Eye Cream Vs. Eye Serum – Which is Right for You?

With an abundance of products available to us these days, it's hard to decipher the necessary from the nice-to-have. We often get asked why we have both an eye serum and an eye cream. 

Another popular question is: do I have to use products on my eyes?

We went back to the basics and put every eye cream question to the experts, read to find out, once and for all, whether you really need to buy that eye cream.

Why do Your Natural Healthcare's Eye Cream & Serum work so well?

We have created our creams and serums to work even if we took the CBD out of the formula. We have ingredients like green coffee bean. Apart from the antioxidant agents, green coffee beans are also rich in fatty acids and esters including Arachidic Acid, Linoleic Acid and Oleic Acid, which nourishes and moisturizes our skin to stop sagging, discoloration and other severe damages. And green coffee bean is just one of the ingredients in our serum. The eye cream has 18 ingredients!  

Do You Really Need an Eye Cream? 

Creams are designed specifically to suit their purpose. For the face, the consistency and texture will be different than for the eye. The skin tissue around the eye is at its thinnest, so you cannot have too many active ingredients. Additionally, some skin is better suited for an oil or serum and some is suited for a cream. Take the time to discover what your body responds to the best.

What is CBD skin cream?

Manufacturers often add CBD to oils, such as hemp seed oil, which they then use as an ingredient in skin creams and lotions. Research

Trusted Source suggests that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and may help alleviate the symptoms of some skin conditions.

Additionally, CBD skin cream may help with painful joints. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Trusted Source say that further research will help determine whether CBD products are equally effective as other pain medications, such as ibuprofen, in providing pain relief.

CBD skin creams most often use broad-spectrum CBD, which is CBD with either no THC or only trace amounts.

The other two common forms of CBD are full-spectrum and CBD isolate.

Can You Use Face Cream on the Eyes? 

If it's a face cream with no active ingredients, then it may hydrate the skin, but it won't do much around the eyes.  Additionally, chances of skin and eye irritation are increased.

Do You Need an Eye Serum and an Eye Cream? 

Just one product should suffice, depending on whether you prefer a cream or a serum. Usually you can tell immediately  that one of the products will feel better on your skin and absorb more quickly. You only need one good product. If you already have an eye or face cream that really works for you, an option is to buy the pet calming drops and add some to your cream at home. The Pet CBD has no flavor or smell so it will not mess with what is already working for you. It will just add CBD

Does It Matter How You Apply Your Eye Cream? 

We recommend gently applying eye cream onto the eyelids and underneath the eyes but not too close to the lashes because even eye creams can irritate the eye if you go too close. The motion with fingers is not important—dabbing or circling generally won't make any difference. But do be gentle with your skin and take the time to wash your face and dry with a clean cloth. 

What Ingredients Should You Look for When Shopping for an Eye Cream or Serum? 

Look out for hyaluronic acid for hydration and vitamin E!

CBD Dosage for Skincare

It is essential that a person read the ingredients label of any CBD product, as this will indicate the potency or dosage.

Most creams list the dosage in milligrams (mg). It may be best for a person to start with a lower dose cream and change to a higher dose if necessary.

High potency CBD skin creams tend to provide 8 mg per recommended application, whereas low potency ones typically provide 3 mg of this substance.

Environmental Considerations

A person may wish to consider whether the other ingredients in a skin cream are natural and where or how the cannabis plant grows.

Also, some CBD extraction processes use harsh chemicals that may be harmful to the environment and leave traces in the end product.

Cost Benefit Analysis

Some CBD skin creams may be expensive. A person should consider the price range and how often they may need to purchase the product.

A product may not necessarily be of better quality or have any added benefits just because it is more expensive, so research is essential.
