Puffiness under the eyes cannot be disguised even with the best tonal remedy - only heavy artillery. Dermato-cosmetologist Viktoria Honcharuk told what ingredients in eye creams help to cope with the problem and how they are indicated on the labels.

“The water and electrolyte balance in the body is constantly maintained at the same level. When it is violated, edema appears, which is very clearly visible in the periorbital region. This is due to anatomical features. The skin around the eyes is thin and delicate. The blood vessels underneath are more visible and the color is slightly darker. In this area, collagen fibers are loose - this is the first place on the face where edema forms. There are many reasons for their occurrence: inflammatory process in the body, hormonal disorders, disruption of the internal organs (for example, with kidney disease, edema appears in the morning, with diseases of the cardiovascular system, swelling increases in the evening), allergies, mechanical damage, genetic predisposition, eye strain, lack of sleep; excess salt in food. If swelling occurs frequently, see your doctor.Creams and masks can be used as SOS products before an important event. I'll tell you what ingredients to look for on the label."
Caffeine improves blood microcirculation and fluid outflow, helping to temporarily solve the problem of puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Caffeine can be labeled as: Glycosan Caffeine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract, Caffeine Sodium Benzoate, Bean Extract. It can also be found in proprietary formulas: Rovisome Caffeine Discontinued, Rovi Rovisome FEC, Caffeine 50% Cyclosystem Complex, Green Natural Anhydrous Caffeine, Caffeine Solution A.
Green Tea Extract (EGCG)
Green tea contains tannins - tannins - with excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They help reduce swelling and fight free radicals that cause wrinkles. Green tea extract soothes the delicate skin around the eyes.
Rutin is a vitamin P that is not produced by our body on its own. Because of this, routines are of particular value! It has a positive effect on the capillary walls, increasing their elasticity, stimulating blood microcirculation - it is often added to eye creams.
Ginkgo biloba extract
The leaves of this ancient plant have been used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine for a very long time. Infusions and decoctions based on them are prescribed by Buddhist priests for almost all diseases. In cosmeceuticals, Ginkgo Biloba extract is used in the production of creams for the face, body, eyelids. In skin care products around the eyes, its main functions are: elimination of puffiness, dark circles, strengthening of vascular walls, toning.
Dextran is a polysaccharide that is obtained from sugar beets by enzymatic means. Cosmeceuticals use dextran sulfate - a reaction product with sulfuric acid. This substance is capable of forming a thin film on the surface of blood cells, preventing them from sticking together and improving blood flow. In addition, dextran helps to remove excess fluid.
Escin is a mixture of nitrogen-free organic compounds. The substance can be easily synthesized in the laboratory, but most often it is obtained from the bark and fruits of "horse chestnut". Escin performs several functions: it binds to the membrane of the vascular wall, increasing elasticity. The result of its impact: a rapid decrease in puffiness. Aescin works best when paired with dextran - products where both ingredients are in the composition are quite effective and show good results.
