The first big step in an anti-aging routine.
For now, I’m focusing on starting small with eye cream (but I also love these Korean eye cream picks for non-retinoid days).
My current routine is using a retinol eye cream as well as a retinol serum every few nights. The Amarte Eyeconic eye cream (more on it below!) has been part of my nightly routine for a few weeks now.
In general it’s safe to say that a retinol cream for wrinkles that you can pick up in the drugstore or Sephora isn’t going to be as high powered as a prescription retinol. That’s not a bad thing by the way! I can’t count the number of Derm’s who have told me that retinol is the product most of their patients (including myself) choose to stop using. Prescription retinol causes a lot of sensitivity and a (potentially long) adjustment period that you don’t typically have with a store bought retinol.
Focusing on the eyes is a great way to get your start using retinol products. Many people start to show skin aging first with fine lines around the eyes. The Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream uses retinol in a lightweight cream to help hydrate the skin around the eyes and to reduce wrinkles.
