5 Best Eye Creams for Men

 

by

If you remember learning to Dougie and Bruce Springsteen crotch sliding into the camera at the Superbowl, it’s time for an eye cream. 

Experts agree the best time to start using an eye cream is not later than your thirties. What does that mean for you if you’re in your twenties? Go ahead and start now. Trust us, the eyes you have at forty will thank you. 

In terms of signs of aging, the eyes are the place that age first and they often age the fastest. 

This is large because the skin surrounding the eye area is some of the thinnest you’ll find anywhere on your body, making it much more susceptible to damage from free radicals (more on that later), and looking older than you actually are. 

At Disco, we know the eyes have it, and taking care of them definitely has our vote. 

We’ll talk about what ingredients help your eyes maintain their youthfulness, address some common issues you might be experiencing (like dark circles), and give you some recs for the best eye creams for men.

Why Do I Need an Eye Cream?

Don’t recognize what you see in the mirror anymore? You’re either having a psychotic break or getting older. We’re gonna assume the latter. You’re not getting any younger, and the skin around your eyes is showing it. That’s why you need eye cream. 

Need more reasons to use an eye cream? We’ve got them. 

Eye Skin is Different

The skin around your eyes gets hit pretty hard by life. It’s incredibly different from the skin on the rest of your face. It’s thin (about ten times thinner than the remainder of your skin) and it also lacks oil glands.

The lack of oil glands around your eyes makes this area naturally drier and puts it at higher risk of becoming irritated. This lack of oil around the eyes is the number one reason why you need an eye cream; your under-eye skin just simply cannot hydrate itself the way the skin on the rest of your face can. 

Eye creams help you hydrate sensitive eye area-skin, which is the first step in healing and restoring tired, aging eyes. If you don’t feel like your eyes are tired or aging yet, keeping them hydrated can help you avoid this condition for as long as possible.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Your eye area is the first place you’ll develop fine lines and wrinkles. Keeping your skin hydrated will help fill fine lines and wrinkles and keep them filled, but for wrinkles that are really resistant, you’ll need something more. 

Two conditions lead to fine lines and wrinkles: 

  1. Age. It’s inevitable. You get older, the structures in your skin begin to weaken. Collagen production slows, the skin under your eyes sags, and you end up with wrinkled, pruney skin under your eyes that reminds you of your grandpa. 

  2. Free radical damage. Free radicals aren’t hippies waving signs about progressive ideas, they’re unbalanced molecules that can damage your skin cells. Free radicals are missing an electron (they need two to be balanced). They go in search of other molecules so they can steal an electron from them. 

    When a free radical steals an electron from a healthy molecule, the cell where that molecule lives is damaged. That damage appears in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and an overall loss of elasticity.

    You need antioxidants to fight off free radicals. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving up one of their electrons, warding off free radical damage to your skin cells. 

You can’t stop aging, but you can fight the pace. You can use an eye cream for men that specifically targets fine lines and wrinkles, boosts collagen production, and helps prevent them from getting deeper. 

You can also do something to prevent free radical damage, by using an eye cream that contains antioxidants. 

Bags Under the Eyes

You’ve never been accused of having baggage, but those puffy eyes tell a different story. Bags under the eyes are a condition a lad of any age can experience. You can get puffy eyes for many reasons: 

  • Not enough sleep
  • Sleeping too much
  • Aging 
  • Too much salty food before bed
  • Heredity
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol use

Regardless of why you have bags under your eyes, you just want them gone. Sounds like a pretty good reason to use an eye cream to us.

Dark Circles Under Your Eyes

You didn’t choose the raccoon life, the raccoon life chose you. Dark circles under your eyes make you look tired and sick. They can happen from not sleeping enough, heredity, having allergies, or just from getting older. 

Dark circles usually happen because the skin under the eyes is thin and blood and fluid that collects below your eyes is more visible. Eye creams can target dark circles, correcting the discoloration and helping brighten and even out skin tone. 

5 Best Eye Creams for Men

You know what they are, and you know why you need them. Here are the top five ingredients we recommend for making the best eye creams for men. 

1. Caffeine

You rely on it to get you going every morning, and you can let your eyes rely on it, too. Caffeine helps tighten droopy eye skin, reducing the appearance of baggy eyes and giving your skin an overall firmer appearance. 

Caffeine also has antioxidant properties, which means applying it before you hit the door will help protect your under-eye skin from free radical damage. 

Got skin under your eyes that’s irritated? Caffeine has a soothing effect on the skin, so it can help skin that is red, itchy, or uncomfortable feel calm and experience less irritation. 

2. Pycnogenol

Never heard of it? We’re not surprised. This little-known ingredient is derived from the French maritime pine tree and does double duty in terms of eye care. Pycnogenol not only helps deflate bags under your eyes, but also helps brighten your under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles. 

All-natural and plant-based, pycnogenol also acts as an antioxidant, helping to further protect your skin from oxidative stress that can cause premature skin aging. 

3. Niacinamide

Your mom always told you to take your vitamins, and this form of vitamin B3 is the perfect solution for restoring sensitive under-the-eye skin. Niacinamide is an excellent, all-natural, anti-aging ingredient that helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother skin texture. 

Niacinamide also helps to brighten and even out skin tone, helping those dark, shadowy areas under the eyes match the rest of your face. 

4. Jojoba Seed Oil

Super hydrating jojoba seed oil is a natural humectant, which means it’s excellent at keeping your skin hydrated. Jojoba seed oil helps pull water and moisture into your skin, holding it within your skin cells to keep it moisturized. 

The jojoba seed oil also helps form a protective barrier on your skin to help seal moisture in. It’s one of our favorite ingredients for adding moisture to your skin without the use of heavy synthetic ingredients.

5. Eucalyptus Oil

This all-natural oil is expert at helping your skin retain moisture itself. Eucalyptus oil raises your skin’s level of ceramides. Ceramides are fatty lipids in your skin that help your skin retain moisture. By increasing your ceramide level, your skin is more able to hydrate itself.

How to Use Eye Cream Like a Man

We understand it already took some convincing to get you to use an eye cream. You don’t have time for fancy creams and elixirs...but you also really hate looking like a tired, old man. 

Disco’s Repairing Eye Stick to the rescue. Our stick is the ultimate in men’s eye treatments. Not only does it contain every single ingredient that’s been proven most beneficial for men’s eye skin, but it’s also easy to use and fuss-free. 

Simply swipe it on in the morning, and watch dark circles and bags disappear. Niacinamide, jojoba oil, and eucalyptus oil smooth out wrinkles and help protect your eye skin while you work harder at doing man stuff-like pretending you know about car engines and lowkey stressing about hair loss. 

Let’s Disco

Why Disco for your skin care? First of all, you probably don’t even have skin care (no, a bar of soap doesn’t count). 

Disco is the skin care line founded by a man and formulated specifically to work with men’s skin. Our entire line helps keep the pH balance of your skin in a healthy range, so you can look sexy with minimal effort. 

Your eyes tell a lot about you. Don’t let them say you’re tired and old. You can take care of your eyes the men’s way with Disco.
