Easy-to-Use Eye Gels
Eye treatment gels are topical products that have a lightweight consistency. True gels contain alcohol, which allows them to quickly dry after application, making it easy to apply cosmetics right away.
Some products that are classified as gels are alcohol-free fluids that are easy for the skin to absorb. Often, dermatologists recommend gels over other types of eye treatments for patients with oily skin and for those who prefer lightweight formulas.
Products for Diminishing Lines and Wrinkles
Many eye treatment gels made by dermatologist skin care brands are anti-aging formulas
that soften crow's feet and diminish the appearance of deeper creases in the eye area. These products may deliver results in a number of ways.
Many gels use vitamin C to support collagen production in the eye area in order to firm the skin. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, so gels that contain the ingredient can shield the under eye skin from the effects of free radicals that contribute to the development of wrinkles.
You can find other antioxidants in eye gels as well. Anti-aging eye gels may also contain hyaluronic acid, a moisturizer that plumps the skin and makes crow's feet less visible, and peptides, which help repair damaged tissue.
Formulas for Addressing Other Imperfections
Some eye gels are formulated to address dark circles and puffiness. These products typically feature ingredients, such as caffeine, that increase circulation to the under eye skin. Skin brighteners like vitamin C and licorice extract are also found in some gels.
