Should you add an eye cream to your skincare routine?

Should you add an eye cream to your skincare routine?

Your eyes are the windows to the soul; they have the ability to tell our unspoken stories but at the same time, they may reveal secrets we may not want to share. Olay scientists have discovered that our eyes are the “hot zone” of perception; they are where people look first and have the biggest impact on others’ perception of our age. To help women create the perfect canvas for ageless, flawless eyes, Olay created the Olay Eyes Collection, designed for your eyes only.


The Olay Eyes Collection is designed by Olay scientists through unique studies which revealed the urgent need for targeted solutions for the eyes only. Key insights found include:

  1. Eyes are the “hot zone” of perception. Olay scientists conducted an eye-tracking research to study where the eyes are immediately drawn to and focused on when looking at a face. It was found that the eye area is the focal point on the face from which first impressions and judgments of a person’s age and attractiveness are made.

  2. Eyes can look up to 14 years older than the rest of your face. From inside out, skin around the eyes is the driest and most vulnerable, aging much earlier and faster than the rest of the face. It was also found that eyes age the fastest and the most between the ages 20 to 50.

  3. Small improvements make big differences. Olay scientists also looked further into the skin around the eyes to determine which eye issues are most crucial to correct for noticeable results. Reduction of dark circles were found to have the profoundly noticeable impact on the perception of attractiveness, followed by improvement of wrinkles and puffiness for perceived attractiveness and youth.

Eyes are widely recognized as a woman’s most important feature – women spend a significant amount of time on eye make-up as compared to the rest of the face, and in recent years have been increasingly searching on the best eye creams on the internet. In contrast, when it comes to skincare, women spend the least amount of time taking care of the eye area.

Understanding the urgent need for targeted solutions for the specific needs of the eye area, Olay designed its first-ever complete skincare collection for the eyes only.
