Help prevent wrinkles
Without under eye moisture, your result is dull, dry, flaky, irritated skin and often those pesky lines and wrinkles. As a matter of fact, dehydration is a major contributor to dark circles, under-eye bags, lines and wrinkles.

Proper hydration is wonderful for the skin, but is drinking water enough to prevent wrinkles? No, but hydrated skin will go a long way with helping to keep your skin looking its best.

What about under-eye creams? Do they help with wrinkles? Yes, seems to be the obvious answer for most people, but the answer isn’t as straightforward as you would think. It’s true, when you look at dry moisture deprived skin you often see more wrinkles, but believe it or not, applying too much under-eye cream can bring negative effects to your skin. Your skin absorbs what it needs. Any excess moisturizer can sometimes clog your pores and give your skin a dull appearance. Using too much cream or moisturizer can leave your skin feeling irritated. Dr. Jessie Cheung stated “piling on creams can cause problems you never imagined.”

How much under-eye cream should you use? In a nutshell, don’t overdo it, more isn’t better.

While the use of under-eye creams and moisturizers will not prevent wrinkles, it will without a doubt help lines appear less prominent. Just be mindful of using the proper amount and proper ingredients best suited for your skin type. And on those days that you need a little more help with your under-eye bags, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and dark circles use Plexaderm.
