When I think of high-performing skincare ingredients, there’s always one in particular that comes to mind, and that’s retinol. According to Anna Harvey, head aesthetician at Thérapie Clinic, not only does retinol have the ability to speed up cell turnover, but it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which makes it a great ingredient for those of us wanting to minimise fine lines and tackle dark circles. However, due to its potency, most retinol skincare products come with strict instructions to avoid applying in the eye area.
Luckily for us though, lots of brands have created retinol eye creams that are specifically designed for the more delicate skin around our eyes, and many of them come with lots of other hydrating ingredients to help minimise irritation. Sounds good, right?
