, prevention is key – particularly around the eyes. To delay the signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet) and counteract the appearance of dryness, puffiness and dark circles, it’s advised to start using an eye cream as early as your 20s.

However, the eye cream used will vary depending on age and skin concerns. Below, we explain what happens to the eye area as you age and recommend the best eye cream to improve the appearance of the undereye area.

    The best eye cream for your 20s

    In your 20s, skin is typically naturally plump and firm. However, environmental and lifestyle factors (including sun damage and lack of sleep) can affect the health of skin, resulting in the appearance of dark circles and eye bags. To keep skin looking bright and fresh, opt for a hydrating and energizing eye cream.

    No7 Radiance+ Roll & Glow Eye Cream is formulated with Vitamin C, color-correcting pigments and caffeine to help reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness, lending the eye area a refreshed, rested and radiant appearance.

    The best eye cream for your 30s

    After the age of 30, the body naturally begins to produce less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which are key to maintaining plump, firm and healthy-looking skin. Fine lines usually start to appear around the eyes at this time, while dark circles and puffiness grow more noticeable. To maintain youthful-looking skin, opt for an eye cream that helps to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier and lock in hydration.

    No7 Early Defence Eye Cream is formulated with our Double Defence technology to help protect and enhance the skin’s defenses against environmental stressors. A blend of lipopeptides and Vitamins A and C also help to reduce the appearance of early fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.

    The best anti-aging eye cream for your 40s

    From your 40s, the skin’s natural renewal process slows, resulting in dull, dry skin, as well as more prominent fine lines and wrinkles. To help support skin’s natural renewal process, apply an eye cream that is rich in peptides and helps to maintain the skin’s moisture levels.

    No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream is powered by our anti-wrinkle peptide technology, Matrixyl 3000+, and our Double Defense Technology to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark shadows, and puffiness. With continued use, skin looks visibly smoother and younger.

    The best anti-aging eye cream for your 50s

    Pre and post-menopausal skin is prone to thinning, sagging and wrinkles, often resulting in the deepening of crow’s feet, dark circles and dry patches of skin. Opt for a rich and deeply hydrating eye cream that helps to even skin tone and smooth the skin.

    No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Eye Serum is formulated with our Triple Action technology to help combat 3 key signs of aging. Peptides, hyaluronic acid and hibiscus leave skin feeling firmer, while Vitamin C helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation for a more even-looking skin tone.

    The best anti-aging eye cream for your 60s

    In your 60s, the top two layers of the skin (the epidermis and dermis) grow thinner and flatter, resulting in dryness and crepiness. A highly concentrated, powerful eye cream is needed to help reduce these signs of aging.

    No7 Restore & Renew Multi Action Eye Cream combines our unique anti-wrinkle, firming and brightening complexes to target the 5 key signs of aging. With continued use, deep wrinkles look less prominent and the skin feels firmer. The under-eye area also looks lifted, brighter and more even, with dark circles and puffiness appearing visibly reduced.
