How Do Under-Eye Patches work?

Under-eye patches or under-eye masks help to keep the skin hydrated and thus fight the signs of aging. These patches target the dark circles, wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and puffiness. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, retinol, niacinamide, and caffeine keep the skin hydrated and reduce the signs of aging.

If you are experiencing a lack of sleep due to work stress, or noticeable signs of aging on your face, you can consider using under-eye patches to get miraculous results. However, you need to know how exactly they work to make the right decision. This will enable you to decide easily about using the patches or the kind of patches you need.

Under Eye Patches – The Basics

The skin under our eyes is very delicate. This portion of the facial skin needs ample nourishment and moisturization. The skin around the eyes has fewer oil-producing sebaceous glands as compared to other parts of the facial skin. This makes the under-eye area drier than other parts of the face. The under-eye skin is also delicate and thin, making it prone to wrinkles and other signs of aging.

The primary function of an under-eye patch is to keep the keep under-eye skin moisturized. Keeping the skin well-moisturized ensures a reduction of puffiness and the formation of dark circles.

There are different ingredients present in an under-eye patch. All of them have their specific purposes. It is the presence of a specific ingredient that determines the function of a patch. We can broadly divide the purposes of under-eye patches depending on the ingredients they contain.

Under Eye Patch For Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eye can be a result of numerous factors. Oversleeping or sleep deprivation is a major cause. Other reasons like heredity, genes, allergies, chronic infection of the sinus gland, and pigmentation abnormalities can also result in dark circles. Even the best under-eye patch cannot keep you safe from dark circles if you are continuously deprived of proper sleep and rest.

When applied to dark circles, the under-eye patches containing panthenol, caffeine, and soothing essential oils (like mint and lavender) can do wonders. However, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep yourself healthy.

Under Eye Patch For Puffiness

There are several reasons for having puffy eyes. It is the condition in which the under-eye skin looks like an inflated bag. They are also termed ‘eye bags.’ Conditions like allergies, age, excess salt in the diet, and genes can result in puffy eyes. Under-eye patches containing hyaluronic acid and caffeine help reduce puffiness off under-eye skin.

Under Eye Patches For Wrinkles

The wrinkle is a sign of aging. It is normal for an old person to have wrinkles on the face. The matter turns out to be a problem when wrinkles appear prematurely. Normal aging and having wrinkles can’t be a sign of trouble. But some people worry about the normal signs of aging and want remedies to remove them. Similarly, when the signs of aging occur prematurely, one should not neglect them. Stress, unhealthy lifestyle, deprivation of rest and sleep, unhealthy diet, etc., can result in premature signs of aging.

Maintaining good health and using the right under-eye patch to treat wrinkles can be helpful. Under-eye patches containing antioxidants, retinol, peptides, and vitamin C are best for this purpose. Make sure to check if the ingredients mentioned above are present in the under-eye patch you are buying to treat wrinkles. You will not get the desired result unless you don’t have the patch with the right ingredients necessary for your purpose.

Usually, detailed usage instructions are available on the pack of the patches. But you need to follow some other things like removing makeup properly, applying toner on the skin before using the patches, applying serum or eye cream after removing patches is not something you can overlook, to get the best results.

On top of it, you shouldn’t go for any anti-aging cosmetic product without fully knowing about it as much as it is important to read the product’s label carefully. It is also important that you see a professional dermatologist, preferably someone specializing in anti-aging treatment, to know whether an under-eye patch would work for you.
