Dermatologists Have Spoken—These Are the Best Eye Creams for Fine Lines
Being self-professed skincare junkies, we're always interested in what dermatologists have to say—whether it's about the budget-friendly drugstore buys they swear by, the supplements they recommend for crazy-good skin, or which popular products they would never add to their skincare regimen. While we've already shared a list of some of our favourite anti-ageing eye creams, we had to know which products the pros turn to for reducing fine lines, boosting collagen production, and remedying dark circles. Besides, who better to weigh in on the ultimate skincare products than dermatologists?
Ahead, we asked a handful of professionals to reveal the best eye creams for fine lines. Keep scrolling to shop their board-certified picks.
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum ($70)
"Having a dedicated eye product is very important for people after the age of 25. I like the Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Eye Capsules at night," says Dendy Engelman, MD, of Medical Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Centers in New York.
"My philosophy has always been about streamlining efficiencies, which is why I like and recommend Venn all-in-one concentrate to anyone who wants to minimise clutter. The Venn all-in-one concentrate does not include fragrances and other ingredients that can cause irritation to sensitive eyelid skin," recommends Yoon-Soo Cindy Bae, MD, of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York.
"This is a great under-eye moisturiser. It helps to plump the skin and erase wrinkles and lines," says Gary Goldenberg, MD, of Goldenberg Dermatology.
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches ($63)
"This cream has hyaluronic acid, which is a great ingredient for rejuvenating the skin under the eyes," recommends Kristina Goldenberg, MD, of Goldenberg Dermatology.
"I love SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair because it simultaneously lightens dark circles and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Regarding eye rejuvenation, these are the two top complaints I see in my office, so I love having a powerful option to address them both," recommends Michelle F. Henry, MD, of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York.
"The retinol stimulates collagen production to diminish fine lines and wrinkles along with reversing any sun damage," says Monica Halem, MD, founder and medical director of The New York Dermatologic Surgery Cosmetic Laser Center.
"This Revision eye cream is a top seller at my practice. Complete with tightening peptides and hydrating nutrients as well as calming cucumber fruit water, it corrects, hydrates, and de-puffs at the same time," says Julie Russak, MD, FAAD, founder of Russak Dermatology Clinic.
"This peptide moisturises the skin and helps decrease fine wrinkles and lines. It works well on its own or in combination with Botox," says Gary Goldenberg.
"It contains peptides to stimulate collagen production. This minimises fine lines and wrinkles," says Halem.
"This product is good for dryness, puffiness, and dark circles. It is fragrance-free and therefore has a low chance of causing an allergic reaction," recommends Kristina Goldenberg.
