Have you noticed the first wrinkles or started to see bags or dark circles forming under your eyes? You might have heard about the benefits of retinol for improving the appearance of the skin under your eyes and wanted to know more. Olay has got you covered!

We’ve collected the answers to some frequently asked questions about eye creams that contain retinol, how to use Olay’s own Retinol24 Night Eye Cream, and how this potent ingredient can help you with specific eye concerns like dark circles and fine lines.

Should you use retinol under your eyes?

Yes, definitely. While it is true that retinol – a form of vitamin A – is a powerful ingredient and the skin under your eyes is delicate, there’s no reason why you should miss out on the amazing benefits of retinol.

Olay has developed Retinol24 Night Eye Cream so you can experience a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Keep in mind, because the skin around the eyes is extremely delicate, you need an eye cream that’s specifically developed for this area. Using your regular moisturiser instead can be risky because the skin around the eyes is particularly delicate.

What are the benefits of using an eye cream with retinol?

Olay’s Retinol24 Night Eye Cream with our proprietary retinoid formula with Vitamin B3 makes your skin tone more even-looking, smooths its texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles, leaving your skin visibly smoother and glowing.

Our Night Eye Cream also penetrates your skin up to 10 surface layers deep, instantly hydrates it for up to 24 hours and helps optimise your skin’s surface cell renewal, making your skin feeling soft and supple.

When should you start using eye creams with retinol?

You don’t have to wait to see fine lines and wrinkles before you start using eye creams with retinol. Of course, if you’ve already noticed bags, wrinkles or dark circles in the area around your eyes, an eye cream with retinol can help you tackle these skin concerns.

How do you apply retinol under the eyes?

Use Olay’s Retinol24 Night Eye Cream each evening as part of your night-time skincare routine and wake up every morning to younger-looking, radiant skin. Use Olay daily for 28 days. See true skin appearance transformation.

On cleansed skin, gently apply the Night Cream to the skin around your eye paying special attention to the under eye area and those areas where there are lines or wrinkles.

For instant hydration that lasts for up to 24 hours, follow up by applying Regenerist Night Cream all over your face.

Can you use retinol daily?

Make sure you read the label of the product you’re using. We specifically designed our Retinol24 Night Eye Cream to be suitable for daily use.

Does retinol help firm skin and reduce fine lines and dark circles?

The skin around the eye is up to 40% thinner and that’s why this area is where fine lines and wrinkles usually appear first. The good news is that there are state-of-the-art skincare products, like Olay’s Retinol24 Night Eye Cream, with which you’ll see visible improvements in firming and experience instant hydration that lasts for up to 24 hours, to help tackle these common skin concerns.

Does retinol help reduce bags under the eyes and puffiness?

Absolutely. The retinol in Olay’s Night Eye Cream not only makes the skin’s texture appear more even, but it also makes the skin feel firmer.

Although you might have some skin concerns in your eye area, there are things you can do to help reduce imperfections and stay younger-looking as long as possible. One is simply adding an eye cream with retinol to your evening regimen.

Harnessing the benefits of retinol for the skin under and around your eyes is something you can do each night to wake up to glowing and smooth skin.
